8676 Langdale AHidden in East Lake Highlands near Northwest Highway and Plano Road is one of the largest collections of modern houses in Dallas, and some are still affordable, like the listing at 8676 Langdale Circle.

Designed by architect Jack R. Yardley and built in 1976, this looker is listed by Brandon Stewart with David Griffin & Company for $360,000.

Located on a corner lot in the secluded enclave of Mediterranean Gardens, this house is a 2-2 with 1,795 square feet, designed by Yardley for his then mother-in-law while he lived next door. (more…)

This is the exact kind of home that gives Dallas real estate its great reputation for beautiful, new homes that are so affordable you can snap them right up like shoes, almost. And by the way, since this is new construction by master builder Jeff Dworkin JLD Custom Homes—one of my faves. Naturally, you won’t hear about this sale in Case-Shiller (I hear five peeps are circling this puppy). Talk about urban PC, this home has a walkability score off the charts: five minute walk from Greenville Ave shops and restaurants and a ten minute drive from downtown Dallas. You get four bedrooms, three baths, great architectural layout and a master suite that runs the whole length of the home, which includes a walk-in closet the size of a bedroom! Oh, and on top of that: granite counters, hand-scraped hardwoods, stainless steel appliances, tankless water heater, huge backyard and a 125 year-old tree in the front yard. $479,900. 5932 Richmond.

I am seriously impressed!
