Our Thursday Three Hundred, a gorgeous renovation in Wynnewood North, shows the powers of great design in marketing a home just hitting the market. This beauty went under contract in two days!
Located at 527 S. Manus Dr. near West Claredon Drive and South Zang Boulevard in North Oak Cliff, this midcentury ranch was masterfully renovated by Oak Cliff residents Jen and Matt Zafros of CO/co. to combine contemporary convenience and period character. The bright, open floorplan has updated windows and doors, refinished original hardwoods throughout, a period brick fireplace, and updated master bathroom. The kitchen is the focal point of the home, with incredible farmhouse style and modern conveniences.
This home has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,980 square feet on one story, built in 1954.
This home sits on a hill on a third of an acre overlooking the greenbelt in Wynnewood North. The curb appeal is cute, with midcentury ranch architecture: brick walls, built-in flower boxes, iron columns, and deep eaves. A welcoming front porch overlooks the greenbelt and offers updated windows and a period front door with Emtek satin brass hardware.
Inside, the entryway opens directly onto the open concept living and dining room with views to the greenbelt, recessed lighting, original hardwoods, and great flow. The dining room can easily accommodate a table for up to ten guests.
This leads to the star of the show, the completely reimagined kitchen. This light and bright space is made even more so by a rear wall punctuated with large new windows and a set of French doors to the backyard. It features geometric brass pendant lighting over the breakfast bar on the oversized island, slatted white walls, walk-in pantry, quartz countertops, satin brass hardware, sleek white cabinets, and stainless steel appliances, including a six-burner Wolf gas range.
The family room features original built-in shelves and cabinets, as well as a large fireplace. A door leads to the attached two-car garage from this room. A nearby guest bathroom is a throwback to the 1950s with its original tile and pristine condition.
The large front bedroom overlooks the greenbelt and features original hardwoods and great closet space. The middle bedroom features original built-ins and would also work well as a home office. The rear master bedroom has backyard views from windows on three sides. Its master bath is totally renovated with a dual vanity, walk-in frameless glass shower, and designer tile.
Finally, let’s look at the oversized backyard. It has mature trees and a paved entertaining area with direct access to the family room and kitchen.
This home was listed Oct. 15 by Brian Davis with Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate for $389,900.
