If you love the laid-back vibe of Lakewood but need a little more house than what’s available traditionally, this 4,412-square-foot home on Sondra Drive in Lakewood could be a perfect fit. Matthew Edwards of Dave Perry-Miller Preston Center has the listing selected at this week’s High Caliber Home, sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans.
If you’re a close reader of CandysDirt, you might recognize this five-bedroom, four and half-bath home as one we’ve featured before, but Matthew completely restaged the home and dropped $50k off the price since we last featured it. Even more reason to fall for this house!
As you walk in the 2008-built home, the large formal dining is to the left and a paneled study with rich, coffered ceiling is to the right. Down the hall is the large open living area next to the kitchen and access to the gorgeous backyard pool and spa.
The kitchen features granite countertops and island with stainless steel appliances including oven, cooktop, warmer oven drawer, built-in refrigerator/freezer, built-in microwave, and dishwasher.
Now, if you’re a sucker for before and after-style photos like me, let’s indulge. The previous decor was lovely with electric blue pops of color, but it’s always interesting to see the same room decorated in a different way. In the latter photo, you’ll see blue gives way to elegant neutrals.
The backyard features a pool and hot tub and covered arbor with stone countertops, built-in grill, and refrigerator. Updates include Hunter Douglas blinds and plantation shutters, Sonos sound system, backyard landscaping, phantom screens, and front and rear landscape lighting.
Sondra Drive is walking distance to Dallas ISD’s top-rated Lakewood Elementary School and near Long Middle School and Woodrow Wilson High School. Of course, we don’t have to tell you how close it is to White Rock Lake and all the fabulous dining in Lakewood. See the home for yourself at an open house Sunday, Nov. 17 from 1 to 3 p.m.
