Another stunner from Kerry Paradise Slaughter! You know we love Lochwood, mainly because of its gorgeous rolling hills, fantastic neighborhood atmosphere, and the fantastic diversity of architecture. This is the anti-cookie-cutter neighborhood, with huge trees and a wonderful park!
“With hidden creeks and ponds, Lochwood is a little gem among East Dallas neighborhoods,” Said Paradise Slaughter, whose fast-growing team has carved out a niche in White Rock Lake area real estate. “The community has a very active neighborhood association that sponsors Fourth of July parades and many other community building events throughout the year.”
And this little wonder of a home is too cute to pass up. Lance Selgo of Unique Exposure Photography did a bang-up job capturing all of the charm in this four-bedroom, two-bath beauty. Seriously, check out the listing slideshow, which has tons more photos. The parquet floors, funky wallpaper, and cute built-ins and trim really pop in 11045 Carissa, which has more than 1,900 square feet. It’s priced at $319,000, and looks worth every penny thanks to expert staging from none other than Karen Eubank. If you’re keeping track, that’s TWO listings from Karen this week. Does she ever sleep?
“The fourth bedroom, perfect as a guest room or home office, makes this house a real find,” Paradise Slaughter added. “Lush landscaping out front, a spacious back yard, and a quiet spot on the street further enhance the appeal of this house.”
There’s a galley kitchen with a breakfast nook, too, and there have been some upgrades to the 1971 traditional, but there’s still some room for customization and investment. I do adore the family room, which has a vaulted ceiling and a lovely brick fireplace, as well as built-ins. It’s a wonderful spot for getting cozy!
And while this home has a wonderful backyard, if you need a change of pace it’s just a few blocks from the recently renovated Lochwood Park, Paradise Slaughter says, “where you’ll find preschool moms at the park with their littles, local instructors working with pre-teens on their tennis game, and neighbors getting in a little exercise on the walking path.”
Sounds perfect. But you already knew that this area was special, right? Nothing is more evocative of that than its special community involvement programs. In fact, almost 2 years ago Scott Paradise (brother of the listing agent) founded SNAP (Service Neighborhood Assistance Program), a neighborhood group dedicated to coordinating volunteers to help elderly neighborhood with various personal and household needs.
“Even those not eligible for SNAP find that if they make a post on the community Facebook page
, they will almost always be assisted by a willing neighbor,” Paradise Slaughter said.
What a wonderful place to live!
