Courtney Jubinsky of Dave Perry-Miller Preston Center has listed 3119 Oliver Avenue for $695,000.

Landing the perfect Knox-Henderson home at an affordable price is like finding a needle in a haystack, right? Wrong! We found one of the last remaining single-family homes in the area, and received a call from Dave Perry-Miller himself to chat about this once-in-a-lifetime listing.

“I think what makes the property exceptional or unique are the following: It is one of the only single-family houses left in all of Knox-Henderson in the entire city,” says Perry-Miller. “Secondly, it has a detached garage, a wonderful screened-in porch, and a terraced courtyard in the back, so it’s got a certain amount of privacy. And my gosh, I lived there for the last year and a half to two years after I sold my big house in Bluffview and I loved it!”

m streetsIt’s always nice when newer construction in an established neighborhood blends right in with the historic homes, like this M Streets Craftsman-style home we found for this week’s Saturday Six Hundred.

Built in 2009, this home at 5322 Miller Ave. has all the curb appeal and character of some of the much older Craftsman homes in the M Streets and Vickery Place areas, but the modern practical details like smart home features.

And it’s been beautifully done both inside and out, with an open-concept floor plan for the common areas that is bright and cheerful. Casement windows bring in tons of natural light, and hand-scraped hardwood floors are throughout the home.

Every so often, I’ll get tipped about a listing in Dallas that seems too good to be true — a scam, some might say. Sometimes you get photos of the inside, and immediately understand why the Realtor or owner chose a bargain price.

Other times, you know immediately it’s a scam. And that’s what happened Friday when someone mentioned a three-bedroom, two-bath listing near Knox-Henderson that had been priced at $34,000.

Now, we’ve done this before, and by now most CandysDirt.com readers know we have zero reticence about engaging with folks that are probably up to no good. A few years ago we did just that when a property owner found her rental listing duplicated, with the new listing offering the house in Highland Park for a ridiculously low $1,000 a month.

Now, I’d love to send you to the actual listing, but after being alerted by the actual property owner (more on that in a minute), Zillow pulled the fraudulent listing down. However, knowing this would probably be the case, I grabbed screenshots. (more…)

There are a lot of things to love about New York, like the art, the architecture, and the lively streetscapes. While the city that never sleeps is a great place to visit, a lot of us couldn’t imagine living there full time. But what if you could have Big Apple style in one of the hottest neighborhoods in Big D? With this delicious East Dallas modern, our High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans, you absolutely can.

With its clean-lined facade and beautiful glass house aesthetic, this new build from DMOD Homes in the Knox-Henderson neighborhood is a breath of fresh air. Listed by David Griffin & Company Realtor Lori Ericsson, this four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath, two-story home has tons of New York loft style on a delightfully residential street.

Neighborhoods all along the North Central Expressway corridor are seeing resurgence and reinvestment in a very big way. Long neglected areas, once full of ramshackle and run down houses, are becoming a land of opportunity in the realm of urban infill for developers and architects. It is fascinating to watch the changing landscape, and though it’s sad to lose the cultural value of older homes, it’s heartening to see builders invest in interesting, engaging design. It allows a generation to put a stamp on the area, and sometimes to great results. 

Today’s High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans is an example of what’s great about modern design. With clean lines and a contemporary facade, 2215 Madera adds something different to the neighborhood landscape of Knox-Henderson. It’s a fabulous listing from Virginia Cook Realtor Ed Murchison
