Vintage Charmer in Fantastic North Dallas Neighborhood | CandysDirt.com

We’ve found a vintage charmer in a great North Dallas neighborhood where mimosa trees still line the streets and midcentury is married flawlessly with mod updates.

Old is new again at 3106 Woodwind Ln., near Royal Lane and Webb Chapel Road in the Walnut Hills neighborhood. This home is a great combination of new amenities and a nod to the original style. It offers tons of personality with its three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two dining areas, and 1,479 square feet on one story, built in 1956.

3860 Dunhaven Road is a beautiful new build from the Avant Group.

The Avant Group, a CandysDirt.com Approved Builder, has easily kept pace with our region’s brisk real estate market. Buyers have been in an absolute frenzy trying to secure the next home by this acclaimed small-batch builder. Not surprisingly, the Avant Group sold both their Dunhaven and Valley Ridge projects for above list price. Even though these homes did not start out as custom builds, the Avant Group has been able to tailor the finish-out to meet their buyer’s unique needs. How’s that for custom?

We’ve caught a lot of flak from readers when it comes to the definition of midcentury modern, but for most purposes, it tends to span the 1950s and onward to 1965. So while this Northwest Dallas home has all of the lines of a soft contemporary from the curb, it technically falls into the period of midcentury modern, as it was built in ’65. Most will see this home from the curb and wonder why the front doors are painted a somewhat dated combination of dark brown and cream, a strange foil for the yellow-tan brick and narrow windows, but inside this home has some great updates.

North Davilla Drive

Midway Hollow is a big star among affordable Dallas neighborhoods. Lots of houses there, like our Thursday Three Hundred, have been totally remodeled to look fresh and modern, but still ring in under $400K.

Located at 3770 Dunhaven Rd. near Walnut Hill and Marsh Lanes in the North Davilla Drive neighborhood, this home is beautifully done with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,413 square feet on one story, built in 1951. It has hardwood floors and fresh paint throughout, with a new kitchen and master bathroom, among other areas.  There’s a partially open floorplan, and a great backyard. Let’s take a look!

9927 Lenel Place car port

I think we can all agree that not every remodeled midcentury home is a success. For certain, some well-intentioned homeowners and even some rather haphazard flippers have ruined some of the fabulous midcentury moderns and post-war traditionals. This Midway Hollow home, however, was brought up to date in a way that is sensitive to the architecture and style of the home.

And in a neighborhood as hot as Midway Hollow, I totally understand that 9927 Lenel Place, marketed by Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty agent Lou Alpert, probably won’t stick around on the market for much longer, even though it’s only two days on MLS!

3239 Whirlaway

Gabe Rounds was living next door when 3239 Whirlaway went on the market. He did a few remodeling projects in North Oak Cliff and was ready for another chance to put his talents to the test.

And while Northwest Dallas is growing in popularity with flippers and remodelers, not every home turns out right. Not every remodeler has the vision to realize a home’s potential.

But that might be Rounds’ gift, as his work on this stunning Chapel Downs home is a revelation. We’re thrilled to highlight this listing from David Griffin & Company Realtor Diane Sherman and her son Vinnie Sherman as our High Caliber Home of the Week sponsored by Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans. With its outstanding curb appeal and stylish interiors, we’re certain this home won’t be on the market long. Before you visit it during the open house this Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m., be sure to call Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans to get pre-approved so you can sail through closing.

Jump to see inside this fresh-faced remodeled ranch!
