Dallas: Lakewood House With 5BR and Huge Porch, $1.5M
Not that I have that much money to spend on a house, but this five-bedroom, five-bath house of 5,774 square feet looks perfect at that price.
The house is in the Lakewood neighborhood in East Dallas, a neighborhood I've written about before here at HousingWatch. The neighborhood is popular with people who want to be near city life but don't like a lot of traffic. The area and nearby White Rock Lake are also popular with cyclists, runners and hikers.
The home was built in 1981 and is on a half acre of land, with a pool and recently updated with granite, travertine, carpet and paint. The home, according to the real estate agent, has been selected for a new reality show, and is part of the Lakewood Home Tour selection. It's popular with location scouts who have used the home for numerous commercial shoots.
That tells you a lot about the house, that it looks grand enough for location scouts to like, but what really sells me is the wraparound porch. I can easily see myself relaxing on a couch, rocking chair or swing outside. If only I had the $1.49 million.
Similar homes in the neighborhood have an average for sale price of $1,121,000. A nearby home for sale at 6707 Lake Circle Drive is offered at $899,000 for four bedrooms and four bathrooms in 4,884 square feet.
