Summer is for grilling, swimming, entertaining, and spending carefree days with the ones you love, and this house on Lake Grapevine couldn’t be more perfect for that. Every day will feel like a vacation if you’re lucky enough to call this stunning spot home. Mediterranean in style, the interiors are brimming with colorful tiles, charming wood-beamed ceilings, and huge rooms filled with light. However, as soon as you have your morning cup of coffee on one of the lavish balconies, you may not want to come inside any time soon.

We hear it a lot, right? “Amazing location. Must see.” And with a fair amount of skepticism, we click. “Oh yeah, we’ll just see about that…”

But this one, this wonderfully updated, sweet little home really is a must see and the location? Well, it’s amazing. It’s walking distance to hiking and biking trails and a little puddle of water called Lake Grapevine.

And then there’s adorable downtown Grapevine with its vintage train, wonderful restaurants, and charming boutiques. Oh, and you’re a short drive from Southlake, too, and hello, they have a Tyler’s.

Who says you can’t find highrise condo living outside the loop? Flower Mound is home to the new 16-story Lakeside Tower overlooking Lake Grapevine, where you’ll find this two-bedroom, 1,136-square-foot condominium listed for $759,900 by Rick Wegman of Ulterre Fort Worth. It’s one of only four condos left in the 48-home tower.  (more…)

Two weeks ago we took you to the extreme west of Tarrant County, to the rich ranch lands of Aledo. So what lies in the easternmost corner of Tarrant County? Parts of Flower Mound. Residents of Dallas and Fort Worth may have a fuzzy impression of Flower Mound, perhaps recalling the area as horse country with huge gated mansions. Forbes ranks the community as the third wealthiest community in North Texas, with higher per capita household incomes than Highland Park. No wonder, then, that the luxurious new vertical homes at Lakeside Tower on Lake Grapevine are selling quickly even before one spade of dirt has been turned. (more…)

The sun is out, finally, and maybe we are all thinking about getting on the water next weekend? After all, Memorial Day is just around the corner. But the thought of all that traffic…

Get a home on Lake Grapevine, a second home that could someday be a first. Maybe four couples buy in, create a private fractional? That way you will be (1) 30 minutes away from a weekend full of water fun and (2) 10 minutes away from DFW. In fact, you could catch all early morning flight from now on and probably save enough on airfare to cover the HOA’s here and more — they are ONLY $350 a year for the association and another $350 a year for the boat dock.

Wait, did I say boat dock? On Lake Grapevine?

Can you picture living in a 15-story luxury high rise — concierge, doorman, stunning finish-outs, everything at your finger-tips — and then looking off your balcony to see water every day? I’m talking sailboats, paddle boarders, jet skiers, fishing and, come seven or eight, a scintillating North Texas sunset to enjoy with a glass of your favorite after work (or play) beverage.

Go ahead, pinch yourself. This will be the Miami life right here in North Texas very, very soon.

A unique new high-rise development on the North Shore of Lake Grapevine called Lakeside Tower is coming our way. The project is being developed by Realty Capital Management, sold and marketed by Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty.  The Lakeside will offer beautiful water views, first-class amenities and a luxury lifestyle based on leisure lake-side living, the likes of which we have never seen in these land-locked parts. The Lakeside Tower is opening in spring 2017. But we just couldn’t wait to get the party going…

Sometimes you really do have to head to the suburbs to find a good deal. With all of the homes in Dallas and Fort Worth getting snapped up so fast, perhaps it’s a good idea to look north to Grapevine, where you can get a great family home for not a lot of money. This home, though, is just a great house, period. You don’t need a couple of kids to enjoy this three-bedroom, two-bath, 1,383-square-foot home that has the best little saltwater pool and spa.
