It may get hotter than blue blazes during Dallas summers, but we have plenty of positively divine weather, too (stick your head outside today for proof—high of 74°!).
During these gorgeous days, outdoor space is a must. Today’s Tuesday Two Hundred, at 9206 Forest Hills Blvd., offers it in spades, with a secluded front courtyard and big backyard. This Casa Linda house sits on 0.33 acres, located near Buckner and Garland in East Dallas.
This is a 2-1 with 1,264 square feet, built in 1946. This is a modest-sized home, but with such a big yard, there’s plenty of room to add onto the house, if new homeowners desire.
It was listed Jan. 29 by Jenny Capritta with RE/MAX DFW Associates for $299,500.
The Casa Linda area offers close proximity to White Rock Lake, the Dallas Arboretum, and the historic Casa Linda Shopping Center. This home is a 1.2-mile walk from Winfrey Point, one of the prettiest spots on the lake.
The front courtyard is unusual, and adds such a special, unexpected feature to this home. The backyard is also a surprise: so much green space!
The interior of this home is renovated and looks smart: hardwoods, fresh paint, crown molding, wood-burning fireplace with gas logs, and an updated kitchen with granite counters and a gas range.
The downsides? Only one bathroom without much storage, small closets (era-appropriate), and a floorplan that feels a little choppy. But overall, this home is a great package. And at $237 per square foot, it’s on par with neighborhood comps. Nine recent comparable sales ranged from $150 to $282 (average: $222 ; median: $214).
