When it comes to renovations, some people say, “Go big, or go home.” And that’s exactly the case at 11229 Lanewood Cir., in East Dallas’ Lochwood neighborhood. Built in 1957, it was recently taken to the studs for a total reimagination, and out of that emerged something stylish and on-trend.
The 1,680-square-foot three-bedroom, two-bathroom traditional sits on a heavily treed lot near Northwest Highway and Jupiter Road, just a block from Lochwood Park.
The curb appeal is absolutely darling, with a midcentury turquoise front door that totally pops against the neutral tan brick and manicured landscaping.
Inside, the home is open concept, with recessed lighting and hand-scraped hardwood floors. From the front door, you can see the living room, dining room, and kitchen — which is a huge selling feature for potential buyers.
The kitchen was taken from a galley to a light and bright space. It features white granite countertops; arabesque tile backsplash; white Shaker cabinets with new pulls and knobs; and stainless steel appliances, including a gas range and contemporary suspended vent hood.
The Shaker cabinets and white marble continue in both bathrooms, which are updated beautifully. The master bath features a large walk-in shower with a frameless glass front, new tile, two showerheads, and a shower nook and seating area.
Glass doors open onto an elevated backyard deck that overlooks a good-sized backyard with carefully planned landscaping. In other words — it's an ideal entertaining spot.
The house is listed by Karen Cuskey with Coldwell Banker Residential for $386,400.
