LakewoodAre you a Whole Foods family, or a Trader Joes, or maybe both? We found a gorgeous Mediterranean-style duplex for rent that is perfect for every one of those choices, since it’s close to both Lower Greenville and Lakewood.

This pretty two-bedroom, two-bath home has 1,425 square feet, and is located at 6025 Lewis Street. With an updated kitchen and a washer and dryer, it feels like single-family home living. (more…)

Woodrow

All three of our homes in this week’s roundup of open houses are in the Woodrow Wilson feeder pattern, including 5939 Velasco Ave., listed by Briana Hill with Rogers Healy and Associates.

It’s not uncommon to hear that house hunters in Dallas are looking for homes in the Woodrow Wilson High School feeder pattern — it’s known for its academics, it’s fine arts programs, and its athletics, as well as its strong alumni and parent presence.

Suffice to say, if you’ve never checked out Woodrow Wilson High, you owe it to yourself to investigate, because there are tons of reasons it’s one of the most sought-after public high schools.

Every Thursday, we bring you our pick of the hottest North Texas properties in our CandysDirt.com Open Houses of the Week. These are the places you don’t want to miss that weekend. And this week, our homes all have one Dallas ISD feeder pattern in common — the Woodrow Wilson High School feeder pattern.

pitchesAs we’ve mentioned before, every week we solicit pitches for our various featured listing posts, including our weekly roundup of open houses.

You can tag us on Instagram, or even better, you can join our Facebook group, Getting the Dirt.  It’s a great place to virtually mingle with fellow professionals, ask questions, lend a hand, and, yes, pitch stories to CandysDirt.com writers. Not a Realtor? It’s a great place to get a first glimpse at some of the most recent listings all over North Texas, too.

Take, for instance, this week’s properties featured in our CandysDirt.com Open Houses of the Week. We have four incredible properties this week — consider it our usual three and a bonus house, if you will.

If you’ve never checked out Woodrow Wilson High, you owe it to yourself to investigate, because from academics (it’s an International Baccalaureate school, and routinely gets multiple distinctions from the Texas Education Agency) to fine arts (its band has been featured on the Today show) to athletics, there’s a reason it’s one of the most sought-after of public high schools.

And if you think that’s hyperbole, just wait until a few parents and alumni find this story and take to the comments or Facebook. They’re fiercely proud of this school, and with good reason.

So let’s take a look at the three homes (two zoned for Mockingbird Elementary, another zoned for Geneva Heights) we’ve chosen this week. (more…)
