This week’s Inwood Home of the Week presented by Inwood National Bank is a fantastic Casa Linda stone cottage that’s been smartly updated and expanded, perfect for a family looking for a spacious four bedroom in this coveted neighborhood. This four-bedroom, three and half-bath home has 3,655 square feet on an impressive 0.55-acre lot.
It’s located in White Rock Forest, a fantastic neighborhood near White Rock Lake and the Dallas Arboretum that’s sandwiched between Buckner Boulevard and the Ash Creek and Casa Linda neighborhoods. There’s a treasure trove of midcentury homes there, but this 1941-built home on Alta Mira Drive stands out for its irregular corner lot, stone craftsmanship, and an upstairs renovation you’ll love.
The large open kitchen and living areas are light and bright and flow nicely down the hall from one room to another. The modern kitchen features dark granite countertops, subway tile backsplash, two sinks, and stainless steel appliances including double ovens, built-in refrigerator/freezer, built-in microwave, dishwasher, and gas stovetop.
The butler’s pantry next to the kitchen is a notch above your typical transitional space. Sure, it’s got an undercounter wine cooler, cabinet storage, and counterspace for serving, but it’s got a warming drawer for setting out warm dishes while entertaining.
The upstairs master retreat feels crisp and modern with soaring ceilings, a fireplace, and abundance of closet space with a cedar lined closet. The bathroom has dual vanities, standalone shower, and soaking tub — a bathtub that’s far enough away from the family room that you might actually get to enjoy a full, uninterrupted soak.
The backyard has a flagstone pool, outdoor shower, and still plenty more yard for pets and children to play. Speaking of pets, the three-car garage has a custom dog wash and plentiful storage.
