If your heart is yearning for a fabulous real estate find in this new year, we’ve found an affordable blue beauty deep in the heart of East Dallas. 

Our Tuesday Two Hundred, located at 10208 San Lorenzo Dr., sits pretty with a new facade color — cobalt blue — and some other appealing updates inside and out. This Casa View Oaks house has three bedrooms, one bathroom, and 1,430 square feet on one story, built in 1953.

Located near Gus Thomasson and Ferguson roads just a hop, skip, and jump East of White Rock Lake, this midcentury modern offers arresting curb appeal. The blue-painted brick might not appeal to everyone, but that’s why it stands out. The cedar privacy wall creates a small atrium and a modern feel, as do the new house numbers.  

Inside, the owners have opened up the floorplan, something high on the wish list for a lot of buyers. Those hardwood floors are refinished to shine, and they’ve added recessed LED lighting. Above the new contemporary gas fireplace, they’ve recessed the wall to create a TV nook, and placed another nook to the right. 

The kitchen is a total renovation and now it features new white Shaker-style cabinets, quartz countertops, white subway tile backsplash, and stainless steel appliances, including a gas range. 

The hardwoods extend into the three bedrooms and the bathrooms are updated with new bath tile and vanities. Nice. 

The backyard, accessible through four French doors and windows by the kitchen, is a surprise. A new and good-sized wood deck impresses and the cedar privacy fence is new, too. There are mature trees and some landscaping, as well. 

This home was listed Dec. 27, 2017, by Matthew Simmons with Clay Stapp + Co. for $286,000.

  • Would have been nice to turn that kitchen sink and window toward a view of the backyard instead of looking at the nearby neighbor. I know it would have cost more, but the reconfiguration of cabinet layout might have been worth it.

    I think the jarring cobalt blue isn’t doing the buyer pool – or neighborhood — any favors, but maybe someone will come along and repaint anyway once they purchase.

  • Really appreciate the range of listings that I’m seeing on Candysdirt. Good work. There’s something for you and me. Even though I’m not in the market now after closing on my first house in 2017, your listings give me interior decorating ideas. And landscaping ideas too. Thanks.
