Located near Garland Road and North Buckner Boulevard in Casa Linda, the home at 9207 Forest Hills Blvd. sits on a 0.39-acre corner lot and is cute as can be. This is our Thursday Three Hundred and it’s recently updated and walking distance to the Dallas Arboretum and White Rock Lake. Fabulous!
This home has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,672 square feet on one story, built in 1950.
The Casa Linda area used to be a family farm, with development starting in 1939 with Casa Linda Plaza coming in the following years. Dallas annexed the area in 1945 and today, it has more than 450 homes. In addition to its proximity to East Dallas amenities, it’s a seven-mile drive to downtown. So easy. It’s also got a strong sense of community and neighborliness.
Charmed curb appeal welcomes visitors, including landscaping, sitting area, and orange front door, which contrasts beautifully with the gray brick and shutters.
Inside, a bay window in the front living area overlooks the yard. This room also offers a fireplace and that wall has been partially removed to open up the floorplan to the dining room and kitchen. Smart. Love those hardwoods, too — they are everywhere in the house except the bathrooms and utility area. No carpet in sight.
The kitchen received big updates, with granite countertops, tons of white Shaker-style cabinetry, a glass-tile backsplash, breakfast bar, recessed lights, and stainless steel appliances, including a gas range.
The bedrooms have lots of natural light and bathrooms received updates.
The backyard feels huge, with tons of grassy green space for kids or four-legged kids. There’s also a privacy fence and wood deck.
Bonus: this house is zoned for Sanger Elementary, which earns an 8 out of 10 from greatschools.org and has an innovative dual-language program for students.
It was listed Aug. 17 by John Jones with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s for $350,000.
