ELEGANT TURTLE CREEK CONDO WITH VIEWS OF DALLAS SKYLINE

Open house: Sunday, March 27, 2-4 p.m.
The 1965 cottage at 11730 Farrar St. in East Dallas’ Lochwood neighborhood is so cute! Look at that curb appeal!

GLENRIDGE ESTATES REMODELED RANCH-STYLE COTTAGE WITH HUGE SPACES
Open house: Saturday, March 26, 1-3 p.m.
The modest exterior of this Glenridge Estates ranch-style cottage in East Dallas doesn’t do justice to the truly adorable and elegant interior space. Located at 4041 Beechwood Ln., this house is a 3-2 with an additional half bathroom and 2,034 square feet, built in 1951. That’s a huge Midcentury home!
It is completely remodeled with hardwoods throughout, and a large open living, dining, and family room areas. The kitchen is open to these areas with a transitional look, stainless steel appliances, white Carrera Marble counters and custom backsplash, on-trend white cabinets with soft-close, and a double-door pantry. Look at how enormous the master looks! It has a sitting area, double closets, and a beautifully updated bathroom with white Carrera Marble everywhere.
This home was listed on March 19 by Jacob Moss with Keller Williams—Park Cities for $499,999.
PICTURESQUE STEVENS PARK COTTAGE IN NORTH OAK CLIFF, REDUCED $16K
Open house: Saturday, March 26, 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Stevens Park Village is one of North Oak Cliff’s most picturesque neighborhoods, with arching shade trees, wide medians, friendly parks, awesome views of downtown Dallas, and tons of charming homes.
We wrote about the 1940 cottage at 2318 W. Colorado Blvd. back in January, and it is still on the market. It’s so cute! This is a 3-2 with 1,922 square feet. It offers hardwoods in most common areas and the bedrooms, and has two living rooms, two dining rooms, and updates in the kitchen and one of the bathroom, as well as a new two-car garage. The master is separated from the other two bedrooms for privacy and has a walk-in closet with a custom closet system. There are original built-ins in the formal dining room, and the kitchen was taken to the studs for a redesign.
The second family room opens to a deck area in the backyard. The white tile is practical, but not the prettiest option for the room. But that’s a cosmetic fix, if new owners don’t like it.
It was listed Dec. 29 by Callan Harrison with Allie Beth Allman and Associates for $365K, reduced recently to $349,000.
