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…)

This home at 6910 Joyce Way  has been reduced by a whopping 6%, from $445,000 to $419,000. What a great buy for the location! You get 3900 square feet with four bedrooms, three and a half baths, all the formals you’ll ever need. Tucked in Windsor Park, with pretty French Brown floors, crown moldings out the wahzoo, top of the line appliances and spacious rooms with what the rest of the world is lacking: abundance of storage. In fact, I have no doubt that if we got everyone in Washington bigger closets, a lot of problems would be solved, like  maybe the federal deficit.
