If you’re looking for an East Dallas neighborhood that sits at the intersection of urban and outdoorsy, Lochwood is your ticket. Houses here fly on and off the market for a reason: people love the neighborhood! 

Lochwood is situated a few miles east of White Rock Lake, about a 15-minute drive from downtown and a hop, skip, and jump to LBJ Freeway. So why is the area so beloved? Think lush greenbelts, arching shade trees, a variety of wildlife, wooded areas, hiking trails, and creeks. And don’t forget the 12.3-acre neighborhood park with two tennis courts, a basketball court, picnic tables, baseball diamond, trails, swimming pool, and a new playground. There’s also proximity to the lake, Dallas Arboretum, and a host of restaurants and bars. 

Our Thursday Three Hundred at 11359 Gatewood Pl. sits near East Northwest Highway and Jupiter Road on a 0.33-acre cul-de-sac creek lot with the backyard overlooking a verdurous greenbelt. It has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living areas, two dining areas, and 1,657 square feet on one story, built in 1960.

If living large is part of your American dream, then homeownership needs to come with a lot of space. But every square foot costs more money, and houses over 3,000 square feet are more often found in the luxury property category in North Texas. 

But not always. In today’s Splurge vs. Steal, we’ve discovered two Dallas houses with over 3,000 square feet, each listed for under half a million dollars. One is far north, the other deep east. Both offer ample room (after room) to spread out and stretch your legs. Which one is your favorite? 



When a master bathroom renovation shows off its best side, buyers take note. This precious commodity can seriously speed up the sale of a house. 

We’re betting that buyers will love the master bath of our Thursday Three Hundred, where all of the elements work together harmoniously to create something unexpectedly special. Carrara Marble? Check. Frameless glass shower? Check. Sliding rustic wood barn doors? Check. It offers on-trend and timeless elements at the same time.

BEFORE AND AFTER: Behold the Power of this Richardson Reno to Attract Buyers |

We love a good before-and-after real estate success story and we’ve found one that shines in Richardson. 

The 1975 home at 1706 Yorkshire Dr. went from outdated to outstanding, getting 37 showings and four offers, one of which was chosen yesterday for over-list. That’s just one reason it is our Thursday Three Hundred

This flip is the work of Holly Montilla and her husband of Moxy Real Estate+Design, a new Dallas company that takes buyers and investors through the process of home buying and renovating with an eye toward luxury and a modern feel. 

“This house was one of our first projects with this particular investor and we love this style of property where we can open it up,” Holly said. “A big hurdle [for people] is the renovation process — they’re not able to do it on their own. We take that off our clients’ shoulders.”

This home has three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, one half bath, two living areas, and 2,047 square feet on one story, built in 1975.
