3725 Pageant Place

Interstate 635 is a 37-mile-long partial loop around Dallas, but for some Dallasites, it’s a magical dividing line only crossed with great protest. The area located “outside the loop” is considered a vast no man’s land full of scary things, like suburban malaise and way too many Olive Gardens.

For those who subscribe to that sentiment, today’s Tuesday Two Hundred won’t be frightening at all. The house at 3725 Pageant Pl. is a 4-2 located inside the loop near Marsh and Forest lanes, newly listed by Hanne Sagalowsky at Ebby Halliday’s Little White House office for $239,900.

This 1965 ranch is on a cul-de-sac and has 1,805 square feet, a good-sized backyard with mature trees, and a stone patio covered by a large pergola and a spa hot tub.

One of those East Kessler treasures built in 1948, updated to the hilt, but so beautifully preserved to retain 100% of it’s charm. Honestly, when I saw the beautiful pine ceiling and beams, I thought I was deja vu in a Carmel cottage! 1512 Sylvan sports freshly re-finished oak hardwood floors, an updated kitchen with granite, 5 burner gas stove, stainless appliances and slate tile flooring. Large stone patio areas front and back. The driveway goes through the property for easy access front or back, two car garage spaces. Two bedrooms, two nicely updated baths, and you coud not be closer to downtown Dallas if you, well, lived at the W. (Not at this price! And you are also close to Bishop Arts — I mean, walk!) This angele is priced at $229,000 listed with Sharon Hargett Keller Williams Urban. My God, it doesn’t get any cuter (or more perfect) than this!
