A Midcentury Gem Near White Rock Lake Is Perfect Starter Home

Share News:

This week’s Inwood National Bank home of the week is an adorable midcentury-built home in Lochwood near White Rock Lake. Listing agent Jenny Capritta of REMAX DFW Associates has newly listed 11805 Donore Lane in Dallas for $389,000. Let’s take a look inside.

The three-bedroom, two-bath home with 1,929 square feet is nestled on a large corner lot with a rolling slope that puts the home on a pedestal. White brick and orange painted shutters and porch balisters are the surprising pops of color that remind you this home was built in 1960, when you would have found an orange couch and an avocado green refrigerator inside. However, the interior of this home has been updated with modern, open style that still feels germaine to the home and not like a stark contemporary interior that you’d forget you’re in a 60s-era home.

Gleaming hardwood floors and freshly painted walls are some of the updates to make this cozy home move-in ready. Capritta says it’s a great value with two living areas, two dining areas, an updated kitchen with stainless appliances, a renovated master bath, and a new hall bath vanity. That’s actually a lot of house for a less than 2,0000 square foot home, which makes this a perfect starter home for a growing family. Especially one that enjoys the outdoors and would appreciate the proximity to White Rock Lake.

The backyard is pretty special with a large covered patio made of corrogated steel, which gives a funky vibe but practical use for its ability to let in some filtered light. The home has a full irrigation system and a whole home water filtration system, which is a pretty nice investment already done if you were you install one yourself.

The home at 11805 Donore Lane in Dallas is listed by Jenny Capritta for $389,000.
