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 has all the hallmarks of coveted East Dallas midcentury modern homes that we ogle, as well as some smart upgrades and some details left untouched!

Happy Thanksgiving! Take some time after your pie, but before your nap, to enjoy our Thursday Three Hundred. This 1960 renovated ranch, located in Lake Highlands North, is updated, fresh, and move-in ready.

It has the character you’d expect in a house of this era, married beautifully with more modern updates that appeal to buyers.

This home has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living areas, and 1,880 square feet on one story.

Lake Highlands north homeEditor’s note: An earlier version of this story quoted the LBJ Express website, which said there were sound walls installed in this area to reduce highway noise. That is incorrect. We regret the error.

We know that living “inside the loop” (635, of course) is imperative for some folks. Today’s Tuesday Two Hundred is a Lake Highlands North home that just makes the cut at 10239 Vistadale Dr.

This mid-1960s cutie is recently updated, with three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and 1,872 square feet. It’s located just inside the loop; the backyard faces toward the highway. While the noise level might be a concern, this house has a lot of space and amenities to offer inside. Lake Highlands north homeRecent renovations opened up the kitchen and created a great sense of flow through the kitchen, breakfast area, and back living/family room. Bathrooms are also updated, and the mature trees and new landscaping give it wonderful curb appeal.

This house is in the Wallace Elementary attendance zone, rated “7” out of 10 by GreatSchools.org (it’s zoned for Richardson ISD schools).

It was listed Friday by Ross Spencer with Gilchrist & Company Real Estate for $289,000.

If there was ever a deal, this is it. When I asked Dallas City Center Director Kevin Caskey about this house, he told me that there was already tons of interest in it. That was three days ago, and this home hasn’t been on MLS for more than a day! Truly, homes in the $300K ranch are a hot ticket in Dallas, and one in Lake Highlands with some really fabulous updates is going to have a full dance card.

I love this home for so many reasons, namely the clean, uncluttered updates that this seller did. Trust me, this home may look a little bland from the curb, but it’s a knockout inside! Jump to see the photos!
