Maybe we’ve got Easter Sunday on our minds, but this mid-century gem across from Bishop Lynch High School in East Dallas has so many updates for this price range, it’s heaven-sent. This 1956-built home at 1805 Swan Drive has three bedrooms, two baths, and 1,640-square-feet full of bright, open floorplan space that perfectly highlights the original and refinished hardwood floors, listing agent Sejal Bogdon of Central Metro Realty tells us. Actually, it’s the agent’s own home that she and her husband have lovingly restored since moving into the Crest View Park neighborhood a few years ago. (more…)

You don’t normally find such high-end paint finishes inside a home this price range, but 9519 Springwater Drive in highly-touted Casa Linda Forest is a local painter’s treasured home full of labor and love. And potential buyers noticed. Listing agent Kim Anderson of Ebby Halliday Realtors-Coit says inquiries came pouring in as soon as she listed the 2,375-square-foot, four-bedroom home for $350,000 that’s now listed as pending. It’s a 1965-built U-shaped Ranch with a dramatic entrance you just have to see.

Richardson Heights

Certain neighborhoods tend to pop up frequently for CandysDirt’s Thursday Three Hundred round-up: northeast Dallas, Lake Highlands, and Richardson. But since I took the reins of this weekly feature a few months ago, I’d forgotten just how special the mid-century homes were in the popular Richardson Heights neighborhood near Arapaho and Floyd Road until a reader alerted us to his home new on the market.

This large corner lot home at 824 Times Street in Grand Prairie has only been on the market for a few days and probably won’t last long.

Herman of Keller Williams Dallas Preston Road for $300,000.

Fresh paint, new floors, and new quartz countertops are among the many updates installed in 2018.  Just past the wrought-iron railed staircase is one of two dining areas that are welcoming and accessible in this open floor plan. The living area has vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors, and an expansive view of the breakfast room and kitchen. (more…)

For this week’s Thursday Three Hundred, we’re in the Woodbridge neighborhood in northeast Dallas for a beautiful 1980-built four-bedroom, three-bath contemporary home listed by Brian Weast of Keller Williams Rockwall. This 2,831-square-foot home located at 12132 Larchgate Drive is listed for $335,000, a pretty tidy savings since it was first listed at $380,000 and great value for other similarly-sized and located homes in the neighborhood.
