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.

lochwood meadows

Lochwood Meadows is one of three sub-neighborhoods in the lovely East Dallas neighborhood of Lochwood. This area near White Rock Lake is on a greenbelt, with lots of mature trees, wildlife, and a lush feel. Most of the homes here were built in the 1960s.

Our Thursday Three Hundred just hit the market in Lochwood Meadows, located at 12003 Brookmeadow Ln. near Northwest Highway and Jupiter Road. It is a short walk to Lochwood Park, a 12.3-acre green space with a playground, baseball field, basketball court, picnic tables, swimming pool, tennis court, and trails.

This house is updated and light-filled, with three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, one half bath, two living areas, a study, and 1,978 square feet on one story, built in 1965. Let’s take a look!

Lake Ridge Estates

Color can be a beautiful thing. We’re often told to repaint our homes to a neutral palette when selling to appeal to as many buyers as possible. But some sellers buck that trend and keep the varied hues in their house. The results can be memorable.

Our Thursday Three Hundred will color you happy with its navy blue living room, sage green kitchen, bright bedrooms, and stripes on some walls and ceilings. It even has vintage lavender tiles in one bathroom.

Located at 9847 Shoreview Rd. in Lake Highlands’ Lake Ridge Estates, this property exudes personality and style with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,704 square feet on one story, built in 1958. No one who visits this house will get it mixed up in their memory with another.

Of course, there are lots of other selling features, like hardwood floors in the common areas and bedrooms, slate tile in the kitchen, an updated kitchen with gorgeous granite countertops, recent HVAC replacement, and a fantastic location near Northwest Highway and Audelia Road. It’s a hop, skip, and jump from the north shores of White Rock Lake and Flag Pole Hill. Bonus: it’s in the attendance zone for Hexter Elementary, which earns a “9” out of 10 from greatschools.org.

North Davilla Drive

Midway Hollow is a big star among affordable Dallas neighborhoods. Lots of houses there, like our Thursday Three Hundred, have been totally remodeled to look fresh and modern, but still ring in under $400K.

Located at 3770 Dunhaven Rd. near Walnut Hill and Marsh Lanes in the North Davilla Drive neighborhood, this home is beautifully done with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,413 square feet on one story, built in 1951. It has hardwood floors and fresh paint throughout, with a new kitchen and master bathroom, among other areas.  There’s a partially open floorplan, and a great backyard. Let’s take a look!

Lake Park Estates

We love a good “before and after,” and today’s Thursday Three Hundred is a beautiful example of renovations done right.

The home at 1010 Tipperary Dr. just hit the market Monday morning, with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, built in 1953. The owners updated the entire space, but the kitchen received the most dramatic transformation. It went from clunky and outdated to dreamy and bright with lots of desirable amenities. Kitchens sell houses, and the owners put their renovation dollars in the right places with their work in 2015.

Located in Lake Park Estates, this home is near N. Buckner Boulevard and E. Lake Highlands Drive. The smart layout maximizes the modest footprint and it feels much bigger than its 1,286 square feet, in part due to the abundant natural light, fresh paint in shades of white, and crisp plantation shutters. This listing won’t last long, so let’s take a look before it gets snatched up.
