Open Houses to Hit This [Fourth of July] Weekend

Four for the Fourth.
By Caitlin Clark |

Do you like to home ogle? Do you like driving by houses and thinking to yourself, “I’ve been in there. Their indoor hot tub was quite appealing”? Do you actually need to find a new home to live in? In honor of the holiday responsible for this lovely long weekend, we scouted four open houses in four different neighborhoods that look well worth the trip.


laneri 3
2415 Laneri Avenue | Open Sunday from 2 – 4pm

The Neighborhood: M Streets / Vickery Place

The Price: $809,000

Why It Looks Cool: Modern living never looked so clean. I mean that both aesthetically and literally. (You could probably eat pizza off the kitchen floor.) Architect Paul Jankowski and designer Jay Magee customized this home to be a hip, urban oasis as well as a smart house. You know you want to see a smart house.


oak cliff 3

919 Stewart Drive | Open Sunday from 2 – 4pm

The Neighborhood: North Oak Cliff

The Price: $499,000

Why It Looks Cool: My heart always melts a little for a great Tudor house, but this Kessler home’s lagoon bottom pool put it in full on sludge mode. The welcoming interior is gorgeously decorated, and features some really stunning architectural and design elements. Think oversized kitchen, glass tile backsplash, and beautiful hardwoods. Keep an eye out for the chic black chandelier.

7701 Yamini Drive | Open Sunday from 2 – 4pm

The Neighborhood: Jan Mar

The Price: $997,000

Why It Looks Cool: You may think you’ve seen a home with a bright, open floor plan. You may think you’ve seen black and white done to perfection. You probably have, but I bet this mid-century modern at least gives those past sightings a run for their money.



4205 Caruth Boulevard | Open Saturday from 9am – 5pm

The Neighborhood: University Park

The Price: $1,200,000

Why It Looks Cool: Honestly, it’s just a beautifully made home, but the brand new casement windows certainly don’t hurt. Each room in the 1930s-built home is striking, but it’s the lovely little backyard area that really ups the cool factor.
