Midcentury aficionados on a budget need look no further than 10509 Evangeline Way. Located in East Dallas' up-and-coming Lochwood neighborhood, this three-bedroom, two-bath, 1,740-square-foot home looks as though it’s fresh out of a time capsule. And priced at just $395,000, it clocks in at a reasonable $227 per square foot.
Updated appropriately where it matters most — read: kitchen and baths — the home still boasts plenty of original details, from exposed brick and hardwood floors to a retro oven wall and gas fireplace. The red double front doors and large front yard provide nice drive-up appeal, and a covered two-car carport offers protection from the elements.
Inside, an open-concept living-dining space features high, vaulted ceilings accented with white wood beams. With access to the backyard through sliding glass doors and proximity to the kitchen, this flexible space is great for entertaining.
The kitchen balances old and new beautifully, blending white quartz countertops and a new gas range and stainless hood with the original oven wall and minimalist white cabinetry. There’s also loads of counter space, thanks in part to the large, eat-in island.
Three bedrooms, one of which could easily be used as a home office, are comfortable in size and boast beautiful hardwood floors. Both of the two full bathrooms have been updated, one bearing a handsome, spa-like look.
While not sprawling, the backyard offers more than enough space to suit the whole family's needs. A section has been landscaped with gravel for outdoor entertaining, while a portion has been left grassed for pets and kids to play.
