Lake Gardens homeNestled in East Dallas near Peavy Road and E. Lake Highland Drive is a cute cottage with tons of curb appeal and interior updates. Our Tuesday Two Hundred is a 2-2 with 1,316 square feet and an open floorplan that makes the most of the space.

The home at 10115 Gateway Ln. was built in 1955, and in addition to being beautifully maintained, has been renovated to include tons of amenities, like a kitchen with stainless steel appliances, Corian countertops, a Jenn-Air gas range, breakfast bar, and walk-in pantry.

It was listed Oct. 22 by Patricia Tafoya Valenzuela with Century 21 Judge Fite Co. for $289,900.

Eastwood house

For today’s Tuesday Two Hundred, we’re venturing to the East Dallas neighborhood of Eastwood. The house at 8917 Sweetwater Dr. just hit the market last week and is simply lovely, from its well-imagined floorplan and thoughtful details like built-ins, to totally renovated kitchen and bathrooms and towering shade trees on the lot.

This 1962 ranch was just listed last week and went under contract within days—one look inside and you’ll see why. The neighborhood is also a big selling point: Eastwood is minutes southeast of White Rock Lake, near the Claremont area. (There’s a better-known neighborhood nearby also called Eastwood, which is roughly bounded by East Lake Highlands, Peavy, Garland Road, and Easton. Not that same area as this one.)

This Eastwood house is close to St. Francis Park, Lakeland Hills Park, Ferguson Park, and Casa Linda Park, and two miles from the Dallas Arboretum and the east shore of White Rock Lake.

It’s a three bedroom, 2.5 bathroom house with 1,986 square feet, listed by Patricia Sterling at The Michael Group Real Estate for $265,000.
