White Rock Lake Heritage Estate

We’ve seen a lot of iconic properties listed for sale in 2017. Hang onto your Stetsons, because we have another once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for you.

This stately White Rock Lake heritage estate at 4343 Lawther Drive was built in 1940 for Alto B. Cervin, an industrial attorney. It remained in the same family until the present owner purchased the property in 2006. And now it can be yours for only $3.995 million. That’s not much when you consider Mount Vernon, the H.L. Hunt 10-acre estate, was on the market for $19 million not so long ago. (more…)

When I walk my dogs through my quaint East Dallas neighborhood, I often make mental notes of homes that are purchased by investors or are headed for the market. It just so happened that, when the sign was still being put in the yard at 10216 Pinecrest, I was out walking my dogs and Jeanna McIntyre, co-owner of New Creation Group, was there staging. Once the dogs were safely home, I came back to get a sneak peek of this adorable cottage in Casa View Haven that really speaks to the great value you can find in this neighborhood.

With mature trees, rolling topography, proximity to White Rock Lake, and tons of charming homes, Lochwood is getting plenty of attention from buyers. Of course, when there’s a lot of interest in a neighborhood, prices tend to go up, so we’re not surprised to see this ranch on Rogue Way priced in the $400,000 range. Truly, we have been wondering when the rest of Dallas was going to catch on to this great little enclave of 1960s architecture. 

But this little home, while it’s unassuming from the curb, packs quite the punch inside. With a designer kitchen, open spaces, and tons of light, you’re sure to fall in love with this hip-pocket listing from Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate’s Scott Kaserman at 11718 Rogue Way.

Cathy and Darren Lee have flipped about 20 homes in the last two years, but none of them were quite as distinctive as this Cliff May-designed midcentury modern in Casa View.

If 2620 Andrea Lane looks familiar, it’s because you’ve likely seen it while touring Casa View’s epic collection of California modern homes. Listing agent Alicia Lee will put this updated and expanded Cliff May on the market this evening for $310,000 — a record-setting price for the area. To find out more, call 972-978-6584.

Though many of these homes have been neglected or suffered incompatible renovations over the years, this particular home is solid — something Darren insists upon for all of his investment properties.

In the search for a cool midcentury modern home in East Dallas, you’ll come across a lot of duds. Some of them, while once cool, have had their interiors sacrificed to the altar of dated renovations. It’s a sad sight to behold. But once in a while you come across a real gem that has been lovingly maintained by owners conscious of the period. This week’s High Caliber Home sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans is one such property. 

It’s a listing from midcentury modern expert Realtor Brandon Stewart at David Griffin & Co. and it will bring joy to the heart of any fan of the era. Just see inside!

Midcentury Modern 7105 Hillgreen Dr. 1
Finding a secluded 1956 midcentury modern house on almost an acre of land, steps away from White Rock Lake, and for only $1.499 million is remarkable. Homes like 7105 Hillgreen Drive rarely hit the market, because owners  of midcentury moderns seldom move. In fact, this classic  home has only had three owners including noted architect Larry Sauer who designed the World Bank “J” Building, the Cato Institute, and the National Archives ll.
