Funny coincidence that this week’s Inwood National Bank Home of the Week is steps away from the long-time home office of the Dallas-based banking institution that was established in 1964. It’s also walking distance to the dining, entertainment, and shopping in Inwood Village. But we really chose to feature the Bentley Place villa on Inwood Road at W. University Blvd. because of this: the rooftop patio for al fresco dining and entertaining that’s so inviting looking from inside, you’ll be pulled by its allure.


Maybe you saved this home on Zillow or saved it to your favorites on the app and forgot to come back and study it. But this 1955-built midcentury modern home on Sylvania Drive in East Dallas deserves another look because since we last featured it as Inwood National Bank’s Home of the Week three months ago, the price has come down a cool $26,000. $26K! That’s a lot of capital freed up to make this uber-cool midcentury listing by RE/MAX DFW Associates agent Jenny Capritta all your own.

This 2,753-square-foot home has three bedrooms and two baths on more than a quarter-acre in the Lake Gardens area of White Rock Lake, a neighborhood full of tall trees, winding streets with hilly topography, and an outstanding collection of original and renovated Midcentury Modern homes. As our executive editor Joanna England pointed out, this particular property offers something of a blank slate for those not afraid of taking a home to the studs and remaking it into a showplace. All the MCM pedigree is there with dramatic vaulted ceilings and a wall of windows bringing the outside in, which helps show off the period-traditional low pitched roofline.

While it’s obvious that this Midcentury Modern has had several renovations that have expanded the footprint, let’s take a look at before and after staging photos to get a better idea of how this home flows. (more…)

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.


Spring Branch Drive in White Rock Valley is one of those streets that buyers often ask their agents about, so when one of those homes goes on the market, it’s an opportunity, says White Rock Lake area expert agent Jenny Capritta, a RE/MAX DFW Associates Realtor. Her listing, our Inwood National Bank Home of the Week, is a perfect example of what White Rock Valley has to offer and is an opportunity to purchase a home with great bones that you can make your own.

First off, the location is outstanding. This 1962-built home is nestled in a coveted neighborhood with mature trees, great Richardson ISD schools, and access to the White Rock Creek Trail and White Rock Lake. White Rock Valley is also home to White Rock Stables, a 14-acre full care horse stable near Flag Pole Hill.


By the time we came back to this week’s Inwood National Bank Home of the Week listed by Mohammed Jaber of Compass RE Texas, the home at 3100 Cole Avenue, No. 214 was already under contract. That’s OK because it turned us on to a great condo complex full of well-built, updated one- and two-bedrooms homes for lease and sale that are perfect for Uptown living.

But first, let’s check out No. 214 (how perfect is that?), which Jaber has listed for $275,000. Sutton Place at 3100 Cole Avenue is a sleek urban condo complex right in the heart of Uptown, just a block off McKinney Avenue.


Jog out your front door and decide whether you want to make it a short run through the shaded trail in Lake Highlands Park steps away, or make it a longer run several blocks away with views of White Rock Lake at your side. Those are the types of decisions you’ll make with this week’s Inwood National Bank Home of the Week.
