downtown

The rooftop deck of this townhome in the Cedars is one of two homes in this week’s roundup of open houses with downtown Dallas views.

If you’ve been thinking about moving closer to downtown Dallas, but weren’t sure which downtown-adjacent neighborhood you wanted to live in, or whether you wanted to be smack-dab in downtown, we have some great options this week.

Every Thursday, we bring you our pick of the hottest North Texas properties in our CandysDirt.com Open Houses of the Week. These are the places you don’t want to miss that weekend. And this week, our homes are in Belmont West, the Cedars, and the Farmers Market areas.

This week, our homes range in price from $439,000 to $575,000. Which ones will you visit?

BRAND-NEW BELMONT WEST CUTIE

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

When we asked Coldwell Banker Residential Realtor Alex Prins where he was hanging out this weekend, he pointed us to this new construction west of the Belmont Hotel at 1213 Walmsley Ave.

“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…)

WoodrowEvery Thursday, we bring you our pick of the hottest North Texas properties in our CandysDirt.com Open Houses of the Week. These are the places you don’t want to miss that weekend. And this week, our homes all have one Dallas ISD feeder pattern in common — the Woodrow Wilson High School feeder pattern.

If you’ve never checked out Woodrow Wilson High, you owe it to yourself to investigate, because from academics (it’s an International Baccalaureate school, and routinely gets multiple distinctions from the Texas Education Agency) to fine arts (its band has been featured on the Today show) to athletics, there’s a reason it’s one of the most sought-after of public high schools.

And if you think that’s hyperbole, just wait until a few parents and alumni find this story and take to the comments or Facebook. They’re fiercely proud of this school, and with good reason.

So let’s take a look at the three homes (two zoned for Mockingbird Elementary, another zoned for Geneva Heights) we’ve chosen this week. (more…)

This week, our homes range in price from $474,000 to $899,999. Which ones will you visit?

Clifford Hutsell, beloved regional architect, is known for his Lakewood and Highland Park houses. After a visit to Beverly Hills in 1929, he so fell in love with Spanish Colonial revival architecture, he brought it back with him, designing a series of homes with his own exuberant and eccentric take on the style.

One of Hutsell’s Lakewood creations hit the market two days ago and we’re thrilled to feature it in our  CandysDirt.com Open Houses of the Week column. Every Thursday, we bring you an insider’s take on the hot properties you can see that weekend.
