Lakewood rarely fails to delight when we’re talking about location. With White Rock Lake, the fun of East Dallas, fabulous neighborhoods, and proximity to downtown, what’s not to love?
But with that love comes a price tag. So today, I’ve found two great houses in Lakewood for well under a million dollars each. They’re move-in ready, but with flexible floorplans that could be expanded or reconfigured, too.
Both of these properties are walking distance to the coveted Lakewood Elementary, beloved in the community by parents and students alike. The blue-ribbon school is in the process of completing a long-planned 52,500-square-foot addition with lots of natural light and state-of-the-art technologies. This will serve roughly 1,000 students, almost double the previous amount. It’s just another reason people flock to Lakewood when they’re buying.
So let’s see these two houses, shall we?
CORNER LOT CUTIE WITH ALMOST 3,000 SQUARE FEET, THREE LIVING AREAS
Whether you are looking for a move-in ready home or one you can remodel to make your own, this house is for you! Located at 6905 Southridge Dr. in Lakewood, this home has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, three living areas, and 2,784 square feet on one story, built in 1950. The current floorplan could easily be reconfigured or expanded for the next homeowner. For example, with an updated kitchen located behind the dining room wall, it would be easy to make it open concept in the common areas. Other options: A sitting area could be converted to a fourth bedroom and the house is perfect for a “pop-top” addition. This could be a lot of fun!
Sitting on a quarter-acre corner lot, this house has more backyard than you’ll find in any other home for under a million dollars in Lakewood. With so much of it, you could add a garage-mudroom without sacrificing the play space; plus there is plenty of room to add a pool! This house is less than a mile west of White Rock Lake and a 9-minute walk to Lakewood Elementary.
This home is listed by The Heather Guild Group with Dave Perry-Miller and Associates for $789,000 and will be open Sunday, April 22, from 3:30 to 5 p.m. For more information or to schedule a private showing, call Heather Guild at 214-563-2385.
CHEERFUL HOME WITH OVER 3,200 SQUARE FEET AND FLEXIBLE FLOORPLAN
Less than one mile away from the house above and on one of the best blocks in Lakewood, the charmed home at 7006 Westlake Ave. has cottage good-looks. But don’t let that fool you! This home has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, three living areas, two dining areas, a bonus room, and 3,234 square feet on two stories, built in 1935.
This home has been updated with a lot of designer touches and it offers a circular floorplan that’s excellent for entertaining. The renovated kitchen features white cabinets, granite countertops, gas range, double ovens, and a warming drawer. The walls could be reconfigured to make this an open floorplan, too. You’ll love the first-floor master with its huge bathroom and walk-in closet. Additional bedrooms and a playroom are on the second floor. This house is 0.8 miles from the west shores of White Rock Lake and a 13-minute walk to Lakewood Elementary.
This home is listed by The Heather Guild Group with Dave Perry-Miller and Associates for $850,000 and will be open Sunday, April 22, from 2 to 4 p.m. For more information or to schedule a private showing, call Heather Guild at 214-563-2385.
