Preston HollowWhen North Texas is at the top of the list for corporate relocations nationally, finding a home perfect for an executive and his or her family can be a chore. It’s one of the reasons, Realtors tell us, that many who move to Texas rent first, and buy later. This week’s luxury lease, a gorgeous home in Preston Hollow, will likely check off several boxes for relo-minded families.

This six-bedroom, five-and-a-half bath home at 6018 Meadow Road has plenty of space for family and for entertaining, clocking in at 7,023 square feet. It benefits from a recent renovation by Mark Molthan, pretty much guaranteeing a functional and luxurious space. (more…)

Sometimes it pays to pay attention to Facebook yard sale groups — because our Rental of the Week today is a Midcentury Bungalow that came straight from one, after its owner let the group know that she was getting ready to list her Midway Hollow rental.

With 1,600 square feet of space, it’s got two large living areas (and one has a wood-burning fireplace and access to the backyard), which is something you don’t typically find in say, an apartment.  (more…)

MidwayWe’ve pretty much found a unicorn — a North Dallas rental off of Midway Road for less than $2,000 that is close to several great schools, great grocery shopping, and great dining.

This two-bedroom, one bath home at 4239 Bonham Street has a lot to recommend it. Not only has it retained all of its Midcentury, 1953 period charm (check out all the built-ins scattered throughout the home), but it’s got a great backyard with even more living space. (more…)
