6611 Harvest Glen Front

From the curb, this home looks like an art installation. Three perfectly pitched roofs, entirely symmetrical with landscaping to match. The obsessive-compulsive in me just swoons.

And while the home is stunning from the outside, some unique finishes and an amazing commercial-grade kitchen lend it the kind of character that some buyers love.

4 Cars Porte-Cochere

Let’s pull up to the four-car porte-cochere in front of this 1970s soft contemporary in Prestonwood and take a look inside.


Last week’s Tuesday Two Hundred was a super-modern and sleek one-bedroom, one-bath townhome/bachelor pad on Cole Avenue. This week’s Tuesday $200K is also perfect for a bachelor, especially one who would prefer to have an office and a couple of closets.

For the bachelor who tends to hoard a bit, I present 7416 Coronado #2. This three-story townhome has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a gigantic walk-in closet, and a small backyard for grill time with Fido. It has a great location and plenty of room, and a great price at $229,000.

At 2,172 square feet, this home is perfect for newlyweds or a young professional. And the location is perfect for outdoors enthusiasts, considering that you’re less than a mile from White Rock Lake and right on the Santa Fe Trail. The development, which sits alongside East Grand Avenue where it meets with La Vista, is just around the block is Tenison Park Golf Course, too.

Everything is practically new inside, including the kitchen, which has granite, stainless, and glossy cabinets. You also get two garage parking spots, which is kind of rare. This place would be perfect for a young guy (or girl) looking to gain equity!

So this is where he takes all his conquests! 9031 Clearhurst Drive. I feel like this is Testosterone Week here on CandysDirt.com with all the big, handsome, hulking homes we are featuring. Well, now I may just have the best bachelor pad of them all: this is the home of Dallas Most Eligible star Matt Nordgren. And yes, this is where it has all happened… the Master bedroom. Oh the stories those sheets walls could tell! I had to dial up my good friend Cynthia Smoot, since she is the expert when it comes to these Reality Show stars. First of all, she was super-impressed to hear that 28-year old Matt actually owned a house!

“It’s impressive that someone his age owns a fully furnished, decked-out house, that he’s   that far ahead!” says Cynthia, who added, blushing: ” I think he’s precious!”

The bachelor pad looks like a guy lives there… here… and decorated the place, but it’s very put together. I think the upstairs guest bedroom is charming. Wonder who sleeps there?

The top socialite for the 30-something set is not dating anyone seriously. Cynthia says he’s really focused on his  foundation, The Leadership Foundation.org.

The master bath is pretty knocked out, and you can tell those leather couches in the living room have been very, ah, shall we say, settled in.  Great kitchen with strong, solid, virile black granite counters, undermount sink (of course) and stainless appliances. The home is 2285 square feet with three bedrooms, two and a half baths and a garage, built in 1999 in a tranquil neighborhood (no one hears anything up here) called White Rock Villas. Matt is moments away from the new Lake Highlands Town Center when he needs an extra bottle of Merlot. He has a great floorplan, too, with the updated kitchen, large master suite,  upstairs gameroom, recently repainted deck and greened up back yard. Of course he turned bedroom number three into an office, doesn’t every guy?

The asking is $319,000, actually lowered from $329,000. But I think we need to jack this price way up because besides all the nice house goodies here, this home has a special Karma: surely Matt’s luck with the ladies will rub off on the next homeowner, or at least float around the rafters. P.S. Speaking of hot, check out Matt’s listing agent. I can’t wait to make him one of my Hot Properties!



NOW it’s a done deal. December 23 is the day Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom executed the lease on Unit 2604 over at the W, the former bachelor pad of Mack Hicks. Rogers Healy and Steve Rigely got in a lot of camera time with Khloe & Company as he showed them every condo available in downtown Dallas so they could be sure. Allie Beth Allman was the  landlord’s rep on this one, and she had been looking for occupants since November 28. Also, this unit leased last Super Bowl weekend for $25,000 with Travis Horton at Twigg Realty: that was a 4 day rental for  slate flooring, Miele appliances, stainless steel wet bar with wine refrigerator, wine rack, ice machine, Mother of Pearl mosaic tiles and marble flooring in bathrooms and, of course, Mecca automatic window shades throughout for privacy. Based on the $7500 per month Khloe and Lamar are paying, that Super Bowl weekend deal was a bargain!
