Irwindell

We love a great before-and-after, and our Tuesday Two Hundred tells a compelling story. This 1928 North Oak Cliff Tudor was uninhabitable until 2015, when huge renovations restored this beauty and made it into the cozy, stylish home you see today.

Located at 502 S. Westmoreland Rd. in the Irwindell neighborhood (just south of West Jefferson Boulevard), this Tudor is completely reimagined with an open concept floorplan and modern amenities buyers love, like a brand new kitchen with farm sink and open shelving. But the original character of the home shines, too, with details like glass doorknobs and restored fireplace.

“All the improvements were completed in August 2015 and made to reflect the charm and character of this late 20’s-built home in Irwindell,” said listing agent Mark Lucisano with Keller Williams—Dallas Park Cities. “This home is located one mile from Westmoreland DART station and all of the great shops and eats in Bishop Arts.”

It’s a modest footprint, with two bedrooms, one bathrooms, and 1,105 square feet, but this home packs a lot into that space and makes the most of its size. We’re impressed!
