This week’s Inwood National Bank Home of the Week is one of those homes I wish I’d found first. With four bedrooms, two and half-baths, the 2,320-square-foot midcentury modern home has a fantastic floorplan, beautiful curb appeal, and a very nice price.
The 1963-built two-story home at 2606 Beechmont Drive is listed by Jenny Capritta of Re/Max DFW Associates for $419,500. That’s $181 a square foot on nearly a quarter-acre for Casa Linda, people!
Flipping through its old MLS listings, I found one from June 2012 when it was listed for … you’re going to want to sit down for this … $169,000. Just nine years before that, it was $144,900.
The recently remodeled home has a fantastic floorplan with step-down entry, double-sided fireplace, and floating staircase look to be original to the home. Even the perfectly modern handrail is original!
Knocking out a wall in the kitchen made room for a breakfast bar and informal dining nook. Other updates include remodeled bathrooms and a large picture window that makes the curb appeal pop.
Here’s a nice bonus: the backyard has a fully irrigated turf lawn for easy maintenance and a pergola back porch that’s shaded by the house.
Beechmont is located in Crestview East, a neighborhood with a mix of traditional and midcentury homes with large mature trees.
“It’s close to White Rock Montessori, Bishop Lynch, and fantastic shopping at Casa Linda,” Capritta says. “It’s the perfect place to be with White Rock Lake and redevelopment throughout the area.”
