5728 Swiss d

The home at 5728 Swiss Ave. is one of five featured this week in our roundup of Dallas open houses.

There are some lovely homes just entering the Dallas real estate market, and we’ve found five stand-outs for our weekly round up of open houses. They range from a stately Swiss Avenue home and a remodeled Knox-Henderson condo, to a Caruth Hills traditional cottage in HPISD. They range in price from $335K to $917,500.

We hope you enjoy!

3516 Beverly Front

This week’s Unlisted Home of the Week from The Unlisted is a home on a street that needs no introduction: Highland Park’s Beverly Drive.

But you won’t find this hot, hot home on MLS because the owners would prefer this beauty to be marketed on the down low, out of the big open marketplace full of looky-loos. Perhaps the owners are exceedingly private, or perhaps they’d rather test the waters among a more exclusive clientele. Here on CandysDirt, though, we can offer you an exclusive peek inside this incredible hip pocket UNlisted listing.

If you didn’t win today’s ticket giveaway, you can still purchase tickets to the home tour on the ABPA website for the discounted pre-tour rate. The ticket price goes up $5 tomorrow, the day of the tour, but you can still buy them at the door. Of course, you don’t want to miss the holiday market at 4205 Lakeside, where you can buy beautiful baubles from vendors who are donating a portion of their proceeds toward ABPA.

The home tour will run from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. tomorrow, Dec. 5, and is one of the best home tours in Dallas featuring some incredible Highland Park homes! We’ve profiled the gorgeous Georgian revival at 4000 McFarlin owned by Rachel Stephens, the cool contemporary at 3501 Lindenwood owned by the stylish D’Andra Simmons and Jeremy Lock, and the swank Anton Korn original at 4205 Lakeside, which is listed with Allie Beth Allman Realtor Terri Cox for $8.5 million.

This home on Armstrong will certainly be a tour favorite.

This home on Armstrong will certainly be a tour favorite.

To say that we were bummed about last year’s ABPA Homes for the Holidays Home Tour getting canceled due to inclement weather is an understatement. We full-on mourned, y’all. This year, though, not only can you use your tickets from last year to see four incredible Park Cities homes (including D’Andra Simmons’ gorgeous contemporary on Lindenwood!), but you can still buy your tickets at the advance price of $20! That’s a $5 discount over the price of tickets on the day of the tour!

Or, you could stay tuned right here to CandysDirt.com for our ticket giveaway! We’ll be giving away two pairs of tickets to this year’s ABPA Homes for the Holidays Home Tour, and you don’t want to miss your chance!

4524 Westway Curb

Yes, that’s right. I said perfect. Why? Because it is.

Every inch of this Highland Park home has been thoroughly and thoughtfully planned, right down to the last inch. The result is a grand home with an intimate feel, one that is perfect played up or played down. It could accommodate a range of decor styles, and thanks to its muted, transitional exterior, is appealing to a broad set of potential tenants or buyers.

Truly, 4524 Westway is a masterpiece of design and architecture, and you can live here for a recently reduced $11,250 a month. Listing agent is Douglas Ratlif, a new agent with Lively Realty.

What? Have some sticker shock? Well, let me tell you that this home is worth it. Jump to see why.

3601-Euclid-Pool-copy-533x400Oh how we love this home, it’s one of our favorites. I first started writing about 3601 Euclid back in 2008, when it was first built. And I have written about it so much I think that maybe, by now, I can claim a sort of Squatter’s Rights. This architecturally significant home was completely rebuilt in 2008 and is a shining tribute to sleek modern design, one of the best examples in Dallas.  Recall the dramatic entry with floating staircase, the Poliform kitchen (I’m fainting, always do!), the walls of glass overlooking the sleek pool, the patios, and grass yard. They even have the TV floating over the view! Sophisticated design elements throughout from zebra wood floors to floating floors, this home has won more awards than Richard Rogers. The glorious master bedroom is downstairs with beautiful, generous his and her baths. All other bedrooms are upstairs with the game room, all connected by a glass bridge walkway. (more…)

IHOTW 4232 GreenbrierThis home reminds me of a lady who is never without her pearls. It’s like good breeding stock. And what do you do when everyone comes into town for graduation? Well, 4232 Greenbrier has the A plus answers in a tidy, 5274 square feet. (more…)
