Dallas Midcentury

Our spring days are warming up in North Texas, the perfect time to dream of lazy days lounging in the sunshine.

Today’s Tuesday Two Hundred is a gem in Northwest Dallas, a retro updated ranch at 3251 Royal Ln., just east of Webb Chapel Lane in the Webster Grove neighborhood. With its carefully curated midcentury look and bright blue swimming pool in back, it’s got the feel of a Palm Springs oasis. The house is newly listed by Brandon Stewart at David Griffin & Company for $272,900.

Built in 1959, this Dallas midcentury draws inspiration from the contemporary developments built by Joseph Eichler in California in the 1950s. At 2,249 square feet with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, it’s a reasonable space that feels imminently livable and totally welcoming. The open floorplan, neutral colors, contemporary furniture, and fabulous light make it a calming space, as well.

I love the quirky and personal, which sometimes gets obliterated when people stage homes for sale. You lose a lot of the fun details that went into a house, features that really made it a home for someone.

There are tons of those lovely little Easter eggs inside this house. Of course, the first thing you’ll notice when you walk inside 7125 Haverford is the unique flooring. It’s made from repurposed gymnasium courts, a cool, colorful, and sustainable way to score an eye-catching hardwood floor. I absolutely love it, and it extends throughout the home. Of course, the seller has thought of everything, and if you love everything about this home except the floor, they’ll include a $3,500 allowance for refinishing the floor to your tastes.

The home, which is marketed by Ebby Halliday agent McKenzie Schimming for $298,500, has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, 2,100 square feet and is inside the Lakewood Elementary attendance area. There are tons of built-ins, great neutral paint, and really buckets of fun finishes in this lovely home.

There are two living areas, an updated kitchen, a wood-burning fireplace, and a super cool, fully insulated two-car garage that could double as a studio or workshop. The kitchen is super sleek and gorgeous, and insanely open, thanks to the lack of upper cabinets. It’s a fabulous kitchen for entertaining, that’s for sure. You’ll also adore the reclaimed wood countertops, farmhouse sink, and understated mosaic backsplash. The hardware is simple and modern, really echoing the kitchen’s overall style.

Another great feature is the master bath, which has such a cool double vanity made from a reclaimed sideboard. That’s where the fun ends, though, because you’ll find a very beige and boring shower (no tub) in there. I was really hoping for something more fun that fit with the rest of the home’s personality. Still, it’s not a bad effort.

The backyard is a good size, and there’s a great pergola above the porch to shade it from the hot summer sun. Overall, this is a fabulous house with tons of personality! What do you love about it?
