6861 Lakewood Boulevard

Although this is the preferred entrance for family use, it’s actually the service entrance of the home.

The Dines and Kraft Tudor at 6861 Lakewood Boulevard is, without a doubt, one of the most beloved homes in Lakewood — and it’s finally for sale again. It was just listed by Annamari Lannon of Allie Beth Allman for $1.249 million, and that is a great price for a home of this caliber.

Built in 1928, the three-story, 4,160-square-foot home is often referred to by neighbors as “The Ohio House.” Take a look at the first photo, closely. Look to the left, peeking through the leaves of the tree. Let us know in our comments section if you figure out why it’s been given that name! (more…)

Today’s Thursday Three Hundred is a rare treat. This Junius Heights Tudor, located just south of the heart of Lakewood at 731 Lipscomb Ave., charms with its vintage curb appeal and original details throughout the interior. Updates, like the quartz kitchen countertops, commercial-grade stainless steel range, and master bathroom addition, address common concerns in a house from this era (1924), and make it appealing for modern buyers.

With the addition, the house is now a 3-2, with 1,948 square feet, spacious for a Tudor and for the neighborhood. You can’t beat the location, walking distance to Lakewood Shopping Center and a short distance from the south end of White Rock Lake.

This house was listed Tuesday by Brittney Warren of Rogers Healy and Associates for $389,000, so this is a first look at this property.

I was in Lakewood earlier this week looking at a stunning, stunning home I will show you in a bit. Unfortunately, I had to rush home because our fire alarm was going off — false alarm, thank God– so I had to leave the area lickety-split. Otherwise, I’d probably still be there.

White Rock Lake is so gorgeous — I don’t care what anyone says. It’s water, and it moves. Looking at that sunlight glistening off of the ripples just infuses you with a calming peace. While my alarm company was blowing up my phone, I looked at that water and thought, well, who cares, we have insurance. Then I recalled that Bree (the Doodle) was in the house, so I got my adrenaline all pumped up and ran home as fast as I could. (more…)
