This historic Lakewood home within walking distance of White Rock Lake dates back almost 100 years
If you’re looking for a home with historic details, Dallas’ Lakewood neighborhood is a safe bet for classic designs. This Tudor style home on coveted Tokalon Drive has original features and has been serviced for almost 100 years.
Built in 1925 on a 0.34 acre corner lot, the house has four bedrooms and four bathrooms on its 4,145 square feet. The house is across from Tokalon Park and not far from the shore of White Rock Lake. You can easily walk to the Filter Building and access the trails around the lake.
Co-registration agent Natalie Hatchett said the house had a “storybook charm.”
“So many houses these days are giant white boxes, and I love that every room is useful and preserved from an era of meaningful construction and attention to detail,” she wrote in a statement.
The living room is perhaps the grandest part of the house, with its vaulted ceilings and wooden beams. A second level landing has a wooden railing and leads into the living space below. One side of the room has a small paneled alcove around the fireplace. Stained glass windows sit above the alcove, letting in a slightly tinted light through the pastel patterns.
You will find charming historical details throughout the house, such as the fireplace in the dining room with a built-in bookcase to one side. The house has crown molding throughout, and there is a set of windows along one side of the kitchen that surrounds a curved alcove.
The master suite is on the second level and has its own screened porch overlooking the neighborhood park. There are vintage-looking tubs in two of the bathrooms and fireplaces in many of the living areas. Above the garage there is additional living space which could be a home office or guest quarters.
The house has a swimming pool, spa and space to sit outside on the back patio.
Compass’s Becky Frey and Natalie Hatchett have the home located at 7048 Tokalon Drive for $ 1,699,000.
