Listing agent DeCarla Anderson with Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate says this midcentury modern home in the Glen Oaks neighborhood in Oak Cliff is a jewel, and it looks like she’s right.

This three-bedroom, two-bath home at 824 Town Creek Dr. has been updated, but still carries all the hallmarks of a midcentury home, with floor-to-ceiling windows that provide a perfect view of the beautiful backyard, vintage style lighting, cedar ceilings and more. The kitchen has been updated with a gas stove and granite countertops, and the bathrooms have been updated as well. The floors have been refinished, too.

And bonus, you’re close to Bishop Arts, the Golf Club of Dallas, and Wynnewood Village Shopping Center.

The home is listed for $358,900.

This completely renovated 1927 bungalow in the Kidd Springs neighborhood of Oak Cliff is the perfect family home, from its open-concept family room to its bright, airy eat-in kitchen.

The three-bedroom, two-bath home at 1411 North Madison Ave. also features a dining room with the original fireplace, and both bathrooms have been given major overhauls with custom showers.  And while it might seem silly to get swoony over a laundry room, we’re swoony over the laundry room, too.

The home is set on a substantial .23 acre lot, and is close to plenty of amenities, including Bishop Arts, DART rail, and Lake Cliff Park (in fact, it’s about a two-block walk to this gorgeous city park). You’re also less than three miles from downtown.

Have kids? It’s across the street from Hogg Elementary (with it’s phenomenal programs that include two-way dual language Spanish immersion and more.

Shelly Fairfield with Keller Williams Realty is the listing agent for this home, which is priced at $425,000.
