It’s rare that we see a clean, modern take on a Southwestern aesthetic, but this modern home in the White Rock Valley area of Lake Highlands accomplishes it exceptionally well. Designed and constructed by award-winning W2 Studio in 2005, this home is kitted with only the best materials, notes listing agent Kevin Sayre of David Bush Realtors.

Though unassuming from the front, this ecologically sensitive home in a sought-after enclave of East Dallas easily earns the title of High Caliber Home of the Week sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans. With a huge screened porch, beautiful gardens, and inside one of the very best elementary attendance areas in Richardson ISD, 8605 White Rock Trail is sure to impress.

Tremont IHOTW

Nestled into a grove of mature trees on a double lot in the Parks Estates section of East Dallas lies a stunning Tudor treasure at 6347 Tremont Street. Built in 1927 by Dines & Kraft, it overlooks the Lakewood Country Club and is absolute perfection. David Bush has the two-story, four-bedroom, three-full-and-one-half-bath Tudor listed for $1.65 million.

“One of the great things about this home is that it’s a mid ‘20s Tudor with all the original architecture, and a downstairs master,” Bush said. “That’s almost impossible to find.”

The house underwent two remodels over the years. The transition between the original home and additions are seamless.

I popped over to see this perfectly renovated prairie at 4834 Worth St.  this past weekend and was lucky enough to meet with the brains behind the transformation.

Stacey Warnix of Restoric Properties has always had a passion for architecture and design. She also has a passion for rescue, whether that rescue is an adorable three-legged Labradoodle or a neglected historic two-story house built in 1913.

4834 Worth Street

Second floor balcony overlooks Worth Street.

Warnix fell into renovating homes, although it was always in the back of her mind. She has accounting and law degrees and as life was moving her in those directions, she was also regularly helping friends with their homes.

“I should have been an architect,” Warnix said. “I wanted to be one as a kid. I’d hide in the closet and draw floor plans. There was always this creative tendency. I was an insane DIY’er. I would jump out of bed on the weekends and be at Home Depot or Lowes when they opened, ready to tackle a project.”

Warnix relocated from London to Dallas in 2009, never intending this to be a permanent landing place. Then, of course, she met someone and settled into the city.

“My boyfriend was active in real estate and has been flipping for decades,” Warnix said. “I got a front seat view into how he does it. Watching him gave me the courage to try what has always been my passion. I’d saved money and just decided it was time to take some risks and finally do what I loved.”
