Caruth Hills

Take a Sunday stroll to this Caruth Hills home from 2-4 p.m. Feb. 17, listed by Tonya Peek of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage – Frisco.

If you’ve been looking to jump into the Caruth Hills neighborhood, this minimal ranch-style home at 7533 Centenary Ave. is a four-bedroom and three-bath gem with 1,976-square-feet to love. Just imagine the possibilities your personal style could have on this lovely home built in 1951.

The gourmet kitchen features glass-front cabinets, granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances including a double oven, five-burner gas cooktop, and mini wine refrigerator. A breakfast nook isn’t a small nook after all, which overlooks and opens up to the backyard.  (more…)

Hi ho, hi ho, it’s off to buy we go!

Head to the very center of the Disney streets neighborhood in Midway Hills and you’ll find this sweet 1957 midcentury modern home at 11136 Dwarfs Circle. We’re pretty sure this one would have Snow White seriously considering ditching the castle. She’ll probably bring the prince with her, though.

After hitting the market only 11 days ago, it was already under option, which is not surprising considering the lightening speed at which Richard Graziano of Allie Beth Allman sells houses. This 2,414-square-foot, four-bedroom, three-bathroom gem is a bargain at $550,000 because every single thing you would think to do to it, has already been done — and done extremely well.

GetMedia-5I miss Don Draper, badly, especially when I see a home that would suit him during his early years, before he was about to teach the world to sing in three-part harmony. I think he and Betty would have been super happy hanging out by the pool and grilling burgers at 10450 Lake Gardens Drive. The kids could have attended Hexter Elementary, a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, and donned their Breton T-shirts to sail on White Rock Lake. If you long for the Mad Men, midcentury modern lifestyle look, jump in the Oldsmobile Dynamic 88 (or the Prius), tool on over to Lake Gardens, between Peavy and Easton and clap your eyes on this crisp, clean 2,521 square feet of contemporary bliss, listed by Terri Gum of Ebby Halliday Realtors for $534,900.

As much as we talk about the demand for walkable housing, I have to admit that sometimes I want to high-tail it out of the land of potholes and title loan shops for the plush, green lawns and HOAs of Allen. I mean, they have some award-winning city government, great schools, and attractive prices for prime dirt. The suburbs never looked so good.

But not only is this cute Twin Creeks home just spectacular from the curb, it has a backyard you’re going to just die for. Jump to see inside this luxe listing from Vivo Realty Group‘s Bonnie Ottosen.
