It’s Friday y’all and do we have a treat for you! This HGTV-inspired jewel is a show-stopper and deserves some time in the spotlight. It’s brought to you by the folks at New Creation Group. And their work never seems to disappoint, so you know it’s going to be good.

With three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and over 2,000 square feet of upgrades, it’s a prize worth having. Perfectly sited in beautiful Lochwood, it comes freshly designed with fabulous interiors and countless high-end touches. Among these? A light-filled open layout, stunning chef’s kitchen, snazzy wet bar, and wood-burning fireplace. But it’s what you can’t see that took this home from beast to beauty.

Thanks to Jeanna McIntyre of New Creation Group, we have the scoop.

Best Craftsman Evaaah! That’s how Ged Dipprey brought this Winnetka Heights gem to our attention. And the Dave Perry-Miller agent is right. This three-bedroom, two-full-bathroom listing is the perfect Friday Five Hundred, offering an exceptional location and high design at a reasonable price.

“Frankly, this house is a gift listing,” says Dipprey. “Not to devalue my services, but let’s be real: Doesn’t this house sell itself? New everything and taken to the studs in 2015, I can’t think of a single design element that I don’t love!” 

Of course, the proof is in the pudding. And upon further inspection, we can see why Ged is so excited.

Our Splurge: Alex Perry with Allie Beth Allman & Associates has listed 5117 Vickery Boulevard for $649,000.

This gorgeous brick traditional is worth a look! The three-bedroom, three-full-bathroom home spans 2,531 square feet and is great for families seeking a lock-and-leave lifestyle.

“This property is perfect for someone who wants to enjoy the benefits that come from being walking distance to the popular Knox Henderson area without being on a busy street,” says listing agent Alex Perry with Allie Beth Allman & Associates. “In addition, there are only so many Single Family Attached/Duplex’s in this area. And as lot and construction prices continue to rise, the price point of homes like this should only continue to appreciate.”

Recently updated, it affords a generous open floor plan with two fireplaces, a gourmet kitchen, and is in walking distance to Knox Henderson shops and restaurants.

Our Friday Five Hundred is so hot, it received a contingent offer before we could publish this post! And we think it’s before-and-after photos are worth sharing. In fact, since Kylah Boyd with Texas Urban Living Realty listed 10621 Ferndale Road, it has garnered lots of attention.

The four-bedroom, three-bathroom, 2,700 square foot home with a pool, sits on a 0.24-acre lot in Lake Highlands, with an asking price of $560,000. But what really makes it special is its impressive remodel.  (more…)

Robert Irvin with Keller Williams Central has listed 5231 Goodwin Avenue for $525,000.

We have a thing for Tudors, and this one is no exception. Ideally nestled on Goodwin Avenue in coveted Vickery Place, rests a 1924-built brick Tudor so good you’ll want to call your real estate agent right away! Tudors, known for their sharp rooflines, arched windows and doors, and adorable floor plans, are great homes for cozy living!

Vibrant Locale

The Vickery Place Tudor offers a prime address on a quiet street, mere blocks from all the foodie and retail action. We’re not kidding. Living here means you’ll have Greenville Avenue shops and Knox-Henderson haunts just steps from your front door! But that’s not all this historic home affords.
