Sometimes serenity can only be found near water, like in this midcentury gem currently for sale near White Rock Lake.
The three-bedroom, two-bathroom home at 7243 Meadow Lake Ave. in East Dallas is a study in contrasts, with its striking architecture and cozy, calm feel. We have a hunch that being only a block from White Rock Lake has something to do with the latter.
Downstairs a contemporary kitchen featuring fine cabinetry and stainless appliances. Also notice the original flagstone fireplace and the handsome maple floors. The first level also has an original bathroom, a plus for those who have an affinity for 1950s design, and two bedrooms.
“The current owner purchased the home from the original owner,” Ebby Halliday listing agent Marsha Finney says. “They added the second-floor master suite with great attention to detail and in keeping with the modern aesthetic.”
This second-floor master suite is, well, sweet. Would you rather sit out on your expansive balcony and gaze at the pool or soak in your spa-worthy bathtub? Decisions, decisions.
Finney tells us that the current owners do a lot of living in their favorite part of this 2,159-square-foot home: the screened-in porch. This large living space is “very Zen,” opening seamlessly to the main living room and fireplace. It looks out onto a bountiful backyard featuring a posh pool and lush landscaping. Even with all of this, the biggest selling point for this home is still its location.
“The street is beautiful, with many trees and a great variety of beautiful homes,” Finney says. “To the right there is a slight hill, and to the left you go under the bridge and you are at White Rock Lake in three minutes.”
The price for this walk-to-water sanctuary? $699,000.
