Alger Park MidcenturyA brand-new listing caught my eye this week, an adorable Midcentury Modern in East Dallas’ Alger Park. The house at 9832 Mercer Dr. has lots of original details from its 1952 construction, like a stacked stone fireplace, Terrazzo floors, retro kitchen, and vintage tiled bathrooms.

With its open floorplan, two bedrooms, and 1.5 bathrooms, this home feels more spacious than its 1,544 square feet. A wall of windows along the back of the house looks out onto a heavily treed, landscaped backyard. A small covered patio and lots of grass provide great space for relaxation or entertaining.

There’s a broker open house tomorrow from 10 a.m. to noon for this house, listed last week by Cortney Bailey at Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty for $259,000. Better move fast if you’re interested—properties in this great neighborhood move quickly!


3714 Crown Shore A

I’m loving these newly listed houses that have snow in their real estate photos! Today’s Tuesday Two Hundred is a brand-spanking-new listing at 3714 Crown Shore Dr. near Marsh and Forest lanes, and the snow photos are just the tip of the iceberg. (Sorry, I punned.)

This 4-2 ranch has 1,933 square feet, fantastic vaulted ceilings with wood beams, a fireplace, a large skylight, hardwood floors, and covered patio. It is listed by Don Thomas at Virginia Cook Realtors for $220,000.

3714 Crown Shore B

The house has solid curb appeal, with mature trees and landscaping. It needs to be powerwashed to show off that cream-colored brick, but that’s a quick fix. There’s so much to like about this house!


3373 Jubilee Trail is a darling starter home in an area of Northwest Dallas that is growing hot with young starter families. This home has good bones, been somewhat updated, and sits on a lovely quarter acre corner lot with trees, brand new driveway and sidewalk, and a new cedar fence. Here’s what you get: four bedrooms (!) in  2432 square feet, two and a half baths, formals, fireplace and patio.
