House For Sale
Grab this '60s East Dallas home with only one owner before flippers get it
A '60s house in East Dallas with only one owner that's basically untouched is on the market at a great deal of a price.
Located at 2323 Homeway Cir., it's a three-bedroom, two-bathroom home built in 1969, with 1,802 square feet and an attached two-car garage.
The listing describes it as "lovingly maintained," with a gracious floor plan, generous sized rooms, and "lots of charm throughout."
It sits on a spacious 8,842-square-foot lot with mature trees, that's minutes to Casa Linda, White Rock Lake, and Lake Highlands.
Although the interior is mostly untouched, it's had numerous updates including:
- new roof in 2021
- hot water heater 2016
- furnace in 2014
- new AC in 2016
- new electrical panel in 2010
So they took care of some of the important infrastructure, although it says it's for sale as-is, so there could be other surprises.
Still, with all of those updates, if you were someone who appreciated the original '60s wood-paneling and could remain open-minded to the quaint wallpaper and were able to see that Formica countertops are really wiser in a kitchen than granite and loved a vintage wall oven, why then it would almost be move-in ready. Might want to replace the carpeting.
The bathrooms are not '50s-era pastels although they do have vintage 4-inchX4-inch tile, but the countertops are granite, and one of them has an Art Deco-style black-with-white-flowers wallpaper that doesn't look all that dated.
A house built in 1969 is perhaps not innately venerable but it's still in great shape and it would be so much more righteous if the house were purchased by someone who liked it for what it was, rather than a flipper who is just going to wipe it clean and replace it with non-period stuff.
The current seller is the original owner.
Listed by Allie Beth Allman & Associates, it's priced at $219,000, and as the listing indicates, it has already received multiple offers. They're calling for the best offer by Sunday, March 19 at 3 pm.
