Bud Oglesby Designed Condo | CandysDirt.com

Architect-designed living isn’t just for the wealthy. We’ve found a midcentury condo for under $200K, designed by Bud Oglesby, one of the most important Dallas modernist architects of the 20th century.

Oglesby and his firm, Oglesby Greene Architects, were creators of the Mahanna Condos at 3116 Mahanna St. in Oak Lawn. Apartment 5 just went on the market and it’s a beautiful example of his work.

Located near Cedar Springs Road and the Dallas North Tollway, these condos were built in 1958 and offer a lovely midcentury aesthetic on the exterior. This is an intimate, private, gated complex with landscaped common areas and a swimming pool.

This condo has two bedrooms, one full bathroom, one half bathroom, and 1,073 square feet on one story. Let’s take a look!
