mid-century capsule

Fix yourself a cocktail at the smoked glass bar and come take a look at this part-time capsule, part-updated home in the heart of Irving listed by Blaine Soileau of Dallas City Center Realtors for this week’s Thursday 300.

Working on last week’s Suburb Sunday featuring Irving, I came across this stunning mid-century style home at 309 San Mateo Court that is fabulously priced at $398,000. This 3,168 square-foot four-bedroom, two and half-bath home has a striking front entrance with amazing angles that hint at its unique inside. I debated between featuring this and another MCM home, and went with the latter, but someone has jumped at the chance for this 1967-built home in Irving’s University Hills because it’s now listed as pending.

For this week’s Suburb Sunday, we found fabulously diverse architecture in these three Irving homes in the popular neighborhoods of Hackberry Creek in north Irving near 114, Fox Glen in central Irving near O’Connor Road, and University Hills in east Irving near the University of Dallas. Which do you prefer?

For this week’s Suburb Sunday, we land in Las Colinas — a suburb that’s not actually a city at all, but a master-planned community located in the entirety of Irving. Built in the 70s, it was one of the first planned communities in the country, and for a time, one of the largest in the south. Las Colinas is just perfectly located in the hub of the Metroplex, just 10 minutes away from D/FW International Airport. For your perusal, we’ve picked out some lovely homes in three great neighborhoods in the Las Colinas area. Which do you see yourself in?

The unique corner-set front door portico is the first thing that jumps out at you as you walk up to this 2000-built home in well-established Hackberry Creek.
