Our Tuesday Two Hundred is located near Gus Thomasson and Shiloh roads in an established neighborhood with mature trees and a sense of community. This home has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living areas, and 1,836 square feet on one story, built in 1955. There’s an open house this Saturday, April 28, from 2-4 p.m. Would you like a sneak peek? 


One of the more satisfying things to see in real estate is a gorgeous renovation, particularly if the transformation is dramatic. 

So prepare to be thrilled by our Tuesday Two Hundred, a Cedar Oaks flip that took the Oak Cliff house at 1509 Arizona Ave. from choppy to chic.  What was closed off and dark is now contemporary and sleek with a high-end finish-out and a basement that was formerly detached. 

“The owners were really trying to create something different and beautiful with a lot of function and an open floorplan,” said listing agent Alexis Madrid with The Madrid Group. “They took the whole house to the studs and recreated it with a custom touch.”

This home has three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, one half bath 1,710 square feet on two stories, built in 1950.


In the heart of Oak Cliff in its Druid Hills neighborhood, we’ve found cozy-chic style with a renovated ranch that’s sure to sell fast. 

The house at 2020 W. Five Mile Pkwy. is our Tuesday Two Hundred and it was made for a family that wants stylish living across the street from a park and greenbelt, and minutes from Bishop Dunn Catholic School and Bishop Arts District.  

This home has three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, one half bath, two dining areas, and 1,973 square feet on one story, built in 1958. 


When it comes to life on this side of the lake, there are few neighborhoods in East Dallas that still retain much of their character like Lochwood. Located on the north east side of White Rock Lake, hugging the borders to Old Lake Highlands and the L Streets, this neighborhood is delightfully hilly, with long stretches of greenbelts that curve around creeks, huge parks, and great neighbors. And it’s no wonder that, with the still bordering on affordable real estate in this neighborhood, Millennials have been searching for the right place to claim their first home.

We’ve seen our share of flips in Lochwood, one of the few remaining somewhat affordable neighborhoods inside the loop, and though we’ve easily fallen in love with them, there’s something to be said about knowing when to stop “updating.” Need an example? Check out this cute Lochwood ranch listed by Lauri Ann Hanson and Aimee Schreiner with Dwell Partners Realty at Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate.

“Located in one of East Dallas’ best ‘under the radar’ neighborhoods, Lochwood, this three-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bath, recently remodeled home is a perfect starter home,” Schreiner said. “It’s within walking distance to Lochwood Park and close proximity to White Rock Lake, so you can enjoy all that East Dallas has to offer right at your fingertips.” 


Heights Park Cutie in Richardson Lists Today with a First-Look Open House Tomorrow | CandysDirt.com

We love it when Realtors give us first dibs on writing about a great property about to hit the market! That’s the case today with this Heights Park home in Richardson — it goes live later today with a first-look open house tomorrow, March 21, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. 

Located at 435 Rustic Cir., this 1955 property is our Tuesday Two Hundred with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a one-car garage, and 1,203 square feet on one story. 

Heights Park is an established Richardson neighborhood attracting a lot of attention for positive reasons. For example, four houses in the area won community revitalization awards from the city, including one down the block on Rustic Circle. 

“When you buy a house in this neighborhood, you’re buying into the lifestyle — it’s very friendly, you know your neighbors, your kids hang out together,” said listing agent Dan Washburn of Washburn Realty Group . “The home itself is nicely updated and while it’s not huge, but it’s laid out really well.”

Washburn lives in the area and reports a lot of young couples are buying around Heights Park, knocking out the wall between the kitchen and living area, and creating a totally open floorplan in these houses. 

“This house is pier and beam so if you wanted to renovate and knock out that wall, it would be really easy,” he said. 

This house is indeed nicely renovated, including fresh landscaping. In addition to the Wednesday open house, there are two more this weekend on Saturday, March 24, and Sunday, March 25, from 2 to 4 p.m. 


If you’re looking to buy a Dallas house for under $300K, they tend to be on the smaller side. But every once in a while, you find a happy surprise. 

Our Tuesday Two Hundred is one of them. The East Dallas house at 10918 Shiloh Rd. has five bedrooms, three full bathrooms, one half bath, and 3,017 square feet on two stories, built in 1959. The roof and siding have been replaced, HVAC updated, front porch added, and there are new windows, floors, and paint. The curb appeal is cute as can be, the kitchen and baths are great, and the price has been reduced from $294,900 to $245,000. 

Did we mention it has over 3,000 square feet?!?

Take this adorable Oak Cliff cottage at 2234 Carnes Street, in the L.O. Daniel neighborhood, as evidence. (more…)
