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!

When you think of high-end housing, does Garland come to mind? It should — this eastern DFW city offers some coveted gated communities with golf course views, larger lots, high-end finish-out, and custom details. 

Garland is large, 57.1 square miles, and bordered by Dallas, Mesquite, Sunnyvale, Lake Ray Hubbard, Rowlett, Sachse, Murphy, and Richardson. It has a rich history that has helped shape it into a family-oriented, thriving city in North Texas with almost 237,000 people. It offers easy access to downtown Dallas via Interstate 30, two DART Blue line stations, and multiple buses. 

Compared to many parts of DFW, you can buy a lot of house for your money in Garland. That’s why it pays to have a local expert by your side if you’re buying in the city, like the Realtors at Ebby Halliday. They know exactly what you can get in each neighborhood, what the competition is like, and how to best negotiate a sale. 

I’ve found three stellar houses for sale in Garland that illustrate the higher-end properties there, all repped by Ebby. Let’s take a look!
