Architect-designed living isn’t just for the wealthy. We’ve found a midcentury condo for under $200K, designed by Bud Oglesby, one of the most important Dallas modernist architects of the 20th century.
Oglesby and his firm, Oglesby Greene Architects, were creators of the Mahanna Condos at 3116 Mahanna St. in Oak Lawn. Apartment 5 just went on the market and it’s a beautiful example of his work.
Located near Cedar Springs Road and the Dallas North Tollway, these condos were built in 1958 and offer a lovely midcentury aesthetic on the exterior. This is an intimate, private, gated complex with landscaped common areas and a swimming pool.
This condo has two bedrooms, one full bathroom, one half bathroom, and 1,073 square feet on one story. Let’s take a look!
The It’s My Mansion column at CandysDirt.com celebrates affordable real estate in a market where it’s getting harder to find. These properties are always under $200K and offer excellent options for budget-friendly buys.
This condo is immaculate and updated, with bamboo floors, new hardware, new lighting, new cabinetry, and contemporary frosted glass doors throughout. The kitchen features granite counters and stainless steel appliances, and is conveniently located off the living area. There’s a study off the living area, as well, with French doors overlooking the landscaped pool area.
Both bathrooms are marvelous and updated with elevated contemporary basins, round mirrors, and cool tile treatments. The master bathroom features a glass-enclosed shower. The master bedroom is a serene space, painted a deep gray, with walk-in closets and a custom closet system.
This condo was listed Dec. 8 by Althea Wayne with Ambiance Realty for $199,995. Monthly HOA dues are $373 and include front and backyard maintenance, blanket insurance, exterior maintenance, full use of facilities, management fees, sprinkler system, and trash.
