If you’re looking to buy a Dallas house for under $300K, they tend to be on the smaller side. But every once in a while, you find a happy surprise. 

Our Tuesday Two Hundred is one of them. The East Dallas house at 10918 Shiloh Rd. has five bedrooms, three full bathrooms, one half bath, and 3,017 square feet on two stories, built in 1959. The roof and siding have been replaced, HVAC updated, front porch added, and there are new windows, floors, and paint. The curb appeal is cute as can be, the kitchen and baths are great, and the price has been reduced from $294,900 to $245,000. 

Did we mention it has over 3,000 square feet?!? 


Reimagined Lochwood Home Allures with Greenbelt Location, Updated Kitchen-Baths | CandysDirt.com

If you’re looking for an East Dallas neighborhood that sits at the intersection of urban and outdoorsy, Lochwood is your ticket. Houses here fly on and off the market for a reason: people love the neighborhood! 

Lochwood is situated a few miles east of White Rock Lake, about a 15-minute drive from downtown and a hop, skip, and jump to LBJ Freeway. So why is the area so beloved? Think lush greenbelts, arching shade trees, a variety of wildlife, wooded areas, hiking trails, and creeks. And don’t forget the 12.3-acre neighborhood park with two tennis courts, a basketball court, picnic tables, baseball diamond, trails, swimming pool, and a new playground. There’s also proximity to the lake, Dallas Arboretum, and a host of restaurants and bars.

Splurge vs. Steal: Two Caruth Terrace Homes | CandysDirt.com

Caruth Terrace is an East Dallas neighborhood on the rise. Houses there tend to go under contract fast, and some of the midcentury homes there are getting flipped or torn down for new builds. 

Situated west of White Rock Lake, Caruth Terrace is bounded by Skillman Street on the west, the Dallas Area Rapid Transit light rail Blue Line on the north, Abrams Road on the east, and Mockingbird Lane on the south. Talk about a great location.

Feel the Magic of this Claremont Renovation that Turned Dumpy to Delightful | CandysDirt.com

We’ve long been fans of Barton-Graham Home & Design Firm, a dynamic duo specializing in East Dallas renovations. In their latest project, they don’t disappoint. 

The house at 8071 Claremont Dr. is our Thursday Three Hundred, a massive transformation by Casey Barton and Raymond E. Graham. The pair have been renovating and selling houses together for 10 years with their design company, getting better with every flip. 

They specialize in finding diamonds in the rough, and this house was no exception. 

“This was not a sellable property before — it had a 750-square-foot addition that we torn down because it was really bad with different height rooflines and flooring, all very poorly done,” Barton said. “But we knew this house had a lot of potential.” 

They started work one year ago and put the home on the market Oct. 31. It has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living areas, and 1,971 square feet on one story, built in 1957. Let’s see the place now.
