Midcentury Modern fans, we’ve got a great house for you.
Located at 2210 Saint Francis Ave., this 1956 Midcentury marvel has lots of hallmarks of that era, from a low-pitched roof and heavily treed lot to interior features that look positively atomic era.
This is a 3-2 with 1,690 square feet, near Ferguson Road and Lakeland Drive in the Forrest Oaks neighborhood. It retains tons of vintage charms with some essential updates, like new kitchen, roof, and re-done hardwoods in 2011, and a new HVAC and water heater in March 2016.
Our Tuesday Two Hundred was listed April 27 by Linda Criswell with Dallas City Center Realtors for $279,000.
The location is the first selling feature of this Dallas Midcentury Modern: near Lakewood and White Rock Lake, and next to Saint Francis Park, which offers almost 25 acres with lots of green space, an outdoor basketball court, playground, pavilion, and picnic tables.
The drive-up appeal is undeniable, too, with pink Roman brick, mature trees, and that appealing roofline. There’s a large shed in carport for storage.
Inside, the partially open floorplan shows off vaulted ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, outdoor views and natural light, a rock accent interior wall, recessed lighting, and clerestory windows. The new galley kitchen is white and more white, with lacquered cabinets and stainless steel appliances.
The large master bedroom has an all-new ensuite bathroom with high-end fixtures, and the second bath has its original mint-green tile. Very cute.
Midcentury Modern homes, particularly in East Dallas, sell quickly. Buyers have a big appetite for the retro charms, and no doubt this one will be gone before you can say, “Where’s Don Draper when you want him?”
