In Lakewood, the closer you get to White Rock Lake the more it will cost you. The area is a hotspot for those who want to stay active outdoors. Plus, it offers a tight-knit community feel, especially in the fall where porch pumpkins make their debut and everyone gears up for some Texas-size trick-or-treating. And with that comes a premium. But do not fret! We found two Lakewood gems that are sure to impress, each with feasible price points too. Take your pick in this week’s Splurge vs. Steal.
Splurge: Beautiful Lakewood Bungalow With Quartz Kitchen and Massive Deck For $699.9K
Oh the wonders of Wildgrove! This darling pocket area of historic homes in Lakewood affords proximity to White Rock Lake and is set amidst rolling topography for a one-of-a-kind look and feel. Built in 1926, our three-bedroom, three-bathroom splurge has been thoughtfully updated. It comes complete with a sleek quartz kitchen featuring top-of-the-line appliances, a gas range, wine fridge, and farm sink. Plus, you’ll enjoy newly renovated baths.
What really catches our eye? The bones! It’s a relatively blank canvas, spanning a light-filled 2,219 square feet. There are gorgeous hardwoods and moldings, a bay window, and fireplace, and a flexible layout that can transform to suit your needs.
Yet, even with all that, the main attraction is the massive outdoor deck for entertaining! The kids will also love the basketball hoop and plenty of grassy lawn to run and play. An attached garage, covered carport, and full-size laundry closet round out this exceptional Lakewood offering.

Steal: Timeless Tudor With Designer Upgrades Galore For $599.5K
Now onto our steal. This one’s a real beauty along Lakeshore Drive, just minutes from Whole Foods and Lakewood Shopping Center. It’s close to White Rock Lake as well, and affords all the charms of Lakewood living. The listing says it’s as turnkey as it gets – and we couldn’t agree more! For starters, the two-bedroom, two-bathroom Tudor is in the heart of the neighborhood and boasts a fabulous 2018 remodel.
This means you’ll enjoy new windows, doors, trim, and paint, met by designer fixtures and finishes for a move-in ready gem that is a total steal. There are stunning hardwoods, a gracious open living area, chef’s kitchen with all the bells and whistles, and even a new driveway and garage with bonus attic storage.
Of course, being within minutes of Lakewood Elementary doesn’t hurt either. Outside, it’s all about that view from the covered patio. What a steal!
