What a fantastic opportunity to buy a Ju-Nel home! This 1960 ranch, designed by Lyle Rowley and Jack Wilson, is another one of those fantastic specimens that looks amazing after a remodel. We featured another amazing Ju-Nel home in this neighborhood, Eastwood Estates, and while that one was modern with a transitional spin, this updated home is all contemporary. It’s inside the acclaimed Hexter Elementary attendance area, just down East Lake Highlands Drive from White Rock Lake, and close to great shopping at Casa Linda Plaza.
This is one of those homes that, when you see it, you have to have it. With a great location, unbelievable upgrades, and a beautiful backyard, it will truly inspire you to grab your checkbook and get a contract in!

“This custom has been extensively renovated while showcasing its original modern design,” says Re/Max DFW Associates Realtor Jenny Capritta. She’s listing this beautifully remodeled home at 10469 Coleridge Street for $599,590. This home has had a complete overhaul both inside and out, Capritta notes, with new water features in front, new Ipe hardwood trim, a custom steel fence, soffit lighting, and landscaping.
Like most Ju-Nel homes, this one has a courtyard that leads to the front door. The sellers have added river rock and greenery to the walkway, which gives it a much more refined, modern feel. I do love that the original front door remains, though, despite the many upgrades to this four-bedroom, two-bath home, which sports almost 2,900 square feet.
Walk inside the front door and the first thing that you’ll notice is the beautiful travertine floor. It leads you from the entryway to the formal dining room, which is large enough for holiday gatherings. Capritta also notes that the whole house feels light and bright. That’s thanks to the man new windows and atrium doors throughout the home.
One of the trademarks of a Ju-Nel home is the see-through fireplace, and this one doesn’t disappoint. Separating the formal dining from the oversized kitchen is a fantastic fireplace that will add ambiance to your dinner parties. Speaking of dinner, let’s talk about that kitchen. It is absolutely huge, with a gigantic eat-in island that also functions as a breakfast bar. You get beautiful new cabinets, granite counters, copious storage space, stainless steel appliances including a gas range top and double ovens. If you love to cook, but are dreaming of the day you’re no longer cramped in an outdated galley, then this is the kitchen for you!
Just off the kitchen is a family room, which is perfect for just hanging out and watching TV or gazing out the full-glass doors to the backyard pool (more on that later), but if you’re more into billiards, then you’ll love the gameroom. You can easily fit a pool table, a dartboard, and there’s plenty of room for all of your collectibles. This would make a great man-cave, too, should that idea appeal to you, or an art studio if you’re craving your own space.
The master suite is truly fantastic. The upgrades have been thoughtfully done, with a modest-sized master bedroom at 14-by-12 and even more atrium doors that offer access to the backyard, but a very well-done contemporary bath that has one of the most lovely vanities I’ve seen in a modern home in this price range. Also, I love the way the sellers used mosaic tile in this shower. It’s truly a brilliant way to add texture and style to a small bathroom without making it feel claustrophobic or much too busy.
Now, the backyard, this is the reason you would buy this home. I love what the sellers have done here, maximizing every square foot of outdoor space to offer a truly relaxing experience. There’s a great little pool with a wonderful waterfall surrounded by Leuder limestone and Oklahoma flagstone, Capritta says. The decking is warp and dry weather-resistant Ipe hardwood, and there’s a great little firepit and patio, as well as a dining nook. Considering our warm weather this week, this space is an inspiration for everyone who is thrilled to get outside.
