Thursday Three Hundred: Nothing is More Classy Than This Updated Tudor With a Finished Basement Apartment!

Published September 14, 2012 by Joanna England

This home, 6802 Hammond Ave., is so tremendously exciting to me because it is one of a very, VERY rare breed in Dallas — a home with a finished basement. This is another gem inside the Hollywood-Santa Monica neighborhood of East Dallas, which feeds into Lakewood schools (Lakewood Elementary, Woodrow Wilson High School) is an incredible community.

The home, a three-bedroom, two-bathroom Tudor, includes more than 1,800 square feet of fully restored and renovated space. Everything is sleek, neutral, and gorgeous on the inside, and the exterior, with the ivy climbing over the gray painted brick, is just as charming. I bet this home gets a lot of “ooohs” and “ahhhs” by families walking through the friendly neighborhood. And the price —$399,900 — is great for all of the usable space you’re getting.

One of my favorite things about this house, other than the exquisite finished basement, is how the kitchen blends seamlessly with the dining area. That’s perfect for families with children, especially those who need a place to do homework while mom (or dad!) make dinner.

The bedrooms are pretty typical in size and decoration, and the bathrooms have what you would expect from a remodel in this price range. Everything in this house is super clean and just screams traditional, right down to the wainscoting and color palette.

The basement, though, is all modern. French doors separate the living area from the bedroom and bathroom. While there’s no kitchen downstairs, I’m sure you could make any young college grad comfortable with a microwave and a mini fridge so they can save some money for a downpayment on their own first home!
