Dallas Area Information

Dallas is situated in a flat, open landscape characteristic of northern Texas, next to the Trinity River. There are also many large lakes within the metro area, like Grapevine Lake, Lewisville Lake, Lavon Lake, Lake Ray Hubbard, and Mountain Creek Lake.

Dallas is connected to Austin in the south via the Interstate 35, a trip that takes approximately 3 hours. San Antonio is another hours drive south of that. Houston Texas is also 3 hours away to the southeast. A number of major transport routes converge on Dallas, including the I-30, I-20, I-45, and I-635.

Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport is only 20 minutes northwest of the city core and is a major international airport.

Dallas Real Estate

As a vibrant and advanced city with a deep history, Dallas has a range of real estate options on offer.

The suburbs of Dallas are filled with mid-century single family homes. Many of these are laid out in classic ranch style - a cross-gabled single-level under a low-hipped roof and stretched across a wide property. Other variations include garrison or split-level designs, with red brick and white facing, simple porticos, and shuttered windows, among other minimal-traditional details.

The lucky few will be able to find some authentic mid-century modern homes, complete with long sloping A-frames, clerestory windows, extended roof supports, and open-plan interiors.

More contemporary homes display a mix of revival Texas farmhouse styles. Here you can see pale sandstone exteriors, sheet metal roofs, wide front porches, and other rustic or barn-reno details.

One focus on Dallas homes for sale is the materials and textures. Granite, steel, rough-hewn stone, and hardwood floors are the order of the day in these well-finished homes.

Clean, light interiors and wide-open exteriors are the norm. Moving further towards the city core, properties understandably become slimmer, and the homes more modern in their design. Sleek angular masses and unadorned windows are the standard here, along with the best in modern and luxurious appliances and fittings.
