Stevens Park Village

Graceful, stylish living claims its space as our Thursday Three Hundred, a 1941 stone cottage in North Oak Cliff’s Stevens Park Village.

Sitting on an elevated lot, the property at 2311 Lawndale Dr. is one of the original houses in the area. It retains an authentic feel of that era with its architectural details and some vintage features. But the owners’ recent renovations brought it up to date and created the kind of features that make buyers speed-dial their Realtor. Think marble hexagon tile in the guest bathroom, rich cabinetry in the kitchen (and plenty of it), and refinished original hardwoods.

“There’s a very nice layout and for the size of the house, you’re getting a lot of openness,” said listing agent Ged Dipprey with Dave Perry-Miller Intown. “There’s great flow from living to dining room with an original arch that opens into the kitchen.”

The marriage between original and updated is flawless in this two-bedroom, two-bathroom cottage. Its 1,544 square feet are indeed well appointed and create the perception of much more space.

Ridgewood Park

As one of East Dallas’ established and popular neighborhoods, Ridgewood Park sees houses fly on and off the market with lightning speed. Our Thursday Three Hundred was just listed March 12, and it charms from every angle. Don’t expect this house to stick around long!

Located at 6462 Axton Ln. near Abrams Road and E. Lovers Lane, this California contemporary ranch just saw big renovations last year. On-trend updates include an open floorplan, Carrera Marble, designer paint colors, and fresh curb appeal with cute landscaping and mature trees.

With two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,280 square feet, this Ridgewood Park ranch is modest in size, but don’t let its tidy footprint fool you. This 1953 build packs in all the function and flow of a much larger property.
