State ThomasPerched right at the edge of Uptown and State Thomas, this two-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath brownstone townhome on North Hall Street is close to plenty of fun, but also gated and safe. 

It’s also a healthy 1,909 square feet of living space, making it a pretty spacious option for anyone looking for the zero maintenance of a townhome but the roominess of a detached home.

And, according to Realtor Kelly Gurnee with Clay Stapp + Co., it’s turnkey — you can back that moving truck up, unload and arrange the furniture, and be ready to go, with no honey-dos to wade through before it’s yours.

One of the biggest selling features is the massive rooftop deck with downtown views and plenty of room for conversational seating, dining, and even that grill.  (more…)

Holz & SteinWhile this new construction by Holz & Stein Custom Homes has a lot to recommend it, the particular buyer will also appreciate its location — just down the road from Central Market, good dining and imbibing at places like Fernando’s, Bugatti Ristoranti, Mi Camino, and Bluffview Growler, and an easy drive to Love Field, too.

Realtor Kelly Gurnee with Clay Stapp + Co. emailed us Thursday night to tell us about 4339 Bonham St., just off Midway and north of Walnut Hill. “It’s a stunner of a home,” he said of the listing.

Mansion ParkTwo blocks from Turtle Creek, Katy Trail, and the Uptown shopping and dining, when we saw that this sleek, sexy, and elegant Mansion Park townhome in our Instagram feed this week, we knew we had to share.

And lo and behold, we’ve shared before. Last year, Candy fell hard for this three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath, three-story home, with good reason. Secluded behind a treeline, wall, and a gate, 3625 Brown Street is both private and right in the middle of everything.

Seattle transplant Kelly Gurnee recently joined Clay Stapp + Co. He’d spent the past three and a half years at Gurnee & Associates, a firm in his hometown started by his brother.

This is actually Gurnee’s second stint in Dallas. In 2009 he helped build a dental group that a friend started. For the six years, he oversaw 10 offices and was responsible for many of their business operations. When his friend sold the group in 2015, he returned to Seattle where they hoped to repeat the same business model in a new location. Gurnee ultimately elected to dive in real estate and hang up dental for the time being.

“I did really well but I wanted to get back to Texas all along,” he said. “If I’d had my way I probably wouldn’t have moved back. I met a lot of good people here.”
