Of all the neighborhoods that dot the landscape surrounding White Rock Lake, Eastwood Estates is definitely one of our favorites. It’s also a favorite of Jenny Capritta, a RE/MAX DFW Associates Realtor and White Rock Lake area expert agent.

The reason? “Location, location, location,” she said. And her listing, our Inwood National Bank Home of the Week, is a perfect example of what Eastwood Estates has to offer.

First and foremost, buyers will adore the view from the front porch and picture windows of 10411 Sinclair Ave., which is one of a select number of homes that faces a beautifully lush creekside greenbelt, Capritta said.

At this 1955 Eastwood Estates stunner you get a lot of bang for your buck, and a backyard oasis to boot! Ideally nestled on a heavily treed quarter-acre lot sits this three-bedroom, three-full-bathroom midcentury gem boasting gorgeous hardwood floors, a giant open-concept kitchen, plus two inviting living areas, and yes, it even has a garage. The asking price? Just $450,000. Are you thinking what we’re thinking? Better call to book that showing before “not you” makes it their home.

Now, I may or may not have selected this house solely for its front door and crossed my fingers that the inside measured up. Spoiler alert: it does. In general, the drive-up at 10465 Sinclair Avenue delivers all the charm you’d expect to find in this East Dallas neighborhood, with a fresh face. And seriously, that front door is aces! Two enthusiastic thumbs up.

I love a studs-up renovation that brings a home into the present while preserving its original exterior appeal, and this Eastwood Estates ranch certainly fits the bill. Top to bottom, it’s a gorgeous remodel. But it’s all those unglamorous updates that put it over the top as an exceptional buy. With new roof, rain gutters, electrical wiring, a tankless hot water, updated sewer line, two HVAC units, and low-E windows, the only relic of the 1960s here is the charm. Listed at $649,900 by Coldwell Banker’s Tobin Hartman, it offers four bedrooms and two and one half bathrooms in a whopping 3,056 square feet – all with a clean, sharp design. Hop on over to see what makes this gem an entertainer’s dream.

What a fantastic opportunity to buy a Ju-Nel home! This 1960 ranch, designed by Lyle Rowley and Jack Wilson, is another one of those fantastic specimens that looks amazing after a remodel. We featured another amazing Ju-Nel home in this neighborhood, Eastwood Estates, and while that one was modern with a transitional spin, this updated home is all contemporary. It’s inside the acclaimed Hexter Elementary attendance area, just down East Lake Highlands Drive from White Rock Lake, and close to great shopping at Casa Linda Plaza.

This is one of those homes that, when you see it, you have to have it. With a great location, unbelievable upgrades, and a beautiful backyard, it will truly inspire you to grab your checkbook and get a contract in! Don’t let financing be the stumbling block between you and your dream home. Call Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans today.

10421 Silverock Front

When some people buy midcentury modern homes, they tend to keep all the things they love about them — the windows, the stone accents, the woodwork — and ditch everything they don’t — kitchens and bathrooms. But there are those homeowners who instead embrace the details and workmanship in these houses. They preserve pretty much everything in them, not just the things that are popular.

10421 Silverock Living

That’s what Adam and Ashlie McGill have done. The only room in 10421 Silverock that they have completely gutted and redone is the master bathroom, and hey, I can understand wanting a retreat, especially one with a walk-in, glass-enclosed shower. In this case, I’m sure the Daltile Gods won’t be offended at the loss of this one bath, especially since there are two more perfectly preserved full baths for you to admire.

10421 Silverock Dining

Let’s talk stats: This Eastwood Estates home has four bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, 2,583 square feet, and a fantastic family room that you will just die for. This neighborhood is an enclave bound by the creek side of East Lake Highlands, Peavy Road, and Easton Road, and feeds into award-winning Hexter Elementary School.

10421 Silverock Kitchen

These stats and the rad wallpaper in the half bath are reason enough to pay full price for this home, which is marketed at $399,000 by Donald Wright of Gilchrist & Company. Besides that, you’ll have to negotiate all of the cool furniture and art in, too. Especially that Chihuly (-esque?) glass sculpture in the living room, which perfectly accents the high ceilings.

10421 Silverock Family

The home is on a corner lot, so there’s plenty of front yard space and I can say from experience that there’s very little through traffic in this neighborhood. However, the backyard is small, and if you dream of a midcentury modern with a pool, well, you’ll have to keep dreaming.
