the Preserve

One of my favorite things about Allen is how truly well-designed the town is. And one of our favorite developments, The Preserve, has some of the best builders, too! We were so lucky to stumble upon this great listing from Michelle Hopson, a Compass Dallas agent. 

“The Preserve is a small luxury community of only about 100 homes — there is a pond, and hike and bike trails,” Hopson said. “It is a very different feel than being in one of the larger communities.” 

So we’re obviously thrilled to feature this gorgeous Ashton Woods home on an oversized lot, our Inwood National Bank Home of the Week. It’s gorgeous and has tons of storage!

Fall In Love with This Clean-lined Northwest Dallas New Home Repped by Ebby Halliday | CandysDirt.com

Magazine-worthy good looks and a clean-lined transitional aesthetic come together in an incredible house on the western edge of Bluffview in Northwest Dallas. 

Located at 8819 Lakemont Dr., this property was created by Robert Hopson Construction Group for a local client as a custom home. But life circumstances changed and now this remarkable new build, which has the kind of bespoke features you wouldn’t get in a spec home, is on the market, represented by Michelle Hopson with Ebby Halliday Realtors. 

“The floorplan is geared toward amazing entertaining possibilities with an open floorplan and a combined living-kitchen-dining area with a great wet bar area, and all of that flows to the outdoor living area,” Hopson said. “Also, this house has the most storage I’ve ever seen, like a finished-out storage area on the second level, attic storage, and storage built into the room designs.”

There’s plenty of room for a family to spread out and enjoy this house with five bedrooms, six full bathrooms, one half bath, three living areas, a home office, and 5,641 square feet on two stories. Located near West Northwest Highway and Midway Road, the back of the property overlooks the lush Bachman Lake Park. 

Watch the video after the jump to see why we love this house!

Bluffview Estates MediterraneanHave you noticed that character is largely missing in homes today? There are plenty of beautiful luxury properties being built and finished out with a proven style that appeals to a tribal mentality. And, it’s becoming a bit boring. So, when we saw this magnificent Bluffview Estates Mediterranean that just oozed character — oh my, did it turn heads around here! (more…)

 

There’s nothing we appreciate more at CandysDirt.com than folks who understand the importance of history and preservation, and this is a historic home in Highland Park that is a total love story. There are far too many homes that fall under an unnecessary wrecking ball in our area.

We are especially heartened when we find a builder like Josh Zielke who marches to the preservation drum beat, and we couldn’t be more happy with the results in our Inwood National Bank Home of the Week.
