MCM in Keistwood

For this week’s Thursday 300, we’ve got a 1958-built Arch B. Swank-designed midcentury modern gem at 3454 S. Franklin Street in Keistwood that’s listed by Diane Sherman of David Griffin & Company for only $392,000. Now typically, we do the heavy lifting in describing a home’s features and indiscernible qualities, but Diane gave us such a venerable wealth of knowledge about this amazing MCM in Keistwood that we’ll give you the scoop in her words.

mid-century capsule

Fix yourself a cocktail at the smoked glass bar and come take a look at this part-time capsule, part-updated home in the heart of Irving listed by Blaine Soileau of Dallas City Center Realtors for this week’s Thursday 300.

Working on last week’s Suburb Sunday featuring Irving, I came across this stunning mid-century style home at 309 San Mateo Court that is fabulously priced at $398,000. This 3,168 square-foot four-bedroom, two and half-bath home has a striking front entrance with amazing angles that hint at its unique inside. I debated between featuring this and another MCM home, and went with the latter, but someone has jumped at the chance for this 1967-built home in Irving’s University Hills because it’s now listed as pending.

Located in the shadow of Sunset High School in Kessler Plaza, the updated bungalow at 2703 Alco Avenue has a funky little outside and a lotta fresh inside. The 1,703-square-foot three-bedroom, two-bath is listed for $375,000 by Kayaneh Wood and Brian Davis of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International. The homeowner Sabrina Combs gave us the scoop about the before and after details in this 1967-built home. (more…)

This 80s soft contemporary at 2524 Ellis Court in Plano’s River Bend neighborhood will probably be under contract by the time I press publish on this Thursday Three Hundred post. That’s just how hot this four-bedroom, three-bath home has been, listed for $319,900 by Von Truong of Re/Max Premier Properties. Listed just six days ago, Truong says she’s had approximately 60 showings for the house that seems to be popular with both east- and west-coast transplants. (more…)

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. The 1961-built home at 629 Stardust Lane is a darling three bedroom, two bath, and one half-bath gem with 2,047 square feet. It’s listed for $375,000 by Ric Shanahan of Keller Williams Urban Dallas.
