Stunning 1970s Contemporary in Enviable North Dallas Location

Share News:

The invisible borders within the area we call “North Dallas” are many. You can live in North Dallas with Plano ISD or Richardson ISD schools, and then there are the subdivisions within the area, too, which each have their own unique character.

A great example of the diversity in location and architecture for the North Dallas area can be found in our High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans. This listing from David Griffin & Co. agent Robert Kucharski, a 1970s soft contemporary in the Peyton-Alpha Estates subdivision, is completely loaded and at a great price, too! 

The dramatic roofline goes perfectly well with the built-in cabinetry and wood accents in the gorgeous brick fireplace and hearth.
An angular clerestory window offers light and views of the mature canopy that surrounds 7138 Teakwood.

Like many contemporary homes of this age, 7138 Teakwood Drive has a dramatic roofline, tons of natural light, and lots of warm, natural finishes. This style, which took hold in Texas and beyond with the waning popularity of the ubiquitous ranch-style home, the 1970s soft contemporary offers open spaces for entertaining, larger kitchens, and a second story usually reserved for children. 

“The features that stand out most about the home are the wood-clad vaulted ceilings, four full bathrooms, views of the pool from several rooms in the home, wood floors in much of the home, built-in bookcases in several rooms, professional landscaping, and the stately over-sized fireplace and chimney,” offered Kucharski. He’s marketing this exceptionally well-preserved 1976-built soft contemporary for $539,500. 

The wet bar features beautiful stone countertops, lovely built-in cabinetry, and a wine refrigerator.
This home is truly a bibliophile’s dream. Even the dining room has a built-in bookcase.

With the level of finish-out in this home, combined with the exceptional location and the terrific floor plan, this home is a complete value. You get four full bedrooms, four full baths, a two-car garage, and 2,977 square feet in one of the best and most accessible locations in North Dallas. You’re within striking distance of 635, and Hillcrest Road is just to the west. And to top it off, you’re inside the attendance area of Spring Valley Elementary School in Richardson ISD.

“The updated, bright kitchen with great counter space includes stainless appliances and an abundance of storage, including a walk-in pantry,” Kucharski said. I love that the cabinetry hasn’t been painted — it feels so warm! Just beyond the breakfast nook is the covered patio, which looks out to the beautiful pool and lush backyard.

“The owner retreat is privately tucked away and features a large bath with triple-head shower and two walk-in closets,” Kucharski added. 

It’s not to late to take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime deal on a truly High Caliber Home! Call Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans today to get approved so you can put in an offer on this gorgeous 1970s soft contemporary!
