We all love a good makeover story and have I got one for you today! It’s our Inwood Home of the Week, and it’s a beauty. Rather than scrape this 1958 suburban ranch house at 5406 Caladium, the buyer transformed it into a luxury Texas transitional.

You have to have extraordinary vision to realize this suburban ranch can transition to a luxury Texas transitional.

“The neighborhood is fantastic,” Bodiwala said. “The house is in Inwood Road Estates, and you can’t ask for a more convenient location.” This luxury Texas transitional is right between Inwood Road and the Dallas North Tollway, just south of Forest Lane. The Lamplighter School and Hockaday are a block away.
