8616 Turtle Creek Boulevard #310.

It offers a gourmet kitchen with a large center island, fireplace, beautiful hardwoods, and an open floorplan designed to make the space feel roomy. A private balcony overlooks gardens and a pool. The primary suite has a spa-like en suite bathroom and a custom closet. The community amenities include a coffee lounge, infinity pool, fitness center, outdoor fireplaces, clubroom, and a sky terrace with skyline views. $265,000. Open house: 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
4117 Wycliff Avenue, Dallas. It may be a townhome, but this three bedroom, two-and-a-half bath home still boasts 20 foot ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows, as well as a wood burning fireplace. It’s been updated and outfitted with plenty of highly-desirable details (including hardwoods and soapstone counters), and includes an incredible amount of space – even the closets and storage areas are expanded and customized. There’s no HOA, and you still get a backyard and covered patio. $599,000. Open house: 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
