When we first saw Sam Claussen’s newest listing, we did a double take. This practically brand new contemporary is located within one of East Dallas’ most sought-after neighborhoods — the Belmont Addition — but it’s absolutely perfect for modern family life. The whole neighborhood, often confused with the M Streets area, is close to the shopping and dining of Lower Greenville, and has access to some amazing parks and schools, but often features older houses that might have their fair share of issues. But inside our High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans, you’ll find the utmost ease of living without the stress and expense of an older home.

Mark Cain Take Team to Compass

Realtor Mark Cain has moved to Compass Real Estate. “The decision to move was not made lightly as I invested nearly nine months researching the company to verify its track record and growth path,” Cain said. “Now that I’m here it is clear that Compass was the right choice for my business home.“

Cain said he came away impressed with Compass’ management team as well as its technology, marketing, advertising, and support personnel. Also attractive to him was the fact that everyone works from a centralized location, and that the office itself is open and user-friendly with lots of space.

“The whole move was a decision to offer more tools and strategies that will enable me to better serve my clients,” he said.

There’s no shortage of beautiful Midcentury Modern homes in East Dallas — you just have to know where to look. In fact, there are quite a few in University Manor, which is conveniently located just off of Northwest Highway near the White Rock Lake DART Rail station. Of course, not all of them are so carefully remodeled as this listing from David Griffin, broker of his eponymous firm. The level of detail and care in the renovation easily makes this University Manor Midcentury Modern our High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans.

Of course, you can see the sloping rooflines and clerestory windows from the curb of this gorgeous Midcentury Modern, but the beautiful, Zen-inspired landscaping and copious floor-to-ceiling windows make this University Manor home stand apart from the rest of its ilk.

East DallasIt’s not often you find an East Dallas home with four bedrooms and two baths for less than $250,000, which is why Lauri Ann Hanson with Dave-Perry Miller InTown knew to alert us that she had what she calls “a unicorn.”

And that unicorn, which is located on 11336 Quail Run St., was a perfect candidate for this week’s Tuesday Two Hundred, priced perfectly for a first-time buyer or an investor.

“Not only is this Highland Meadows cutie packed with charm and all the curb appeal, but it’s difficult to find four-bed, two-bath within the bubble for just $249,900!” Hanson said. (more…)

Tucked away in East Dallas, less than four miles from the shores of White Rock Lake, this hidden gem at 5637 Emrose Terrace is a perfect example of renovations done right. From its espresso floors and decorative lighting to the new roof and radiant barrier insulation, literally everything in the home has been redone since 2015.

“It looks and feels like a very modern, nice home on the inside,” Dallas City Center agent Scott Noblett said. “You can see the pool when you walk through the front door, through the living room and out to the back patio.”

Lake Terrace Midcentury Modern

You’re probably already familiar with the Lake Terrace neighborhood of East Dallas, though you might not know it yet. Bounded by Northcliff Drive, Peavy Road, East Lake Highlands Drive, and Kirkwood Drive, this little area features some wonderful midcentury modern homes and post-war ranches, some of which have been lovingly preserved and updated. When David Griffin & Company Realtor Jennifer Rice told me she would soon have an East Dallas midcentury modern on the market, I was so pleased to find out that it was not only a splendid example of a Lake Terrace midcentury modern, but that it was the personal home of her and her husband, Joshua. 

Why is that important? Because he’s the Joshua Rice behind Joshua Rice Design — an interior design firm that does amazing work in several contexts, as well as bespoke furniture design. He honed his skills under the acclaimed Bodron+Fruit and has gone on to work on some of the most significant modern homes in the city.

So in 9810 Northcliff Drive, sited right across the street from award-winning Hexter Elementary, you get a high-impact capsule of midcentury modern design completely renovated by a celebrated interior designer and marketed by an especially popular Realtor. If that doesn’t say “power couple,” we might as well redefine the term. 

All the more reason to name this exceptional property, which hits the market this week, our High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans. We know you’ll fall in love with this Lake Terrace midcentury modern, so call Lisa Peters today to put in your highest and best offer on this one-of-a-kind home.

With East Dallas midcentury modern homes being as hot as they are, it feels like an exercise in futility to fall in love with one. Just as soon as we see one of these highly coveted homes, it’s snapped up by a similarly eager buyer before we can say “earnest money.”
 
Lucky for us, we happened on this week’s High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans before any other would-be buyer hungry for clean lines and natural light. It’s a fabulous Lake Highlands North midcentury modern listed by David Collier and Jennifer Rice of David Griffin & Company Realtors. 
 
It has all the hallmarks of coveted East Dallas midcentury modern homes that we ogle, as well as some smart upgrades and some details left untouched!
