“The more house, the better” is a common motto some homebuyers have adopted and the popular East Dallas area of Lake Highlands has options in several neighborhoods. 

In this week’s Splurge vs. Steal, we’ve found two expansive Lake Highlands homes, one with over 3,100 square feet and the other with over 4,900, built one year apart and under two miles apart. They’ve both got multiple living areas, larger kitchens, swimming pools, and outdoor living options. They also both zoned for Richardson ISD. Which one is your favorite? 



If the thought of building a home makes you break into a cold sweat, we have the solution. Our Inwood National Bank House of the Week is a stunning Bluffview luxury contemporary at 4421 Bluffview Boulevard by Phillip-Jennings Custom Homes. If you don’t want to wait for a custom build, this one ticks every box — and then some. (more…)

Oak Cliff Annex Craftsman

There’s something about a Craftsman house that’s just so endearing. Simple, elegant lines; big, framed out windows ; decorative trim; and a welcoming front porch are just some of the elements that woo buyers.

Our Thursday Three Hundred is a classic Craftsman at 730 N. Montclair Ave. Built in 1923, it is lovingly maintained and recently updated in a few key area, like the kitchen and bathrooms, to make it more appealing to modern buyers.

This home has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,560 square feet on one story in the Oak Cliff Annex neighborhood, near West Davis and North Tyler streets. It’s a real gem that just hit the market Oct. 20. Let’s take a look before it goes under contract.


Sorrento 405 1

The Sorrento is a really beautiful building that offers tons of great amenities to residents in a stunning, contemporary setting. If you want to capitalize on space, security, views and amenities, then you should definitely consider this building.

Sorrento 405 Living

Marketed by Keith Yonick for $330,000 is Unit 405 inside the Sorrento, a fabulous mid-rise development just north of Northwest Highway and west of Hillcrest. It’s a great location, close to the Park Cities and tons of shopping, and a stone’s throw from the Dallas North Tollway, too.

Sorrento 405 Kitchen


This beautiful unit has some gorgeous finishes and a great two-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath layout. This condo has gorgeous wood floors, a beautiful new kitchen with a glass subway tile backsplash, and tons of room for entertaining. It’s 1,288 square feet and is the epitome of style.

Sorrento 405 Master

I also love that the master bedroom has a fireplace — a great idea to make this retreat cozy and romantic. The master bath is no slouch, either, with a full five-piece layout and a huge vanity. The glass brick is a bit of a turn-off, but I can look past it thanks to the garden tub.

Sorrento 405 Master Bath

Of course, there are amenities, such as an infinity pool (perfect for swimming laps), spa, cappuccino bar, fire pit area, fitness center, concierge, and gated access at street-level and garage. I think it’s a great unit for someone who wants to downsize and wants a lock-and-leave lifestyle. What do you think?
