Buckner TerraceWhen people think “East Dallas,” the neighborhoods that usually spring to mind are big names, like Lakewood, Forest Hills, Swiss Avenue, and Junius Heights.

But a little further east and south of White Rock lake is the hidden jewel of Buckner Terrace, where prices are more affordable than many other East Dallas neighborhoods. The homes there are mostly one-and two-story ranches, with lots of interior space, large lots, and mature oak, magnolia, and pecan trees. From many of the streets in Buckner Terrace, you can catch a peek of the downtown Dallas skyline—it’s only five miles away.

Today’s Tuesday Two Hundred hasn’t hit the market yet—it lists Thursday—so we’re getting an exclusive first look at the renovated beauty at 5727 Marview Ln., in the Everglade Park area of Buckner Terrace, near Jim Miller Road and Samuell Boulevard.

This traditional 1970’s ranch has taken on a new modern look with a comfortable and fluid floorplan, warm and welcoming color palette, and meticulous attention to what many of today’s buyers want: natural materials, clean lines, and timeless finishes. It is steeped in natural light, and the soft whites and grays can be seen throughout the 2,258 square feet of living space.

The owner is an architect and artist and has implemented his vision into the redesign of the house to bring it into living with a modern, funky style (and if you love something you see, take note. All the furnishings in this home are all for sale, including the art).

It will be listed Thursday for $249,900 by Mark Manley of Virginia Cook, Realtors, a longtime resident of the neighborhood himself. Get your offers ready!
