Minimalist Modern Beach House

Is your beach house style minimalist modern like this cool property? Find out by taking this quiz!

I got minimalist modern, which, considering my love of neutrals and nature-inspired color and design, really makes sense. Organic, full of curves and angles, with a variety of textures in a simple palette sounds so dreamy!

We’re still celebrating Vacation Home Week over on CandysDirt.com, and yesterday we took a look at what you can get in Santa Fe: a gorgeous fractional interest at Fairmont Heritage Place El Corazon de Santa Fe.

The units are luxurious and have the absolute best location in town. Just blocks from the Plaza, and close to dining and culture, and my favorite Santa Fe destination, the Georgia O’Keefe museum. Dallasites love Santa Fe as a getaway, since it’s within driving distance and feels so wonderfully removed thanks to the mountains and deserts.

See how you can fall in love with a fractional in the heart of Santa Fe on CandysDirt.com!

We’re featuring some amazing vacation homes and communities on CandysDirt.com this week as part of our Vacation Home Week celebration. It’s our way of saying farewell to summer!

Our first property is an amazing home that is a truly ripe opportunity: A home amongst producing blueberry fields in Rockport, Maine! The home itself is gorgeous, and thanks to a generous Ag Exemption, it’s financially smart, too!

Front of Home

Talk about location, y’all! Commuting distance to Dallas, and right by Highway 75 and McKinney, 4445 County Road 208 in Celina is for the working rancher. The property is a modest 7.22 acres, so plenty of room for a few stay-at-home horses without being overwhelming or too much to take care of. Seven acres is still what I like to call “riding lawnmower size.” No tractor required.
