So, Jenni Stolarski is kind of my hero. Not only is this amazing Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s VP a business powerhouse, but she just flipped the most amazing home that had me pinning just about every single room (OK, every single room, no lie) to my Pinterest pin boards. Yes, y’all, it’s that beautiful.
Stolarski, who is so awesome she plants trees in her spare time, bought this house from a little old lady five years ago, and it was pretty much in its original condition, she said. At the time, 806 N. Windomere was a steal — a property like that, with great bones and tons of charm, was becoming rare in Oak Cliff. Young couples and investors who were looking for great investments were snapping up properties all over North Oak Cliff like $200 iPads at a Black Friday sale. This one, in the up-and-coming Kings Highway Conservation District, was kismet.
“I actually tried to sell it a few years back,” Stolarski said over the phone yesterday. It’s a good thing it didn’t sell before she and her partner could gut the thing and make it the supermodel it is today. Don’t believe me? Check out these amazing “after” pictures!
Bye-bye, ugly siding and purple trim! Hello, sexy gray paint! With 10-foot ceilings throughout it’s 1,588 square feet, a gorgeous custom finish on the hardwood floors reminiscent of whitewash, and Carrara marble just about everywhere, it’s no surprise that this home went under contract just as soon as it hit the market.
It was listed at $319,000, and honestly, this two-bedroom, two-bath stunner is worth every stinking penny. Built in 1906 and fully modernized for today’s needs, this home pretty much fulfills everything on my dream home list. Apron sink? Gray cabinets? Commercial appliances? Tons of windows? Yes to all of that.
The hall bath is the perfect mix of traditional and modern elements, with a claw-foot tub and plank walls with chrome sink stand and luxurious tile floors. I love all of the details, especially the outdoor light fixtures that look at home flanking the bathroom mirror. These women have an eye for style, that’s for sure, and Stolarski can swing a hammer with the best of them.
The master bath will make you swoon. The marble everywhere, the incredible shower, the dual vanity, the pocket door that leads to the wall of wardrobes in the hall (love that!). Well, I am just impressed.
The screened in back porch is amazing, and a wonderful feature for anyone who appreciates our spring and fall temperatures but could do without the bugs. (That is pretty much everyone, right?)
Stolarski said she worked with an outstanding general contractor, Gary Roberts, who did a fantastic job. We couldn’t agree more. Congratulations on the incredible transformation, Jenni, and we can’t wait to see what you do next!
