Our Steal:Vicki White with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty has listed 8523 Eustis Avenue for $485,000.

Ideally positioned only six miles from downtown, Forest Hills feels like a secluded oasis away from the city. It’s a perfect place put down roots. And we found two of its gems! Which would you choose, the Highland On The Creek Splurge or the Midcentury Modern Steal?

Searching for that proverbial needle in a haystack? We found it! Tucked away in idyllic Farmers Branch sits this impeccably maintained, four-bedroom, two-full-and-one-half-bathroom home with a pool.

Thanks to an insider tip from resident staging expert Karen Eubank, we have a Friday Five Hundred in Plano that will knock your socks off. And the views from its second floor terrace to the pool and lake? Beyond gorgeous! Let’s take a peek inside and see what all the buzz is about.

Curb Appeal For Days

First off, this impressive four-bedroom, four-full-and-one-half-bathroom Plano gem has curb appeal for days! It sits on a gracious lot in idyllic Stone Lake Estates. We can’t get over the lushly landscaped lawn and fabulous brick exterior, but it’s what you can’t see from the front, that really has us excited.

Devonshire

Our Splurge: 5630 Stanford Avenue, Dallas listed by Sam Sawyer of Compass for $1.649 million.

Dreaming of Devonshire? Yeah, us too. Tucked away in a lush little corner of North Dallas, Devonshire draws buyers who want to shop and dine on Lovers Lane, hit the Arts District downtown, or take a quick drive over to Preston Center for a bite to eat with friends.

Bordered by Lovers Lane, Northwest Highway, Inwood Road, and the Dallas North Tollway, many of the streets in Devonshire share the same names with those you’ll find in University Park. Think Stanford Avenue, Caruth Boulevard, West Amherst, and Greenbrier Drive. These tree-lined streets are filled with block after block of charming cottages, fabulous remodels, and newly built custom homes that will have you at hello.

This week, we found two exceptional offerings on two of Devonshire’s most iconic streets, each with a prime location and stunning interiors, but with price points that are miles apart. One look at these beauties and we think you’ll agree, there’s a lot to love about Devonshire.

We love finding the best homes, in the best neighborhoods, for the best price, and this week’s Friday Five Hundred is all that and more!  First off, we love with the charming Craftsman architecture and ideal location just steps from Bishop Arts District, but the highlights don’t stop there. Cheerful landscaping? Check. Covered front porch? Check. Fenced back yard with a pool? Check. Doesn’t that classic blue exterior just scream “pick me!”? Well if you love the outside, just wait until you see the inside. We. Were. Blown. Away.
