Open House Sunday, May 20th from 1-3 p.m. 908 Haines Avenue in Dallas, TX is currently listed by Hickman Weber Group of Ebby Halliday for $589,000.

We love finding the best homes, in the best neighborhoods, for the best price, and this week’s Friday Five Hundred is all that and more!  First off, we love with the charming Craftsman architecture and ideal location just steps from Bishop Arts District, but the highlights don’t stop there. Cheerful landscaping? Check. Covered front porch? Check. Fenced back yard with a pool? Check. Doesn’t that classic blue exterior just scream “pick me!”? Well if you love the outside, just wait until you see the inside. We. Were. Blown. Away.

Midcentury Modern Arch Swank

Sometimes you get lucky, and an original midcentury modern Arch Swank-designed home falls into your lap. This seldom happens, because they tend to stay in the same families for years, and Swank didn’t build a lot of personal residences. To find one, you have to get creative or have an innovative pal helping you. That’s what happened to Dallas Realtor John Weber. (more…)

This three bedroom, three-and-a-half bath modern in Midway Hollow by builder Marc features two shipping containers.

This three bedroom, three-and-a-half bath modern in Midway Hollow by builder Marc Jennings features two shipping containers on an oversized, pie-shaped lot.

My six-year-old son has been obsessed with a new build in our neighborhood of Midway Hollow ever since we saw the two shipping containers on the lot.  

Every week, we drive past the home he dubbed “The Container House” at least once, and every time he says, “Mom, this is going to be the coolest house ever.”

So you can imagine the irritated kindergartener I have on my hands now that he knows I got to tour this new house at 3922 Rochelle Dr. I should also tell you that he’s completely correct — it is a very cool house.

Builder Marc Jennings and Realtor John Weber of Ebby Halliday’s Hickman Weber Group led me through the unique feature of this 2,400-square-foot modern house that features two parallel shipping containers. The $750,000 abode rests on an oversized pie-shaped lot that actually leaves a backyard with plenty of room for entertaining, kids to play, and even a pool if you wanted.  (more…)

4728 Bradford c

The medical district is a fast-changing neighborhood in Dallas. Our Tuesday Two Hundred, 4728 Bradford Dr. Apt. A, just hit the market and is a great example of the changes that are happening in that area of Oak Lawn. Lots of owners are taking the time, money, and effort to upgrade their properties and the results are often beautiful.

This condo is located in a garden-style community called Montebella, built in the 1950s. It sits on a 5-acre wooded parcel of land and the units have good-sized patios with the feel of being near nature. They’ve recently seen big renos to become modern living spaces with lots of upgrades not typically seen at this price point.

Apartment A has two bedrooms, one bathroom, and 936 square feet on two stories, with hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances, and granite countertops.
