Pros: This charming four-bedroom, 2.5-bath abode is tucked into the prestigious University Park and is in the top-ranked school system in North Texas.
Con: It’s only 2,052 square feet, yet $450 per square foot. Not a great bang for your buck.
Pros: Everything is truly larger outside the city. This five-bedroom, 4.5-bath McKinney manor has soaring ceilings, a gourmet eat-in kitchen and a wet bar as large as most New Yorkers’ apartments.
Con: If you work in Dallas, your commute could take more than an hour in each direction.
Pros: This home in Southlake has four bedrooms, three full baths and two half baths, and was built in 2014 using energy-efficient building products (insulation and roofing) to keep utility bills in check, plus it sits on three-quarters of an acre.
Con: Newly built cookie-cutter homes tend to lack character and charm.
Pros: This five-bedroom, 4.5-bath manse has almost 6,000 square feet of living space and sits on more than three-quarters of an acre overlooking a pristine golf course. Highlights include a pool, an outdoor kitchen and a media room.
Con: Where exactly is Aledo again?
Pros: This three-bedroom, 3.5-bath historic Cowtown casa has a living-room wall covered entirely in coral. There’s a separate 1,366-square-foot guesthouse for when your mother-in-law visits.
Cons: Maybe you’re not into coral walls. Or your mother-in-law.
Pros: Aside from having every top-quality appliance (think Sub-Zero and Thermador), this five-bedroom, 4.5-bath Dallas dwelling has a wine room built for a thousand bottles.
Con: You’ve got to seriously love wood to buy this home. Every room is trimmed out from floor to ceiling with oak and pine.
Pros: If you love, love, love sharp lines and mid-century modern, then this is your four-bedroom, four-bath Preston Hollow dream home. Plus, since it hasn’t actually been built yet, it can be tailored to your specific taste in finishings.
Con: Again, not built yet. Meaning the finish date could get pushed back due to weather, material deliveries and city-mandated inspections.
Pros: This stunning four-bedroom, 3.5-bath dwelling is within walking distance of NorthPark Center and is technically in Dallas city (taxes are much lower than in the neighboring University Park).
Con: You’re paying $1 million to hear the traffic on Northwest Highway and Stemmons Freeway.
Confession: We have Cristal taste but a Boone’s Farm budget. OK, we’re not actually sipping strawberry wine--but we sometimes feel that way when it comes to real estate in Dallas.
But is the market as expensive as we suspect? We decided to do some hunting and see what a cool $1 million would get us around town. As it turns out, there are quite a few stunners smack in that price range (but, as always, you might have to sacrifice size or location).
