610 Tenna Loma Front

This house is already so cute. I usually hate it when people say this, but it really does have great bones.

Marketed by Mike Bates, 610 Tenna Loma Court in West Kessler Heights has been expertly maintained and is ready for some color. There are three bedrooms, two baths, and just over 1,800 square feet in this home. You’re within a hop, skip, and jump from Stevens Park Golf Course, and the Bishop Arts District is just a short bike ride away. It’s on the market for a recently reduced $237,500.

610 Tenna Loma Living

When I first saw the interiors of this house, I loved how the living and dining areas had been opened up. It is so refreshing to see so much open space in a home built in 1940. The fireplace is gorgeous, and there are tons of great built-ins. Truly, this home is perfect for the book collector.

610 Tenna Loma Dining

I love the French doors that separate the living and dining areas. It’s perfect to create some intimacy in a space. While the floors, which were recently refinished, sparkle like new, there are tons of great period features such as arched doorways.

610 Tenna Loma Kitchen

Now, I’ve seen lots of kitchens like this one in North Oak Cliff. A new granite countertop has been added, but you’ve still got the same awkward layout that would only make sense if you had a gigantic, antiquated gas range and an actual ice box. This kitchen would definitely benefit from a full-on gutting, and you’ll have put your mark on it to boot!

610 Tenna Loma Sunroom

There’s a great sunroom attached to the kitchen, with plenty of light. Of course, you can deal with the linoleum floors later, probably after you redo the kitchen, right?

The best part about this house isn’t in the photos or the listing information, though. It’s the neighborhood. This area has banded together in recent years to improve quality of life. That’s thanks in large part to great leadership and fantastic residents.

What do you like about this North Oak Cliff traditional?
