In the hilly, scenic neighborhood of Wynnewood, we’ve found a open-floorplan home with sleek style and big renovations.

Many of the houses more than 350 homes there are quite affordable and have attracted the attention of flippers, like our Tuesday Two Hundred at 2454 Garapan Dr. Both exterior and interior are totally updated, including a new roof, insulation, electrical wiring, windows, water heater, security system, and HVAC condenser and furnace.

One of the goals of midcentury architecture was to foster a sense of connection between indoor living spaces and the outside. One 1962 Oak Cliff house achieves that beautifully through thoughtful design and offers enviable views.  

Our Thursday Three Hundred at 808 Wood River Rd. is perfectly perched on an oversized lot with tons of large windows, a loft area with views, and multiple access points to the front and backyard spaces. 

This home has four bedrooms, two full bathrooms, two half baths, three living areas, two dining areas, and 2,647 square feet on two stories, built in 1962 and sitting on 0.33 acres, with multiple mature pecan trees and landscaping.

Oak Cliff is just lousy with beautiful historic homes, but it can be somewhat of a crapshoot buying a flip that is older than a certain age. And some neighborhoods have a diverse array of homes from different periods, none quite so striking as the Dells District. This neighborhood, according to Heritage Oak Cliff, features brick and stone cottages from the ’20s and ’30s originally developed by a Mr. Irwin — hence the name of one of the major streets, Irwindell. More houses were built after World War II in the ranch vernacular.

The Dells District is also home to this adorable, exceptionally renovated listing from Phillip Murrell of Compass, which is also our High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans. 

“One sure-fire way to recognize a solid remodel is when the builder thoughtfully reconfigures and modernizes a historic home, but restores as much of the distinct, original features as possible,” Murrell said. “The next lucky owner will enjoy a ‘like-new’ home without sacrificing the soul and story that makes it extraordinary.”

We love the sweet cottage style in a renovated North Oak Cliff house built in 1939 and reimagined with a darling aesthetic.

Located in the Elmwood neighborhood, the house at 1619 Melbourne Ave. offers updates galore, from new windows and updated electrical and plumbing to an on-trend kitchen that looks like it jumped off the pages of a design magazine. 

Despite its modest size — 1,352 square feet — this house has tons of function and flow with three bedrooms and one bathroom.
