One home feature that tops the list time and again with buyers is an open floorplan.
The renovated ranch at 8566 Sweetwater Dr. offers this buyer favorite in its 2,295 square feet — the living and dining areas and kitchen all have a spacious, open feel and the line of sight is nearly unobstructed.
This is a 4-3 with built in 1961 in the Claremont neighborhood, one of the Lake and Garden District’s heavily treed areas. This ranch is close to White Rock Lake, Casa Linda Plaza Shopping Center, Tenison Park Golf Course, Dallas Arboretum, and Lakewood Country Club. It’s definitely got location going for it.
It was listed May 16 by Shannon Stupay with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Penfed Realty Texas for $365,000.
Claremont is a neighborhood of about 600 homes in the East Dallas, an established area with winding creeks, arching shade trees, and an active neighborhood association. Homes in this neighborhood are much more affordable than Lakewood, with many in the $300K price range. The average size of houses in Claremont is about 1,750 square feet, so this house is significantly bigger and more updated than most.
The curb appeal is smart, with a grassy lawn and manicured landscaping. The kitchen in this ranch was taken to the studs and now has lots of on-trend white cabinets, granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances, including a gas range (the refrigerator is negotiable in the sale of the house). The master bedroom features vaulted ceilings, a large walk-in closet, and luxe master bath with dual sinks and a frameless glass shower. In back, there’s a nice-size gated yard with a covered patio.
With a price tag well below $400K and so many thoughtful updates in this turn-key property, we don’t think it will last long.
