Los Arboles

If you love the privacy and security afforded by a gated community you’d be hard pressed to find anything that comes close to this Rogers-Ford masterpiece at 3 Robledo Drive in the Los Arboles neighborhood. (more…)

 

Character — it’s what is missing in so many homes today. Sure, we love Agreeable Gray walls with white trim. You cannot go wrong with those choices, but if you want to create a bit of character, color helps.  When we spotted this Preston Hollow family compound at 5134 Kelsey Road with some bold color statements, we were smitten. After all, when you’re trying to sell a house, you want potential buyers to remember it, and they will remember this one. It’s not only filled with character and color, but it’s  also tasteful, stylish, completely updated, and move-in ready. Even at $2.65 million, we see this one moving fast. (more…)

Kessler Park Tudor

If you’re in the market for a Kessler Park Tudor with a backyard that has no less than five areas for entertaining, stop reading and call Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s listing agent Jenni Stolarski immediately. This is one hot property, and mark my words — it will be pending by next week.

It’s always a challenge to bring you move-in ready properties, especially under a million dollars. And when we find them, they go fast.

Crest Haven Place contemporary

The Crest Haven Place contemporary stunner at 8418 Lakemont  Dr. is one of our three featured open houses this week.

Just west of Bluffview, one of the gorgeous neighborhoods of Dallas, is Crest Haven Place. It shares the appealing general location of Bluffview, and is a neighborhood in transition. Many incredible luxury builds are going up there, like the Crest Haven Place contemporary that tops our CandysDirt.com Dallas Open Houses of the Week column. 

This week, our houses range in price from $414,900 to $1,137,500. In addition to the Crest Haven Place contemporary, there’s a swanky One Arts Plaza condo and a Junius Heights Craftsman. Let us know what you think of our choices, and if you know of any we should feature next week!

I swear, every time I walk into a unit at the Stoneleigh Residences, I think I have seen the most beautiful condo in Dallas. It just gets better every time.

But this time, I actually may have seen the best home here ever, and it belongs to a very tall sports legend.

Dallas Mavericks head basketball coach Rick Carlisle and his wife, Donna Carlisle, are selling a scrumptious home on the 15th floor. With three bedrooms, three full en suite and one half bath, formals and huge den you get a whopping 3948 square feet of sky-high living which is, frankly, perfect: not so high the vertigo sets in, but high enough to get a stunning 360 degree view of Dallas from the Gold Towers on Central all the way to Downtown and the bridges southward.

And it has been decked out in transitional sophisticate, so light, airy and perfect it reminds me of a free throw. Seriously, this is move-in while they are moving-out ready: the concierge will bring your toothbrush.

Some houses just seem to have it all, and boy, are we lucky when they hit the market. Our Inwood Home of the Week at 3708 Greenbrier is a stunning University Park traditional with transitional influences. It was pretty flawless when it was built in 2013, but the present owners took it a step further, adding their stamp to this 6,717-square-foot home. The result is three stories with five bedrooms, six full and one powder baths, and every part of the home is elegant and livable. It can be hard to combine those two things, but it’s been beautifully executed here.

French chateau
I have had a love affair with this Preston Hollow French chateau at 5939 Deloache Avenue longer than I can remember. It began a couple of years after it was built in 1985. I was a photography stylist scouting locations for Neiman Marcus. The directive was to find the most beautiful French estate possible for a Christmas catalog shoot. We were advertising, of all things, bright red trash bags with the Neiman’s logo emblazoned on them — in which to ostensibly dispose of your Christmas wrapping paper. A uniformed butler was to hold the bag gingerly on the steps of the chateau. So off I went to scout.
