As time goes by, one of my favorite things about summer in East Dallas has gone from Saturday afternoon at the Fraternal Order of Eagles pool to hanging out at the house, listening to a ball game on the radio with my son and husband, and doing some light gardening. Truly, outdoor entertaining is great, too, but as the summer goes on, there’s one scourge that is sure to keep me indoors: mosquitoes. 

That’s why this fantastic ranch in Lochwood Meadows appeals to me. Not only does it have a great floor plan with cozy spaces and an extremely great location, but it has a screened porch in the back that is perfect for summer dinners and baseball on the radio. Inside 11017 Carissa Dr. in Lochwood Meadows, you’ll find out just why this listing from White Rock Lake expert Jenny Capritta is our Inwood National Bank Home of the Week.

Lochwood Meadows is one of three sub-neighborhoods in the lovely East Dallas neighborhood of Lochwood. This area near White Rock Lake is on a greenbelt, with lots of mature trees, wildlife, and a lush feel. Most of the homes here were built in the 1960s.

Our Thursday Three Hundred just hit the market in Lochwood Meadows, located at 12003 Brookmeadow Ln. near Northwest Highway and Jupiter Road. It is a short walk to Lochwood Park, a 12.3-acre green space with a playground, baseball field, basketball court, picnic tables, swimming pool, tennis court, and trails.

This house is updated and light-filled, with three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, one half bath, two living areas, a study, and 1,978 square feet on one story, built in 1965. Let’s take a look!
