East Dallas is a ‘hot’ home market, firm says

It is not surprising that East Dallas has become one of Dallas’ hottest markets, according to Allie Beth Allman and Associates, with residents of all ages attracted to its green spaces, active lifestyle and location close to downtown and White Rock Lake.

Here are two East Dallas homes on the market.

The renovated three-bedroom Austin stone design at 5923 Winton St. is close to Mockingbird Elementary School. Offered by Nancy Lukken, this residence features a double-car rear-entry garage and an extra parking spot. The interior provides $40,000 in updates and air conditioning that was installed in 2016. Two bathrooms were remodeled with period tile and Kohler fixtures. The kitchen has stainless-steel appliances, double ovens, a custom-built pantry and pull-out storage. Relax on the patio or front porch and let the sprinkler system maintain the landscaped yard.
