Now, I may or may not have selected this house solely for its front door and crossed my fingers that the inside measured up. Spoiler alert: it does. In general, the drive-up at 10465 Sinclair Avenue delivers all the charm you’d expect to find in this East Dallas neighborhood, with a fresh face. And seriously, that front door is aces! Two enthusiastic thumbs up.
I love a studs-up renovation that brings a home into the present while preserving its original exterior appeal, and this Eastwood Estates ranch certainly fits the bill. Top to bottom, it’s a gorgeous remodel. But it’s all those unglamorous updates that put it over the top as an exceptional buy. With new roof, rain gutters, electrical wiring, a tankless hot water, updated sewer line, two HVAC units, and low-E windows, the only relic of the 1960s here is the charm. Listed at $649,900 by Coldwell Banker’s Tobin Hartman, it offers four bedrooms and two and one half bathrooms in a whopping 3,056 square feet – all with a clean, sharp design. Hop on over to see what makes this gem an entertainer’s dream.
Large and In Charge
For starters, this open-concept living/dining area is yuuuuuuge. You’ll be hosting the family Christmas at your place for the foreseeable future with this much acreage. It’s a paradise for the party-lover. The second living space clocks in at 1,000 square feet all on its own — and bonus! — it can be closed off with four large double-paned sliding doors. You know, for those holiday parties that get a bit … rowdy.
Tucked back in there behind those French doors near the entry, you’ll find a dedicated home office – a must have, in my book. It’s bright and positioned perfectly, I think, to stay separate from the noise of the home.
The kitchen might be a little small for the scope of the house, but it’s well done and really fetching. With stainless everything, quartz counter tops, and a generous pantry, it checks every box on my wants list.
I dig the fireplace in the living room. Overall, the materials choices in this renovation come across as well thought out. Side note: we’re a TV family, so I confess I immediately wondered where, in this space, a TV might belong. I’m not sure there’s an optimal place. But then there’s the second living room. And there’s no shortage of options in there for entertainment set-up.
Room of Requirement
Here’s another shot of that enormous second living space. There’s really no end to what could be done in such a flexible, open space. Pool table, perhaps?
The master bedroom is bright and beautiful and provides private access to the backyard pool. The attached bath is perfection, with double vanity and a gorgeous shower/tub enclosure – all done in a cool, pretty palette. That tub, though. Wow.
Naturally, the rest of the bedrooms and bathrooms turned out equally nice.
Finally, in the backyard, a privacy fence lines the perimeter and it appears either new or very well kept up. A pool and spa round things out nicely in this entertainer’s dream house. Want more? Visit one of the open houses this weekend for a full tour!
