L Streets

The L Streets are a hot area of East Dallas, part of the Lake Highlands community and located 11 miles northeast of downtown. The L Streets are close to White Rock Lake and the area is full of arching shade trees and super cute houses. There’s a reason real estate here flies on and off the market so fast. 

Our Thursday Three Hundred, located at 9221 Leaside Dr., has so much personality going for it and it’s only been listed for three days. There’s nothing cookie cutter about it, with a flawless marriage of vintage charms and modern updates. The abundance of storage is particularly impressive in this house, which has two bedrooms, one full bathroom, one half bath, two living areas, and 1,460 square feet on one story, built in 1956.

Stevens Park Village

Graceful, stylish living claims its space as our Thursday Three Hundred, a 1941 stone cottage in North Oak Cliff’s Stevens Park Village.

Sitting on an elevated lot, the property at 2311 Lawndale Dr. is one of the original houses in the area. It retains an authentic feel of that era with its architectural details and some vintage features. But the owners’ recent renovations brought it up to date and created the kind of features that make buyers speed-dial their Realtor. Think marble hexagon tile in the guest bathroom, rich cabinetry in the kitchen (and plenty of it), and refinished original hardwoods.

“There’s a very nice layout and for the size of the house, you’re getting a lot of openness,” said listing agent Ged Dipprey with Dave Perry-Miller Intown. “There’s great flow from living to dining room with an original arch that opens into the kitchen.”

The marriage between original and updated is flawless in this two-bedroom, two-bathroom cottage. Its 1,544 square feet are indeed well appointed and create the perception of much more space.
