Tamra Torres of the Shelly Seltzer Group at Ebby Halliday has listed 10421 Solta Drive for $425,000.

Attention Old Lake Highlands house hunters! Let your search for the perfect retro remodel be no more. We’ve locked onto a stylish 1950s gem that’s turning heads, and you’ll want to take a look! The three-bedroom, two-full-bathroom home is light, and bright, and sized just right with 1,602 square feet of newly refurbished interior space. And it’s one of the area’s longstanding husband-and-wife duos – Patrick and Jeanna McIntyre of New Creation Group – that brought this Old Lake Highlands gem back to life!

“My husband and I are the owners and sellers, and the ones who rehabbed this house. We have been restoring and selling homes in East Dallas for 17 years … long before ‘flipping’ became vogue,” says Jeanna. “Since, we have lived all over East Dallas, our passion is to buy and remodel classic 1950 – 60s homes to preserve the character and maintain property values through renovation and revitalization. We do top-quality renovations to attract good, responsible homeowners to the neighborhood. We are experienced contractors that do top-quality work, we go over and above on design and finish-out, we are respectful to neighbors and the people we hire, and we are committed to continue helping East Dallas to thrive!”

Tamra Torres of the Shelly Seltzer Group at Ebby Halliday is listing the property for $425,000, making it the perfect Friday Four Hundred! In fact, Torres has successfully sold over 20 properties for the McIntyres and soon will add this Old Lake Highlands beauty to her list!

Let’s just get it out of the way: I live in this area of Casa View Haven, and I have seen this house just about every day for the past 11 years. No joke, the only change the sellers made to this house in the time I have lived in the Eastwood Park area of CVH was when they installed a wheelchair ramp. 

Spoiler alert: The ramp was one of the first things to go when Jeanna and Patrick McIntyre of New Creation Group got their hands on it. Even with that gone, the home was far from eye candy. 

“While we were blessed with large, arching, 50-plus-year-old trees and a good lot, the front elevation of the home itself was seriously lacking,” said Jeanna.

Not anymore. Not only did Jeanna and Patrick completely transform the outside of this 1950s post-war ranch in Casa View Haven, they did a full-on remodel of this ugly duckling from top to bottom inside.

When I walk my dogs through my quaint East Dallas neighborhood, I often make mental notes of homes that are purchased by investors or are headed for the market. It just so happened that, when the sign was still being put in the yard at 10216 Pinecrest, I was out walking my dogs and Jeanna McIntyre, co-owner of New Creation Group, was there staging. Once the dogs were safely home, I came back to get a sneak peek of this adorable cottage in Casa View Haven that really speaks to the great value you can find in this neighborhood.
