LakewoodYes, yes, it’s been a minute since the Fourth of July, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t point out this Lakewood beauty with perfect views of the Lakewood Country Club — and its annual Independence Day fireworks display.

Sitting on a large treed lot at 6519 Gaston Avenue, the Colonial Revival is an easy walk to a lot of Lakewood amenities, including the country club.

Built in 1940, the four-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath home is airy and cheerful, with wood flooring throughout. An eat-in kitchen boasts Sub-Zero and Viking appliances, fan fish-scale tile backsplash, crisp white cabinetry, and an island with seating that provides extra spots when the dining room table might be a little full.

Can you believe that July Fourth is tomorrow? It feels like summer is just racing by us, and Dallas is kicking the holiday weekend off with tonight’s Red, White, and Boom on the Bridge festivities on the Ron Kirk Bridge (Continental Ave. for those of us who aren’t recent transplants). The event concludes with a fantastic fireworks display over the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge, which will be easily visible from this 23rd-floor perch at Bleu Ciel.

“This Bleu Ceil New Modern in the sky captures the best, most sensational views of the downtown Dallas Skyline,” says Matthew Edwards of Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate. He’s the listing agent for this week’s High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans. With all of the stellar amenities of this building, it’s definitely the place to be for fireworks this Fourth of July, with short breaks on the resort-style pool deck!
