Established in the early 1950s, Alger Park is a small East Dallas neighborhood with big appeal, just minutes from the eastern shores of White Rock Lake. We’ve found a remodeled midcentury house there that impresses with its sleek style and designer aesthetic. 

“What’s really nice is the light and the open feel it has to it,” said listing agent Eve Holder with Keller Williams Realty Dallas Preston Road. “There’s also a midcentury flair, which is so appealing to buyers of all ages.” 

Our Thursday Three Hundred at 9739 Cloister Dr. is located in Alger Park on a quiet street near Peavy and Garland roads. Curb appeal is just the beginning — inside, you’ll find hardwood floors, oversized windows, an open floorplan, and custom touches. The low-E windows and roof are new, too. This home has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living areas, and 2,141 square feet on one story, built in 1950.
