You don’t typically think of bargain-priced properties when it comes to Westlake. Known as one of the most affluent suburbs in the Metroplex and home to celebrities and athletes alike, Westlake doesn’t have any homes priced under $1 million. At least not on the market right now. However, these three outstanding estates are great value for the purchase price, whether they’re priced below market value or they’ve been reduced several hundred thousand dollars. They’re not in everybody’s price range, but they’re three great homes to dream about for this Suburb Sunday.

Colleyville homes

This home at 6905 Westmont Drive in Colleyville has unique treeline views from the pool deck.

Typically for Suburb Sunday, we highlight homes within three different price ranges, or three distinctly different parts of the city to show a slice of life there. This week’s Suburb Sunday is a little bit different because we chose three $1.7 million-plus homes for their unique architectural or design elements that make them one-of-a-kind. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Colleyville:

Cliff May East Dallas Home Leads the Way Among Our Dallas Open Houses | CandysDirt.com

We do the hard work every week to find the most wonderful open houses every week. Every Thursday, we pick three fabulous open houses in Dallas (and the ‘burbs from time to time) you shouldn’t miss.

One of the houses in our CandysDirt.com Open Houses of the Week this week is a Cliff May-designed beauty. 

“[That house] was designed by famed architect Cliff May in 1956 and was featured in the Casa View Cliff May Home Tour in 2016,” said listing agent Mindy Oglesby-Niehaus with JP & Associates Plano. “It was a favorite to many tour goers as they said it felt as though they were up in the trees. Cliff May’s architectural design was focused on indoor and outdoor entertaining and boasts classic midcentury design elements.”

This week, our houses range in price from $299,000 to $2,999,999. Which ones will you visit?
