6675 Lakewood Boulevard

 

Lakewood is loved for its close-knit community, its easily walkable neighborhoods, and of course, its architecture. One of the best Lakewood neighborhoods to gawk at tons of gorgeous homes is Country Club Estates. This area, protected by a conservation district, has some of the most truly beautiful historic homes east of Swiss Avenue.

And this property, which has such fantastic presence on an over-sized lot, is such a gem. It’s on one of the prettiest streets in Lakewood, the neighborhood’s eponymous boulevard. And now you can own it. Jump to find out more!

Is your heart beating faster? There is also a huge plus right here, in what I think is the THEE most important element of real estate: location. This home overlooks Tokalon, which I would arguably call the most beautiful street in Dallas, or certainly one of the top five.

Let us pause here. What ARE the most beautiful streets in Dallas? Tokalon, Beverly, Swiss, Nonesuch, and Rockbrook. But I also love Meadowood, Meadowbrook, DeLoache, Brookview and Cochran Chapel. Vanguard Way? Strait Lane, meh. So flat, so showy. Don’t know, there are so many. We will truly have to post on that topic sometime, so put your best street-thinking caps on. Meantime, 2429 Pickens… (more…)

Today’s Tuesday Two Hundred takes us just north of White Rock Lake in Lakewood to 7325 Rutgers Drive. This fantastic East Dallas neighborhood is full of other handsome midcentury houses like this one, but few are priced as competitively: With a recent price reduction, it is now listed for $299,900, or $185 per square foot. Nearby comps have been averaging almost $200 per square foot.

Built in 1960 and recently updated, this brick house is a 3-2 with 1,617 square feet sitting on 0.178 acres with lovely, mature trees. Located within walking distance of the new playground and splash park at Ridgewood-Belcher Rec Center, this University Terrace property is in the Lakewood Elementary, Long Middle, and Woodrow Wilson High School zones. Nearby private schools include Zion Lutheran, St. Thomas Aquinas Elementary, and Dallas Academy. The neighborhood has a Fourth of July parade and a Halloween party for local kids. Needless to say, the area draws many families.

Twin Tree Lane Front

Let me tell you, when I look around for interesting luxury properties to feature on our Monday Morning Millionaire spot, I often get a surprise. Take this Lakewood Soft Contemporary for example. Built in 1956,  it has three bedrooms, two full and two half baths, and a hot tub inside. Yeah, that hot tub is inside the house. And a steam room. Amazing.

7231 Twin Tree Spa

This is a new one for me. Usually, yes, you see the spa right next to the pool outside. If I want an indoor hot tub session or a good sauna, I go to King Spa off Royal and I-35. If that trek seems like too much for you, than 7231 Twin Tree Lane is right up your alley.

7231 Twin Tree Living

Of course, there’s much more to this Green Cove Estates one-story. It’s one block from White Rock Lake, it’s in the Lakewood Elementary attendance zone, and it has some amazing landscaping that will keep you feeling zen just by stepping outside. Priced at $1.1 million, it’s a great buy considering all of the updates and the gorgeous kitchen.

7231 Twin Tree Kitchen

With almost 4,000 square feet of space, you won’t be elbow-to-elbow at the next luncheon you host, that’s for sure. And with an open floor plan, you’ll be entertaining crowds for just about every occasion.

7231 Twin Tree Master

Another bonus is the private feel of the lot, which is just larger than half an acre. That’s perfect considering all of the huge picture windows throughout the main living areas. You can see the water features and lush landscaping in the comfort of air conditioning. That’s my cup of tea!
