In these parts, homes designed by AIA award-winning architect Russell Buchanan often command top dollar. Part of that is location, but Buchanan’s work usually lands in some of the very best places. This particular Buchanan-designed home is no exception. Located on a plum lot in the wonderful sustainable and modern development Urban Reserve, 29 Vanguard Way offers exceptional views, amenities, location, value, and style all wrapped in Buchanan’s trademark lines and angles.

“Russell Buchanan is a blue chip architect and to be able to purchase one of his designs for under $700K is a unique opportunity,” says listing agent Ed Murchison, who has priced this gorgeous home with a courtyard pool and gorgeous kitchen at $699,000. Considering the cachet of the neighborhood and the architect, it’s easy to see why this stellar home is our High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans.

Splurge vs. Steal: Two Renovated Midcentury Modern Houses | CandysDirt.com

One of the most popular housing styles around the country is midcentury modern. Classic features in these houses built between the early 1930s to mid-1960s include open floorplans, clean lines, light-filled spaces,  and a simplicity of style that translates beautifully into 2018. 

Certain Dallas neighborhoods have pockets of these architectural gems; many have been lovingly restored and updated, like the two properties in this week’s Splurge vs. Steal. We’re looking at two renovated midcentury modern houses, one in Northwest Dallas and the other in North Dallas’ Janmar neighborhood. Both are so lovely, it’s hard to pick a favorite. So pour a martini, put on some Sinatra, and check out our picks!

The idea of an income property appeals to lots of real estate buyers. If you’re up for the challenge and responsibility, this investment can generate income and build your net worth more rapidly than a single-family property alone. 

In today’s Splurge vs. Steal, we’re looking at two multi-family buildings in Dallas. Both are priced under a million dollars, which makes them somewhat rare in the market. There are pros and cons to each — which income property would you buy if you had the opportunity?

There are a lot of great condos in the East Lovers Lane area, many of which are within walking distance to the Lovers Lane DART station, making for a quick commute downtown if that’s where you’re headed. However, a lot of these condos are fantastic income-producing properties thanks to their proximity to Southern Methodist University. Buy a condo for your student’s stint at SMU, and thanks to the healthy real estate market, you can either lease it once they graduate or sell for a healthy profit.

This particular building, The Tuscany at 5904 Sandhurst, is so well cared for and has tons of great amenities, including a courtyard swimming pool, fountains, and fabulous landscaping. Scoring a unit here is a challenge, as they tend to go quickly. And considering how well-maintained our High Caliber Home of the Week is, we’re not surprised at all to see that it’s already under option contract. Heck, if we were in the market, we would have contacted Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans to get in an offer fast!
