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.
Mature trees, a new circular driveway, manicured landscaping, and a contemporary entry door create attractive curb appeal of this Park Forest home. The neighborhood, established in 1958 and currently at about 200 properties, is full of Fox and Jacobs homes from that era, when the builder was creating forward-thinking midcentury houses in this part of Northwest Dallas.
Park Forest is a family-friendly neighborhood, with a community swimming pool and the Webb Chapel Park. This is 7.5 acres of green space with an outdoor basketball court, pavilion, playground, picnic tables, and soccer field.
The entryway of this home opens into the first living room, a bright, welcoming space with three parallel vertical windows. Hardwoods start in the entryway and carry through the home, except for the kitchen and bathrooms, where there is tile.
One room over is the second living room, anchored by a large brick fireplace and accented by a wall of built-in bookshelves. In the same large, open space is the dining area; this partially open floorplan is flexible and offers appealing architectural details, like a vaulted ceiling.
The kitchen received huge renovations, and now features Shaker-style white cabinets, a glass tile backsplash, granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances, including a convection oven. Nearby is the separate utility room, where there are hookups for full-size washer-dryer and room for a freezer.
The master bedroom measures 17-by-12 and has a custom closet system. Two of the secondary bedrooms are split, with built-in cabinets/desk areas. All are good-sized, coming in around 13-by-12, give or take a foot.
In the backyard, you’ll find lots of grassy green space, mature trees, a sprinkler system, and a large patio.
This home was listed Oct. 7 by Cathy Guasque with Virginia Cook, Realtors for $349,000.
