Buckner TerraceThis week’s Thursday Three Hundred in Buckner Terrace is a testament to the power of a good Realtor (or two) — it totally escaped our attention when it was with a discount broker a few months ago, and is now on the market with Lauri Ann Hanson and Aimee Schreiner of Dwell Partners with Dave Perry-Miller and Associates, who immediately reached out to us to pitch this great listing.

“We want to get it all the attention it deserves!” Schreiner told us.

The three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath home sits on a corner lot at 3209 Sharpview Lane, which means, of course, plenty of trees and lots of backyard space.

Inside, an open floor plan makes for a great entertaining layout, with the heart of the plan at the kitchen, where an oversized quartz island overlooks the dining room and two spacious living rooms. (more…)

When it comes to life on this side of the lake, there are few neighborhoods in East Dallas that still retain much of their character like Lochwood. Located on the north east side of White Rock Lake, hugging the borders to Old Lake Highlands and the L Streets, this neighborhood is delightfully hilly, with long stretches of greenbelts that curve around creeks, huge parks, and great neighbors. And it’s no wonder that, with the still bordering on affordable real estate in this neighborhood, Millennials have been searching for the right place to claim their first home.

We’ve seen our share of flips in Lochwood, one of the few remaining somewhat affordable neighborhoods inside the loop, and though we’ve easily fallen in love with them, there’s something to be said about knowing when to stop “updating.” Need an example? Check out this cute Lochwood ranch listed by Lauri Ann Hanson and Aimee Schreiner with Dwell Partners Realty at Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate.

“Located in one of East Dallas’ best ‘under the radar’ neighborhoods, Lochwood, this three-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bath, recently remodeled home is a perfect starter home,” Schreiner said. “It’s within walking distance to Lochwood Park and close proximity to White Rock Lake, so you can enjoy all that East Dallas has to offer right at your fingertips.”
