This historical Lakewood home within walking distance of White Rock Lake dates back almost 100 years

Pat J. Fraley

If you’re looking for a home with historic details, the Lakewood neighborhood of Dallas is a safe bet for classic designs. This Tudor-style home on coveted Tokalon Drive has original elements and has been maintained for nearly 100 years.

Built in 1925 on a 0.34-acre corner lot, the home has four bedrooms and four bathrooms in its 4,145 square feet. The home is across the street from Tokalon Park and isn’t far from the shoreline of White Rock Lake. You could easily take a walk to the Filter Building and access the trails around the lake.

Co-listing agent Natalie Hatchett said the home has “storybook charm”.

“So many homes these days are giant white boxes, and I love that each room is purposeful 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 home, with its vaulted ceilings and wood beam accents. A second-level landing has wood railing and overlooks the living space below. One side of the room has a small, wood-paneled alcove around the fireplace. Stained glass windows sit above the alcove, letting in softly-tinted light through the pastel designs.

You’ll find charming historic details throughout the home, like the fireplace in the dining room with a recessed book case on one side. The home has crown molding throughout, and there’s a set of windows along one side of the kitchen that surrounds a curved alcove.

The primary suite sits on the second level and has its own screened porch with views of the neighborhood park. There are vintage-looking soaking tubs in two of the bathrooms and fireplaces in many of the living spaces. Above the garage, there’s an additional living space that could be a home office or guest quarters.

The home has a pool, spa and space for outdoor seating on the back patio.

Becky Frey and Natalie Hatchett of Compass have the home at 7048 Tokalon Drive listed for $1,699,000.
