Investors have their eye on the Casa View neighborhood in East Dallas and one company is making its mark with sleek, elegant interiors that look marvelous.
Our Tuesday Two Hundred at 2212 Tealford Dr. is an example of the work of KevCo Investments LLC. They flipped another house 1.5 miles from here earlier this year and it sold in five days. This house has a similar aesthetic and we expect to see it fly off the market, too.
“This was a complete gut and remodel — we took it all the way down [to the studs], opened up the rooms, and gave it modern colors and clean lines,” said listing agent Kevin Vowell with Infinity Residential Real Estate. “It was in bad shape before and we had to have a city inspection to even start.”
It is now better than new, with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,156 square feet on one story, built in 1952.
Casa View is a large neighborhood in East Dallas that peaks at Garland Road and LBJ Freeway and goes south to Eastfield College. With ready access to White Rock Lake and proximity to major thoroughfares, living here is enjoyable and easy. Home prices are much more affordable than other East Dallas neighborhoods, like Little Forest Hills or Lakewood, so investors are moving in to update older houses.
The curb appeal of this property is head-turning, with new gray siding, wood accents, and a bright yellow front door. Low maintenance landscaping promises painless upkeep.
Inside, original refinished hardwood floors reflect light from new low-E windows and recessed lights and the color palette is crisp and bright. The front living room flows to a dining area and into the kitchen, where large-format porcelain tile has a concrete look. White quartz countertops contain flakes of mirror for a dash of glam and gray cabinets are a stylish choice. Simple white subway tile is the perfect backsplash and this choice is repeated in the bathrooms, as are the quartz countertops.
All three bedrooms have hardwoods and the master’s walk-in closet is an unexpected delight. Its ensuite bathroom features a floating vanity with a Scandinavian feel and a tub/shower combo. The secondary bathroom is similar in style and both have new plumbing fixtures and lighting.
In back, the fenced backyard is a clean slate ready for new owners to make their mark.
This home was listed Sept. 12 for $215,000.
