Tuesday Two Hundred: Dilbeck-Inspired Ranch in Wynnewood Feels Both Rustic and Refined

723 Woolsey Front


If you think you can’t afford North Oak Cliff, think again. There are still tons of great values, wonderful homes that were built to last, and some exceptionally stylish and eye-catching architecture. Take this lovely 1954 Dilbeck-inspired ranch at 723 Woolsey for example. Lovely brick and a fabulous low-slung roof, with pillars and timber and huge windows galore.

723 Woolsey Living 2

Inside you’ll find some fresh renovations that, while they up the sparkle factor of this 1,900-square-foot ranch, they still keep the home true to period. You’ll love all the windows, that’s for sure, and the gorgeous wood-burning fireplace in the main living area is a treat. This two-bedroom, two-bath home is very well-preserved, but the updated kitchen is an absolute dream. It’s a brand new listing marketed by David Griffin & Co. Realtor Lisa Kleypas for $269,000.

723 Woolsey Kitchen

With fresh cabinets and granite counters, new hardware and a beautiful brick floor, this is a kitchen for entertaining. Stainless steel appliances and glass upper cabinets make this 60-year-old property feel modern and ready for anything. And if you love excellent uses of color, then you’ll adore the paint in this home. Just enough green to stand out, but not too much to overpower — that’s what I’d call these sagey walls in the galley. Definitely a great ethereal shade that keeps the brick floor from feeling too heavy.

723 Woolsey Sunroom

Just outside the kitchen is a lovely rough-timber-sided sunroom with a stone floor that is great for a breakfast nook or even an additional living area. Two huge French doors lead to the back porch, which is spacious and overlooks the huge backyard with mature trees.

Now, the master is sizable and features the same lovely refinished hardwood floors you’ll notice throughout the home. You’ll appreciate the lovely closet doors that have just the right amount of visual impact without overpowering the design. My only qualm is that, from this picture you can’t see much of the master bathroom. The hall bath has the original tile — a gorgeous two-tone teal color scheme with beautiful honeycomb flooring — but I’d love a closer look at the master bath.

723 Woolsey Backyard

Still, there’s plenty more to love about this home. If you’re a fan of porches, this home has two of them — one in front and one in the back, both of them open to the gorgeous scenery you’ll find in Wynnewood.
