Texas Regional Modern

Our Monday Morning Millionaire at 5006 Shadywood Lane in the Sunnybrook Estates neighborhood of Bluffview offers a rare opportunity to own the home of an architect. Remember what we always tell you about buying an architect or builder’s own home? Do not pass go, stop immediately, and put in an offer that won’t be refused! (more…)

We’re suckers for unique architecture here at CandysDirt, and when Rocky Zablan of Dallas City Center Realtors showed off this contemporary modern listing in Bluffview on day on Facebook, I’ll confess — I immediately asked him for more details.

We talk a lot about curb appeal, but this 2,162 square foot home at 9119 Chapel Valley Road is practically a magnet from the road. And you’d probably assume it was a new build, given how distinctly modern this contemporary home looks (although I had a few people guess that it was built in the midcentury range, too).

You’d be wrong. (more…)

Our Inwood House of the week is a sophisticated farmhouse that would have Joanna Gaines turning green with envy. A few years ago, Kim McAuliffe-Price of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s sold a charming cottage to her daughter’s friend. “I redo houses a lot, and I have a vision,” McAuliffe said. “But, I did not see this coming.”

Bluffview Estates MediterraneanHave you noticed that character is largely missing in homes today? There are plenty of beautiful luxury properties being built and finished out with a proven style that appeals to a tribal mentality. And, it’s becoming a bit boring.

Bluffview Estate
When I spotted this Bluffview estate at 5131 Shadywood Lane, I thought it was one of those iconic homes that had been built almost a century ago. However, according to the listing information, it was built in 2007. I didn’t believe it. I went to DCAD to see if maybe that was the year it was renovated and there was a mistake in the listing information.

There was no mistake. But it’s definitely not the same house that was built in 2007. Seriously, look at that façade. Then take a look at the second photo, and you’ll see what I mean. (more…)
