Fort Worth

It was built long before the Millennials were born, but this Colonial-esque ranch home near downtown Fort Worth has all the updates and offers a prime space for entertaining.

This Tuesday Two Hundred selection is a 1,905-square-foot property at 6304 Whitman Ave., Fort Worth. It features an in-ground pool, a covered, open back patio, and a built-in bar for serving thirsty guests.

“What’s really unique about this house is that it’s updated, and not many of the other properties in this area have that to offer,” said Realtor Nikki Skalsky of Keller Williams Realty Arlington. “It’s a good house for having parties.”

Another three reasons this house will pique your interest: Location, location, location.

“It’s surrounded by everything,” Skalsky said, noting the proximity to Hulen Mall, Texas Christian University, Seventh Street and “tons of entertainment.” (more…)

Midcentury homes are hot, but an updated one for $299,000? Wear some protective gear because they’re basically on fire.

This three-bedroom, two-bath located in Forest Oaks off Ferguson Road in East Dallas is definitely of the flame-retardant variety. (And just so we’re clear, this is a metaphor. Nothing’s really on fire.)

Listed by Ray King of R. King Realty, 2222 Forest Oaks is 1,300 square feet of total update complete with wood-lined carport and decorative railing leading up to the perfect aqua front door.

We hear it a lot, right? “Amazing location. Must see.” And with a fair amount of skepticism, we click. “Oh yeah, we’ll just see about that…”

But this one, this wonderfully updated, sweet little home really is a must see and the location? Well, it’s amazing. It’s walking distance to hiking and biking trails and a little puddle of water called Lake Grapevine.

And then there’s adorable downtown Grapevine with its vintage train, wonderful restaurants, and charming boutiques. Oh, and you’re a short drive from Southlake, too, and hello, they have a Tyler’s.

Fox & JacobsWe’ve written about Forest Highlands before — the small clutch of Fox & Jacobs homes bordered by Forest Lane, Marsh Lane, and Webb Chapel Road, where some of the more affordable (for the square footage) homes in North Dallas exist.

The neighborhood full of Midcentury Ranches has been home to Dallas families since the late 1950s. Built by brothers Ike and Joe Jacobs and David G. Fox of Fox & Jacobs, the L-shaped Accent and Flair homes of the 1960s are present in several neighborhoods in North Dallas, especially along Marsh Lane.

These homes came in several variations of the same floorplan — some are around 1,500 square feet, some are closer to 1,900. Some had the option of a formal dining room or a fourth bedroom (which means your formal living room has a walk-in closet).  (more…)

A lot of Dallasites, especially the areas hardest hit by the freak storm last Sunday, have been a bit down in the mouth. The loss of so many majestic trees and the damage to so many homes and neighborhoods is a lot to bear. Need some cheering up? This adorable cottage in East Dallas should do the trick.

Located inside one of East Dallas’ most popular neighborhoods, Old Lake Highlands, this cutie packs quite the punch despite its modest size.
