Condos and townhomes are only going to grow in popularity in Lakewood, as more and more aging multifamily structures — including the brick duplexes and fourplexes that line many of the side streets off of Gaston Avenue — are razed. This development, built in 2006 right off of Oram Street, is a great example of a well-maintained condo building with beautiful finish-out and livable, warm spaces. Britt Lopez of Dallas City Center Realtors has listed No. 16 at 6269 Oram Street for $540,000.

Old Lake Highlands Home for Sale | Candy's Dirt

“Spacious” and “bright” are the keywords for our Friday Five Hundred, a totally renovated Ranch located in Old Lake Highlands at 10743 Lanett Cir.

Sitting on over half an acre, this property has the feel of an estate. It’s on a horseshoe street in the interior of the Mediterranean Gardens neighborhood, so it’s private. And with all the mature shade trees and established landscaping, it got “urban retreat” written all over it.

This property has four bedrooms with two master suites, three full bathrooms, one half bath, and 2,626 square feet on one story, built in 1964. The developer is Pytcher Homes, a residential real estate company based in North Texas specializing in renovated properties, and they’ve done a marvelous job. From the open floorplan and hand-scraped hardwoods, to a spa-like master bathroom with a frameless glass shower with body jets.

Hi ho, hi ho, it’s off to buy we go!

Head to the very center of the Disney streets neighborhood in Midway Hills and you’ll find this sweet 1957 midcentury modern home at 11136 Dwarfs Circle. We’re pretty sure this one would have Snow White seriously considering ditching the castle. She’ll probably bring the prince with her, though.

After hitting the market only 11 days ago, it was already under option, which is not surprising considering the lightening speed at which Richard Graziano of Allie Beth Allman sells houses. This 2,414-square-foot, four-bedroom, three-bathroom gem is a bargain at $550,000 because every single thing you would think to do to it, has already been done — and done extremely well.

6611 Harvest Glen Front

From the curb, this home looks like an art installation. Three perfectly pitched roofs, entirely symmetrical with landscaping to match. The obsessive-compulsive in me just swoons.

And while the home is stunning from the outside, some unique finishes and an amazing commercial-grade kitchen lend it the kind of character that some buyers love.

4 Cars Porte-Cochere

Let’s pull up to the four-car porte-cochere in front of this 1970s soft contemporary in Prestonwood and take a look inside.

Today’s Friday Five Hundred is definitely a unique one. You don’t often see remodeled ranches that have legitimate green building chops, but this one is LEED Gold certified and looks absolutely amazing. It just hit the market and has some really interesting aesthetic features to go with its eco-friendly side.

“We talk a lot about drive-up appeal, and I normally don’t brag about a driveway, but this circle drive is made out of crushed granite. Slide open the barn door entrance and forget about having to fish for your keys — this home you can unlock with the palm of your hand,” said Rogers Healy & Associates listing agent Kristen Muller, who just put 4239 Walnut Hill on the market for $565,000.

6202 Monticello Front

I was getting really, really, terribly bored looking for a home to feature today. First I thought “Let’s see if there’s something fun in Frisco,” but everything just looked the same to me today. Then I looked at homes in McKinney, only to have the same thing happen. After looking and looking and looking and almost at the very edge of being put to sleep by home searching, I stumbled upon a home that was so unique, so fun, so vibrant, it woke me up faster than my grande vanilla latte with an extra shot!

Truly, this Lakewood Heights Midcentury Modern may look like a yawnfest from the curb, but boy, you’re in for a treat after the jump!

5410 Vickery Blvd. is a stunning Craftsman bungalow with tons of updates!

So, I think I’ve already admitted this, but I am a sucker for Arts & Crafts architecture. When I saw this $549K listing from Haley Wagstaff at Dave Perry-Miller INTOWN, well, my heart went all aflutter!

First: Love the exterior color scheme! The red door adds just the right amount of personality! So thoughtful! So Feng Sui!!

The livingroom features a fireplace and plenty of light.

But inside, you’ll find tons of great updates that don’t take away from the Craftsman charm. Tray ceilings, gorgeous fixtures, subtle paint, and wonderful wood trim make this Arts & Crafts abode a stunner.

Check out those beautiful wood-trimmed windows and pocket doors!

This home has something that’s pretty rare for its 1920s time period: THREE FULL BATHROOMS! Can you tell I’m excited about that? There are four bedrooms and a study that’s being used as a fifth, too, but — THREE FULL BATHS! OK, I’ll rein it in.

Find respite in the large master bedroom.

The master bedroom is big and clean, and so is the dining and living areas. The kitchen, well, it’s got granite counters, a gas cooktop and custom vent hood, gorgeous subway tile backsplash, plenty of cabinet space, an eat-in island and — my favorite feature — a wine fridge!

The kitchen has all the updates you could want!

Add in the lovely pool in the backyard and, well, I don’t see this $549K Craftsman on the market for too long!
