Funny coincidence that this week’s Inwood National Bank Home of the Week is steps away from the long-time home office of the Dallas-based banking institution that was established in 1964. It’s also walking distance to the dining, entertainment, and shopping in Inwood Village. But we really chose to feature the Bentley Place villa on Inwood Road at W. University Blvd. because of this: the rooftop patio for al fresco dining and entertaining that’s so inviting looking from inside, you’ll be pulled by its allure.

Spring Branch Drive in White Rock Valley is one of those streets that buyers often ask their agents about, so when one of those homes goes on the market, it’s an opportunity, says White Rock Lake area expert agent Jenny Capritta, a RE/MAX DFW Associates Realtor. Her listing, our Inwood National Bank Home of the Week, is a perfect example of what White Rock Valley has to offer and is an opportunity to purchase a home with great bones that you can make your own.

First off, the location is outstanding. This 1962-built home is nestled in a coveted neighborhood with mature trees, great Richardson ISD schools, and access to the White Rock Creek Trail and White Rock Lake. White Rock Valley is also home to White Rock Stables, a 14-acre full care horse stable near Flag Pole Hill.

On the outskirts of the State-Thomas neighborhood in Dallas’ Uptown area is Griggs Park — an outstanding urban green space with pretty much the best views of the Dallas skyline from the north. And just north of Griggs Park is the 588 Lofts building. For those who want the Uptown lifestyle but want some distance from the deep bass of the popular entertainment district’s nightlife, you really can’t do much better than this building. 

But not all units at the 588 Lofts building are alike, and not all of them are budget-friendly. Luckily, Dallas City Center Realtor Michael McQuay has a listing that is both move-in ready and affordable. Making it this week’s Inwood National Bank Home of the Week was practically a no-brainer.

When Midcentury Modern homes hit the market, they often get snapped up so quickly that our heads spin. So if you’re desperate to get a Midcentury Modern home with plenty of room for renovations and updates, our Inwood National Bank Home of the Week is your opportunity to get it while it’s hot — and affordable!

This listing from Jenny Capritta is in the nexus of East Dallas’ treasured enclave of Midcentury Modern architecture. The Lake Gardens area of East Dallas’ White Rock Lake neighborhoods has tall trees, winding streets with hilly topography, and an outstanding collection of original and renovated Midcentury Modern homes.

Still obsessed as ever with Chip and Jojo? Need your fix of farmhouse chic? Ready to live inside an award-winning Dallas ISD attendance zone? This adorable cottage from RE/MAX DFW Associates Realtor Jenny Capritta located inside the Mockingbird Elementary attendance zone, which is within the Woodrow Wilson feeder pattern, is absolutely perfect. 

Our Inwood National Bank Home of the Week is just what buyers are looking for, says Capritta.

“Buyers today are not looking for actual fixer-uppers,” she said. “They are looking for a modernized remodel that is move-in ready.”

But if you’re thinking this cutie is a standard flip, think again. 

“This quality renovation was not done by flippers, but homeowners who spared no expense or overlooked the slightest detail,” Capritta said.

This North Oak Cliff California contemporary won’t make you choose between spaces made to entertain and a place to retreat!

When someone describes a home as “a retreat,” my mind automatically imagines a spa day. However, most homes are not at all like a trip to the spa. But this Oak Cliff California-style contemporary actually does feel like a trip to the spa, which is why it’s earned the title of Inwood National Bank Home of the Week. 

As an added bonus, this home is perfect for any party you can dream up, says listing agent George W. Hawkins II of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty. 

“With the spacious open floor plan, it’s an entertainers dream,” Hawkins said. ” Plus, it has a master retreat that is separate from your guest wing.”

If that doesn’t say “relaxing retreat,” you might need to check your thesaurus.

When you think about what makes a house a home, what are some details that come to mind? Homes are so much more than four walls and a roof, especially when it comes to the everyday life of a family. Thoughtful touches, grand spaces, and awe-inspiring rooms are the backdrop to our memories, and smart, creative design can make or break them. So when we ran across this inspiring Preston Hollow transitional, we couldn’t contain ourselves.

Not only is this beautiful Preston Hollow transitional — our Inwood National Bank Home of the Week — a brand new build, but its stunning spaces feature the deft hand of award-winning designer Traci Connell, notes Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate’s Lisa Marcus Schlachter. Reason enough to fall in love at first sight, and we know you (and your future guests) will!

We love Traci Connell because she took an unusual path to a successful career in interior design and has made a name for herself in a very competitive industry.

Plus, she has an eye for pattern and color that creates unusual, eye-catching spaces that offer so many “wow” moments!

The foyer in this Preston Hollow transitional has designer touches from the ceiling to the floor thanks to Traci Connell.
