Northwest Dallas is full of family-friendly neighborhoods where buyers can get a lot of home for their money.
Our Thursday Three Hundred at 3462 Flair Dr. is in one of these areas, Park Forest. This is a late-1950s neighborhood in Northwest Dallas, bounded by Forest Lane on the north, Northaven on the south, Marsh Lane on the east, and Cromwell on the west. With mature trees, wide lawn, and Midcentury Modern homes, Park Forest is a charming place to call home.
Our home today is a 3-3 with 2,342 square feet, built in 1959, and located near Forest and Marsh lanes. It is across the street from DeGolyer Elementary School and Webb Chapel Park, and close to the Dallas North Tollway, which gives easy access to downtown, Uptown, Frisco, and other areas of DFW.
This is a recently updated one-story home with handscraped wood floors, an open floorplan, vaulted ceilings with wood beams, a custom fire place, and updated chef’s kitchen with stainless steel appliances and a gas cooktop.
This home was listed Dec. 4 by Johnny Mowad with Ebby Halliday, Realtors, for $350,000.
Like the other homes in Park Forest, this house has lots of mature trees, nice landscaping, and great curb appeal. The exterior is freshly painted, and all the windows are new and energy efficient. The renovated front porch has a new, wood front door that look stylish.
The home has quite a few energy-efficient features, in addition to the low-e windows, including a gas water heater, ceiling fans, 12-inch attic insulation, a 13-15 SEER AC, programmable thermostat, and low-flow fixtures. The entryway opens directly onto the formal living area, and because of the open floorplan, leads to the dining room. This is an impressive space, with vaulted ceiling and wood beams, handscraped wood floors, fresh paint and light fixtures, and a painted brick fireplace with a custom metal screen. Natural light is one of the home’s best accessories, and it’s flooded with it. The kitchen is a total renovation, opened to the living area. It now offers granite counters, white subway tile backsplash, fresh white cabinets, and stainless steel appliances, including double ovens and a gas cooktop. The attached breakfast area offers a second area for eating. The three bedrooms in this home are oversized with walk-in closets. The master has those same handscraped hardwoods, and the other two have new beige carpet. The master bath received a total renovation, with a large walk-in frameless glass shower and waterfall showerhead above, a granite-topped vanity with dual sinks, a jetted tub, and new fixtures and accessories.
The other two bathrooms are also renovated in a similar style, with granite-topped vanities, new shower areas, new tile, fixtures, and accessories.
The home also offers a large media room with projection screen and bar area with sink and space for a small beverage refrigerator. A good-sized backyard offers a lot of entertaining options, with a small patio and grassy space. There’s also an attached two-car garage.
