mediterranean Is living in a Mediterranean castle worth $12,000 a month?

If that’s a resounding yes, it will score the new tenant a total of three bedrooms, four and one-half bathrooms, and an elevator to carry residents to each of the three floors.

Described as a Mediterranean villa (it still looks like a castle), 3520 Blackburn St. is a swanky spot that can be yours, even if just temporarily. The home is actually also for sale, listed at $2 million, but the rental rate might be easier to swallow.

Built in 2006, the home overlooks Blackburn Lake and is walking distance from West Village, Turtle Creek Village, and Dallas Theater Center. (more…)

Although Coppell is thought of as a relatively young city (incorporated in 1955), its roots can be traced back to the early 1880’s as many towns in north Texas began: a bustling railroad stop for commerce and agriculture. The Dallas County (and a little bit of DenCo) city has an estimated population of  41,000, fed steadily by its proximity to jobs at D/FW International Airport and Coppell ISD’s top-notch schools, ranked number 5 in the state of Texas. This week’s Suburb Sunday features three beautiful homes among an already-great selection of decade-rich houses. Which is your favorite?
