If you’re looking for an East Dallas home, but have sticker shock from Lakewood listings, cast your gaze toward our Thursday Three Hundred.
The Claremont Park cutie at 2525 Fenestra Dr. has 2,153 square feet, hardwood floors in all living areas, smart landscaping, and a friendly asking price. It’s just five minutes from the north shores of White Rock Lake and a few blocks from the 8-acre Lakeland Hills Park, with its own skate park.
This is a one-story house with three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and one half bath, built in 1962. Let’s take a look.
Claremont Park is an established East Dallas neighborhood with winding creeks, arching shade trees, and close proximity to the area’s major attractions, like the Dallas Arboretum. Homes in this neighborhood are much more affordable than many other East Dallas areas, with many in the $300K price range. The average size of houses in Claremont Park is about 1,750 square feet, so this house is bigger than most.
Manicured landscaping invites you into this home, which has a traditional floorplan with a formal dining room and two living areas, one of which is a sunroom in the back, with vaulted ceiling and skylights. With a two-car garage, it’s a rare find in this area.
A renovated, eat-in kitchen offers buyer must-haves, like granite countertops, fresh white cabinets, a marble subway tile backsplash, and stainless steel appliances, including a gas range.
The main living area is anchored by a brick, wood-burning fireplace with gas logs. A beamed ceiling and built-in bookshelves/cabinets add extra appeal to the room. Just off this space is the sunroom, overlooking the backyard.
The master bathroom is renovated with a jetted tub, marble countertops, white cabinetry, dual sinks, fresh paint, and new fixtures and mirror.
In back, more landscaping and a wood deck and plenty of grassy green space for your kids or four-legged friends.
This home was listed March 31 by Jini Cyr with Ebby Halliday Realtors for $319,500.
