Our Splurge: Phillip Murrell with Compass has listed 4206 Buena Vista Street Apt E for $669,000.

As one of Dallas’ most hip and trendy nightlife districts, Knox-Henderson is where people want to be. Last week we couldn’t take our eyes off this Dave Perry-Miller-owned cottage! So much so we decided to take a closer look at the neighborhood for this week’s Splurge vs. Steal. Which Knox-Henderson condo would you choose, the modern masterpiece splurge, or the LeComte Homes steal? We would love to hear in the comments!

What’s not to love here? We have sleek lines, a perfectly presented home that’s beautifully photographed in one of the best locations, and we have floor plans! It’s like the Realtor got inside our minds and the minds of every single buyer that wants a family home in the Park Cities. Our Inwood Home of the Week is a Highland Park luxury transitional that flew off the market in five days. Five! We are not at all surprised. (more…)

Splurge vs. Steal: Two Historic Craftsman in Dallas with Character and Big Updates | CandysDirt.com

We adore the look of a historic Craftsman and certain neighborhoods in Dallas contain quite a few beautiful examples. 

For today’s Splurge vs. Steal, we’re looking at two Craftsman houses, one in North Oak Cliff and the other in Old East Dallas. They have the hallmarks of this style of house, including a cozy feel, welcoming front porches with supporting square columns, shingle siding, remarkable handiwork, and a simplicity of design that emphasizes natural elements. What’s not to love? 

American Craftsman houses started showing up around the turn of the last century and made their way to Dallas as early as 1909. Some of the examples are grand, like our splurge; others more modest. Which one of these houses is your favorite?

Our Inwood National Bank Home of the Week is an Oak Cliff Colonial that is a perfect vision of genteel American living. It’s beautifully restored and styled with timeless good taste. We think it would be an ideal location for a Ralph Lauren commercial, so location scouts take note!
