You just don’t see homes like this hit the market too often. And when they do, it takes just the right buyer to maximize its potential. And boy, is there just tons of potential with 6934 Tokalon, a California-style Midcentury Modern listed by Scott Carlson for $1.2 million.
Located on one of the most sought-after streets in all of Lakewood, this home has some stunning original features that will have any mid-mod lover go weak in the knees. Check out the incredible window clusters, the gorgeous curved brick wall, the stacked elevation, and the Los Angeles-style front gate. That’s the perfect way to avoid the paparazzi!
“Tokalon is the prettiest street in Dallas and located a few blocks from the shores of White Rock Lake,” Carlson said. “This unique, pure Midcentury Modern is situated among multi-million dollar homes on beautiful lot with magnificent trees. It’s move-in ready, or seller has amazing plans for addition and renovation. Awesome opportunity for that rare connoisseur of unique architecture and design.”
We couldn’t agree more.
With three bedrooms, two full and one half bath, and almost 3,000 square feet, this home is perfect for someone looking for the perfect place to entertain and doesn’t mind the hard work of a remodel. Really, this house is meant for a person who has inspiration. Imagine what you could do to really bring this home into the 21st century! Start with a luxurious neutral color palette, throw in some unique materials, and use clean lines to really emphasize the space.
The walls of windows and warm wood floors are just the balm for the stark white interiors. The fireplace makes the whole first floor feel gracious, too. Really, this home has such an amazing floor plan. Some of the fixtures and finishes are dated, as you will see in photos of the master bath and closet, but this is a home for a true lover of midcentury architecture, and likewise, it will be a labor of love.
Besides an amazing structure, this home is located inside the Lakewood Elementary attendance area, which feeds into acclaimed Woodrow Wilson High School. It’s an outstanding family home, and also has fresh landscaping throughout the grounds.
I am sure it will be snatched up by someone who wants to turn this beauty into a show-stopper, worthy of any of the myriad amazing home tours that cover Lakewood and Dallas. I can’t wait to see what it looks like afterward!
