Near West Kiest Boulevard and South Westmoreland Road in Oak Cliff is the established neighborhood of Westwood Park. We found our Tuesday Two Hundred here at 3228 Cedarcroft Ln. This extensive remodel has turned a drab ranch into a fab budget find with lots of space and style.
Located 6 miles southwest of the Bishop Arts District and 9 miles from downtown Dallas, this home has a list of updates a mile long, from new roof, double pane windows, exterior doors, and fence, to updated plumbing, electric, and recently serviced HVAC. The house has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, three living areas, two dining areas, and 2,090 square feet on one story, built in 1958.
The Westwood Park neighborhood is close to Kiest Park, one of the area’s big amenities. This 263-acre park offers a rec center, playground, trails, softball, basketball, soccer, tennis, sand volleyball, and garden areas.
The curb appeal of this house has made a huge leap from unremarkable to striking. The owners trimmed up existing trees and bushes, added some fresh landscaping and beds, painted the brick, and added new columns and house numbers to the exterior.
Inside, this home offers a newly opened floorplan made beautiful by hardwood floors that extend through most of the common areas and bedrooms — no carpet in sight. There’s fresh paint in a palette of whites and greys and new recessed lights, as well. The front living room features a stone-clad wood burning fireplace that looks contemporary and cozy.
A renovated kitchen delights with white Shaker-style cabinets, granite countertops, white subway tile backsplash, breakfast bar, new fixtures, and stainless steel appliances, including a gas range.
Unexpectedly, this home offers two master suites, one with an ensuite bathroom. That space is huge, with a contemporary soaker tub, wall of modern tile, and dual sinks on the granite-topped vanity. The other two bathrooms echo that look with granite countertops and white Shaker-style cabinets.
The backyard has huge mature trees and a privacy fence, but the rest of it is a bit of a blank slate, ready for the next owner’s personal touch.
This home was listed July 18 by Mary Spaulding with JP & Associates — Plano for $299,999, reduced to $289,999.
