Don Draper would be proud to call our Thursday Three Hundred home, with its swanky design, sleek lines, and complete renovations.

Located at 2202 Forest Oaks Drive near Ferguson Road and Lakeland Drive in the Forest Oaks neighborhood, this East Dallas midcentury impresses with elevated design. Updates created an open floorplan, added new doors and windows, and brought in even more natural light, while keeping original hardwoods. 

This home has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,928 square feet on one story, built in 1955. There’s an open house this Saturday, Sept. 23, from 12 to 3 p.m. Want a sneak peek?

This East Dallas location is hard to beat, just 1.2 miles to White Rock Lake and a short drive to downtown Dallas. 

The carport in front is quintessential MCM design, and the exterior siding is updated with fresh paint. There’s also a new roof, new HVAC system with ducting, new electric system and panel, and a new water heater. 

Inside, the front living room wows with its creamy color palette, floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and surround, brick wall, clerestory windows, and beamed ceiling. Normally, I would not be a fan of large format taupe tile in a front living area, but it works here with the color scheme and will provide low-maintenance upkeep. 

Walk up a few steps into the kitchen, a gorgeous space with a large center island, quartz countertops, custom white Shaker-style cabinets, a contemporary backsplash, and stainless steel appliances. The original hardwoods run through this area and the dining room — updates created an open floorplan for this area. 

All three bedrooms also have the beautiful hardwoods and both bathrooms are beautifully remodeled with hands-free flushing toilet, contemporary tile treatment, new fixtures, and more. There’s also a renovate walk-in laundry room.

In back, there’s a covered patio and plenty of covered parking with two-car detached garage.

This East Dallas midcentury modern was listed Sept. 19 by Carrie Harmon with Changing Hands Realty for $379,900.
