New Lakewood Contemporary | CandysDirt.com

The new Lakewood contemporary at 6967 Kenwood Ave. is one of our three featured open houses this week.

Land value near White Rock Lake, especially on the southeast side, has skyrocketed in value in recent years. So much so that lots of older homes are being torn down to make way for new construction.

The new Lakewood contemporary that tops our Dallas open houses roundup is an example of that trend. This house is one of three we’re looking at today, which range in price from $339K to $1.299 million.

Never before have I seen a Hollywood Heights Tudor hit the market that was so ripe for remodel. This home, perfectly situated in the neighborhood, was built in 1926 and has many original features. Already, renovation-minded buyers have their ears perked up. The benefit of having a mostly original home is that there hasn’t been a hodge-podge of dated work done — it’s a clean slate and ready for your vision.  While it certainly has potential for renovations, you can move right in and do them at your own pace. And the price is definitely right.

Kelly-Nolan-7255v1 copy

Long-time Dallas real estate agent Kelly Nolan has joined Dallas City Center Realtors as Director. With over 20 years in the business, Nolan spent 15 year with Ebby Halliday before taking an 18-month sabbatical in Napa Valley. Rested and recharged, she returned to real estate, this time turning her focus to the commercial side. Now she’s applying her extensive experience to overseeing operations at the brokerage. We caught up with Nolan, who, nearly a month into her new gig, says she feels like she’s already been there forever. In a good way.

“I feel so fortunate,” she said. “I walked into a wonderful situation. They’ve embraced me. They’re excited about the future we have here at Dallas City Center. It already feels like I’ve worked here for a long time. It’s just gone very comfortably.”

Lake Ridge Estates

Color can be a beautiful thing. We’re often told to repaint our homes to a neutral palette when selling to appeal to as many buyers as possible. But some sellers buck that trend and keep the varied hues in their house. The results can be memorable.

Our Thursday Three Hundred will color you happy with its navy blue living room, sage green kitchen, bright bedrooms, and stripes on some walls and ceilings. It even has vintage lavender tiles in one bathroom.

Located at 9847 Shoreview Rd. in Lake Highlands’ Lake Ridge Estates, this property exudes personality and style with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,704 square feet on one story, built in 1958. No one who visits this house will get it mixed up in their memory with another.

Of course, there are lots of other selling features, like hardwood floors in the common areas and bedrooms, slate tile in the kitchen, an updated kitchen with gorgeous granite countertops, recent HVAC replacement, and a fantastic location near Northwest Highway and Audelia Road. It’s a hop, skip, and jump from the north shores of White Rock Lake and Flag Pole Hill. Bonus: it’s in the attendance zone for Hexter Elementary, which earns a “9” out of 10 from greatschools.org.
