Oak Lawn Townhome with Designer Touches and Low-maintenance Living | CandysDirt.com

Tucked in the heart of Oak Lawn, 2807 Throckmorton St. Apt 105 is fresh, fabulous, and convenient. This renovated townhome is all about the designer touches, clean lines, and low-maintenance living. We love the overall aesthetic, which is Scandinavian-chic and warmly modern. 

Located near Cedar Springs Road and Wycliff Avenue, this townhome sits in a vibrant part of the neighborhood and has two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, one half bath, and 1,086 square feet on one story, built in 1980. There is a broker open house tomorrow, Dec. 13, from 10 a.m. to noon. Would you like a sneak peek beforehand?

Curb Appeal Issues Impact Development Attractiveness

Curb appeal issues at the Sorano on Rawlins may impact the development’s marketability, says Jon Anderson.

The Sorano, inconveniently built in 2008 on the eve of the real estate bubble, is located at 4111 Rawlins St. in Oaklawn. Looking like it’s been hosed-down in orange buttercream, it’s curb appeal hampers what would have been an appealing development.

Coming online as the recession was gaining steam wasn’t the best of christenings. Originally intended as an owner-occupied development of 17 townhomes, developer Sterling Knight failed to capture buyers’ attention for many reasons.

3380 blackburn living

I have long wanted to start a series on the private homes of Dallas real estate agents. Let’s consider this the first post! This is the private home of Briggs Freeman’s Missy Woehr, a dear friend. When she’s not selling sleek condos at Museum Tower, this is where Missy lives with her husband, Gus, also a licensed agent. I think Missy has probably sold every unit at the Cascada.

This is an elegant three bedroom, three and two half bath townhouse built in 2003. With 4166 square feet, this 3-story home is spacious, secure and has a study that could be a fourth bedroom in case you have a houseful.  The floor plan is one of the best I’ve seen, and there is an elevator BUT! There is also a guest room on the first floor. I remember Missy telling me about this last January when my mother-in-law was visiting, my husband was recuperating from a knee replacement, and I needed a first floor guest room. 3380 Blackburn is a home that has been upgraded and planned to the T with top grade materials, comfort and ease of living in mind.
