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. 

This week, our houses range in price from $299K to $1,199,500. Which one is your favorite?

This East Kessler charmer reduced me to giddiness. Avoiding the temptation to over-modernize, its owners have created a lovely balance between the home’s original charm and contemporary conveniences. And it’s a great size for the area at 2,613 square feet.

The walk-up is just lovely. The wide porch makes me hope that it’s just one of many in a neighborhood full of front-porch neighbors who spend temperate evenings out there waving to dog walkers and kids on bikes. Sigh. Leave me to my imagination!

This three-bedroom, three-bathroom ranch situated on a lush hilltop, 1623 Oak Knoll Street is listed by Ged Dipprey of Dave Perry-Miller In Town for $740,000.

Splurge vs. Steal: Victory Park W South Tower | CandysDirt.com

This is the second installment of a new column here on CandysDirt.com, Splurge vs Steal (read the first one here). We’ll be looking at properties that offer something in common, but have a big difference in their asking price.  

When Victory Park was being built up in the early 2000s, it was hailed as a major development in downtown’s evolution from a place that rolled up its sidewalks at 5 p.m. to a vibrant live-work-play destination.  

Our Splurge vs. Steal today is at 2408 Victory Park Ln. in the W South Tower — Victory Residences, designed by David Cadwallader and opened in 2005. Located on corner of Victory Park and Museum Way, these condos are a short walk to Katy Trail, Dart Rail, House of Blues, American Airlines Center, Klyde Warren Park, and the Perot Museum, with a Cinepolis Luxury Cinema coming soon. 

This is luxury lifestyle living, with 24/7 security, a 16th-floor zero-edge infinity pool, two fitness centers, fantastic views, signature “Whatever/Whenever Service” from the concierge, and housekeeping and room service available from the hotel. Let’s compare.
