Splurge vs Steal: Two Updated, Lovely Lochwood Homes | CandyDirt.com

Lochwood is one of the great East Dallas neighborhoods, close to White Rock Lake, Dallas Arboretum, and other area charms. It is heavily treed, convenient, and offers an established neighborhood personality. 

Our Splurge vs Steal this week looks at two lovely Lochwood homes with so much to offer. Which one is your favorite? 

 

TWO-STORY CONTEMPORARY HOME WITH OVER 2,500 SQUARE FEET 

Extensive renovations over the past nine months have made the house at 10935 Wyatt St. a contemporary space with so much to offer. Renovations include a new roof, windows, flooring, paint, lighting, water heater, circular drive, and electric gate. This home has three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, one half bath, two living areas, two dining areas, and 2,549 square feet on two stories, built in 1963. 

The open living areas have hardwood floors and recessed lights. A downstairs den has a separate entrance that would easily transform to a fourth bedroom. The kitchen is new with a pantry, custom white Shaker-style cabinets, tile backsplash, island, and stainless steel Whirlpool appliances, including a gas convection range. All bedrooms are upstair and secondary bedrooms share a Jack-and-Jill bathroom. The master offers two large walk-in closets and a luxe bath with dual vanities, a separate shower, and sexy soaker tub. In back, find a new fence and expansive side yard with mature trees. The seller is building a custom carport in back that will integrate exterior details.

This home was listed April 18 by Kevin Curran with Worth Ross for $475,000.

 

ONE-STORY REMODELED LOCHWOOD HOUSE WITH ORIGINAL HARDWOODS

The house at 11326 Sinclair Ave. is light, bright, and open, completely updated with original, refinished hardwoods that gleam throughout. This home has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,476 square feet on one story, built in 1955.

Renovations included some important behind-the-scenes things, like new HVAC and water heater. The kitchen is new with a granite island, farm sink, granite buffet, custom white Shaker-style cabinetry, and high-end stainless steel appliances, highlighted with beautiful glass backsplash. Both bathrooms were completely remodeled with custom tile to the ceiling, seamless glass doors,  and custom flooring. In back, a privacy fence, mature trees, and plenty of grassy green space will make for lovely memories. 

This home was listed May 21 by Art Carrillo, broker/owner of Texas Urban Living for $349,000.
