Franklin Street in Keistwood that’s listed by Diane Sherman of David Griffin & Company for only $392,000.

Dilbeck midcentury modernThis quintessential Charles Dilbeck Midcentury Modern in Russwod Acres is going to take your breath away. Wait, what did I say? Dilbeck and Midcentury Modern. Do those two terms even go together?

Dilbeck midcentury modern

A floor-to-ceiling fireplace, a hallmark of Dilbeck, anchors the house and provides the focal point of the living area. A drop-down screen is tucked over the artwork.

We generally think of architect Charles Dilbeck as the eclectic dude that was inspired by Tom Mix (look him up, my Millennials) to create whimsical homes with stained glass, iron gates, and fanciful details. Hold that thought. He also created a few Midcentury Modern masterpieces. This Dilbeck Midcentury Modern at 5016 Tanbark is one of the most striking examples I’ve ever seen. (more…)

Wood and walls of windows make this 1979-built home feel like an homage to Midcentury Modern and Frank Lloyd Wright design, but has been updated with the clean style and amenities of today’s homes. This four-bedroom, three-bath, and one half-bath home at 6933 Delrose Drive in northeast Dallas is 3,835 square feet and listed by Marmie Leech of Compass Real Estate Texas for $1.65 million.

Designed as his own home, Dallas architect David Ludwick incorporated bringing nature into the living environment through glass window walls — a concept that architect Eddie Maestri later expanded when he and builder Jim Scott & Sons began the home’s renovation in 2017. Delrose Drive was featured on the popular 2018 Lakewood Home Tour and AIA Dallas Tour of Homes, the prestigious architect-curated home tour in Dallas.

Our Steal: Simone Jeanes of Virginia Cook Realtors has listed 6414 Dunstan Lane for $445,000.

East Dallas has lots to offer, and that includes the neighborhood of Ridgewood Park. Bound by Abrams Road to the west, Lovers Lane to the north, Fisher Road to the east, and the Ridgewood Trail to the south, this small enclave packs a mighty punch, offering quick access to White Rock Lake and major Dallas thoroughfares, as well as fantastic home values. One look at these two beauties in our latest Splurge vs. Steal and you’ll see Ridgewood Park is worth a look.

Which one is more “you,” the Trammel Drive splurge or the Dilbeck-inspired steal? We would love to hear in the comments.
