Dilbeck Renovated Ranch
Our Saturday Six Hundred is a lovely Charles Dilbeck renovated ranch at 6731 Lakefair Circle, and it perfectly illustrates the name of the neighborhood.

We seldom think about why a neighborhood carries a particular name. Lakewood seems straightforward enough. It’s near White Rock Lake, and it’s heavily wooded. However, what many people don’t realize is that there are lovely little lakes throughout the neighborhood. This is because the only access to these little oases is from the back of each house. This Dilbeck renovated ranch is one of 24 houses on Blue Fair Lake, a private spring-fed lake. (more…)

English Arts and Crafts
Our Inwood Home of the Week is an English Arts and Crafts movement stunner at 5816 Swiss Avenue, and it has a pretty serious fan base. Before all of you jump on me and say this is an Eclectic Tudor, yes, absolutely it is. But let’s learn a bit, shall we?


New England Cottage

You are in for a treat today. I have the most incredible account of this hidden Hillcrest Road New England cottage at 11525 Hillcrest Road because the couple responsible for the renovations kept meticulous notes. Grab a second cuppa, and settle in dear readers. This is one special property.


 Creekside Place Traditional
Our Saturday Seven Hundred is a lovely two-story Creekside Place traditional that backs up to the White Rock Creek Trail. Grab your running shoes, kayak, or bike because you can walk out the back door and bike, hike, or walk to White Rock Lake from 13853 Creekside Place.

classic Colonial Revival
It’s so nice to see historic homes take on a new life. Our Inwood Home of the Week is a classic Colonial Revival at 4501 Lorraine Ave. that has had a total facelift, and it’s gorgeous.

Jacobethan manor
Expectations are always high when you walk into a Swiss Avenue home. However, this Jacobethan manor house at 5901 Swiss Avenue exceeded mine by a mile. Not only is it a historic home with a well-known, charismatic former owner, it’s also been thoroughly, stunningly updated. (more…)

Preston Hollow Classic Contemporary
Appreciation for architecture from the 1970s is slowly unfolding, but I’ll tell you where real bang for your buck lies today. It’s in homes built in the 1980s. Our Inwood Home of the Week at 4730 Royal Lane is a Preston Hollow classic contemporary that was built by Shepherd and Boyd, and it’s the best-kept secret in town.

modern tree house
We could not be more excited to share the news that Diane Cheatham, the developer of Urban Reserve, has put her three-story modern tree house at 1 Vanguard Way, on the market with Dave Perry-Miller’s Charlotte Thompson for $ 3.376 million. This is quite possibly the best opportunity to own a one-of-a-kind, sustainably built modern home in America today.
