For the longest time, the neighborhoods surrounding CityPlace were all one- and two-story bungalows and cottages, some of which had been rental properties for so long that the neglect from absentee landlords became irreversible. And as the demand for modern, urban living has increased along the US 75 corridor, this neighborhood — now dubbed East Village — has experienced a significant architectural renaissance with modern townhomes going up at a record pace. 

One such example is our High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans. This fabulous East Village townhome marketed by David Griffin & Company Realtor Don Neilson gives you a fabulous and bright two-story floor plan with sleek and chic modern industrial finishes that are a boon for frequent entertainers, empty nesters, and those who crave privacy.

It wasn’t too long ago when our own columnist Jon Anderson lamented the homogeneity of our traditional architecture, which runs profligate in North Texas suburbs. A hodge-podge of styles with features plucked from the comfort food of American residential architecture, Anderson wondered why we couldn’t simply bring back a modern aesthetic to newly built residential architecture. 
 
Well, we can, and we have. That’s evident in our High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans. This 2013-built modern at 5403 Bradford Drive takes a cue from midcentury modern design, but strikes out on its own with unique materials, bold colors, and a spacious, open floor plan that astounds. It’s a fabulous listing in the Oak Lawn Heights (near the Medical District) neighborhood.
 
“The home so appropriately represents midcentury modern architecture that many people think it is an older home that has been renovated,” said listing agent Don Neilson of David Griffin & Company Realtors.

Not in my wildest dreams would I have thought that from a hilltop in Forney you could get sweeping views of the downtown Dallas skyline. But that’s why the road is called Dalview, and it’s why this High Caliber Home of the Week has a turret from which you can spy our signature skyline at night. 

“The name ‘Dalview’ came from the views of downtown Dallas, which is crazy, but it’s true,” says listing agent Don Neilson, who says the Forney estate at 103 Dalview Road is exceptionally spacious and private and offers a 32 minute commute to the urban core, making it a perfect High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans
