HistoricNot every historic home in Dallas meets the wrecking ball — some are lovingly cared for, carefully updated, and enjoying third, fourth, and even fifth lives as new generations of Dallasites back up the moving truck and begin their lives there.

This week, we’d like to show you three open houses, all homes that are at least 75 years old or more, all updated and move in ready for their next family.

Every Thursday, we bring you our pick of the hottest North Texas properties in our CandysDirt.com Open Houses of the Week. Which one will you choose? (more…)

Dallas Open House Roundup | CandysDirt.com

The Winnetka Heights Prairie at 319 N. Willomet Ave. is one of our five featured open houses this week.

Every Thursday, we bring you the CandysDirt Open Houses of the Week column with five standout properties you’ve got to make time to see that weekend. This is the result of days of research into what’s available now, what’s hot, and which open houses shine.

This week, our houses range in price from $499K to $1.099 million. You’ll find a range of properties, including the lovely Winnetka Heights Prairie pictured above, a central Dallas condo with colorful personality, and a Lakeshore Hills contemporary taken to the studs for a huge renovation. Let’s take a look!

bryan street loftGet ready to be wooed by our Thursday Three Hundred.

The loft-condo at 3030 Bryan St. Ste 207, near N. Haskell Avenue and Live Oak Street, shows spectacularly, with 11-foot ceilings, stained and polished concrete floors, an open floorplan, and access to a 2,200-square-foot rooftop deck with breathtaking downtown views.

It’s a 2-1 with an additional half bath and 1,512 square feet, built in 2005, a study in New Modern craftsmanship. Floor-to-ceiling windows allow sunlight to flood the space, which feels considerably larger than its measured square footage.

It was listed Tuesday by Matthew Edwards with Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate for $399,000. Monthly HOA dues are $412. There is an open house Sunday from 2-4 p.m.
