Hot off the press and new to the market, this mid-century modern jewel at 8538 Eustis Avenue is what puts Dallas real estate on the map. In a word: value.

Three bedrooms, two baths, vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors, and walls of windows in 1,536 square feet on a darling wooded and fenced Little Forest Hills lot. You also get a remodeled kitchen with Energy Starr Jenn-Aire stainless appliances less than a year old, new plumbing, new sewers (really important, actually), a brand new carport, and updated bathrooms with top Kohler fixtures: commode, tub, and sink.

Go outside and you'll find a 100 percent organic garden. This part of town is all about crunchy. The best part, to me, is that one thing you can never change: location. This little pup is mere blocks (a quick run) from White Rock Lake and will only set you back $246,500.

The agent, Ed Murchison of Virginia Cook, is known for his mid-century modern listings that often, even in this economy, are sold before they hit the market.
