Friday After the Royal Wedding House-Candy: VavavaVoom on Van Dyke

Share News:

Kate and Wills are on their way to wedded bliss, but you could be married to the home of your deepest, wildest mid century modern dreams. First up: o la la location: .66 acres of lush greenery in East Dallas (120 wide by 236 deep) that backs up to a protected land site that will never be developed. So you will never have PITA neighbors back there, just rabbits and all the other critters of the field. You will also get that “estate-feel” without actually owning an estate.

Walk in and you see the master bedroom right in front, which is a little weird but then when you realize it’s to preserve a view of the lake, makes total sense. Breathtaking views of downtown Dallas skyline over White Rock Lake are out your front window. Built in 1960, designed by architect Donald Speck, the gleaming original terrazzo floors he specified remain in pristine condition. Gourmet kitchen has been updated with glass ceiling in the kitchen, bird‚Äôs eye maple cabinets, top shelf stainless appliances, composite and stainless counters, ELAN touch screen home controls, and a boatload of extensive updates. Did I tell you 5700 square feet, four bedrooms, three and a half baths? Did I tell you how much… or perhaps I should say, how little: $1,049,000 and I hear the sellers are very motivated! Listing agent is a dynamic young agent named Subhi Gharbieh, who is working with that other young dynamo, Clay Stapp. And when I say young, Subhi is a mere 22 year old pup. But the kid’s been selling homes since he was 18.

9729 Van Dyke Road was featured in the 2001 AIA Dallas Guide to Architecture. Really, it’s an East Dallas treasure.
