Neighborhoods can evolve rapidly, and we’re always on the lookout for the hidden gems that are in the process of turning over and becoming the next hot place to buy.
On our radar now? Homes close to the Santa Fe Trail in East Dallas. It’s a hop, skip, and jump from Lakewood, Hollywood Heights, and White Rock Lake, right on the Santa Fe Trail, and zoned for Lakewood Elementary, which earns a “10” out of 10 from greatschools.org.
We’ve found an incredible listing at 310 S. Glasgow Dr., a new construction just listed for $599,000. With almost 3,000 square feet, designer finishes, and sleek, transitional style, this same house would be priced at $849K if it were just two blocks away, closer to Lakewood shopping center, said listing agent Lee Lamont with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.
“This house and several others nearby were just built by BCH Development, who have been in Lakewood and the Park Cities for 20 years,” Lamont said. “This price is unheard of in East Dallas for a new home with a full builder’s warranty sophisticated spaces, high-end finishes throughout, and remarkable efficiency with foam wall insulation and low-E windows.”
Like the home next door that just went under contract, this home has four bedrooms, three full bathrooms, one half bath, an office, two living areas, and 2,938 square feet on two stories. Let’s take a look!
Located near La Vista Drive and Abrams Road, this house is steps from the Santa Fe Trail. This connects White Rock Lake to Deep Ellum and Fair Park, traversing through East Dallas’ cultural and natural landmarks with a 12-foot-wide concrete pathway for walking, running, or biking.
Sitting on the fringes of Lakewood, and close to Mount Auburn (the next neighborhood that will soon be gentrified, with over 800 home sites and local builders already tearing down over 30 homes), this property is just over four miles from downtown Dallas, and close to Woodrow Wilson High School, Lakewood Country Club, and the Tenison Park Golf Course. It’s a phenomenal location.
“So many buyers want to be in Lakewood proper, but are priced out,” Lamont said. “This area offers a nearby East Dallas location for significantly less — I predict a lot of interest in this neighborhood.”
I love the stately and elegant curb appeal of this transitional-style house, with painted brick, steep gables, a solid wood front door, and new landscaping. Those baby plants will get big fast with the in-ground sprinkler system.
Inside, the entryway gives you the first hint of the stylish decor, with a retro-glam chandelier, rich hardwoods, and a home office with wainscoting and a dramatic 10-foot tray ceiling. Love it.
Walk down the hallway through an arched doorway to the great room, kitchen, and dining area. This open-concept floorplan is very modern and what so many buyers want. This is a fabulous space for entertaining. The kitchen features white Shaker-style cabinets, contemporary pendant lights, a white subway tile backsplash, granite countertops, a walk-in pantry, stainless steel appliances, and an island with breakfast bar.
On the other side of the great room, a corner fireplace sets the stage for cozy evenings at home. A glass door leads to the backyard and patio spaces.
The first-floor master has the feel of a retreat, with a large bathroom featuring marble, marble, and more marble. Lovely! There’s a large vanity with two sinks, HUGE walk-in closet with built-in shelves, oversized shower, and deep soaker tub.
The other three bedrooms are all good-sized with nice, big closets you’d never find in an older home. That kind of small detail makes all the difference and is one reason people love buying a new home like this one.
The second living area is located upstairs and is grand indeed, with soaring ceilings, closet space, lots of windows, and great natural light.
The backyard is the perfect blank slate, with a large covered patio just waiting for new owners to bring their grill and hammock. It offers a brand-new privacy fence and lots of grassy green space.
If you’d like to learn more about this newly listed beauty on the Santa Fe Trail and Dallas’ next hot neighborhood, contact Lee Lamont at 214.418.2780 or firstname.lastname@example.org. There is an open house this Sunday from 1-3 p.m.
