Today’s Hot Property has arguably the best location in Dallas. 3719 Cragmont Avenue has all the perks of a Park Cities address–stately neighboring homes on a quiet tree-lined street, close proximity to Turtle Creek and polished parks, and an overall suburban feel. On the other hand, it’s just a few blocks away from shops, restaurants, and nightlife in the Knox District and on Oak Lawn.
This home’s façade is one part cottage, two parts contemporary. There is whitewashed brick, a metal roof with multiple peaks, a cheery chimney, and an unfussy front window with no shutters. It’s secluded, set back from the street a bit with an unconventional path leading to the front gate and courtyard.
While this home was taken to the studs for its remodel, the interior pays a subtle homage to 1950s design trends (check out the checkerboard flooring in the foyer). A bright and airy kitchen greets guests as soon as they enter. Multiple windows invite sunshine inside, and the rays bounce off the cathedral ceiling and white and gray cabinetry. The open floor plan flows into a simple, chic living room, where a sculptural mantle frames a herringbone fireplace.
All three bedrooms are just down the hall; unlike some of the oversized homes popping up in the Park Cities, this build is a single-story. Each has vaulted ceilings and plenty of natural light. The master also has its own fireplace, flanked by French doors that open onto the backyard.
There isn’t a traditional lawn outside, but you likely won’t notice the lack of grass. This tiny but well-outfitted outdoor living space includes a pool with multiple water features, a space for a row of chaise lounges, and several dining areas. On colder nights, walk around the exterior to the front courtyard, where you can warm up around the fire pit.
