Updated Caruth Terrace

Caruth Terrace has long been a favorite neighborhood for first- and second-time homebuyers who love being near the dining and shopping of Lakewood. Now, you’ll just need to decide if you’re more of a Big Shucks or a Burger House family when you move into this lovely remodeled ranch-style home at 6308 Woodcrest Lane, listed for $600,000 by Michael Brink of Keller Williams Urban Dallas. (But really, you can’t go wrong either way.) (more…)

Denton County’s popular Kensington Estates neighborhood is exactly where people go to raise their kids. So we found a stately brick beauty at 1801 Sussex Way that allows you to do just that. Plus, it’s move-in ready too! Listing agent Kathryn Roan with Keller Williams Urban Dallas spills the tea saying, “I feel the biggest draw to Sussex Way is the floor plan. It is perfect for a big, possibly multi-generational, family. Upstairs, in addition to two bedrooms with a shared Jack-and-Jill bath, you’ll find a living room and bedroom with en-suite full bath, all self-contained behind a door. It makes a wonderful mother-in-law or guest suite.”

And Roan is right. The home leaves nothing to be desired.

Going through it? Eager for a transformation? Then out with the old and in with the new! This North Oak Cliff stunner is sure to get you excited for your next chapter.

The spectacular, three-bedroom, two-full-bathroom contemporary is bursting with architectural interest, including a fabulous butterfly roof. Plus, it’s positioned in the desirable Wynnewood North enclave in North Oak Cliff. Here, you’ll live large in a stunning residence with soaring ceilings and tons of natural light.

Perfect For Downsizers

It’s perfect for anyone looking for a change, or metamorphosis, so to speak. Just ask listing agent Ric Shanahan with Keller Williams Urban Dallas. He says it’s perfect for “Downsizers who want a home in an established neighborhood. It’s close to the Dart Red Line at Tyler-Vernon and Tyler Station, and only one-and-a-half miles to Bishop Arts and five miles to Downtown.”

The choice to move to Oak Lawn is one often based on location. People who enjoy this neighborhood with Turtle Creek, hoards of excellent dining and shopping options, and plenty of nightlife, aren’t planning to spend oodles of time inside their digs. Life in Oak Lawn is to be lived in the neighborhood itself, right? 

That’s why we find this adorable Bud Oglesby-designed, Midcentury Modern condo listed by Keller Williams Urban agent Don Neilson so appealing. As our High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans, we see the inherent value in such a superb location — Mansion Park. Plus, its modest floor plan is so incredibly functional that you won’t miss all the excess space you left behind.

“This is the ultimate ‘tiny home’ on steroids,” Neilson said of his listing at 2727 Hood Street, Unit No. 110. “Today’s sophisticated urban buyers want convenience, style, and simplicity. They want to live in a nice neighborhood and they want a home that is affordable, so they spend their free time on living a more fulfilling lifestyle.”

We couldn’t agree more!

LakewoodDid you know one of the biggest Internet search terms in the area is “rental homes in Dallas?” True story. And when you drill down to some of the more desired areas — like Lakewood and Lakewood-adjacent neighborhoods — finding a great rental is, well, a real hunt.

So this week’s rental of the week might just satisfy the Lakewood-powered need for some, even if you have a school-aged child to think about. It’s a charming two-bedroom, one bath downstairs unit in Lakewood, located at 2619 Abrams Road.

HexterHexter Elementary is one of those schools that is consistently asked about when people consider moving to East Dallas. With its robust parental involvement, and the fact that it is a Blue Ribbon school, there’s a lot of reasons to seek it out.

And given that the homes in the area can be some of the more affordable choices in Dallas, falling in that $200,000 range at the low point, it’s easy to see why young families flock there. (more…)

Richardson Heights

Certain neighborhoods tend to pop up frequently for CandysDirt’s Thursday Three Hundred round-up: northeast Dallas, Lake Highlands, and Richardson. But since I took the reins of this weekly feature a few months ago, I’d forgotten just how special the mid-century homes were in the popular Richardson Heights neighborhood near Arapaho and Floyd Road until a reader alerted us to his home new on the market. The 1961-built home at 629 Stardust Lane is a darling three bedroom, two bath, and one half-bath gem with 2,047 square feet. It’s listed for $375,000 by Ric Shanahan of Keller Williams Urban Dallas.

Our Steal: Miranda Gonzales with Keller Williams Urban Dallas has listed 13436 Forestway Drive for $455,000.

Once a rural community on Dallas’ edge, this area has turned into a hot-and-happening hood, with plenty of restaurants and retail — and acclaimed Richardson ISD schools, to boot. Yes, this week we are taking you to Northwood Hills/Valley View, where suburban tree-lined streets and large lots make the houses here feel like home. The two we’ve locked eyes with are made for summer. Plus, they’re priced to sell, too. Each comes with generous interiors and oasis-style pools but with price points that are miles apart.

Which would you choose the Midcentury Modern splurge or the Renovated Contemporary steal? Take your pick and let us know in the comments.
