229 N Brighton A

For this week’s Tuesday Two Hundred, we’re venturing out to the L.O. Daniel neighborhood of North Oak Cliff, to a renovated Craftsman at 229 N. Brighton Ave.

Listed at $225,000, this bungalow is a 3-1 with 1,378 square feet and a saltwater pool. The neighborhood is north of W. Jefferson Boulevard and adjacent to Winnetka Heights, near the intersection of W. Eighth Street and N. Rosemont Avenue. It is listed by Jenni Stolarski with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International.

Built in 1921, this house sits on a tree-lined street and has wonderful curb appeal, with a wide, wood-plank front porch, hanging swing, and a ceiling fan. It also has authentic details, like painted dentil molding above the doors and along the roofline, as well a soft green, cream, and brown color palette. Jump to read more!  (more…)

928 Lausanne Front

It’s really, really hard to find a home for less than $300,000 in some of the more desirable North Oak Cliff neighborhoods. Some of them need a lot of TLC, others are prime tear-down candidates. And then there are homes like 928 Lausanne. This adorable little cottage in Kings Highway could be such a super cool little house. And it could be your little project for just $250,000! Just think: Living small in Dallas would be so much fun in this home and neighborhood …

Friday Five Hundred: Vickery Place Craftsman Has The Updates You Want

5410 Vickery Blvd. is a stunning Craftsman bungalow with tons of updates!

So, I think I’ve already admitted this, but I am a sucker for Arts & Crafts architecture. When I saw this $549K listing from Haley Wagstaff at Dave Perry-Miller INTOWN, well, my heart went all aflutter!

First: Love the exterior color scheme! The red door adds just the right amount of personality! So thoughtful! So Feng Sui!!

The livingroom features a fireplace and plenty of light.

But inside, you’ll find tons of great updates that don’t take away from the Craftsman charm. Tray ceilings, gorgeous fixtures, subtle paint, and wonderful wood trim make this Arts & Crafts abode a stunner.

Check out those beautiful wood-trimmed windows and pocket doors!

This home has something that’s pretty rare for its 1920s time period: THREE FULL BATHROOMS! Can you tell I’m excited about that? There are four bedrooms and a study that’s being used as a fifth, too, but — THREE FULL BATHS! OK, I’ll rein it in.

Find respite in the large master bedroom.

The master bedroom is big and clean, and so is the dining and living areas. The kitchen, well, it’s got granite counters, a gas cooktop and custom vent hood, gorgeous subway tile backsplash, plenty of cabinet space, an eat-in island and — my favorite feature — a wine fridge!

The kitchen has all the updates you could want!

Add in the lovely pool in the backyard and, well, I don’t see this $549K Craftsman on the market for too long!
