Tucked away in Kessler Square in North Oak Cliff is a beautifully renovated Tudor. But this particular Tudor is more than a house, it’s an education – in how to decorate and do it so very, very well. Basically, this Kessler Square Tudor is all the oohs and the la las.

Listing agent Melissa O’Brien nailed it when she said, “Every element is tasteful with just the right amount of fanciful, but always elevated. A gorgeous color palette grounds the home while carefully chosen wall and ceiling coverings make it fly.”

Munger Place Heights

There’s a little neighborhood nestled between Gaston and Abrams called Munger Place Heights, and the moment you wander in you’ll find a slice of heaven. Trees arch over the streets to intertwine, lawns are perfectly manicured, everyone hangs out on the front porch, and the neighbors not only know your name but they know your dog’s name, too. If you’re lucky enough to nab a house here you won’t ever leave, unless you love ‘em and leave ‘em like Karl Braddick does.

Today’s Thursday Three Hundred is a rare treat. This Junius Heights Tudor, located just south of the heart of Lakewood at 731 Lipscomb Ave., charms with its vintage curb appeal and original details throughout the interior. Updates, like the quartz kitchen countertops, commercial-grade stainless steel range, and master bathroom addition, address common concerns in a house from this era (1924), and make it appealing for modern buyers.

With the addition, the house is now a 3-2, with 1,948 square feet, spacious for a Tudor and for the neighborhood. You can’t beat the location, walking distance to Lakewood Shopping Center and a short distance from the south end of White Rock Lake.

This house was listed Tuesday by Brittney Warren of Rogers Healy and Associates for $389,000, so this is a first look at this property.

M-Streets Tudor

If you’ve always wanted to live in a home that looks like it belongs in a fairytale, then today’s Thursday Three Hundred is your wish come to market.

The M-Streets Tudor at 5355 McCommas Blvd. captivates with corner-lot curb appeal, from the steeply pitched roof and bright red door to stone-and-wood siding and arching shade trees. This 1946 house is pure romance and charm, both inside and out, with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,485 square feet. It is listed by Julie Coats Frakes with Allie Beth Allman for $395,000.

Located just two blocks from Glencoe Park, it’s situated in a coveted neighborhood, on the northern edge of Greenland Hills. The picturesque streets are filled with historic revival houses, many of which are also Tudor-style versions of English cottages. This architectural continuity, along with the gently rolling hills and canopy of pecan and oak trees, makes for a congenial, enchanting feel.

Wonderful Tudor home...

There are pockets of delightful, historic architecture throughout Dallas, and North Oak Cliff is rich with them. One neighborhood, Hampton Hills, was billed as “Oak Cliff’s Ideal Home Place” in ads from the mid 1920s, and is comprised of about 320 craftsman bungalows, Tudor houses, and pre- and post-war cottages, making it one of the most undisturbed areas of original architecture in the city.

Hampton Hills is bounded by Clarendon Drive on the north, Wright Street on the south, Oak Cliff Boulevard on the east, and Hampton Road on the west. For today’s Tuesday Two Hundred, we’re looking at a lovely Tudor on a quiet street in the area, 1325 Hollywood Ave. This house at is a 2-2 with 1,313 square feet, built in 1930, and it is listed for $240,000 by Mary Beth Harrison at Keller Williams’ Park Cities office.

1325 Hollywood Ave T

This house was likely built by original neighborhood developer Alf W. Sanders and it’s full of the kind of original details that make me swoon. Take, for instance, the front of the house with its unusual, decorative brickwork and steeply pitched, cross-gabled roof. This style of Tudor revival in Hampton Hills is called English Cottage and it lends a storybook feel to the neighborhood. Jump to read more and see tons of pics!
