modern shed

The 1980s were an odd time in architectural history. There were some incredibly bad designs, and then there were the great modern sheds, like our Inwood Home of the Week at 5706 Over Downs Drive on the northern fringes of Preston Hollow. (more…)

Dallas has a lot of fabulous homes in neighborhoods that you’ll never find without the knowledge of an experienced Realtor. Our Inwood Home of the Week at 23 Ryddington Place is an excellent example of one of those hidden gems. Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate listing agent Megan Stern just put this Downs of Hillcrest contemporary on the market for $1.399 million. When you take a peek behind the front doors, your jaw will drop, and you most likely won’t be able to pick it up off the floor until you leave, if you can tear yourself away. (more…)

There are some really one-of-a-kind rentals out there, folks. I love seeing inside homes for lease that have cool architectural details that really set them apart from your generic apartment or townhome development. Neat materials, vintage fixtures, interesting lines, indoor/outdoor pools …

WAIT … INDOOR/OUTDOOR POOLS???

Yes, that’s right! This Farmers Branch townhome at 3459 Courtyard Circle has a partially indoor outdoor pool that is such an interesting feature. First  — how many rentals out there with such a hot location as this have backyard pools? Tremendously few, folks. But the personality in this three-bedroom, three-bath, two-car garage townhome goes beyond the backyard, which includes a putting green, by the way. (I KNOW, GUYS! A PUTTING GREEN!)

3459 Courtyard Pool

Beyond the gated entry that gives way to the front courtyard, you’ll find a front door that opens to the remodeled kitchen. With an island, granite counters, stone backsplash, pot rack and built-in appliances, you’ll enjoy the level of luxury this rental offers in the heart of the home. There’s also a sizable pantry and fresh paint, but you might be a little disappointed by the dated appliances.

3459 Courtyard Kitchen

There is tons of living space in this home, including both a sunroom and a solarium. The formal living room has an interesting fireplace surrounded by mirrors. Definitely reminiscent of “American Hustle,” but kind of fun, too. With almost 2,350 square feet, there’s plenty of room to move around, so if you’ve got pets (which are OK, by the way), you’ll all be able to find a sunny spot.

3459 Courtyard Living

The mirrored fun doesn’t stop there, as the master bedroom also has a wall-to-wall mirror. But that’s OK, considering the French doors, which open to the patio, that let tons of light into this master suite. There is an attached five-piece bath, which has incorporated shell sinks in the vanity, a jacuzzi tub, and a stand-alone shower. You will of course notice the carpet in the bathroom, which is something that makes my brain itch. Moving along …

But what you really came for is the indoor/outdoor pool. How neat is that? So when it gets ridiculously hot and bright this summer, you can just hang out in the shaded area of the pool with your frosty margarita and your closest pals, still getting your soak on without being singed by our unfathomable UV rays.

Truly, this townhome is epic fun for the next occupant. You can lease it today for $2,400 a month, which, considering this unit’s proximity to Brookhaven Country Club, is a price well worth the personality. And considering the huge storage cabinets in the garage, you’ll have plenty of places to store all your golf clubs and gear as you work on your game. Fore!
