Everything in the late Derrill Osborn’s Oak Lawn condo was red and green. Everything. And it was that way until early last week when listing agent Nan Elizabeth Byorum of Ebby Halliday Preston Center decided it was time to let a new homeowner transform the condo for sale at 4151 Wycliff Ave., No. 102 into a blank slate to make their own.
“This home was his design, his very signature,” Byorum says. “I understand what a sanctuary and retreat this was for Derrill. He lived there so long that I feel he would hope someone find that same solace, too.”
Indeed Osborn, a prominent Neiman Marcus buyer, meticulously curated the 1,087-square-foot condo over his lifetime. He once described it as “a little Oriental here, a little French thrown in there, red and green, and a whole lot of cows.”
The small eight-unit community was built in 1962, a design influence that’s seen in its stone facade. “The neighbors are friendly in this self-managed boutique community and dues are low,” Byorum says.
The two-story condo has two bedrooms, two full baths, and one-half bath. Priced at $213,000 for 1,087 square feet, that comes to an affordable $196 per square foot.
The open first floor has parquet wood floors, fireplace, wet bar, and a beautiful breakfast nook with French windows and doors that overlooks the small private outdoor space that’s ideal for a small garden, barbecuing, or pets.
