3446 Saint Cloud a

Northwest Dallas is one of the hottest areas in Dallas when it comes to home renovations and flips. These residential properties, largely built in the 1950s and 60s, offer nice-sized footprints for stylish, refreshed digs, and lots of folks are taking advantage with engaging results.

Our Thursday Three Hundred, located at 3446 Saint Cloud Cir. near Forest and Marsh lanes, offers a beautiful combination of up-to-date character and old-fashioned charm. Sitting on over a third of an acre on a cul-de-sac, this 1959 ranch has four bedrooms, two full bathrooms, one half bathroom, and 2,491 square feet on one story.

It has been tastefully—and thoroughly—renovated, resulting in a cohesive, curated look. The rooms flow easily from one space to the next, and the clean lines and natural light make the home feel spacious.

There’s an open house this Sunday from 1-3 p.m. Let’s take a peek before then.

The Park Forest home at 3610 Weeburn Dr. was only on the market for one day before going under contract last week. Little wonder, with its Midcentury vibe, recent updates, and desirous neighborhood.

But that contract fell through and it’s back on the market as of Dec. 13.park forest homeThis is a 3-2 with 2,091 square feet on a large corner lot with arching shade trees in Northwest Dallas.

Could your neighborhood, on its own, make enough noise to get the city to pay attention?

A few months ago, I attended a break-out session during the Dallas Homeowners League boot camp where Councilman Philip Kingston outlined the best ways to get the city’s attention when it comes to the needs of individual neighborhoods.

One of the biggest, he said that day, was to join forces with surrounding neighborhoods to organize and become a louder, bigger entity. It’s something Donovan Lord says drove him and others to form the Westhollow Society a few years ago.

“I started Westhollow Society out of a need for a cohesive force to better the Northwest Dallas area,” he explained. “I wanted there to be one organization that pulled the clout of all existing neighborhoods within our defined boundaries to work together to improve the area South of LBJ, North of Walnut Hill, West of Midway, and East of Dennis Road (roughly).”

In other words, Westhollow encompasses Park Forest, Royal Hills, Sparkman Club, Timberbrook, Royal Oaks, Royal North, Underwood, Northaven Park, Glen Cove, Highland Meadows, Coral Hills, Webster Grove, Walnut Hills, Royal Haven, Chapel Forest, Chapel Downs, Walnut Meadows, Northway Hills, Midway Hills, and Meadow Park.
