Claremont Renovation in East Dallas Pleases with Designer Finishes, Clean Lines

The neighborhoods of East Dallas have their own vibe and people are drawn to the area for the personality and access to White Rock Lake. We’ve found a lovely renovated midcentury-era home there with designer finishes and an open floorplan, all for under $400K. 

Our Thursday Three Hundred at 2441 Wildoak Dr. is in the Claremont neighborhood with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two dining areas, and 1,716 square feet on one story, built in 1958. It’s impressive! 

 

Claremont is north of Interstate 30 and east of the lake, a neighborhood of about 600 homes. It’s an older and more established area in East Dallas, more affordable than its neighbors like Forest Hills. You’ll find winding creeks and cute houses in a convenient location — it’s a 10-minute drive to downtown Dallas, for example. 

This house sits on almost a quarter acre near Ferguson Road and Highland Road and it’s been hugely upgraded. Recently completed foundation work has transferable warranty and there is drywall repair scheduled for the garage with shelves to be installed in laundry area. The seller will offer a $2,000 landscaping credit with an acceptable offer, so that’s a big bonus. 

Walk inside and find gleaming hardwood floors, recessed lights, and fresh paint in a neutral, light color palette. The open floorplan allows the eye to travel a far distance, from the entryway to the kitchen with gold-tone light fixtures and chandelier. 

In the kitchen, the updates include Shaker-style cabinets, a large island, contemporary light pendants, white subway tile backsplash, and new Kitchenaid stainless steel appliances, including a gas range. 

The bathroom upgrades are fabulous, from marble tile and Kohler fixtures to the patterned cement tile and frameless glass. 

Other improvements include new windows, electrical upgrades, fence, and a new garage door. 

This home was listed Jan. 18 by Marnie McCabe with Fine Homes Nathan Grace for $379,500.
