Nearly 100-Year-Old Lakewood Home Is as Lovely as Ever Thanks to a Respectful Reno

Imagine what the original owners would say about the Dallas of today…

Everyone familiar with East Dallas knows the allure of Lakewood Boulevard. This beautiful stretch of street lingers for blocks and features some of the most charming homes in all of Dallas. Someone new is going to get to experience the street firsthand as the owners of 6427 Lakewood Boulevard are ready to pass the keys. And luckily for the aforementioned future owners, this lovely listing has been respectfully renovated.

The most striking update to this 1925 construction has to be its incredible kitchen. A nice balance of dark and light brings this space to life and is sure to be an absolute dream to cook in. From the commercial-grade gas range to the large marble island and storage galore, this kitchen officially has it all.

Other updates that will make you drool include a perfect primary suite that features an oversized bathroom, large walk-in closet, and even a sitting area. We also think that it is important to note that this Tudor has five, yes five, bedrooms. It also has an upstairs living room and game room with flex space that could be perfect for a home gym. All of this space in a traditional Tudor? Are we dreaming? Have we found a unicorn property?

Other features to consider that are not as easy to note in pictures alone consist of Pella windows, solid core doors, a new roof, plumbing, electrical, and HVAC. Not to mention the lush landscape. We also must note its zoning to Lakewood Elementary which is easily one of the most buzzed-about primary schools in the city. Pair this with its walkability to Whole Foods, Lakewood Country Club, and countless other attractions, and the list of positives for this property might just require a second page.
