Listed Today: Brilliant Elmwood Reno Offers Expanded Floorplan, High-end Design

All eyes are on Elmwood, it seems, as investors make big waves in this historic Oak Cliff neighborhood. 

Our Thursday Three Hundred at 2210 Melbourne Ave. is an example of a flip done right in Elmwood, with sleek style and attention to every detail. The renovation is by Eligra LLC, a husband-and-wife team of Michael and Victoria Jones, and we’ve admired their work before

In this house, they’ve opened up the floorplan with clean lines of sight and a long list of updates. Those include a new 30-year roof, plumbing, electrical, HVAC, low-E windows, water heater, Elfa closet systems, and new insulation in interior walls, exterior walls, and in the attic.

This kind of attention to detail and quality of improvements is normal for renovation by the couple, said listing agent Adam Murphy with Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate. 

“Every single flip is extraordinary and they pay incredible attention to detail, like moving the wall back six inches to put in a full-size refrigerator and giving homebuyers a big binder with every single manual and thing they’ve done, from a light fixture to a garage door opener,” Murphy said. “There’s not something comparable on the market in Oak Cliff that is in this price range.”

This home has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,644 square feet on one story, built in 1952. There’s an open house Friday from 5-7 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 2-4 p.m.. Want a sneak peek?

Elmwood gets high praise from neighbors and Heritage Oak Cliff for its natural beauty:

Elmwood is a picturesque North Oak Cliff neighborhood of charming homes and expansive parks. The community is located on gently rolling, tree-shaded hills above the limestone banks of Cedar Creek. This land was once the Tennessee Dairy Farm and remnants of the farm exist to this day, including the former farmhouse and portions of an old stone wall that divided the farm.

Elmwood Park, along the banks of Cedar and Elmwood Creeks, is a focal point of the neighborhood. The park is full of mature trees and is home to a variety of birds and wildlife. The park has play equipment, open spaces for sports, and is a popular place for walking dogs and jogging as well.

The curb appeal of this property aces the test with new treated pine accents and pristine red brick. This really showcases the windows, which shine. The sod is so new, it’s not in the photos yet. 

Inside, hand-scraped hardwood floors are everywhere except bathrooms and the master bedroom. New recessed lights and fixtures add to the illumination from the large windows. 

The kitchen is way more luxe than you would normally find in this price range, with quartz countertops, a large island with breakfast bar, white Shaker-style cabinets with tons of storage, walk-in pantry, and high-end stainless steel appliances, including a gas cooktop, wine chiller, double ovens, and built-in ice maker. 

The master bedroom feels like a true retreat features stylish epoxy floors, a walk-in closet, and a grand shower with dual shower heads, designer tile treatment, and frameless glass. Spacious secondary bedrooms are marvelous, too.

In the private backyard, find lots of new features, like an eight-foot fence, pergola, and sod.
