Alger Park

It’s not always easy to find a move-in ready home near White Rock Lake for a sensible price point, but this week’s Tuesday Two Hundred is a charming Midcentury Cottage in Alger Park that has been thoroughly updated, and comes with bonus square footage.

The two-bedroom, one bath home has 1,020 square feet of living space, and has been meticulously cared for, according to listing agent Leslie Donovan of Giordano, Wegman, Walsh and Associates.

The open (for 1950s architecture, that is) floor plan provides easy flow from the living room to the dining space and then to the kitchen. Living spaces have been updated throughout the home, including the gorgeous u-shaped kitchen and the nicely-appointed bathroom with beautiful tilework in the standup shower.

With plenty of windows and hardwood floors throughout, the home is bright and airy, too.

Outside, a large backyard provides plenty of space for gardening, entertaining, or even possibly a chicken coop. There is also a studio in the back that adds an additional 325 square feet of flexible space. It’s been used as an art studio, workshop, and even a yoga studio.

And the home’s proximity to White Rock Lake is also a boon, since it’s a quick bike ride to the lake, the Dallas Arboretum, and even Casa Linda Shopping Center. It’s also benefiting from easy access to bike trails that lead to all kinds of spots all over the city.

“This neighborhood is an urban haven, heavily treed and quiet yet conveniently located near all of the weekend hot spots that east Dallas has to offer,” Donovan said.

The Alger Park home is listed for $279,000. Want to see more pictures? Click here.
