Sure, fully updated properties are great. They mean little to no work for the buyer, and if you get a good home warranty, you’re covered should anything go wrong. The downside? You have to live with someone else’s tile choices in the kitchen and bath, and why is that wall still there? You may never know.

Our Home of the Week sponsored by Inwood National Bank is your chance to add a touch of personality to a Midcentury Modern in East Dallas. Located in Eastwood Estates, a haven of mid-mods and gorgeous creek views, this home is a project for the adventurous.

Designed by architect Thomas Knowles and built in 1963, 940 Forest Grove has four bedrooms, three and a half baths, more than 3,300 square feet, and the most amazing see-through fireplace I have ever seen. The soaring ceilings and clerestory windows are hallmarks of Midcentury Modern design, as is the stone fireplace. However, sitting in the middle of the room and stacked all the way to the ceiling, this fireplace is an incredible design feature that will keep you oohhing and aahhing as you sign on the dotted line.

This home also features a study that, with the floor-to-ceiling windows, will keep anyone who inhabits it inspired. The kitchen is really the only project to complete, and already features high-end stainless appliances. Really, think of it as an opportunity to create your dream kitchen! The bathrooms are livable, but could definitely use an updating when you’re ready to take them on. 

It’s priced at a very reasonable $459,000 by David Griffin & Co. Realtor David Collier. Look like your dream home? Contact the helpful loan officers at Inwood National Bank and Inwood Mortgage to get the ball rolling on financing the perfect Midcentury Modern home for you and your family.
