Feel the Magic of this Claremont Renovation that Turned Dumpy to Delightful | CandysDirt.com

We’ve long been fans of Barton-Graham Home & Design Firm, a dynamic duo specializing in East Dallas renovations. In their latest project, they don’t disappoint. 

The house at 8071 Claremont Dr. is our Thursday Three Hundred, a massive transformation by Casey Barton and Raymond E. Graham. The pair have been renovating and selling houses together for 10 years with their design company, getting better with every flip. 

They specialize in finding diamonds in the rough, and this house was no exception. 

“This was not a sellable property before — it had a 750-square-foot addition that we torn down because it was really bad with different height rooflines and flooring, all very poorly done,” Barton said. “But we knew this house had a lot of potential.” 

They started work one year ago and put the home on the market Oct. 31. It has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living areas, and 1,971 square feet on one story, built in 1957. Let’s see the place now.

royal haven

This three-bedroom, three-bath ranch in Royal Haven is a great option for home buyers finding themselves priced out of Sparkman Club and Midway Hollow.

As home buyers begin to get priced out of Midway Hollow and Sparkman Club Estates, they are starting to look to other nearby neighborhoods, where investors are starting to snap up lots and renovate, but the price tags are still affordable.

This week’s Thursday Three Hundred is in the Royal Haven neighborhood, which is bordered in part by Webb Chapel Road, Forest Lane, and Royal Lane in Northwest Dallas.

It’s a neighborhood where you can still get the square footage and the family neighborhood you want, but at an affordable $300,000 range.  (more…)
