The Mansion Park area is one of those neighborhoods chock-full of great properties, and these townhomes are a perfect example of how you can get into a fabulous neighborhood for a less-than-exorbitant price. While these Bud Oglesby-designed, midcentury modern townhomes look pitch perfect from the curb, 2812 Welborn St., another amazing listing from Ebby Halliday top-performer Dennis Hammet, truly does this design justice.

Bud Oglesby Townhome in the Heart of Oak Lawn | CandysDirt.com

Bud Oglesby’s architectural work is a Dallas treasure, and we have lots of it. Today’s Tuesday Two Hundred is a Oglesby-designed townhome in the heart of the Oak Lawn neighborhood.

Located at 2727 Hood St. Apt. 107, this townhome is a midcentury modern masterpiece, built in 1964 and extensively updated in a way that adds to the character of the era’s architecture and adds the kind of modern amenities buyers love. And it’s well under $300K, so don’t expect this one to stay on the market long.

The design is contemporary, with an open living and dining room, a dreamy kitchen, and gorgeous bathrooms. This unit has two bedrooms, one full bathroom, one half bath, and 972 square feet on two stories. Let’s take a look!

Using most standards from around the world, Dallas homes aren’t very old at all. Sure, you’ll find the occasional 1920’s property, but rarely anything older. Not so with today’s Thursday Three Hundred, a slice of Dallas history as the site of the original Piggly Wiggly store, built in 1916. It is also rumored to have been a speakeasy during the Prohibition era.

Located at 315 N. Collett Ave. this is a rare townhome in Munger Place, both architecturally and historically significant. It offers a distinctly loft-like vibe inside. Think 12-foot ceilings, exposed ductwork and rafters, and exposed brick with custom texture on the walls.

This property is full of stories, and not just its own: the reclaimed maple hardwood floors were recovered from the former gym at the Hockaday School. Pretty cool.

With three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 2,249 square feet on one story, this is a spacious townhome with luxe extras, like three-zone wiring for total house sound, including the front patio and courtyard.

This is such an unusual, storied property, located near N. Munger Boulevard and Columbia Avenue, just minutes from downtown Dallas — let’s take a look.
