We’ve loved this modern metal masterpiece, at 2619 Leta Mae Lane, since we first saw it back in November of 2015. We love it even more now that the price has been dropped to only $750,000 from the original $995 asking. This is the ultimate George Jetson house and although you’d expect to find it in Urban Reserve, it’s actually in, wait for it, Farmers Branch! (more…)

The contemporary marvel at 2619 Leta Mae Ln. in Farmers Branch is one of five open houses we’re featuring this week.

Now that the holidays are done and spring is around the corner, house hunting is likely to pick up. We’ve picked five open houses this weekend for you, ranging in price from $265K to $995K. Neighborhoods include Bluffview, the M Streets, Hillridge, University Meadows, and a surprise in Farmers Branch. Lots of diversity in the styles and prices—we hope you like it!

Leta Mae 1Recently I was asked my thoughts on a neighborhood changing its name. While that story is in production, I will say this: if ever there was a community that should change its name, that would be Farmers Branch.

Why? Because there are some gorgeous homes in Farmers Branch, very upscale, sleek and sophisticated, and the location is stellar: just north of the 635 Loop, convenient to 35E and DFW, especially now that 635 is nearing it’s 2000 year (or so it seemed) completion. I know I am risking the wrath of an entire community, a really great community, but I just have to apologize in advance and SAY IT. And it’s not just the recent negative publicity from that inane immigration ordinance attempt, it’s the tone and inference of the word “Farmer” that has been etched into us all since, well, The Farmer in the Dell:

I say try Ranchers Hollow, or Ranchers Branch. Or how about Farnsworth Branch, borrowing the name of a lovely rural road (probably not so rural anymore) in my native suburban Illinois?

Because look at this sizzling sustainable showplace at 2619 Leta Mae Lane that is for sale in FB and all she has to offer! (more…)
