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.

I see so many houses day in and day out, week after week, that I’m pretty jaded. It takes some real creativity to get me excited about a home. So when I say that this Kessler Parkway home designed by Lake | Flato is exciting, I’m not exaggerating. 

First, we have to tip our hat to Lake | Flato for not tearing down the original 1948-built structure. Instead, the firm used the terraced backyard to create a unique feature in this week’s Inwood National Bank Home of the Week. The catwalk leads from the second-story addition to the backyard casita, which has gorgeous tree-top views and a relaxing outdoor shower.

Kessler Square is one of our favorite areas of North Oak Cliff, and if you drive down the shaded avenues, draped with hanging boughs from the beautiful, old trees in this arboreal enclave, you’ll see why.

Our Inwood National Bank Home of the Week is a listing from Compass Dallas Summit Group Realtor Mohammed Jaber that is the perfect example of what Kessler Square has to offer. This adorable Kessler Square Tudor, complete with leaded glass and beautiful brick, is an absolute classic.

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.
