Our Inwood House of the Week is one of those homes you expect to see as a location for a TV series set in the 1950s. Mom is vacuuming in heels and pearls as dad fires up the grill for a neighborhood barbecue, jazz wafting out onto the patio. This North Dallas renovated ranch at 11439 Chicot Drive perfectly captures the character and nostalgia of the era, but step inside and you quickly move from 1951 to 2017.

5528-Springmeadow-1

Our Inwood National Bank House of the Week at 5528 Springmeadow Drive is one of the finest examples of an American ranch remodel I’ve ever seen. It’s also down the street from one of the most beloved American country music stars of all time, Charley Pride. Pride has lived in this beautiful private neighborhood for over twenty years. David Alan Coe also called it home for a while, and of course, Jordan Spieth is just across the way in Preston Hollow.

6924 Azalea Front Hillcrest

Homes hold so much more than rooms full of furniture. They carry with them the memories of all the families who spent days, both good and bad, sheltered inside. That’s what makes it difficult for Jon Leatherberry to sell his lovely home in Hillcrest Forest, just east of Hillcrest and north of Northwest Highway. It’s a wonderful, sprawling ranch that has been remodeled to be well-scaled for family life.
