Buckner TerraceThis week’s Thursday Three Hundred in Buckner Terrace is a testament to the power of a good Realtor (or two) — it totally escaped our attention when it was with a discount broker a few months ago, and is now on the market with Lauri Ann Hanson and Aimee Schreiner of Dwell Partners with Dave Perry-Miller and Associates, who immediately reached out to us to pitch this great listing.

“We want to get it all the attention it deserves!” Schreiner told us.

The three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath home sits on a corner lot at 3209 Sharpview Lane, which means, of course, plenty of trees and lots of backyard space.

Inside, an open floor plan makes for a great entertaining layout, with the heart of the plan at the kitchen, where an oversized quartz island overlooks the dining room and two spacious living rooms. (more…)

Buckner TerraceIt’s not often you can find a four bedroom, move-in ready home at a price point north of $300,000, but when Paige and Curt Elliott with Dave Perry-Miller — Park Cities told us about this Buckner Terrace listing, we knew we found our Tuesday Two Hundred for this week.

“It’s a fresh, neutral, and lightly lived in, rare four-bedroom in the sought-after Buckner Terrace,” Paige Elliott told us of their listing at 5631 Everglade Road.

With 1,998 square feet of upgraded living space, this 1968 Traditional has a flexible and open floor plan with the formal living area opening to the kitchen, breakfast nook, and second living room. (more…)

Two HundredSo, here’s the deal — sometimes we have an embarrassment of riches, and we find a whole slew of one price point, which is what happened this week – too many two hundreds, all awesome, and not enough Tuesday.

So what’s a writer to do? Well, she takes those surplus two hundreds and showcases the other two she really wanted to show you but you know, it’s the Tuesday Two Hundred, and not the Tuesday Two Hundred Listings of Two Hundreds.

Got that? Good. Buckle up. (more…)

Tucked away in East Dallas, less than four miles from the shores of White Rock Lake, this hidden gem at 5637 Emrose Terrace is a perfect example of renovations done right. From its espresso floors and decorative lighting to the new roof and radiant barrier insulation, literally everything in the home has been redone since 2015.

“It looks and feels like a very modern, nice home on the inside,” Dallas City Center agent Scott Noblett said. “You can see the pool when you walk through the front door, through the living room and out to the back patio.”

During last week’s Dallas City Council meeting, council members unanimously shot down a proposal for temporary shelters spread throughout the city in recreation centers as a temporary solution to the city’s critically growing number of homeless. In lieu of that proposal, members of the Council turned their attention to a possible full-time proposal in one location in District 7: the shuttered Timberlawn Behavioral Health System.

Timberlawn’s unsuitability as the permanent location for a homeless shelter can be argued from at least half a dozen angles. The City Council’s attention on it has left many of the surrounding area residents, such as myself, baffled at the suggestion and fearful of its serious ramifications for the area we’ve invested in as our home.

Timberlawn, a former behavioral health center, is the oldest private psychiatric facility in the state and boasts architectural beauty in a building that is more than 100 years old. These characteristics may make the main building eligible to be recognized as a historic landmark in the state of Texas. Timberlawn maintains 20 acres of sprawling landscape lined with mature trees, whose shade and dignity contribute to the elegance of the property.

The iconic landmark formerly provided private health services for those necessitating in-patient care and sits south of I-30 within Dallas city limits, minutes from the bustle of downtown Dallas. But it is nestled within a thriving residential community formally referred to as “Buckner Terrace.” The neighborhood is composed of a heterogeneous group of residents whose pride and investment in their neighborhood can be exhibited in their ability to unite in protest of a potential homeless shelter. Close to 1000 signatures on an online petition to City Council garnered in less than a week. This petition, I may note, has never been formally canvassed in-person, but is the result of viral sharing on Social Media, spreading like virtual wildfire throughout our small community.

As residents of Buckner Terrace, we represent the gentrification component in an evolving city and changing landscape of Dallas, which maintains its position as a booming metropolitan area with a stable and prosperous economic job market. It’s a location many of us chose to move to from out of state for the promise of affordable housing and a stable, cohesive community.

And now, a single City Council decision could destroy it. (more…)

Just 5 miles east of downtown Dallas, the established neighborhood of Buckner Terrace offers a central location, larger lots, and most houses over 2,000 square feet. But the best part is the price tags: you can easily find a renovated house in the $300s and a fixer upper for even less. All of this adds up for big appeal and the sales there show it. 

Our Thursday Three Hundred at 5223 Elkridge Dr. is a lovely example of what’s happening in Buckner Terrace. Located near Samuell Boulevard and North Jim Miller Road, it offers quick access to Interstate 30 and LBJ Freeway. 

The house itself is updated for a more contemporary, open feel with clean lines and natural light, while balancing its 1960’s charm. 

This home has three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, one half bath, two living areas, two dining areas, and 2,243 square feet on one story, built in 1969. There’s an open house this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Want a sneak peek?

Barton-Graham Strike Again with Beautiful and Bold Buckner Terrace Renovation | CandysDirt.com

We’ve been following the remarkable work of a dynamic design and real estate duo making their mark in East Dallas. Today, we’re looking at their latest project in Buckner Terrace. 

Casey Barton and Raymond Graham are the talent behind the renovated house at 3214 Sharpview Ln. This pair have been at it for several years, turning dumpy dives into delightful digs with function, flow, and fabulous style. (If you want to see what we’ve featured before, check out this house, this house, and this house.) 

“This is our third flip on the 3200 block of Sharpview, so one of our biggest challenges we faced was making it look different from the house we flipped directly across the street,” said Graham. “We definitely have a look that brands us [with elements like] painted brick, a reflective address plaque, a pop of color on the front door, midcentury elements, geometric shapes, and mixed chrome and gold throughout the house.” 

Today’s Thursday Three Hundred offers those things plus an open floorplan, original refinished and new solid oak hardwoods, and a huge master suite with a to-die-for closet — and that’s just the beginning. The house has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living areas, two dining areas, and 1,950 square feet on one story, built in 1965. 

There’s an open house this Sunday, March 25, from 2-4 p.m. Would you like to look around beforehand?
