The contemporary Craftsman at 5457 Vickery Blvd. was actually built in 2015 and is one of three features in our Dallas open houses roundup this week.

We just love a great Craftsman and the Dallas neighborhoods where they reside. For our CandysDirt.com Open Houses of the Week column, we’ve indulged our whimsy and included three Dallas Craftsman houses for your viewing pleasure. They range in price from $499K to $1.189 million and one was actually built in 2015 as an East Dallas custom. All three are beautiful with Craftsman-like elements like wide and welcoming front porches; broad, low gabled roofs; and wide-open layout that makes the most of square footage.

Elmwood

Over the past year, the Elmwood neighborhood of Oak Cliff has surged in popularity. Here, houses are around 1,500 to 1,600 square feet, usually three bedroom, and often under $300K. That affordability, coupled with the lovely topography and proximity to downtown Dallas, have buyers snatching up the Elmwood homes that hit the market (you can see three recent listings I’ve written about here, here, and here).

Our Tuesday Two Hundred is a great example of what’s available, located at 1715 Lansford Ave., near W. Claredon Drive and S. Edgefield Avenue. It has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,459 square feet on one story, built in 1947. This same house further north in Oak Cliff would be in the mid-$400s, says listing agent Crystal Gonzalez with David Griffin & Company Realtors.

“It’s hard to find a 3-2 brick house in Oak Cliff that’s in good condition for under $300,000,” Gonzalez said. “Elmwood still has a lot of character, with Tudors and cottage-style homes, but it has affordability — you can buy these great houses for less, which you really can’t do from I-30 down to 12th street.”

With recent renovations and cute curb appeal, this home offers a lot to buyers.

“The cool thing about this house is it has two living areas, which is great because you can still keep a formal area and have a big open space to entertain in with the kitchen and den,” Gonzalez said. “It’s near walking trails and in the heart of Elmwood, which has nice topography and lots of trees.”
