It’s the stuff HGTV series are made of, and considering the runaway success of Flip or Flop Fort Worth, we have to wonder if Daniel and Stesha Gearner are the next wedded pair to take on the mantle of the popular real estate reality series. 

With an unapologetically hipster aesthetic, the Gearners infused trendy style in this White Rock Forest home. Once a tired ranch, the couple breathed new life into this midcentury ranch, to great aplomb. Truly, 8715 Fawn Drive is perfect for a family of little deer, and therefore an easy choice for our High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans. It’s another fantastic East Dallas listing from David Collier and Jennifer Rice of David Griffin & Company.

There are a lot of things to love about New York, like the art, the architecture, and the lively streetscapes. While the city that never sleeps is a great place to visit, a lot of us couldn’t imagine living there full time. But what if you could have Big Apple style in one of the hottest neighborhoods in Big D? With this delicious East Dallas modern, our High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans, you absolutely can.

Few things are more magical to a child than a treehouse. Perched above the day-to-day, shrouded by the generous boughs of its host, a treehouse is a place for imagination and excitement.

Perhaps that’s why 3902 Fairfax, our High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans, is so appealing. With its warm schoolhouse-style, midcentury modern-inspired brick façade complemented by cedar siding, and its contemporary take on a classic gabled roof, it’s a throwback to childhood. It’s visually interesting thanks to its banks of industrial-style windows framed by two mature oak trees, all without sticking out like a sore thumb among the ranches that line the quiet streets of Mockingbird Park.

Not in my wildest dreams would I have thought that from a hilltop in Forney you could get sweeping views of the downtown Dallas skyline. But that’s why the road is called Dalview, and it’s why this High Caliber Home of the Week has a turret from which you can spy our signature skyline at night. 

“The name ‘Dalview’ came from the views of downtown Dallas, which is crazy, but it’s true,” says listing agent Don Neilson, who says the Forney estate at 103 Dalview Road is exceptionally spacious and private and offers a 32 minute commute to the urban core, making it a perfect High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans

David Griffin Realtor Janelle Alcantara wants to make something Swarovski crystal clear: This Forest Knoll Estates home is not a fix and flip like you see on HGTV. According to Alcantara, it’s a complete rebuild of a house, making the results virtually new construction. 

“The house was redesigned, moving the kitchen to a new location,” she said. “On a slab foundation, this is something that most builders would not even consider. However, this builder has a vision.”

That vision has earned this home at 4057 Hockaday the title of High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans. Alcantara said she’d be remiss if she didn’t note that the rising tide that is lifting the real estate ships across Dallas-Fort Worth has reached Forest Knoll Estates. 

“There is a $1.9 million house almost complete next door to 4057 Hockaday, and a $1.9 million house directly behind it. There are two new builds starting this month within a stone’s throw from 4057 Hockaday. Now is the time to buy — when the momentum of new construction has taken hold, but the home prices are still affordable,” Alcantara said. “And, if you don’t think that $950,000 is affordable, call Lisa Peters to find out how new loan programs make this kind of purchase a reality.”

It’s rare that we see a clean, modern take on a Southwestern aesthetic, but this modern home in the White Rock Valley area of Lake Highlands accomplishes it exceptionally well. Designed and constructed by award-winning W2 Studio in 2005, this home is kitted with only the best materials, notes listing agent Kevin Sayre of David Bush Realtors.

Though unassuming from the front, this ecologically sensitive home in a sought-after enclave of East Dallas easily earns the title of High Caliber Home of the Week sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans. With a huge screened porch, beautiful gardens, and inside one of the very best elementary attendance areas in Richardson ISD, 8605 White Rock Trail is sure to impress.
