Built in 1927 yet beautifully restored for modern-day, this Bungalow brings the drama and low maintenance living to North Oak Lawn. It’s also a rare find for the area.
“This is one of the very few last standing single family homes surrounded by townhouses, condos, and apartments in the North Oak Lawn area,” says listing agent George Lanier with Land Here Realty. “There are so many unique features about this home. Though it was built in 1927, it has smart home technology, such as a Nest thermostat and Green Air UV purification for the HVAC.”
And that is only the beginning. The two-bedroom, two-full-bathroom home has been professionally restored and updated with amazing craftsmanship while of course, keeping with its historical character. What remains are original hardwood floors, windows, and doors with period hardware.
The charming two-story home has a completely updated kitchen too. It’s adorned with an imported Italian subway tile backsplash and gorgeous quartz countertops. Stainless steel appliances, a gas range, and ample cabinetry in a tranquil hue create a fabulous place to cook a meal. A convenient window banquette adds Pinterest-worthy allure.
Thoughtful Designer Details
Even the bathrooms afford thoughtful designer details. We like the subway tile accents and classic penny tile floor. A fantastic master suite offers architectural interest with built-ins and a nook to place your bed.
“There are so many new features to list,” says Lanier. “Like the roof, the electrical panel, low maintenance backyard with synthetic grass and a lot of beautiful greenery in the front of the house as well.”
Low Maintenance Lawn
We absolutely adore the curb appeal. Out back, the tranquil and secluded fenced yard is a dream! It offers a picture-perfect space to enjoy the outdoors with very little maintenance – a relief during those sweltering Texas summers.
Perfect For All
“I think that this home could be perfect for a number of people,” adds Lanier. “From a couple looking for a starter home to someone tired of renting with nothing to show for it and doesn’t want to deal with an HOA. Someone looking to downsize. Someone wanting that condo type of feel with the low maintenance yard, being able to entertain and still have the privacy. I’ve even thought that it would make a great AirBnB because of the location and that it’s move-in ready.”
The location of this home in desirable North Oak Lawn, makes it a great buy. But there’s more than one reason this historic Dallas looker is turning heads.
“It checks all of the convenience boxes,” Lanier says. “It’s within in a few minutes to Love Field, the major freeways, shopping at West Village, Highland Park Village, shops of Highland Park, as well as all of the amazing restaurants that Dallas has to offer. And let’s not forget, this house has the great amenity of the Highland Park Police and Fire Department. A huge plus!”
See for yourself at the Open House, this Saturday, from 1 to 4 p.m.
