Midcentury modern enthusiasts in the market for a home will be happy to learn there is a new listing at 11023 Pinocchio Dr., in the sought-after Disney Streets of Midway Hills. Named after Walt Disney characters and places, the North Dallas neighborhood near Midway Road and Royal Lane features excellent examples of popular architectural styles of the mid-1950s, including traditional ranch and contemporary.

This particular Pinocchio abode was designed by architect George Halfin for the 1954 Parade of Homes, an event sponsored by the Dallas chapter of the National Association of Home Builders. The Parade of Homes was created in 1952 to showcase the latest trends in building technology and design.

Although it has been updated, the 2,523-square-foot home still retains much of its original character and charms, including built-in walnut cabinetry and tilework. The three-bedroom, two-bath house boasts an open floor plan, which is a must for today's buyer.

Dining and living areas combine into one great space for family togetherness or entertaining. The living area also extends into a bright and cheery sunroom, bound to the rest of the home's public spaces with the same adobe tile. The large treed lot offers plenty of shady places for kids to run around.

The living space is visible from a pass-through in the kitchen, which has cool angled cabinetry, black granite countertops, and a cozy eat-in area for breakfasts and snacks, and an island for prepping. Bedrooms are cozy but functional, with hardwood flooring.

Asking price is $450,000, listed with the Morguloff Team of Ebby Halliday.
