BRAND-NEW BELMONT WEST CUTIE

Open house: Dec. 8, 2-4 p.m.

“This new build is like a dream!” he told us. “Floor the ceiling windows, tons of sunlight, hand-scraped hardwoods, 12-foot ceilings, and so much more!” (more…)

east villageIt may be two days after Thanksgiving, but we’re betting that with the holiday entertaining season upon us, you might just be on the lookout for a home with great space for that, such as our Saturday Six Hundred in the East Village.

Listed by Brandon Travelstead and the Travelstead Property Group with Dallas City Center Realtors, this modern attached home at 4634 Coles Manor Lane built by Conrad Homes gives plenty of space — 2,650 square feet of total living space — for entertaining.

The three-bedroom, three-bath home has an open floor plan downstairs that provides plenty of room for a buyers imagination to take over when it comes to furniture layout — and also gives wide open space for entertaining. Tall ceilings, lots of windows, and white oak hardwood floors provide make the space feel even larger, too. (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…)
