It’s hard for me to believe how increasingly popular Far East Dallas has become. When my husband and I bought our home in Casa View back in 2007, the area was mostly rentals and a few families scattered here and there, with a lot of homes falling behind on repairs due to elderly neighbors. In many cases, the homes we were shown by our agent fit into one of two categories: they were either complete single-owner time capsules with faded wallpaper and pock-marked Formica countertops or they were overly worn rentals with a random amalgamation of hodge-podge “updates.”
In today’s market, Far East Dallas is shining bright, with some great houses that have received love and attention over the past decade, and with many more areas farther east looking more and more attractive. That’s my impression of our Inwood National Bank Home of the Week. This Spanish Revival-style Ranch is in move-in ready shape, complete with a garage conversion and two shaded patios in the backyard.
“The home is in immaculate condition and has a great layout,” said listing agent and broker Delia Sifuentes. And it’s priced perfectly for a family, too!
Built in 1980, this home has seen a few updates over the years. Low-maintenance finishes are perfect for families, especially the tile floors and wainscoting. While this home has more than 1,700 square feet, all of the bedrooms feel immense. As it is now, the master suite is in the converted garage, but it could also be a second living room, home office, den, or media room. You also get plenty of storage space. In all, there are four bedrooms and two full baths, as well as two dining areas.
The galley kitchen has recent cabinetry and granite counters, as well as stainless steel appliances and a breakfast bar. A patio door opens to the backyard just off the breakfast nook, which is sizable.
The bedrooms, as you can see from this view of the master, are huge. His-and-hers walk-in closets are an added bonus.
But the shaded backyard is what families will fall in love with. The privacy fence is perfect, and with two covered patios, there’s plenty of room to hang out without getting too much sun.
Broker Delia Sifuentes has listed 2946 Tres Logos Ln in Far Northeast Dallas for $220,000, making it fair games for families or investors.
