OPEN HOUSE: Sunday, Nov. 8, 1-3 p.m.

Listed for just under half a million bucks, the 1940s bungalow at 6426 Vickery Blvd. in East Dallas’ Lakewood Estates is simply marvelous. It’s a 2-2 with 1,792 square feet and some big renovations that give it an updated, Southwestern feel. The curb appeal is now unforgettable, with a large fire pit area, and a wide stone walkway arched by decorative wood beams.

The current owners added a master suite in 2003 with slate floors in its bathroom, a walk-in closet, and private bath with a soaker tub and frameless glass separating the “wet area.” The renovated kitchen offers Silestone quartz counters, stainless steel appliances (including a gas range), white subway tile backsplash extending to the ceiling, and new white cabinetry that creates loads of storage and food prep space. A second living has access to the beautiful backyard, and there are hardwood floors throughout the home, except the bathrooms. This house is zoned for Lakewood Elementary, and was listed Nov. 2 by Kevin Sayre with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s for $499,500.

OPEN HOUSE: Sunday, Nov. 8, 2-4 p.m.

  • Better check your GPS, or your Mapsco book, or your folding map–3826 Medallion Ln. is NOT in WEST DALLAS. Trinity Groves is in West Dallas, many miles away from this house. This house is in NORTHWEST DALLAS, as any graduate of Thomas Jefferson, W.T. White, Ursuline, Hockaday, Jesuit, etc. could tell you.

      Thanks Bob, I think we just accidentally dropped the word “NORTH” from “WEST”, which I have added. We do not have copy editors and with writing 3000 words a day, sometimes we goof!
