Let’s be honest, nothing is more frustrating than house hunting in Dallas on a tight budget. The market is hot, bidding wars are often the norm, and getting into a house with all the bells and whistles in a nice neighborhood with decent schools is a major feat.

That being said, there are still a few deals to be had, and we found one that’s the perfect fit for our Friday Four Hundred — located in Far North Dallas, it’s an updated 1976 single story that’s been through one hell of a makeover. Let’s take a look inside, shall we?

Huge Reno on Cottonwood Heights Home in Richardson Takes It from Drab to Fab | CandysDirt.com

For our Friday Four Hundred, we’re heading two miles north of the LBJ loop to a Richardson neighborhood with some fast-appreciating property prices.

The Cottonwood Heights home at 1431 Lamp Post Ln. hit the market in May, a luxe finish-out on a traditional Dutch colonial revival. This house is modern and gorgeous — they’ve taken a blah house and made it absolutely beautiful inside. Its asking price of $484,800 might seem high for this area, but in fact three nearby houses with similar amenities sold recently for $450K, $519,900, and $525K. So maybe not.  

This home has four bedrooms, three full bathrooms, one half bath, three living areas, two dining areas, and 2,808 square feet on two stories, built in 1964.

Kidd Springs RemodelThe first thing that comes to mind when I think of the Kidd Springs neighborhood in Oak Cliff are the charming smaller cottages, most under 1,800 square feet, with a handful of grand homes sprinkled in. But more often than not, these Kidd Springs cuties come with odd floorplans and upper level masters that aren’t exactly workable for today’s buyers.

Well this week we came across a home that throws all this out the window. Meet 831 Woodlawn Ave. – a sprawling 2,836-square-foot gem, complete with main-floor master suite, and impressive designer upgrades priced to sell at $499,000.

Wynnewood 509 Hoel Drive

The secret is out — Wynnewood North is hot.  Located just south of the Bishop Arts District, and only three miles to downtown, it’s one of the larger neighborhoods of Oak Cliff. In 2012, the Dallas Observer named Wynnewood North the Best Neighborhood in Dallas, and it just keeps getting better.

Wynnewood, you may have guessed, is named after the Wynne family. Yes, that Wynne family — the same genius behind  Six Flags Over Texas. Construction on the self-contained, planned community began in 1946 and was almost complete by the mid 1950s.

Angus G. Wynne Jr. was tasked with creating quality homes, economically, but with individuality. Not a very tall order was it? He succeeded, of course, and those homes are just as solid today, as the day they were built. Families are flocking into these ultra-cool, split-level, mid-century modern homes and our Friday Four Hundred is a perfect example of why they are so appealing  to a new generation of buyers.
