When Midcentury Modern homes hit the market, they often get snapped up so quickly that our heads spin. So if you’re desperate to get a Midcentury Modern home with plenty of room for renovations and updates, our Inwood National Bank Home of the Week is your opportunity to get it while it’s hot — and affordable!

This listing from Jenny Capritta is in the nexus of East Dallas’ treasured enclave of Midcentury Modern architecture. The Lake Gardens area of East Dallas’ White Rock Lake neighborhoods has tall trees, winding streets with hilly topography, and an outstanding collection of original and renovated Midcentury Modern homes.

This particular property offers something of a blank slate for those not afraid of taking a home to the studs and remaking it into a showplace.

Meadowbrook Hills

The listing describes 5909 Monterrey Lane as a hidden gem — a characterization that perfectly epitomizes the relatively unknown Meadowbrook Hills addition in general.

Not that Meadowbrook Hills is a new neighborhood. Developed in 1951, it is embellished with large trees and midcentury houses on large lots. Located east of town, the addition lies just inside of Loop 820. Established Fort Worthers have looked askance at the location as out of the way and inconvenient but it is nearer to town than many new western additions. And the average per square foot price of about $100 makes the area tempting and is enticing buyers on the hunt for value.

Home is made for parties and hospitality

This episode of Tarrant County Tuesday is only for those who like to party.  If you don’t like people, don’t like going to parties, or don’t like hosting events at your home, stop reading now.

For the rest of you avid Dirty Readers, let me introduce you to a home that screams “hospitality!”

Lake Living Without The Lake

Have you ever wanted to live near a body of water?  You know, a lake house or beach house where you have tranquil views of the tide or lapping water from your patio?

How about a home with those same qualities … but that’s not located on a lake! Huh?  How can this be?

In the center of the Ridglea Hills neighborhood of Fort Worth lies Luther Lake.  You will probably remember that I wrote about a home on Luther Lake a few years ago.

Luther Lake is a hidden lake in the middle of Ridglea Hills in Fort Worth.

Midcentury homes are hot, but an updated one for $299,000? Wear some protective gear because they’re basically on fire.

This three-bedroom, two-bath located in Forest Oaks off Ferguson Road in East Dallas is definitely of the flame-retardant variety. (And just so we’re clear, this is a metaphor. Nothing’s really on fire.)

Listed by Ray King of R. King Realty, 2222 Forest Oaks is 1,300 square feet of total update complete with wood-lined carport and decorative railing leading up to the perfect aqua front door.

Heights ParkA few weeks ago, the boss lady spoke at the Far North Dallas MLS group meeting, and she pretty much immediately emailed staff about a house she just loved in the Heights Park neighborhood in Richardson.

Candy got a quick look-see, she said, of this listing from Dan Washburn (of Washburn Realty), and just knew we needed to tell our readers about it.

And now, it’s on the market (as of this week), and she’s right — you do need to see this re-imagined Midcentury Ranch that Washburn tells us was “lovingly renovated from the studs out.” (more…)
