Oak Park Estates is one of the on-the-rise neighborhoods of Oak Cliff, and today’s Thursday Three Hundred is a great example of midcentury style in the heart of the area.
Renovated with care and attention to era, 1632 Hanging Cliff Cir. is a house with a lot of personality and character. This brick two-story sits on a quiet cul-de-sac, just blocks from Kiest Park and Five Mile Creek. The backyard offers a lush feel, with a privacy fence and pretty landscaping.
This home has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living areas, two dining areas, and 1,928 square feet on two stories. Let’s take a look!
In a lot of midcentury homes, updates over the years strip away the character of the era. But the owners of this Oak Park Estates home concerned themselves with authenticity and making sure the structure of the home was good. One great example? The Johnsonite turquoise and red solid vinyl flooring in the kitchen and dining areas, a pattern from the 1960s. They scored the last of it in Texas with an extra box for future owners. Very retro.
The other common areas and the downstairs master bedroom have hardwood floors. Secondary bedrooms upstairs have new carpeting. The partially open floorplan flows well on the first floor, leading to the living room with its large stone fireplace.
A true labor of love by the owners, the renovated kitchen features those turquoise floors and white KitchenAid appliances with white cabinets and white subway tile backsplash.
In back, the yard is sloping with good drainage, and the owners built a storage shed and kept up the landscaping well. The privacy fence is as high as is allowed in this area, and the yard feels secluded. The oversized two-car garage features a workbench and some fixtures that make homebrewing easier, a bonus for a hobbyist.
This home was listed June 16 by Jenni Stolarski with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty for $315,000, reduced today to $299,999 (we’ll let that dollar slide and keep it as our Thursday Three Hundred!).
