Hollywood Heights English TudorSeldom do you find a home that has been beautifully renovated, yet retains so many original details. Our Saturday Six Hundred is a Hollywood Heights English Tudor at 707 Cordova. It’s one of the best examples we have seen in many years of how to properly take a 1933 home into this century and yet honor the homes origins. (more…)

M Streets English Tudor 6359 McCommas 1
A few years ago, Susan and Clay Phillips were looking for a bigger house. Their young family was growing, and they didn’t want to leave the neighborhood. When they spotted this gorgeous 1948 M Streets English Tudor at 6359 McCommas Boulevard, they knew they had found their next home. (more…)


This lovely Highland Park English Tudor at 4524 Edmondson ticks all the boxes. Timeless style, smart updates, great flow, and most of all, a modern house that successfully capitalizes on the charming look of an older home.

From the curb you could easily mistake this as a 1920s build instead of 2001 construction. This is only one of two spec homes built by Karl Hirschey, who was known for his hands-on approach. It’s a pity he’s retired from the building business, but some lucky buyer can move right into this beauty and know they won’t have to do a thing but entertain. They’ll also have bragging rights.

“The first owners were Brenden and Anne Marie Morrow,” listing agent Sylvia Scott with Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate, said. “Brenden was a captain with the Dallas Stars from 2006-2013 and is now retired from hockey.” A classic home and a brush with sports fame — what more could you want? (more…)

We know you’ve always wanted to see inside those “10 Most Beautiful” Homes they run over at D, I know I always did and still do! So I was delighted to be able to finally show you! This home at 3722 Cragmont, one of my favorite streets in a way cool ‘hood called Northern Hills, was feted in last fall 2011’s issue! I love English Tudor and this is such a classic.

This home reminds me of Sanborne House on the Dartmouth campus. It’s like you live where tea is served any minute! Located on a prestigious large corner lot with beautiful landscaping and lighted trees, the 1927 nee home has a slate roof, stone walkways, tall ceilings, leaded glass windows, beamed ceilings and WINDOW SEATS! The mosaic floored entry has a curved stairway, and overlooks the living room’s arched marble fireplace and large bay leaded glass windows. The dining room has two sets of French doors. It  leads to the glass walled family room with a theater system and a shoji screen, a room that does double duty! It overlooks the thickly treed yard. Look at that knotty pine paneled den with fireplace, built-in bookcases, walls of hidden closets and wet bar — reminds me of the Camp House at The DeGoyler. The kitchen is a dream with  limestone counters, Wolf, Subzero/, Thermador appliances, warming drawer, a pot filler faucet and glass tile backsplash. There is an additional office/living/flex space off the kitchen with a coffee bar.

The master is upstairs, bummer, but is large with walk in closet, updated attached bath that screams Ann Sachs, and attached office-study. The home has three bedrooms total, two and a half baths,  plus two additional bedrooms in 3220 square feet. Great quarters feature wide plank pine flooring, a built-in bed plus a wall of seating, perfect for a home office. There is also a garage, outdoor BBQ and flagstone side patio, sprinkler and security system, buried electrical lines. I don’t need to tell you how wonderful this ‘hood is, with Katy trail access and walking distance to Knox Henderson. Asking $1,175,000 and this would be a PERFECT downsizer/forever home for us. I am also very, very curious to see how the Most Beautiful Home label helps sell this home: stay tuned, stay very tuned!
