North Oak Lawn is a lovely neighborhood with parks and creeks, varied architecture, and a sense of community.

Today’s Tuesday Two Hundred is in the heart of North Oak Lawn, 4424 Holland Ave. Apt. 301, near Lemmon and Wycliffe avenues. This picturesque condo offers 1,053 square feet on two stories with two bedrooms, one full bathroom, one half bath, two balconies, and a private patio.picturesque condoThe Holland Avenue Condominiums were built in 1983, and both the building and this unit look fresh and well-maintained. From the hardwood floors and numerous built-ins, to generous bedrooms and an updated master bathroom, this condo offers a lot of amenities for under $300K.

It was listed Friday by Blake Damron at Clay Stapp + Co. for $249,000. Mandatory monthly HOA fees ring in at a reasonable $214, and include blanket insurance, exterior maintenance, maintenance of common areas, management fees, trash, and water/sewer. Let’s take a look inside!

That hallway leads into the open living room/dining room space straight ahead. This large room has three built-in bookshelves and measures 17-by-20, but feels bigger, even when it’s totally furnished. Part of that is the abundant natural sunlight coming from two sets of French doors and transom windows. The light-colored palette of the paint and wallpaper also help.

The wall where the media stand is located is slightly recessed, allowing those components to be unobtrusive in the room. The French doors lead out to the private patio, pictured below.4424 Holland U4424 Holland VWhat a cozy spot for morning coffee or an evening glass of wine. This patio is low maintenance, making the space even more enjoyable.

Some condo kitchens are positively dreary, obviously second thoughts in the planning of the space. But this kitchen looks like a place waiting to be used and loved. picturesque condo picturesque condo picturesque condo4424 Holland T 4424 Holland P 4424 Holland Q 4424 Holland R picturesque condoUpstairs, the two bedrooms offer an unusually large amount of built-in storage. In the master bedrooms, the entire wall next to the balcony door is closets; in the second bedroom, two more closets (and another balcony). The renovated master bathroom is modern and updated, with new tile and counters. Each bedroom has its own balcony, just right for relaxing and enjoying a drink.

This place went under active open contract within days of its listing. With all these amenities, a great location, and the overall sense of ease and charm, it’s no wonder. This condo is a great find.
