Condos and townhomes are only going to grow in popularity in Lakewood, as more and more aging multifamily structures — including the brick duplexes and fourplexes that line many of the side streets off of Gaston Avenue — are razed. This development, built in 2006 right off of Oram Street, is a great example of a well-maintained condo building with beautiful finish-out and livable, warm spaces. Britt Lopez of Dallas City Center Realtors has listed No. 16 at 6269 Oram Street for $540,000.

Lakewood Mid Century Home 6926 Kenwood 1

Lakewood is one of those neighborhoods that offers that small-town, know-your-neighbors experience. Finding a house here, however, is not always easy. Finding one under a million, that’s move- ready, is even harder.

But we’ve done it! Our Friday Five Hundred, at 6926 Kenwood Ave., is a sophisticated Lakewood midcentury home that has been beautifully remodeled. Stephanie Pinkston and Margie Harris with Allie Beth Allman have it listed for $599,000. (more…)

When 6907 Sperry  in Caruth Terrace was built back in 1964, one of the biggest decisions a homeowner had to make was the tile and fixture color schemes in the bathrooms. There were no master retreats, no vessel sinks, and no vast oceans of marble. You got seafoam, baby blue, or the ignominious pink tile in most cases. Other popular choices were mint green, gray, and white. But these bathrooms, with their half-tile walls and tile counter tops with color-matched sinks are growing rarer as the cult of Carrara proselytizes the liturgy of white on white on white.

So it’s a real treat to see a midcentury ranch with not one, not but two intact vintage bathrooms!

Neighborhoods can evolve rapidly, and we’re always on the lookout for the hidden gems that are in the process of turning over and becoming the next hot place to buy.

On our radar now? Homes close to the Santa Fe Trail in East Dallas.  It’s a hop, skip, and jump from Lakewood, Hollywood Heights, and White Rock Lake, right on the Santa Fe Trail, and zoned for Lakewood Elementary, which earns a “10” out of 10 from greatschools.org.

We’ve found an incredible listing at 310 S. Glasgow Dr., a new construction just listed for $599,000. With almost 3,000 square feet, designer finishes, and sleek, transitional style, this same house would be priced at $849K if it were just two blocks away, closer to Lakewood shopping center, said listing agent Lee Lamont with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.

“This house and several others nearby were just built by BCH Development, who have been in Lakewood and the Park Cities for 20 years,” Lamont said. “This price is unheard of in East Dallas for a new home with a full builder’s warranty sophisticated spaces, high-end finishes throughout, and remarkable efficiency with foam wall insulation and low-E windows.”

Like the home next door that just went under contract, this home has four bedrooms, three full bathrooms, one half bath, an office, two living areas, and 2,938 square feet on two stories. Let’s take a look!
