Friday Five Hundred: An Epic Trip in The Wayback Machine, Minus The Shag Carpeting

Share News:

You get a two-story marble fire place and tons of well-preserved wood paneling with 6441 McCommas.

Flipping through the photos of 6441 McCommas Blvd. makes me hum Steppenwolf’s “Magic Carpet Ride” completely by reflex.

Note to self: Put “Dazed And Confused” on my Netflix queue.

The interior of this 1975 Spanish style in Bob-O-Link estates is so incredibly well-preserved, right down to the foiled wallpaper and wood paneling. And boy, is there a lot of wood paneling. Like, two stories of wood paneling and then some.

It’s homes like this that make me wonder if, perhaps, 1970s Spanish homes with intact popcorn ceilings will become today’s Mid-Century Modern, after which people scramble for those that seem frozen in time.

Anywho, this old gal, in an incredibly popular area of Lakewood, has everything your disco-lovin’ heart desires, including a parquet floor, archways galore, and a kitchen worthy of a cameo on “That 70s Show.” And get this: at $589,000, the price has actually increased by $20K! Where else in Dallas does that happen?

And nobody knows high-end East Dallas better than listing agent Mary Poss, who is a former District 9 City Council member.

With four bedrooms, four baths, and incredibly high ceilings and a huge marble fireplace, you could gut this home and give it a one-way ticket to modernity. But would you want to? I mean, it’s soooooooo groooooovy!

    with all the hype, history, and glamour of the park cities we often forget about parts of East Dallas, there really are some unique homes with their own interesting history.
