Won’t You Be My Neighbor – Dallas, TX

By RetroRuth

I’ve got a fun treat for you guys today! A great mid-century time capsule from Dallas, TX. The realtor writes:

Wonderful one-owner custom-built Mid-century Modern set on a one acre creek side wooded lot. Vaulted ceilings, clerestory windows, exposed beams, & walls of glass over looking the expansive yard with a path leading to a creek. Very cool Mad Man split level layout features spacious upper level master suite with balcony. Home even features a sewing room, workshop & a two car garage. Your own private modern retreat.

This house is being sold by Virginia Cook Realtors.  It was built in 1960, it is 2538 square feet with 4 bedrooms, 2 full and 1 half bath and the asking price is $199,900.



Lovely entrance with original details.




Formal living room.


Dining room with built-ins.

Master bath.

I am dying a little over these beds with hairpin legs!

    Wow, wow, wow. Dallas is looking super tempting now! Between the brick, the wood, the built-ins, and the gorgeous lines, I am absolutely drooling over this place!

    US house prices drive me nuts. In Melbourne, Australia we’re facing paying twice that much for a small 3br built in the 80s with no charm or style whatsoever. I want this house instead!
