This week, our houses range in price from $265K to $995K. You’ll find an original Cliff May midcentury modern masterpiece, pictured above, as well as a wonderful Vickery Place Craftsman with period details and modern updates, and more! Let’s take a look.
FABULOUS MIDCENTURY RANCH BY CLIFF MAY IN CASA VIEW OAKS, JUST LISTED TODAY
Open house: Sunday, Feb. 5, 2-4 p.m.
You might recognize the home at 2614 Andrea Ln. from a recent home tour — this is a Cliff May-designed house that’s simply marvelous. It’s one of only 39 May houses in Dallas, and this one, located near Oates Drive and Ferguson Road in Casa View Oaks, is priced to sell, well under $300K. It has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,342 square feet with an additional 264 square feet of finished out space beside the garage where the carport once was, all built in 1955 and fully updated in 2011.
The open floorplan is full of light with signature clerestory windows and restored hardwoods, sitting on an elevated and treed lot. Updates include a custom kitchen, a new 30-year architectural roof, new electrical in both house and garage, custom doors and fixtures, new lighting and plumbing fixtures, smooth walls, and a new fence. The kitchen features Bosch appliances, marble countertops, custom maple cabinets, and a large island. The house retains its original glass and each window is fully functional.

WONDERFUL VICKERY PLACE CRAFTSMAN WITH PERIOD DETAILS, MODERN UPDATES
Open house: Sunday, Feb. 5, 1:30-3 p.m.
Is there anything as charmed as an original Craftsman? We love the one at 5600 Richard Ave., near Richmond and Greenville avenues in Vickery Place. This 1,950-square-foot beauty offers lots of period details, like tall ceilings, mouldings, original fireplace, and hardwoods, with modern updates, like renovated bathrooms and a fresh kitchen. This home has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, built in 1923. A rarity for a home built in this era: there’s a detached two-car garage in back, including a workbench and cabinets.
The living room is lovely, with that original fireplace flanked by classic built-in cabinets and lots of windows for natural light. There’s a sunlit study nearby and a spacious kitchen with a butler’s pantry, lots of white cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and a walk-out to the mud room with a full-sized washer-dryer space. The master bath features two vanities, walk-in shower with frameless glass door, and a walk-in closet with built-in shelves and a dresser. The guest bath offers a claw-foot tub with classic subway tile and upgraded shower hardware.
This home was listed Jan. 21 by Laura Beazley with Laura Beazley Realtors for $505,000.
