Reimagined Lochwood Home Allures with Greenbelt Location, Updated Kitchen-Baths | CandysDirt.com

If you’re looking for an East Dallas neighborhood that sits at the intersection of urban and outdoorsy, Lochwood is your ticket. Houses here fly on and off the market for a reason: people love the neighborhood! 

Lochwood is situated a few miles east of White Rock Lake, about a 15-minute drive from downtown and a hop, skip, and jump to LBJ Freeway. So why is the area so beloved? Think lush greenbelts, arching shade trees, a variety of wildlife, wooded areas, hiking trails, and creeks. And don’t forget the 12.3-acre neighborhood park with two tennis courts, a basketball court, picnic tables, baseball diamond, trails, swimming pool, and a new playground. There’s also proximity to the lake, Dallas Arboretum, and a host of restaurants and bars. 

Our Thursday Three Hundred at 11359 Gatewood Pl. sits near East Northwest Highway and Jupiter Road on a 0.33-acre cul-de-sac creek lot with the backyard overlooking a verdurous greenbelt. It has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living areas, two dining areas, and 1,657 square feet on one story, built in 1960. Let’s take a look!

Lochwood Estates midcentury

Our Tuesday Two Hundred is a Lochwood Estates midcentury that generated multiple offers over asking price after just four days on the market.

This East Dallas neighborhood is affordable and desirable with lush greenbelts, mature trees, lots of wildlife, and close proximity to White Rock Lake. With killer curb appeal and a cute interior, the home at 12030 Sunland St. offers atomic era style. It also has an attached two-car garage, a rarity in the area and big bonus among buyers.

“We thought of pricing it at $249K, but we decided to drop it based on comps to get attention — it helps to get as many eyeballs on it as possible that first weekend,” said listing agent Jason Castro with Keller Williams — Dallas Park Cities. “These sellers need to move quickly. When you have multiple offers it helps you negotiate a lot of terms and helps you get to close quickly without many snags in the process.”

Castro’s strategy worked. He had ten offers as of noon yesterday, and all are above asking price, except one lowball cash offer. He says he expects another five or so. How’s that for a hot property?

This home has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,173 square feet on on story, built in 1961.
