Big front porches are social by nature, and a neighborhood full of them means homeowners who know each other’s names, kids who race across the lawns together, and a gracious, welcoming atmosphere.
Find that front porch lifestyle in North Oak Cliff’s Winnetka Heights, the city’s second largest historic district with 600 Craftsman-style bungalows and Prairie-influenced Four Square homes. Advertised in 1911 as “Dallas’ Ideal Suburb” by the Russell Realty Company, Winnetka Heights stands today as Dallas’ best example of preserved, turn-of-the-century housing.
Our Thursday Three Hundred at 416 S. Winnetka Ave. is a great example of a Winnetka Heights Craftsman, a 3-2 with 1,734 square feet, built in 1945.
It was listed Jan. 29 by Crystal Gonzalez with David Griffin & Company for $349,000. (There’s a broker open house this morning from 10 a.m. to noon, so hurry over and report back with your thoughts!)
