Oak Lawn Townhome
Our Saturday Six Hundred at 4010 Lemmon Tree Place is a stylish and sophisticated Oak Lawn townhome. Anyone moving from an urban center like San Francisco or New York is going to feel right at home here.

Oak Lawn has long been a hip, friendly, eclectic neighborhood. Walk Score gives it an incredible 93, meaning you don’t need a car for daily errands. It’s also flat, so easy to bike everywhere, and there is nearby public transportation — a city-lover’s dream! If you have kids, one of the best middle schools in Dallas, The William B. Travis Academy/Vanguard for the Academically Talented and Gifted, is six minutes away. (more…)


Our Inwood House of the Week is one of those homes you expect to see as a location for a TV series set in the 1950s. Mom is vacuuming in heels and pearls as dad fires up the grill for a neighborhood barbecue, jazz wafting out onto the patio. This North Dallas renovated ranch at 11439 Chicot Drive perfectly captures the character and nostalgia of the era, but step inside and you quickly move from 1951 to 2017.

When buyers select a single-family home, one of their criteria is of course, price, but there are other measurements of a successful home.  Yes, to an extent, location is dictated by costs, but the personality of a neighborhood isn’t.

There are blocks that regularly socialize and those where anonymity is expected.  A lot of single-family buyers’ criteria revolves around children … schools, playmates, etc., but never having been in that bubble, I’ll not comment on its subtleties except to acknowledge its existence. For the vast majority of buyers in the condo world, children are either gone, not arrived, or never will.

But once you decide to live in a communal environment, where your only “fence” is your front door, “neighborhood” becomes more nuanced. Because not only is neighborhood the area surrounding the building, it’s the area inside the building.  Let’s take a look at three condos, each with around 1,150 square feet, two bedrooms, and two bathrooms … and all steps from the Katy Trail.

5528-Springmeadow-1

Our Inwood National Bank House of the Week at 5528 Springmeadow Drive is one of the finest examples of an American ranch remodel I’ve ever seen. It’s also down the street from one of the most beloved American country music stars of all time, Charley Pride. Pride has lived in this beautiful private neighborhood for over twenty years. David Alan Coe also called it home for a while, and of course, Jordan Spieth is just across the way in Preston Hollow.

Preston Hollow Midcentury Traditional 6231 Desco Dr. 2
The 1950s brought us a lot of cool things. TelePrompTers, zippered storage bags, leaf blowers, and the artificial heart were all invented during the decade. The era was rife with innovation and architecture was no exception. This Preston Hollow midcentury traditional is a good example of how architects began to take license with style. Clients that were hesitant to go full bore midcentury modern could still enjoy elements of the look in a more traditional design. (more…)

By definition, “charming” means “extremely pleasing or delightful,” and that fits our High Caliber Home of the Week sponsored by Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans to a tee.

In fact, Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate’s Phillip Murrell, the listing agent for 5722 W. Hanover, couldn’t agree more.
