IMPRESSIVE HILL HAVEN HEIGHTS MIDCENTURY MODERN ON ALMOST HALF AN ACRE
Open house: Saturday, Nov. 11, 2-4 p.m., and Sunday, Nov. 12, 2-4 p.m.
Sitting on 0.45 acres in North Dallas’ Hill Haven Heights neighborhood, the 1956 beauty at 7723 Midbury Dr. has serious midcentury curb appeal cred and an interior renovation that’s sleek and transitional. The house has five bedrooms, four full bathrooms, two half baths, two living areas, two dining areas, a home office, and 3,956 square feet on one story.
This home was taken down to the studs and renovated with top-of-the-line custom work throughout and an open floorplan in the common areas. Some of the updates include new hardwoods, roof, whole-home wiring, and insulation. The floor-to-ceiling slate fireplace surround is gorgeous in the living room, and the clean lines of the kitchen impress. Think dual islands with quartz countertops and waterfall edges, flat-front cabinets, and stainless steel Thermador appliances, including double ovens. The master suite has an impressive custom closet and gorgeous bath with contemporary soaker tub, huge shower, dual sinks, and cabinets that match the kitchen. In back, there’s a covered patio with recessed lights, mature trees, privacy fence, and room for a swimming pool, should future owners want.
This Hill Haven Heights home was listed Sept. 29 by Kelli Todd with Ebby Halliday Realtors for $1.4 million, reduced to $1.295 million.
LOVELY KESSLER PARK TUDOR WITH SWIMMING POOL, GUEST HOUSE
Open house: Sunday, Nov. 12, 1-3 p.m.
The Tudor at 1110 Lausanne Ave. is located on one of the most beautiful streets in North Oak Cliff’s Kessler Park neighborhood. Like so many of the homes in the area, it exudes character and good looks, with manicured landscaping and a gorgeous facade. This home has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 2,494 square feet on two stories, built in 1928.
Hardwoods run through much of the house, along with many original and period details that delight. The owners opened up the living room to have more space and a more modern feel, and the coffered ceiling is eye-catching. An expansive eat-in kitchen features newer KitchenAid appliances and granite countertops. All three bedrooms are ensuite and the largest takes up the entire second floor with a large shower, cedar closet, and private balcony overlooking the recently re-done swimming pool. Love the backyard with its fieldstone paving, multiple entertaining areas, plus a 471-square-foot guest house with its own HVAC, kitchenette, and full bath.
