Embrace The Oxymoron of a 1950s Contemporary Home Near White Rock Lake

Just because this dapper three-bedroom home on Estacado Drive was constructed in 1955 doesn’t mean it comes with an old-fashioned housewife who touches up her lipstick before that pot roast is served at 6 p.m.

Just because this dapper three-bedroom home on Estacado Drive was constructed in 1955 doesn’t mean it comes with an old-fashioned housewife who touches up her lipstick before that pot roast is served at 6 p.m.

What it does come with, though, is even better.

“I love everything about this home,” said Realtor Jenn Rice of Heather Guild Group. “The reconfigured kitchen with gorgeous granite counters, mosaic tile backsplash, and breakfast bar that opens to a roomy dining area with Sputnik-style lighting …. It’s perfect for entertaining.”

This contemporary/modern abode features an open concept layout with clean lines and sleek updates.

‘Honey, I’m Home’

Lush landscaping, raised flower beds, a large concrete patio, a fire pit, and cornhole game area laid with decomposed granite complete the “outdoor oasis” surrounding 300 Estacado, Rice said.

A hot tub adds the finishing touches on that oasis – and we’d be lying if we said a soak in warm bubbles doesn’t sound pretty great now that the Dallas winter has set in.

The three-bedroom, two-bathroom home sits on an 8,799-square-foot lot, so there’s plenty of space for kids and pets to run around. The home is listed at $365,000 – and you simply can’t beat that price for a classic like this.

Updates include energy-efficient windows, a new water heater and air conditioner, and a 40-year shingle roof.

Estacado is in the Ash Creek/Alger Park neighborhood, where the median home price is $374,000. It’s surrounded by residences and a quick hop to the Casa Linda shopping center, the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens, downtown, and “all that White Rock Lake’s myriad parks have to offer,” Rice said.

The area is zoned for Dallas ISD and is close to Reinhardt Elementary School, W.H. Gaston Middle School, and Bryan Adams High School.

This Ash Creek home is in close proximity to too many restaurants to name and is an Uber ride away from some great nightlife, including Urban Vines Wine Bistro, the Fraternal Order of Eagles Lodge, The Whistling Pig, and Goodfriend Beer Garden. 

Realtor Jenn Rice with Heather Guild Group is listing 9872 Estacado Drive, Dallas, for $365,000.
