Midcentury style is made modern in the house at 3423 W. Pentagon Pkwy. in Oak Cliff. This preserved and updated Parkway Estates midcentury is marvelous, located across from a greenbelt near West Kiest Boulevard and South Westmoreland Road.
Our Tuesday Two Hundred will delight you with its original vintage features, married flawlessly to stylish renovations, like a totally updated kitchen. It has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, three living areas, two dining areas, and 1,822 square feet on one story, built in 1960.
Big bonus: the 300-square-foot sunroom with central HVAC is not included in house’s MLS size, and neither is the half bath in garage. Sweet!
Smart curb appeal charms with pink retro Roman brick, fresh landscaping, a turquoise door, and mature trees. Cute house, for sure.
Inside, the vintage entry features fabulous original metal screens and light fixture, small square tiles in shades of pink and tan, and new wallpaper that works perfectly with the mid-mod vibe. The front living-dining room area has light-colored refinished hardwoods, bay window, recessed lights, and a totally atomic era-style chandelier.
Further back, you’ll find the second living area with a painted brick fireplace, parquet floors, wood-beamed ceiling, recessed lights, and built-in bookshelves. This room is partially open to the totally chic kitchen.
OMG, this kitchen! Custom blue lower cabinets, white uppers, granite countertops, a breakfast bar, large-format tile floor, sleek hex tile backsplash, white farm sink, and stainless steel appliances, including a gas cooktop. It’s eat-in, so there’;s room for a breakfast table, which is staged with Saarinen tulip table and has a geometric glass-and-brass chandelier.
Walk into the master bedroom and find hardwoods, plenty of natural light, and an ensuite bathroom. This space offers hex floor tile, contemporary white floating vanity with dual sinks, and a huge walk-in shower with two shower systems with body sprays. Talk about an unexpected luxury: you almost never find a bathroom like this in a house under $300K.
The other two bedrooms, also with hardwood floors, share a hallway bathroom. This space offers updated style with penny tile floor, white subway tile tub surround, and a white vanity with lots of cabinets.
Now, let’s talk about that sunroom. Located just off the second living areas, it has its own thermostat and a wall of windows looking into the backyard.
This home was listed Oct. 20 by Kayaneh Wood with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s Real Estate for $299,000.
