Stunning Lakewood Tudor Tops Our Dallas Open Houses |

Every Thursday, we pick three fabulous open houses in Dallas (and the ‘burbs from time to time) you shouldn’t miss. Welcome to our Open Houses of the Week column. This week, our houses range in price from $375K to $1.15 million and they’re all fabulous.  



With mature trees, rolling topography, proximity to White Rock Lake, and tons of charming homes, Lochwood is getting plenty of attention from buyers. Of course, when there’s a lot of interest in a neighborhood, prices tend to go up, so we’re not surprised to see this ranch on Rogue Way priced in the $400,000 range. Truly, we have been wondering when the rest of Dallas was going to catch on to this great little enclave of 1960s architecture. 

But this little home, while it’s unassuming from the curb, packs quite the punch inside. With a designer kitchen, open spaces, and tons of light, you’re sure to fall in love with this hip-pocket listing from Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate’s Scott Kaserman at 11718 Rogue Way.

10664 Lakemere u

East Dallas real estateDave Perry-Miller Realtor Scott Kaserman thought the sale on his East Dallas listing at 6051 Penrose Ave. was a done deal when they inked a contract yesterday. But today brought bad news.

“It went into multiple offers and under contract yesterday, only to come back on this morning because the buyer got cold feet,” he said.

So that means this darling Burghers Ballard cottage, located near Mockingbird and Skillman, is back on the market. Kaserman has scheduled an open house for Sunday from 2-4 p.m. and said he hopes to get multiple offers again. East Dallas real estateBuilt in 1939, this house has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, 1,506 square feet, and loads of personality. Think delightful curb appeal with mature trees and landscaping, arched interior doorways, hardwood floors, a renovated kitchen and bathrooms, and lots of natural light. The house is within walking distance to Greenville Avenue and White Rock Lake, and is listed for $435,000.


little forest hills real estateLittle Forest Hills real estate is a study in whimsy and character, with some of the most eclectic architecture in Dallas among its 1,000 or so houses.

Case-in-point: Today’s Tuesday Two Hundred at 8907 San Leandro Dr., near Garland Road and Lakeland Drive. This Little Forest Hills cottage is fanciful and fun, from the bright exterior colors and rustic post-and-rail front fencing, to the cheerful and cozy interior and tranquil backyard with extensive organic landscaping and outdoor shower.

The backyard of this Little Forest Hills cottage is filled with century plants and antique roses, pictured here.

Located on the East side of White Rock Lake, the neighborhood is well-known for arching shade trees, a strong sense of community, and local artists who make their homes in funky houses. Many are modestly sized, like this one, which measures 874 square feet with two bedrooms and one bathroom.

The cottage is newly listed for $230,000 by Scott Kaserman at Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate, who said there’s been strong interest and a contract might be coming soon. So let’s take a look at this one-of-a-kind listing before it flies off the market.


Marquita Front

Modern architecture is just my thing, but sometimes I’m drawn in by a fabulous traditional home. That’s what happened here with 6417 Marquita, a great traditional home in Lakewood Estates. This home is completely move-in ready with updates galore that keep the house’s character at the forefront.

Marquita Living Room


With three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and almost 2,000 square feet, this European-style cottage has plenty of room and tons of personality. This house would be an excellent fit for an urban-minded family who wants a close-knit neighborhood and walkable streets with a great elementary school for their young kids.

Marqita Dining

Lakewood has always been a heavily sought-after location, and this price reflects that. Marketed by Scott Kaserman for $499,000, this home shows that you can live in a wonderful neighborhood with a suburban feel with urban amenities such as shopping, restaurants, entertainment, and parks. You’re only 15 minutes from downtown, too.

Marquita Kitchen

Everything is light and airy in this home, especially the kitchen, which is a great spot for entertaining with the huge island and Jenn-Air range. I love the island seating, too, and the shaker-style cabinets with dark granite counters just go together like peanut butter and bananas.

Marquita Master Marquita Master bath

The master suite is a great size for a retreat, but I’m kind of bummed that the hardwood floors don’t continue into this room. And the master bath, while accessible, is small and lacks a tub. There’s only one sink, too. Not a deal-breaker, as the tile and vanity are still beautiful, but just a little bit of a let-down.

Marquita Backyard

The backyard has plenty of room for a crowd to mill around in good weather, with a huge brick patio shaded by a canopy of trees. The rest is kind of a blank slate — a great opportunity for a green thumb to install a wonderful place to relax!

If you want to get a closer look, this great home will be open this Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m.
