From the outside, this Winnetka Heights bungalow is totally traditional — its slate gray clapboard exterior and gabled roof with decorative brackets fits in perfectly with the other Arts & Crafts and Prairie Style homes in this historic conservation district. But inside you’ll find something completely unexpected.
It’s homes like these, ones full of surprises and some of the best finishes that are worthy of being named a High Caliber Home of the Week. And when you find a High Caliber Home, contact Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans to ensure you soar through pre-approval and are ready to make your best and highest offer in our crazy-hot market.

Were you suprised? I know I was when I first clicked through to see inside this absolutely glam property.
“This home is a perfect transition from yesterday to modern day luxury,” says listing agent Crystal Gonzalez of David Griffin & Company Realtors. “All systems of the home have been updated, as well as finishes, offering the perfect place to call home in one of the most vibrant neighborhoods in Dallas.”
Yes, 114 N. Edgefield
fits right in among its fellow 1920s Craftsman homes, but inside its 2,220 square feet of sleek and contemporary finish-out you’ll find a modern haven. There are three bedrooms and two full bathrooms, plus a two-car detached garage and the epitome of a chef’s kitchen inside this house. It’s also super close to everything you love about living in North Oak Cliff, including the Bishop Arts District, Tyler Street, and the Kessler X+ area. With so much style, a beautiful backyard, and a fabulous location, we’re not at all shocked to see it on the market for $515,000.
Really, what more could you want in a home? Designer tile and stone everywhere, sexy light fixtures, the most perfect paint palette for the gray obsessed among us (count me in!), plus some truly phenomenal molding details. The kitchen is just a picture, with a Bertazzoni commercial double oven and six-burner cooktop with griddle, Hoshizaki ice machine, 36 bottle wine cooler, recessed liquor cabinet, and an eat-in island — all of it topped with the most divine Italian marble. It is so perfect it just kills me. Notice the great photographs and art on the walls that acknowledge Oak Cliff’s less-than-modern origins. Great Easter egg there!
There’s a really fabulous den toward the back of the house, with some really sexy tile on the floor, that’s the perfect surface, too if you have traffic from your pool and back patio through the house (more on the pool later). You’ll also notice some built-in storage in the area, as well as all those gorgeous windows. Did you notice that ceiling detail? Take a look at that cool half-coved trim detail! The lighting is just perfect for movie night, too.
While the master bedroom does have a cool coved ceiling punctuated with wide trim and a gorgeous dark gray wall color, doors that lead to the backyard oasis, and a lovely little vanity, it’s the master bath that steals the show. Yes, it is only a tub, and yes, it has only one vanity, but LOOK AT THAT 96-GALLON SOAKER TUB! Bamboo on the walls! Sexy glazed tile everywhere! Fire feature! Flatscreen on the wall! This is where I would be with a glass of wine (sparkling!) every night. Without fail.
Oh, and the other bathroom is pretty alright, too.
Finally someone is using smoked glass for a shower stall! And this is how you use that cool glass mosaic tile, folks.
And if the master bath didn’t give you enough room to relax, there’s a fantastic covered patio and a saltwater pool in the backyard. Honestly, this home has everything you could possibly want and in one of the best locations in Dallas. What do you think?
