2211 N. Fitzhugh Front

We’ve talked a lot about East Village and the neighborhood’s battles with commercial development, but we don’t really talk too much about the homeowners who would be affected by a huge big-box store moving in nearby. This beautiful townhome at 2211 N. Fitzhugh is a great example of an East Village property, though. This sleek, open home has everything you could want in an urban address, with three bedrooms, three full baths, and a gorgeous deck for entertaining.

This is a Clay Stapp + Co. listing from Realtor Matt Scobee, and it is just phenomenal inside! Jump for more!

Today we take a look at three different homes from three different brokerages in three different neighborhoods to see what you can get in the $400K range.

6159 Kenwood Front

We know that Lakewood Elementary is extremely sought after, with homes that would have sold for the mid $200ks a year and some change ago, selling for upwards of $325K in most cases. Of course, then there’s the M Streets area that feeds into Stonewall Jackson Elementary. It’s sought after for two reasons — not only is this area cozy and intimate feeling, but it’s extremely walkable and close to shopping and entertainment.

This home has a lot going for it besides the great curb appeal and fantastic location: It’s owned by Republic Property Group’s Tony Ruggeri! His company is behind those fantastic North Texas communities such as Light Farms, Phillips Creek Ranch, and Lantana!

Picturesque country living.

After yesterday’s high winds knocking out power in just about every direction in Dallas, It has made the notion of moving to the country even more attractive. Of course, I wouldn’t want to move too far. But Celina is a healthy distance away without being out in the boonies.

Now, some farmhouse properties are just plain boring, outdated, and truly overdone. This home, however, is just perfect for a family who wants neighbors with a little bit more space between them, room to run around, and a pool, too.

I have a confession to make: If this house were a person, it would have to take a restraining order out on me. That’s how hard I’ve been stalking this beauty, waiting patiently for Virginia Cook Realtor Ed Murchison to put this gorgeous midcentury modern home at 10845 Eden Roc on MLS. And now it’s here, and you, too, can bask in the fantastic original details inside this two-story home that takes full advantage of its sloping lot in Sylvania Dells, a Lake Highlands neighborhood that has tons of architecturally interesting mid-mods. It’s priced at  $475,000.

There are so many cool details to this property, many of which are original to the home. It is definitely one of those houses that will impress a midcentury modern enthusiast.

Sometimes I am just so stinking amazed at the cool listings Carrie Hill and Jacy Olson snag. They are working their way up to Brandon Stewart and Scott Carlson territory, I swear. Just goes to show how amazing these agents are!

This midcentury modern in Royal Springs Estates is just epic, too. It has to be the equivalent of a unicorn in Dallas real estate circles, because not only is it an amazing example of midcentury modern architecture, but it has been lovingly remodeled in a way that updates the home without destroying the character that makes these types of houses so highly sought after.

7715 Maplecrest Front

All of those 1960s ranches with outdated wallpaper and brass fixtures, ugly tile and walls everywhere are probably pretty jealous right about now. I mean, why wouldn’t they when this lovely, attention-getting remodeled 1962 ranch at 7715 Maplecrest looks like it does. I mean, it’s sexy little number in a fantastic neighborhood, with all the upgrades you could want in a home this size.

Truly, this home is an absolute stunner. It’s a well-designed project from Gregory Hagmann Architects that was well-executed by Restructure Corporation of Dallas. It is open, daring, and still warm. It is dang-near perfect.

Perhaps that’s why the three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath home with more than 2,661 square feet marketed by Clay Stapp + Co. Realtor Richard Baker actually went up in price from its original $472,500 to its now $484,500. That’s a $12,000 jump, for those who don’t want to do the math.

But what do you get for the money?
