8702 San Fernando Front

Teardowns are a contentious topic in Little Forest Hills, an East Dallas neighborhood that has tried twice to get a conservation district overlay, failing both times. Still, as many residents in Hollywood Santa Monica know, not every home is worth saving, especially those that are tiny, ramshackle affairs that seem almost propped up on cinder blocks, ready to blow sideways at the next breeze.

Of course, with a neighborhood motto like “Keep Little Forest Hills Funky,” sometimes a new build will follow that creed despite what structure was razed to make room for it. There’s no better example of this than the bright, colorful, quirky modern at 8702 San Fernando Way.

Jump to see inside this sweetheart of a new build that is exceptionally bright and very, very green.

What a fantastic opportunity to buy a Ju-Nel home! This 1960 ranch, designed by Lyle Rowley and Jack Wilson, is another one of those fantastic specimens that looks amazing after a remodel. We featured another amazing Ju-Nel home in this neighborhood, Eastwood Estates, and while that one was modern with a transitional spin, this updated home is all contemporary. It’s inside the acclaimed Hexter Elementary attendance area, just down East Lake Highlands Drive from White Rock Lake, and close to great shopping at Casa Linda Plaza.

This is one of those homes that, when you see it, you have to have it. With a great location, unbelievable upgrades, and a beautiful backyard, it will truly inspire you to grab your checkbook and get a contract in! Don’t let financing be the stumbling block between you and your dream home. Call Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans today.
