claremont park

If you’re looking for an East Dallas home, but have sticker shock from Lakewood listings, cast your gaze toward our Thursday Three Hundred.

The Claremont Park cutie at 2525 Fenestra Dr. has 2,153 square feet, hardwood floors in all living areas, smart landscaping, and a friendly asking price. It’s just five minutes from the north shores of White Rock Lake and a few blocks from the 8-acre Lakeland Hills Park, with its own skate park.

This is a one-story house with three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and one half bath, built in 1962. Let’s take a look.

DFW open houses

The Jacobean Tudor at 6243 La Vista Dr. in East Dallas is a rare find, and one of five DFW open houses we’re featuring this week.

Open houses are a weekend tradition, and with a glorious weather forecast for Saturday and Sunday (highs in the low 80s, lows in the mid-50s!), it’s a stellar opportunity to get out and about.

By our count, there are around 50 listed open houses on realtor.com just in Dallas and nearby suburbs. We’ve picked five to feature here, based on their size, location, amenities, and unusual factors (the one pictured above is listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places).

The prices range from the $375K to $1.469 million, and we’ve got houses all over Dallas and University Park. Let us know what you think!
