Beckley Club Beauty

[Editor’s note: Merry Christmas! This week, we’re taking time off to focus on our loved ones, so we are sharing some of our favorite stories from this year. Keep an eye out for our top features from the archives as we rest and get ready for a brilliant 2018! Cheers, from Candy and the entire staff at CandysDirt.com!]

From Leah Shafer: I love writing our Tuesday Two Hundred because of the challenge. As our North Texas market continues to heat up, finding a great house or condo in this price range week — one that not only offers good value but also wows — has gotten more exciting over the past three years I’ve been writing it. My favorite from 2017 was this Beckley Club Estates beauty from August 29. Read on an see why I was enchanted.


Bishop Arts is an “it” destination of North Oak Cliff, but prices there have increased hugely in recent years. Head southeast a short jog and you’re in the much more affordable and super charmed neighborhood of Beckley Club Estates. Here, you’ll find lots of bungalow- and cottage-style homes built from the 1930s to 1950s. 

Our Tuesday Two Hundred at 1630 Ramsey Ave. is a 1951 beauty taken to the studs for a whole-house reimagination. The extensive updates focus on smart technologies and creating a sense of spaciousness in its three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,891 square feet. The home feels as through its new, but its in an established, character-filled, and fast-appreciating neighborhood. Best of all worlds.
