Oak Lawn Real Estate  Sold by Douglas Newby

D Magazine's 10 Most Charming Homes 2020 included this 1996 meticulously built one-story Victorian style architect-designed home capturing the detail, 11-foot ceilings, wood floors of a historic home, deep pier and beam and quality construction of a new home. Many large windows and sense of openness suggests a more contemporary floor plan. Large apartment over three-car garage provides a guesthouse or a possible source of income. Charming white picket fenced yard and gracious front porch announce this home in the vibrant Oak Lawn district. Here is an opportunity to purchase a home less than replacement cost and enjoy architectural splendor.

Close to Turtle Creek, around the corner from Oak Lawn, five blocks from Highland Park, a site was chosen on the corner of a vibrant block of restored homes, condominiums, and new architect designed townhouses for this architecturally important home.

For the price of some neighborhood townhouses and condominiums you are able to purchase a 2,000 square foot home with 10 foot ceilings, exquisite craftsmanship and quality materials, a modern kitchen with stainless steel appliances, and a three car garage with a second story 775 square foot residence and elevated terrace.

The style of this architecturally distinctive home is Queen Anne, complete with the wood trim, stenciling, murals, and wall coverings from the Victorian period. The house is constructed with a pier and beam foundation, 2 x 6 exterior walls, and has eighty feet of Victorian detailed porches wrapping around the front, side and back of the home. This home is further accentuated by the ridge caps on the roof and beautiful red brick chimney.

Few homes in a stylish urban environment have the charm, modernity, and division of spaces – 2,000 square feet in the main house and 775 square feet in the residence above the three car garage. For further information call Douglas Newby at 214-522-1000.

This iconic home in Oak Lawn built in a Victorian style in 1996 was selected by D Magazine in 2019 as one of Dallas' Ten Most Charming Homes. In 2022, over a half dozen buyers made over full price offers, further confirming the appeal of a well designed home with 10 ft. ceilings, double passageways with pocket doors, and porches that wrap around the home.
