Bud Oglesby’s architectural work is a Dallas treasure, and we have lots of it. Today’s Tuesday Two Hundred is a Oglesby-designed townhome in the heart of the Oak Lawn neighborhood.
Located at 2727 Hood St. Apt. 107, this townhome is a midcentury modern masterpiece, built in 1964 and extensively updated in a way that adds to the character of the era’s architecture and adds the kind of modern amenities buyers love. And it’s well under $300K, so don’t expect this one to stay on the market long.
The design is contemporary, with an open living and dining room, a dreamy kitchen, and gorgeous bathrooms. This unit has two bedrooms, one full bathroom, one half bath, and 972 square feet on two stories. Let’s take a look!
Located near Oak Lawn Avenue and Cedar Springs Road, this townhome is a short stroll from the 41-acre Reverchon Park with a rec center, garden area, baseball field and basketball court, playground, sand volleyball court, tennis court, and trails. It’s also a hop, skip, and jump from Katy Trail, Turtle Creek, and the shops, clubs, and restaurants on Cedar Springs. This address earns an “80” out of 100 walk score from walkscore.com, meaning it’s very walkable and most errands can be accomplished on foot.
This Bud Oglesby townhome is compact in size, but flows beautifully, thanks to the open floorplan, natural light, and great design plan. From the entryway, you walk straight ahead to the living room/dining room area. Its aggregate flooring that mimics the look of terrazzo, creating a true midcentury feel. One one end of the space, there’s gorgeous custom LED side-lit cherry wood paneling with built in cherry cabinetry. Low-E double sliding doors lead to a private fenced patio.
The small kitchen packs everything you could need, including sleek style, into its pint size. There’s a glass subway tile backsplash, gray lacquer cabinets, quartz counters, cherry wood accents on the ceiling, and stainless steel appliances, including a gas range.
White oak hardwoods on the stairs lead to the bedrooms, where the hardwoods continue. On the second-floor landing is with contemporary honed granite and pierced metal door storage area. The master bath features honed granite countertops with double sinks, custom cherry cabinetry, glass subway tile, Carrera Marble floors, a soaking tub, and back-lit mirrors.
