Modern, Industrial Coppell House Looks Like it Jumped Off the Pages of a Magazine | CandysDirt.com

Industrial contemporary meets organic in the architectural design of a truly original Coppell house we’re loving. It’s a custom three-story creation on almost an acre, like nothing else in North Texas, where attention to detail and creative style choices create something one-of-a-kind. 

From the moment you step onto the drawbridge walkway, crossing over the fishpond, you know you have arrived at 413 E. Bethel School Rd. Just on the other side of the 750-pound powder coated metal “speakeasy” door, the magic begins. 

“The homeowners built this as their dream house and they’ve been the only owners,” said Cathy O’Toole, one of the listing agents with the O’Toole Levan Group of Ebby Halliday Realtors. “The most unique thing is it’s three stories and the whole bottom floor, not including the house structure, is a big storm shelter — you don’t usually get a basement in Coppell!”

This home has five bedrooms, five full bathrooms, one half bath, three living areas, two dining areas, an office, and 6,148 square feet. It sits on 0.958 acres, so outdoor living is definitely part of the appeal. Let’s take a look!

Revitalized and booming, Dallas’ Uptown area is a long-time hot spot, reborn. It is the city’s hottest office and residential area, directly north of downtown with the finest array of dining in the city, high-end boutiques, vibrant nightlife, and salons. This creates an electric atmosphere, day and night, with lovely historic residential neighborhoods alongside newer developments.

Luxe high rises, sleek condominiums, and gated communities are just a few reasons Uptown is urban living at its best. Residents have many naturally beautiful areas to enjoy that are unique to this area, like Katy Trail, Reverchon Park, and Turtle Creek.

At the end of 2018’s first quarter, the undisputed real estate leader in Uptown is Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate in both total sales volume and total units for the area. The brand finished 2017 with almost twice the market share of its nearest competitor in MLS Area 17, which includes, Uptown, Downtown and Oak Lawn. Their listings are incredible!

“As an Uptown resident and Uptown property specialist, it’s been exciting for me to watch the area evolve and grow vertically — I’m proud to be a part of the company that continues to lead the way,” said Emily Ray-Porter, a Realtor with Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate. “I think it’s DPM’s unique focus and dedication to neighborhood-specific real estate that makes us so successful.”

I’ve found three that exemplify the kind of quality and luxury the brokerage is trusted to represent.

Lakefront Living Looks Lovely in These Three Homes, Repped by Ebby Halliday | CandysDirt.com

About 60 miles southeast of Dallas, Cedar Creek Lake beckons residents for stress-free living in one of multiple communities. Many DFW residents buy weekend houses there because it’s about an hour from the city and makes for a quick getaway. 

“This is a huge lake that offers a relaxed lifestyle, but it’s close enough to have everything in the city, too,” said by Shelly Brown-Qualls with Ebby Halliday — Preston Center. “I lived down there for many years and now I live in North Dallas and have a lake home there, which I can get to in about an hour and ten minutes.” 

Almost every price point is represented around the lake, from budget-friendly to super luxe, and Ebby Halliday represents some of the best. I’ve found three that range in price from $199,999 to $1.9 million. Let’s take a tour.

Desirability Is Where It's at for the Residences at the Stoneleigh | CandysDirt.com

It’s the buzz around the Dallas real estate community, and units are 63 percent sold. This 22-story high-rise is one of the most coveted properties in the city, and I’ll tell you why…

The Residences at the Stoneleigh combine a rare real estate opportunity with superior service, luxury amenities, and an incredible location to nail the “desirability” angle. They’ve got it all. 

But don’t take my word for it — listen to John and Jessica East, who moved into the Residences at the Stoneleigh in January 2015, building out a shell. They say the hotel/spa experience living there was a top attraction.

“What I love about the Residences at the Stoneleigh is all the wonderful amenities we have here,” said Jessica. “You’ve got a beautiful pool on the third floor that overlooks the city — it’s very relaxing — you’ve got a gym with everything you need and nothing you don’t, as well as a health club with dry and wet sauna. You’ve also got wonderful staff that treat you like you’re the only resident that lives here.” 

Important to note: This is one of very few buildings in Dallas where homeowners can buy a shell unit and customize it to be whatever they want, creating their “space in the sky” with spectacular views from rooms and balconies. Floorplans range from 2,400 to 4,200 square feet, available also as finished units, and some balconies are as large as 240 square feet.

When you think of high-end housing, does Garland come to mind? It should — this eastern DFW city offers some coveted gated communities with golf course views, larger lots, high-end finish-out, and custom details. 

Garland is large, 57.1 square miles, and bordered by Dallas, Mesquite, Sunnyvale, Lake Ray Hubbard, Rowlett, Sachse, Murphy, and Richardson. It has a rich history that has helped shape it into a family-oriented, thriving city in North Texas with almost 237,000 people. It offers easy access to downtown Dallas via Interstate 30, two DART Blue line stations, and multiple buses. 

Compared to many parts of DFW, you can buy a lot of house for your money in Garland. That’s why it pays to have a local expert by your side if you’re buying in the city, like the Realtors at Ebby Halliday. They know exactly what you can get in each neighborhood, what the competition is like, and how to best negotiate a sale. 

I’ve found three stellar houses for sale in Garland that illustrate the higher-end properties there, all repped by Ebby. Let’s take a look!
