While perusing some of our newly added neighborhood guides, we came across a small one just north of Casa Linda Plaza that seemed perfectly appropriate for today’s holiday. Comprised of streets almost solely named after Irish locations, Lake Park Estates is teaming with mid-century homes (most with modern updates) and boasts close proximity to all that White Rock Lake has to offer.
Now, given the neighborhood’s small nature, and our determination to feature it on St. Patrick’s Day, only two our of three of these listings are truly within the boundaries of Lake Park Estates. We hope you can forgive us.
1176 Bally Mote Drive
Year Built: 1962
By the Numbers: 4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, 2,886 Square Feet
Highlights: The kitchen, you guys. The kitchen. It’s a place we want to be. It’s a place where we might actually want to cook. But on a more serious note, this is the kind of absolutely gorgeous remodel that melts our HGTV-loving hearts.
9915 Donegal Drive
Year Built: 1950
By the Numbers: 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, 1,411 Square Feet
Highlights: Maybe it’s because Full House is playing on a TV screen in this listing’s slideshow, but this cheery single-story house really looks like a home. (Good job, stagers!) Recent updates also give this ’50s home a current feel.
*Full disclosure: an offer has just been placed on this house, but sometimes sellers accept backup offers, and we also just really wanted to make this work.
936 Peavy Road
Year Built: 1956
By the Numbers: 3 Bedrooms, 1.1 Bathrooms, 1,110 Square Feet
Highlights: This mid-century modern makes the most of its limited square footage, creating a home that feels open, cool (thanks in part to some beautiful floors and contemporary bathrooms), and as interesting as its nature heavy surroundings.
