Santa came early to Kessler Park this year! These two offerings are in the heart of the neighborhood and both are available just in time for the holidays. Which one is more you, the Whimsical Tudor Splurge or the Colonial-Style Steal?

Welcome home to the Regency Place Community. Listing Agent Bob Moran with Dave Perry-Miller InTown said the two-bedroom, two-bathroom house is like the Goldilocks Story – it’s not too big and not too small.

You can downsize from a big house or upsize from a condo. With the house on Highplace, it can all be yours!!! And again, this is a whole detached house with its own little lawns and no adjoining walls. Just so we’re clear, turkeys.

Stop what you’re doing. We have the scoop on a George Dahl masterpiece in Preston Hollow! The Imperial House epitomizes Hollywood Regency design at its best, with rare and elegant offerings that don’t sit on the market long. This property has panache, attracting past residents ranging from Elvis to Frank Sinatra to a current WFAA-TV anchor! And now, you too, could be among the select few to own a slice of Imperial House history.

Ged Dipprey and Emily Ray-Porter with Dave Perry-Miller InTown just listed a lovingly restored first-floor condo you have to see to believe.

“What I love most about this condo is its prime location,” said Lauri Ann Hanson, one-half of the Dwell Partners listing team. Oak Lawn is a fabulous location and offers tons of perks. The nearby Dallas North Tollway and North Central Expressway offer easy access to the city and when it’s time to get out of town, Love Field isn’t very far either.

You don’t even need a car or an Uber to get to great restaurants, shops, and salons. Everything, including Eatzi’s, is right down the block.

If you’re into low-maintenance, delightfully updated property with a private side yard, this Oak Lawn listing might be what you’ve been looking for.

Capella ParkIf you’ve never heard of Capella Park, finding its white-picket fenced environs might seem like the answer to families (or even downsizers) that are looking for both affordability and a picturesque neighborhood but don’t want to sacrifice a shorter commute to downtown and other Dallas amenities.

Located near the Mountain Creek neighborhood, the master-planned community is just off West Kiest Boulevard between Mountain Creek Parkway and Spur 408, and adjacent to Dallas Baptist University, The Potter’s House, and more. It’s in Duncanville ISD, but has a Dallas address.

It was this listing at 3724 Prague Mews that first caught our eye and directed us to check out Capella Park. (more…)

LakewoodAre you a Whole Foods family, or a Trader Joes, or maybe both? We found a gorgeous Mediterranean-style duplex for rent that is perfect for every one of those choices, since it’s close to both Lower Greenville and Lakewood.

This pretty two-bedroom, two-bath home has 1,425 square feet, and is located at 6025 Lewis Street. With an updated kitchen and a washer and dryer, it feels like single-family home living. (more…)

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.

Elm StreetSometimes in the course of finding homes to feature through the week, we end up traveling down a bit of a wormhole when the abode’s history comes up. But our trip to the past for the history of this historic downtown Dallas loft was the unusual for a Tuesday Two Hundred.

We first found this unit in 509 Elm Street and fell in love with all the touches that make a loft condo charming — the exposed brick and beams, the concrete floors, the tons of light.

But when you know a building is likely historic, it almost behooves you to go look up what you can about that history — so we did just that.

Although the listing says it was built in 1930, other sourcing has its build date as 1901, 1906, and 1925.
