Striking Alger Park Remodel Bats a Thousand Close to White Rock Lake

Share News:

Established in the early 1950s, Alger Park is a small East Dallas neighborhood with big appeal, just minutes from the eastern shores of White Rock Lake. We’ve found a remodeled midcentury house there that impresses with its sleek style and designer aesthetic. 

“What’s really nice is the light and the open feel it has to it,” said listing agent Eve Holder with Keller Williams Realty Dallas Preston Road. “There’s also a midcentury flair, which is so appealing to buyers of all ages.” 

Our Thursday Three Hundred at 9739 Cloister Dr. is located in Alger Park on a quiet street near Peavy and Garland roads. Curb appeal is just the beginning — inside, you’ll find hardwood floors, oversized windows, an open floorplan, and custom touches. The low-E windows and roof are new, too. This home has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living areas, and 2,141 square feet on one story, built in 1950. 

Mature trees, landscaping, a cedar-wrapped porch column, and a contemporary front door in a fetching seafoam green create great curb appeal. 

Inside, walk across the threshold to the front living area, which is open to the kitchen and dining area. Hardwoods and recessed lights look great and the flow is natural between the spaces. A second living area off the kitchen is carpeted and would make a perfect playroom or game room. 

In the kitchen, there are custom cabinets, quartz countertops, an island with breakfast bar, and new stainless steel appliances, including a gas range. So much cabinet space! 

The master bedroom has hardwoods and room for sitting area and oversized furniture. Its ensuite bath features a new walk-in shower with frameless glass door and designer tile treatment, as well as quartz countertops and dual sinks on a new vanity. 

An attached two-car garage offers lots of storage in addition to parking. In back, there is plenty of space for playing and entertaining. 

This home was listed Aug. 12 for $395,000.
