Highland Park modern

Rogers Healy and Associates always has the best hip pocket properties for us, and this 6,356-square-foot contemporary home at 3504 Lexington Avenue in Highland Park not listed in MLS is no exception. A dining room wall of floor-to-ceiling sliding doors gives you a peek inside the beautiful contemporary architecture of this home, listed by Rogers Healy for $4,800,000.

“3504 Lexington is the modern unicorn,” Healy says. “Pristine attention to detail coupled with a comfortable layout ideal for entertaining, all on a massive Highland Park lot. I love the high ceilings, the open layout, the outdoor entertaining options, and the downstairs master. We’re looking forward to finding the modern fan, ready to entertain.”

Light hardwood and limestone floors contrast the cherry millwork found throughout this four-bedroom, six-bath, two-story estate. As you walk in, the well-appointed dining room to your left has additional outdoor living or dining space courtesy of three sets of glass doors that open onto a slim, covered porch. To the right, there’s a fireplace in the study that’s enclosed with double privacy glass doors with floor-to-ceiling windows and a patio door that allow soft, shaded natural light to enter. Gorgeous!

From the Kim Dawson Agency to up-and-coming star Realtors at Rogers Healy and Associates Realty, Maggie Parks and Kodi Nelson are the dynamic duo comprising Model Realtors — a sort of boutique shop within the extensive and diverse roster of Realtors at the Healy agency.

“After 20 years modeling at Dawson (they are still on the books) I was looking for a new challenge,” explains Kodi Nelson.

She and longtime friend and fellow model, Maggie Parks, were attending real estate classes at Champions and were impressed by guest speaker Rogers Healy.

“Rogers exuded such confidence and energy we knew we wanted to join his team,” she recalls.

“He isn’t the kind of agent who will pass out cards.  He exploits social media in innovative ways to grow business and that fit in with our model,”  she adds. (more…)

Sleek Sophistication Looks Clean and Contemporary in Kimball Square | CandysDirt.com

Fifteen minutes from downtown Dallas and 10 minutes from Bishop Arts, you’ll find the neighborhood of Kimball Square and a sleek, contemporary house we love. Located at 3508 Shady Hollow Ln., this house sits on a quarter-acre treed lot and is our Thursday Three Hundred.

The exterior is eye-catching, with architectural elements you won’t see anywhere else in Dallas. The interior is the work of interior designer, V Mode de Vie, who hand selected all interior finishes, materials, and details, while keeping with the natural architecture this home already had. The combination makes for a stunning and rare find, all for well under $400K.

This house has four bedrooms, two of which are masters, two full bathrooms, one half bath, an office, two dining areas, and 2,162 square feet on two stories.

One of my goals for Tarrant County Tuesday is to introduce new areas of Fort Worth to our readers.  While it’s fun to see large and expensive homes, not everyone can or wants to afford a home that sometimes comes with that type of dwelling.

It brings me great joy to showcase neighborhoods of Cowtown that have quality homes at affordable prices and values.
