As one of East Dallas’ established and popular neighborhoods, Ridgewood Park sees houses fly on and off the market with lightning speed. Our Thursday Three Hundred was just listed March 12, and it charms from every angle. Don’t expect this house to stick around long!
Located at 6462 Axton Ln. near Abrams Road and E. Lovers Lane, this California contemporary ranch just saw big renovations last year. On-trend updates include an open floorplan, Carrera Marble, designer paint colors, and fresh curb appeal with cute landscaping and mature trees.
With two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,280 square feet, this Ridgewood Park ranch is modest in size, but don’t let its tidy footprint fool you. This 1953 build packs in all the function and flow of a much larger property.
Part of the appeal of Ridgewood Park is its stellar location. Bounded by Lovers Lane, Abrams, Fisher Road, and the DART Blue Line on the south, the area is close to Greenville Avenue and its restaurants and the north shores of White Rock Lake. This house is just 7.4 miles from downtown Dallas and 6.6 miles from Love Field. Super convenient.
As the neighborhood association notes, “Dallas’ Ridgewood Park neighborhood is a well-maintained collection of classic mid-twentieth century homes. Built in the early 1950s, these charming homes have brick exteriors, tiled baths, hardwood floors, large yards, and mature trees.” This active association hosts family-centered activities like an Easter egg hunt, block parties, Halloween gathering, and July 4th parade.
The curb appeal includes a welcoming front porch with a swing and room for a second seating area, freshly painted brick, and thoughtful landscaping. One of the updates includes the driveway plus a coded iron gate.
Inside, the living and dining rooms flow easily into the open kitchen, where there are French doors with a small dog door leading to the backyard. In the kitchen, you’ll find granite countertops, lots of dark wood cabinets in a Shaker style, and stainless steel appliances, including a gas range. In the nearby laundry area, there’s a new LG stainless steel washer-dryer that convey with the sale.
The floorplan includes the two bedrooms, plus an office or nursery space. Hardwoods extend from the front rooms to the bedrooms. The two bathrooms are a bit small, but updated. The new guest bathroom has Carrera Marble, a frameless glass shower, and marvelous tile treatment. Closets in the house offer California closet systems.
In the backyard, there’s space for a wood deck and room for a pool, as well as raised beds and a rainwater catchment system.
