Dona Satterfield is not kidding when she says she has a Trinity West one-story with gorgeous updates. And those updates will satisfy any family’s need to entertain and relax. It was the perfect choice for our Friday Five Hundred this week.

Her listing, which is with Pine & Beckett Realtors, sits at 4125 Springfield Court, and is right smack dab in the middle of the Trinity West neighborhood, practically. It’s been elegantly updated with light, airy paint colors and finishes in every single generously sized room. (more…)

Welcome Home to 8031 Abramshire Avenue !

I talked to a friend of mine the other day who lives in Merriman Park, and he was absolutely gushing about the home values in his neighborhood. He told me that I needed to see this house at 8031 Abramshire, which has undergone a bit of a transformation since it was first listed a couple of months ago. It’s now back on the market and the price for this East Dallas home may make your eyes pop a bit: $525,000.

That’s right: Here’s a three-bedroom, three-bath home with more than 3,100 square feet in the Alexanders Village area of Merriman Park listed for $168 per square foot. Just three years ago, this home was listed for $269,000. How’s that for appreciation?

Jump to see it for yourself!

6426 Westlake Front

What a fantastic home that really typifies “move in-ready” for me! For a home to be move in-ready, it has to:

  • Have immaculate neutral paint and fresh baseboards and trim,
  • Have gorgeous floors that are in tip-top shape,
  • And have a kitchen that is ready to plug-in and go!

This home, a 1937 traditional cottage, has all of these things, as well as some fantastic light fixtures and beautiful living areas. There are three bedrooms, two full baths, an updated kitchen, and more than 1,800 square feet, making this home at 6426 Westlake a perfect, cozy family property. This home, located inside Lakewood’s Country Club Estates, is listed with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s Realtor Karla Trusler for $515,000.

WhittierAWe’ve found a great property that just isn’t selling, and we’re not sure why. This prairie-style, two-story house in Colleyville was listed at the end of August, and had a $25,000 price reduction in mid-October to $599,900, but still, no buyer.

Listed by Beverly Spillyards at Ebby Halliday’s Southlake office, this property at 6712 Whittier Lane is a custom-build, one of the first in the Whittier Heights subdivision in 2004. With 4,776 square feet sitting on over a third of an acre of land, this house has a lot of everything. It’s a four bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom house with a three-car garage and all sorts of luxury details. So what’s the deal?

1108 Valencia Curb

Photos: Shoot2Sell

Here we have another great listing from Britt Lopez in Hollywood Heights, only Lopez knows this home a little bit better than some of her previous listings. Why? Because she once owned it!

This sweet split level at 1108 Valencia has so many cool selling points. Besides having a practically enormous master suite (unheard of!) and a wonderful pool in the backyard (rare!) this home is also a great spot for entertaining thanks to its oversized lot.

3242 Princess Front

I love how this home blends texture and style so effortlessly. From the front of this home in Sparkman Club Estates, you would think that it’s just your average 1960s traditional ranch. A rambler with perhaps a few updates, but nothing dramatic, nothing special.

Of course, that’s where you’d be absolutely wrong! Surprises are behind every door — even the back door! — of this 1959 traditional. Jump to see them all!

9221 Shoreview Front

This home is a wonderful change of pace, and in a fantastic White Rock-area neighborhood, too. Located in the highly sought-after White Rock North neighborhood in East Dallas, this home is a 1961 contemporary with several Midcentury touches.

It’s not straight-up midcentury modern, but it’s not 100 percent soft contemporary, either. It’s a gorgeous blend of styles that results in beautiful open spaces, banks of undressed windows, a sunken living area, and a galley kitchen that has some key updates. It has taken a lesson in curb appeal from the pros (look at that cute aqua front door!), and has tons of warm, welcoming spaces.
