This trend has been building over the past few years in North Dallas. In the 1980s and 90s we saw the McMansion boom. Those home are easily identified by the high porches with a large window above the front door from which you can view the foyer chandelier and staircase from the street. About the same time we saw lots of mini-castles popping up with turrets and tons of scrolling ironwork.
In the early 2000s Mediterranean style homes, showcasing tile roofs,started appearing in North Dallas neighborhoods. Now the contemporary home is king. Add a big touch of nature and environmentally friendly features, and you have a winner. I look for this trend to continue over the next few years. [where: 75230]
