Memories and Modern Amenities Fill This East Dallas Ranch

East Dallas RanchRemember when you were a kid and you’d go to visit your grandparents’ and it was always 15 degrees warmer inside, but it was so cozy and quaint and life was just better there? Like those people never had to go to school or work and you thought, “How do I get this gig?” Well, Squirt, you can’t get that gig until you retire, so keep working, nose to the grindstone and all that jazz.

In the meantime, if you want to live in a house like that – cozy and comfortable, with or without the furnace on blast – check out 10633 Cayuga Drive. See? Even the address is quaint. Three and five numbered addresses are the best. Four digits are so lame. JK JK, everything’s great and awesome and we all get a gold star.

It’s really the exterior of 10633 Cayuga Drive that gets you, and immediately kicks off the craving for hard candy from an etched glass dish.

Walk the few steps up to that perfect apple green door and the Nostalgia Roadshow ends there. The inside of this sweet little Ranch-style house is completely updated throughout.

The kitchen features white subway tile, a huge farmhouse sink and custom cabinetry with modern brass handles. The light colors in the kitchen paired with stainless steel appliances bring a brightness to the space, and the plank wood flooring is like a chef’s kiss – perfection.

Moving on to the master, wood flooring (HOORAY), custom blinds and clever wall sconces all make the room crisp and clean and move-in ready. Put some pictures on the wall and then treat yourself to a Topo or Bubly, or whatever’s trending these days. Maybe alcohol, but WE DON’T KNOW YOUR AGE.

Do you love a modern bathroom? Because you’re about to. BAM. Look at that tile and the same beautiful cabinetry from the kitchen, plus the perfect modern mirror as a finishing touch. A hanging mirror is such a great way to customize the space.

Up next, our dear friend shiplap. We knew it’d make an appearance and here it is in the laundry room. LOVE a laundry room. Could you hang a bar over the washer and dryer for your hang-drys? You absolutely could. Every detail of this house is very thought-through. Including the PENNY TILE on the laundry room floor. SO GREAT.

As you head out back, you can revive that longing for your grandparents with a game of Red Rover or Freeze Tag or whatever you’re feeling because the backyard is HUGE. There’s a custom wood deck and a fire pit. If the 1,096 square feet of home leave you wanting more, add an office out back or a guest house or an Airbnb because at this price point, you really have some wiggle room for a Phase 2.

Jason Castro with Coldwell Banker Residential has listed this three-bedroom, two-bathroom East Dallas home at 10633 Cayuga Drive for $210,000.
