Devonshire home

Some homes just leap off the page and get you excited for all its possibilities. This 1,879-square-foot midcentury home at 5736 Stonegate Road in Devonshire went on the market less than 24 hours ago for $650,000, nearly $200k under 2019 county appraisal value. Rob Scrickel of Ebby Halliday listed this three-bedroom, three-bath that had just one homeowner, a world-traveling Dallas couple who loved to entertain often.

Devonshire

Our Splurge: 5630 Stanford Avenue, Dallas listed by Sam Sawyer of Compass for $1.649 million.

Dreaming of Devonshire? Yeah, us too. Tucked away in a lush little corner of North Dallas, Devonshire draws buyers who want to shop and dine on Lovers Lane, hit the Arts District downtown, or take a quick drive over to Preston Center for a bite to eat with friends.

Bordered by Lovers Lane, Northwest Highway, Inwood Road, and the Dallas North Tollway, many of the streets in Devonshire share the same names with those you’ll find in University Park. Think Stanford Avenue, Caruth Boulevard, West Amherst, and Greenbrier Drive. These tree-lined streets are filled with block after block of charming cottages, fabulous remodels, and newly built custom homes that will have you at hello.

This week, we found two exceptional offerings on two of Devonshire’s most iconic streets, each with a prime location and stunning interiors, but with price points that are miles apart. One look at these beauties and we think you’ll agree, there’s a lot to love about Devonshire.

If you think it’s hard to sell a house in Dallas in the summer, you are wrong. I hear that refrain all day long, and it’s simply not true. Not if you have a house to sell like this completely reinvented Devonshire Cottage at 5635 Southwestern Boulevard. Our Inwood Home of the Week is a perfect example of what buyers are looking for today, and that may surprise you. (more…)

Devonshire Contemporary

George Jetson would be so jealous. So would George Lucas. When this University Park Contemporary at 4404 Greenbrier crossed our digital desktops, we did double and triple takes. We could not wait to get it posted. There is quite simply nothing like this neo-futuristic home in Dallas. Maybe anywhere. Oh and it’s open on Sunday. AND it’s in Highland Park Independent School System: win and WIN! (more…)

Devonshire Tudor cottage 5518 W. Amherst 2
There are only a handful of truly walkable neighborhoods in Dallas. Our Saturday Seven Hundred is an adorable Devonshire Tudor cottage at 5518 W. Amherst Avenue.

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.

5344 Surrey Circle IHOTW

So, what’s a Santa Barbara Modern you ask?

Take that typical Mediterranean style that comes to mind — you know, terra cotta tile roof, white stucco, etc. — but infuse it with a modern consciousness. The result is an architectural style that is not only gorgeous, but also appeals to a modern family. Our Inwood Home of the Week at 5344 Surrey Circle is a classic example of Santa Barbara Modern.

Meredith Ferrell and Brenda Ray of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International have the 6,996-square-foot, four-bedroom, six-bathroom home listed for $3.89 million.

It has everything. And we mean, everything.

“From the minute you walk in the front door, your jaw drops,” Ferrell said.
