Trust a real estate agent to know exactly how to make a tired old property new again — and sellable. Such is the case at 5990 Lindenshire Ln. unit 125E, an agent-owned, Bud Oglesby-designed townhome that has been renovated top to bottom and everywhere in between.

The two-bedroom end unit is as good as new, if not better.

“With this particular home, I kind of felt like I had to ‘bring the Bud back,’” says agent Brandon Fleeman of Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate. “There were lots of layers of paint and wallpaper added to the home over the years, so all that came down. It was put back together as a crisp, white, open and airy space.”

Open and airy it is, and it feels grander than its 1,479 square feet.

“I’m a huge fan of Bud Oglesby and the lines that he used in his architecture. Lots of big walls, vaulted ceilings and large windows. That, of course, all stayed.”

What also stayed is the galley layout of the kitchen, which Oglesby often used in his designs. “I kept the galley design but removed a small wet bar so that I could open that space up to the living room,” Fleeman adds. The kitchen upgrade includes new everything: cabinets, quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances and fixtures.

Entertaining is easy, because you can see your guests seated in the living from the kitchen pass-through, and a built-in wine fridge ensures their glasses stay filled. And the space feels warm, with hardwoods running throughout the public spaces.

In the bedrooms, fresh new carpet feels nice underfoot. Both bathrooms have dark-wood vanities with plenty of storage and light-colored tile in the tub and shower surrounds. Fixtures are sleek and modern.

If you work from home, there’s a small study where a desk would fit, and a big window keeps it bright.

The owner gets a two-car garage, and there’s a community pool to enjoy with neighbors. The North Dallas location is almost as appealing as the renovation. The bustling Preston-Forest intersection —Whole Foods Market, Mi Cocina, The Mercury, Meso Maya and many more — is just a stone’s throw away.

All of this for less than $300,000 — $275,000, to be precise.
