Deep in the heart of East Dallas, in a family friendly neighborhood, find a California midcentury with a marvelous aesthetic.
Feel the mid-mod vibe at 2361 San Marcus Ave. in Casa View Haven, built in 1953, beautifully maintained, and tastefully updated. The retro re-do, our Tuesday Two Hundred, takes the best of the original features, like awning windows and refinished hardwoods, and adds on-trend styles and colors.
This home has three bedrooms, one bathrooms, and 1,150 square feet on one story. It is listed by Shelly Seltzer with Ebby Halliday Realtors and located near Gus Thomasson Road and Ferguson Road. Ready to check it out?
The curb appeal is quintessential midcentury modern with a double carport and nice-sized storage shed. The exterior is freshly painted shades of gray and white with a bright pop of color with the yellow front door. The roof is new, as is the electrical panel.
Every room is light and bright throughout the house and there are hardwood floors as well as recessed lights. The house offers a modest-sized footprint and makes the most of it with a partially open floorplan in the common areas, moving the eye naturally through the rooms.
The updated eat-in kitchen features buyer wants without sacrificing the mid-mod feel. Renovations added a breakfast bar, quartz countertops, blue clay-fired backsplash, white cabinets, and stainless steel appliances. A nearby utility closet fits a full-sized stackable washer and dryer, a big convenience.
Find chic updates in the bathroom, too, including a floating vanity and oversized sink, teal-colored walls, new lights, hex tile on the floor, and new tile in the shower. Hardwoods extend to the nearby bedrooms, which also have lots of natural light.
There’s lots of room to play in the backyard, which has a six-foot privacy fence. It’s pretty much a blank slate for the next owners.
The only downside of this property we can see is the one bathroom. That is a hard sell for a family looking for a three-bedroom. But the asking price of $229,900 just might change minds. It was listed Oct. 13 by Seltzer and won’t stay on the market long.
