Lake Terrace Midcentury Modern

You’re probably already familiar with the Lake Terrace neighborhood of East Dallas, though you might not know it yet. Bounded by Northcliff Drive, Peavy Road, East Lake Highlands Drive, and Kirkwood Drive, this little area features some wonderful midcentury modern homes and post-war ranches, some of which have been lovingly preserved and updated. When David Griffin & Company Realtor Jennifer Rice told me she would soon have an East Dallas midcentury modern on the market, I was so pleased to find out that it was not only a splendid example of a Lake Terrace midcentury modern, but that it was the personal home of her and her husband, Joshua. 

Why is that important? Because he’s the Joshua Rice behind Joshua Rice Design — an interior design firm that does amazing work in several contexts, as well as bespoke furniture design. He honed his skills under the acclaimed Bodron+Fruit and has gone on to work on some of the most significant modern homes in the city.

So in 9810 Northcliff Drive, sited right across the street from award-winning Hexter Elementary, you get a high-impact capsule of midcentury modern design completely renovated by a celebrated interior designer and marketed by an especially popular Realtor. If that doesn’t say “power couple,” we might as well redefine the term. 

All the more reason to name this exceptional property, which hits the market this week, our High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans. We know you’ll fall in love with this Lake Terrace midcentury modern, so call Lisa Peters today to put in your highest and best offer on this one-of-a-kind home.

With East Dallas midcentury modern homes being as hot as they are, it feels like an exercise in futility to fall in love with one. Just as soon as we see one of these highly coveted homes, it’s snapped up by a similarly eager buyer before we can say “earnest money.”
 
Lucky for us, we happened on this week’s High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans before any other would-be buyer hungry for clean lines and natural light. It’s a fabulous Lake Highlands North midcentury modern listed by David Collier and Jennifer Rice of David Griffin & Company Realtors.

It’s the stuff HGTV series are made of, and considering the runaway success of Flip or Flop Fort Worth, we have to wonder if Daniel and Stesha Gearner are the next wedded pair to take on the mantle of the popular real estate reality series. 

With an unapologetically hipster aesthetic, the Gearners infused trendy style in this White Rock Forest home. Once a tired ranch, the couple breathed new life into this midcentury ranch, to great aplomb. Truly, 8715 Fawn Drive is perfect for a family of little deer, and therefore an easy choice for our High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans. It’s another fantastic East Dallas listing from David Collier and Jennifer Rice of David Griffin & Company.
