When you know, you know, and listing agent Chris Pyle believes his property at 10862 Carissa Dr. in Lochwood is going to go fast. There are so many special touches, it's easy to see why.

Built in 1970, the home has been painstakingly renovated by the owners. The result is a property that nods respectfully to its original, midcentury modern style, while welcoming tasteful upgrades that will transition it into the future. 

"My clients have a great eye for design and are not afraid of going deep with rich colors," says Pyle, with Allie Beth Allman & Associates. "This home is turnkey and fully updated to today's buyers' standards."

Offered at $625,000, the house has four bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms with 2,415 square feet of living space. It checks all of the boxes, with hardwood floors, a two-car garage, and multiple living spaces. 

The heart of the home is a cozy family room with vaulted ceilings and a handsome stone-clad fireplace that's a little bit "Mad Men," a little bit Adolphus hotel. Its location off the renovated kitchen makes it an ideal place for the family to hang out or for hosts to entertain guests while keeping an eye on dinner.

Prospective buyers will surely delight in the spacious master retreat that overlooks the sparkling backyard pool. It also has a spa-like bathroom and a large closet. Pyles says you have to see it this area of the house in person to truly experience its tranquility.

"Photos do not capture the Hollywood Hills feeling the master bedroom has, with the French doors opening out to the pool and lush landscaping," Pyle says. "This home fits exactly the mold of the Lochwood buyer that wants the '70s vibe with current design features."

Basically, million-dollar California vibes in Dallas for less than a million bucks. (Click through the photos to see more details of the house.)
