Thursday Three Hundred: East Lake Highlands Modern Offers Dazzling Aesthetic

8676 Langdale AHidden in East Lake Highlands near Northwest Highway and Plano Road is one of the largest collections of modern houses in Dallas, and some are still affordable, like the listing at 8676 Langdale Circle.

Designed by architect Jack R. Yardley and built in 1976, this looker is listed by Brandon Stewart with David Griffin & Company for $360,000.

Located on a corner lot in the secluded enclave of Mediterranean Gardens, this house is a 2-2 with 1,795 square feet, designed by Yardley for his then mother-in-law while he lived next door. (more…)

Look at this adorable mid century steeped, just dang Lipton-tea steeped in the 1960’s. In fact, when I saw the photos of the bathroom at 2922 Gladiolus  — Ed Murchison, my mid century modern genius, always loads up lots of photos, even of the commodes — I had deja vue. It reminded me of all the time I spent “sitting” in my aunt’s bathroom. Swear those are the same cabinets, maybe even the same commode! (Let’s hope it’s not the same toilet paper.)  One-owner custom-built set on a one acre creek side wooded lot in Bretton Woods, near Ledbetter. Also guess what this home is near: the Dallas Executive Airport which is getting busier as a private jet FBO. Oh be still my heart: vaulted ceilings, clerestory windows, exposed beams, & walls of glass over looking the expansive, wooded yard with a path leading to a creek. Total Mad Man split level features spacious upper level master suite with balcony. Vitals: 4 bedrooms, 2 and a half baths, 2538 square feet. All that plus a sewing room, workshop & two car garage. And did we make a mistake on the price? No sir, $199,900. Will. Not. Last.
