Glenn Oaks Home for Sale in Oak Cliff | CandysDirt.com

Sometimes, we stumble upon a stylish and sexy renovation that stands out as the best in the neighborhood. 

That’s the case with the house at 4621 Oak Trl., our Tuesday Two Hundred. This Glenn Oaks ranch is located near West Ledbetter Drive and South Polk Street about eight miles south of downtown in Oak Cliff. Just about everything is new, from roof and HVAC to electrical and double pane windows. And that’s not even considering the updated rooms, which have outstanding good looks and function. 

This ranch’s renovations are a win in its three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living areas, two dining areas, and 2,078 square feet on one story, built in 1964.

Huge Reno on Cottonwood Heights Home in Richardson Takes It from Drab to Fab | CandysDirt.com

For our Friday Four Hundred, we’re heading two miles north of the LBJ loop to a Richardson neighborhood with some fast-appreciating property prices.

The Cottonwood Heights home at 1431 Lamp Post Ln. hit the market in May, a luxe finish-out on a traditional Dutch colonial revival. This house is modern and gorgeous — they’ve taken a blah house and made it absolutely beautiful inside. Its asking price of $484,800 might seem high for this area, but in fact three nearby houses with similar amenities sold recently for $450K, $519,900, and $525K. So maybe not.  

This home has four bedrooms, three full bathrooms, one half bath, three living areas, two dining areas, and 2,808 square feet on two stories, built in 1964.
