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.

Eastwood house

For today’s Tuesday Two Hundred, we’re venturing to the East Dallas neighborhood of Eastwood. The house at 8917 Sweetwater Dr. just hit the market last week and is simply lovely, from its well-imagined floorplan and thoughtful details like built-ins, to totally renovated kitchen and bathrooms and towering shade trees on the lot.

This 1962 ranch was just listed last week and went under contract within days—one look inside and you’ll see why. The neighborhood is also a big selling point: Eastwood is minutes southeast of White Rock Lake, near the Claremont area. (There’s a better-known neighborhood nearby also called Eastwood, which is roughly bounded by East Lake Highlands, Peavy, Garland Road, and Easton. Not that same area as this one.)

This Eastwood house is close to St. Francis Park, Lakeland Hills Park, Ferguson Park, and Casa Linda Park, and two miles from the Dallas Arboretum and the east shore of White Rock Lake.

It’s a three bedroom, 2.5 bathroom house with 1,986 square feet, listed by Patricia Sterling at The Michael Group Real Estate for $265,000.
