Thursday Three Hundred: Super Updated Casa Linda Mid Century Is Twitcher Nirvana With Dark Room, Holiday Storage — $338,800

Share News:

This new listing blows me away. Just came across my desk and I could not sit still. First of all, it is not you: there is hardly any inventory to sell across town until you get north. I’ll be covering that in a future post. This Lakewood/Casa Linda pup is at Buckner/Ferguson and has been re-built by hand over a ten year period by owner architect. (Buying architect owned homes is a huge real estate secret: they get special deals on materials and it’s kind of like living with a doctor for medical care, a lawyer when you are suing someone.) 9411 Vinewood is deeply tucked a park-like, half acre, heavily treed lot. The entertainment flow is classical, with warm natural slate and bamboo flooring that spells “mid-century” cool. Check out that living room fireplace wall of floor to ceiling limestone. They must have gotten a swell deal on that gourmet kitchen with its wrap of pegged solid cherry cabinetry, granite countertops, stainless backs-plashes and full size built-in Sub-Zero fridge and freezer. (See? You think I am lying about this price!) There are even a couple of hidden cabinets because we all know you can never have enough storage! There is also a functional darkroom (or butler’s pantry) with huge Christmas storage space above. Four bedrooms, three baths, 3239 square feet of air conditioned space. Then there is the glorious backyard with open patio, wooded and chirpy with more than 118 species of  catalogued birds, all backing up to a creek. You are in pastoral paradise but minutes from the lake, Starbucks and downtown Dallas. All for $338,800? Do you not just love Dallas RE? This pup wuld be a million plus in Burlingame, CA.

    I'm not a big fan of mid-century style but this is a really cool house. I could even live with the kitchen, though I'm a hopeless romantic for island kitchens. My only big negative is that there isn't a garage because it was converted to be a music room or whatever. So to me it's priced right because you'll need the extra bread to build a garage.
