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.

West Kessler Heights Austin Stone Home | CandysDirt.com

There seems to be a new trend in real estate photography, and that’s shooting a property more like an interior design magazine. It creates a romantic, beautiful view of a home, with lots of close-ups of the pretty staging details.

Our Thursday Three Hundred is the recipient of this style of photography, and the results are lovely. Located at 714 N. Hampton Rd., this Austin stone traditional sits pretty on an elevated lot in North Oak Cliff’s West Kessler Heights. Built in 1941, it retains classic architectural details of the era, like original hardwoods and arched doorways, married with more modern updates, like a renovated kitchen.

Located near W. Davis Street and N. Hampton Road, this home has three bedrooms, one full bathroom, one half bathroom, and 1,765 square feet on two stories with mature landscaping and charmed curb appeal (seriously, look at that house! Don’t you want to see more?). Let’s get started.
