“What I love most about this condo is its prime location,” said Lauri Ann Hanson, one-half of the Dwell Partners listing team. Oak Lawn is a fabulous location and offers tons of perks. The nearby Dallas North Tollway and North Central Expressway offer easy access to the city and when it’s time to get out of town, Love Field isn’t very far either.

You don’t even need a car or an Uber to get to great restaurants, shops, and salons. Everything, including Eatzi’s, is right down the block.

If you’re into low-maintenance, delightfully updated property with a private side yard, this Oak Lawn listing might be what you’ve been looking for.

In the heart of Richardson, just across Belt Line from Cottonwood Park, there’s a cute little neighborhood filled with ranch-style houses built in the 1950s. Many are well maintained. Most are no frills. Some are nicer than others. And one has a putting green.

If you’re looking for something in the $200’s in one of the most popular neighborhoods in all of Dallas, here it is, served up to you on a CandysDirt.com platter.

The cottage at 8647 San Fernando Way in Little Forest Hills is the house equivalent of what makes this neighborhood so great. It’s quirky, it’s cool and there’s a chicken coop out back. There’s also a barn-like garage, a hand-built Plexi-roofed greenhouse, and antique farmhouse sink, and wash station. Basically, the backyard is the business. It’s everything you and your green thumbs ever dreamed of.

Half acre. Heavily treed. Walking distance to downtown McKinney. Recently made the Tuesday Two Hundred cut after a $5,000 price reduction. Why is there a streetlamp in the middle of the walkway which blends with the driveway? Nobody knows, but you know there’s one way to find out – tour the house and ask your agent. TA DA!

But if you need a little more convincing before you book an appointment, let’s talk about this well-cared-for, thoughtfully updated, three-bedroom, two-bathroom 1960s ranch-style house located at 409 N. Morris Street.

South Dallas Pemberton Hill

New construction in Dallas in the low $200s?

*Tires screech.*

*Horn blasts.*

*Solo red siren from Dragnet magically appears.*

Dramatization? Or real life? YOU DECIDE.

But seriously, let’s talk about 650 Elkhart Avenue. It’s impeccable. The details are thoughtful, and many were hand-selected by the investor, Tracy Bennett, herself.

We hear it a lot, right? “Amazing location. Must see.” And with a fair amount of skepticism, we click. “Oh yeah, we’ll just see about that…”

But this one, this wonderfully updated, sweet little home really is a must see and the location? Well, it’s amazing. It’s walking distance to hiking and biking trails and a little puddle of water called Lake Grapevine.

And then there’s adorable downtown Grapevine with its vintage train, wonderful restaurants, and charming boutiques. Oh, and you’re a short drive from Southlake, too, and hello, they have a Tyler’s.

Fox & JacobsWe’ve written about Forest Highlands before — the small clutch of Fox & Jacobs homes bordered by Forest Lane, Marsh Lane, and Webb Chapel Road, where some of the more affordable (for the square footage) homes in North Dallas exist.

The neighborhood full of Midcentury Ranches has been home to Dallas families since the late 1950s. Built by brothers Ike and Joe Jacobs and David G. Fox of Fox & Jacobs, the L-shaped Accent and Flair homes of the 1960s are present in several neighborhoods in North Dallas, especially along Marsh Lane.
