Woodrow

All three of our homes in this week’s roundup of open houses are in the Woodrow Wilson feeder pattern, including 5939 Velasco Ave., listed by Briana Hill with Rogers Healy and Associates.

It’s not uncommon to hear that house hunters in Dallas are looking for homes in the Woodrow Wilson High School feeder pattern — it’s known for its academics, it’s fine arts programs, and its athletics, as well as its strong alumni and parent presence.

Suffice to say, if you’ve never checked out Woodrow Wilson High, you owe it to yourself to investigate, because there are tons of reasons it’s one of the most sought-after public high schools.

Every Thursday, we bring you our pick of the hottest North Texas properties in our CandysDirt.com Open Houses of the Week. These are the places you don’t want to miss that weekend. And this week, our homes all have one Dallas ISD feeder pattern in common — the Woodrow Wilson High School feeder pattern.

So, you think the real estate market is slowing down? Think again. It’s as hot as ever — if you have a property that is priced correctly, presented beautifully, and has every amenity under the sun. Our Inwood Home of the Week is a Vickery Place Craftsman that ticks all of those boxes and then some. That’s why 5424 Vickery Boulevard had an offer before it ever hit MLS.

I have been stalking this home for about a week. The moment I spotted it, I thought it was a restored original. I figured there was a great story about the renovation. The list price of $1.049 million also caught my eye. It’s a steal for a home with so many amenities. Imagine my surprise to find this picture-perfect, 3,391-square-foot Vickery Place Craftsman was only built five years ago by Jeff Baron Homes. The reason this looks like an original is because it was a custom build for discerning clients by an excellent builder.

Do you remember P.D Eastman’s The Best Nest? Mr. Bird sang, “In all the world my nest is best!” That’s how we feel about our Inwood Home of the Week, a dramatic modern industrial home overlooking White Rock Creek. It has an unexpected look for Lakewood, and the most exciting blend of materials we’ve seen in a very long time. We think it’s the very best nest in all of East Dallas. (more…)
