9729 Van Dyke Front

As an East Dallas resident, I’m fond of walking around White Rock Lake and some of the nearby neighborhoods. Most people, though, expect that a home with a lake view has to be on Lawther or in Lakewood. Not so! There are plenty of beautiful homes in Lake Highlands that have great views. Some of them are on Peavy, and others are on a street called Van Dyke, which sits perpendicular to Peavy Road, starting near Buckner Boulevard. This street has so many fabulous properties on it, but this one always caught my eye.

From the outside, this 1959 modern home looks like a glassed-in pagoda, with wooden crossbeams and smokey panes. But what will you find once you cross that bridge and enter this one-of-a-kind home? More than 5,700 square feet of colorful contemporary design that will awaken your imagination.
