“This is definitely the gem of Sondra Drive that is nestled in the heart of Lakewood!” gushed Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate’s Matthew Edwards when I asked him about his brand new listing. The home is not only a newer build in one of Dallas’ most sought-after neighborhoods, but it the location is beyond enviable, making it a shoo-in for our High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans.
Of course, Lakewood is teeming with stellar homes of all ages and sizes, but homes on Sondra Drive are particularly sought after because of the private feel of the narrow, tree-lined streets. Plus, you’re so close to everything.
“This property lives wonderfully and has so many great amenities,” Edwards added. “It’s within walking distance to Lakewood Elementary and White Rock Lake!”
It’s true. Sondra Drive has twice the appeal of other Lakewood locations thanks to its proximity to Lakewood Elementary and its distance from the main thoroughfares that traverse the neighborhood. But if you’re a homebody like me, what you’ll really love the backyard, which has a great pool, spa, outdoor kitchen, fireplace, and a tidy lawn that will mean you’ll have plenty of room outside to keep both kids and parents happy no matter the season. No need for KayCee Pool memberships here!
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!
As East Dallas becomes increasingly dense, it has also become increasingly modern, with several architects finding an opportunity to leave there mark on rapidly redeveloping areas. One such enclave, East Village’s Deere Park, has become a magnet for modern architecture, some of which is both beautifully designed and exceptionally livable.
“This home is located in a neighborhood of many distinguished architect-designed modern townhomes,” Griffin said. “The two-story floor plan is among the best I’ve ever seen.”
That’s high praise from a Realtor with the kind of experience that Griffin can claim.
Some homeowners see a house as so much more than a place they come home to at the end of the day. For that special breed of owner that falls in love with a historic home for its charm and character, they become stewards of its history.
Thankfully, the owners of 1215 N. Winnetka were the kind of stewards that poured so much time and so many resources into this stunning Spanish Colonial. This home, a fresh listing from David Griffin and Company Realtor Robert Kucharski, was an obvious choice for our High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans.
“The stucco exterior and the tile roof are defining characteristics of this classic Spanish Colonial,” Kucharski said. “And it’s located in the heart of Kessler Park, too.”
There are so many incredible historic details in this 1921-built home that it’s an endless feast for the eyes no matter what room.
In North Oak Cliff, location is everything. And when a home has an excellent location like this Kessler Park traditional, it’s worth a mention.
Any Realtor worth their salt will impress upon a potential buyer that the one thing that you cannot change about a property is its location. Paint, interiors, landscaping — all of those things that make a house feel like home — are easily changed. Picking up a house and moving it? Not so easy.
When you’re describing a luxury property, the ‘wow-factor’ always gets top billing. Fancy pools with incredible fountains and fire features are great, but have you ever tried a great porch?
Of course, with summer temperatures at the backs of our minds with all of this rain, we have to mention that the pool is nothing to sneeze at, either.
