NEW GASTON TERRACE MODERN MARVEL WITH THOUGHTFUL, ELEGANT SPACES
Open house: Saturday, April 15, 12-2 p.m.
Gaston Terrace is a hot East Dallas neighborhood where lots of older homes are being razed and replaced with new construction. Case in point, the modern marvel at 7326 Coronado Ave. This is one of the few true contemporary builds you’ll find in Lakewood with four bedrooms, three full bathrooms, one half bath, and 4,210 square feet on two stories, built in 2017.
You’ll have plenty of space to entertain with an open layout, upstairs living area that overlooks the ground floor, large kitchen, and spacious backyard. The marriage of wood, stucco, and metal combine to create a stunning look and feel. In the living room, a huge gray brick fireplace is a striking visual feature, and the area is open to the kitchen and dining areas. The kitchen is a dream, with quartz countertops, a large center island, gray contemporary cabinets, and stainless steel appliances, including a gas range. Other notable features include hardwood floors almost everywhere, a downstairs master, luxe master bath, oversized master closet, and tons of large windows.
