Some things never go out of style, and we count the quaint brick cottages of East Dallas on that list. This one in the Lakewood-area enclave of Gastonwood is a perfect example. Red brick, classic black shutters, and tidy traditional architecture is a dream from the curb.
Clocking in at just 1,750 square feet with two bedrooms and two full baths, this home is definitely cozy. But what’s wonderful about this traditional cottage is that the spaces are so well planned that they don’t feel small. The added living area from the enclosed porch, now used as a home office, would make another great living area, too — perfect for curling up on a lounge with a book.
Built in 1937, this Howard Meyer-designed house sits in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in East Dallas. Located at 6938 Casa Loma in the C Streets area was just mere hours ago today with Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate agent Nancy Johnson. She’s priced this warm, colorful, classic home for $489,000, or $279.43 per square foot hits the market today. The home is truly a charmer, and it’s only a short distance from Lakewood Country Club. If the location wasn’t already great, you’ll find comfort in knowing that neighborhood feeds into sought after Lakewood Elementary.
The kitchen, which is open to the living area, features traditional white cabinetry with contemporary stainless hardware and only open shelving up top in order to feel more spacious. The white cabinets, soft beige tile, and warm butcherblock countertops go together in an exceedingly eye-pleasing way.
The master bath features sweet vintage tile, a pedestal sink, and a separate shower stall. For a home this age, this bath would have been a big luxury when it was built! It definitely holds onto its subtle charm thanks to the neutral color scheme. Too many vintage bathrooms have met the sledgehammer thanks to the pink tile or color-coordinating toilets and sinks.
The backyard really is the best of East Dallas living — nearly everyone has some kind of outdoor living space, and this lovely deck is just perfect for hosting a few friends. Add a basketball goal in the back driveway and you’ve got hours of entertainment for adults and kids alike.
We know that this home won’t be on the market for long — cute ones always go fast! — so get in touch with Nancy Johnson if you’re interested!
