Sigh. Y’all know we are house crazy here at CandysDirt.com. But, when this Highland Park masterpiece by Mark Molthan hit our inbox, well, we just sort of melted into one big puddle of longing. It has everything we love, all rolled into 6,661 square feet of fabulous in a perfect location at 3836 Caruth Boulevard. (more…)

Our Inwood Home of the Week, a Highland Park traditional, offers a fresh take on a classic look. Originally built in 1984, Cy Barcus Jr. put his magic touch on the home in 2011. Barcus owns CEB Construction and grew up in the business. His father built many of the most beautiful homes in Dallas, and he continues the family tradition. Known for his attention to detail, the renovations and updates on the 5,192-square-foot, two-story mansion at 3505 Harvard Avenue in Highland Park, are meticulous. (more…)

The Beltre’s just picked up this Preston Hollow pad near Northwest Highway and Inwood this April for $2,850,000 and I congratulate them on a steal! The home was originally listed at $3,399,000. They have over 8000 square feet on a three-quarters acre lot, the home built in 2008. Even so, that’s half the size of the home the Beltres are still trying to unload in Bradbury CA, near Pasedena. The Dallas pad has five bedrooms, five baths, two half baths, formals, great kitchen, pool and spa and that Preston Hollow wooded drive up appeal with mature trees & electonic gates.  There are also exercise, game, craft, and bonus rooms, a chilled wine cellar & several wet bars (which will be put to good use after tonight’s game). The outdoor living area, yes, there is one of those, has electronic phantom screens to close off into yet another bug-free living area. Elevator ready, tons of storage with a floored attic.
