Let’s say you love the idea of a tiny home, but for everyday life, you just can’t make it your reality. What if you could have a tiny home to escape to when you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed by day-to-day life? A place you can feel cozy and creative in short spurts?

This property in Stevens Park Estates is the best of both worlds.

Originally built in 1938 and then renovated and expanded in 2007, this home feels like a Fredricksburg estate plunked down in one of our Favorite North Oak Cliff neighborhoods. This listing from Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s Realtor Jenni Stolarski is just phenomenal, and just hit the market today.

“The cool thing about this home is that it feels like being in the Hill Country or Santa Fe,” Stolarski said. “It’s got over 600 square feet of covered patios and balconies, and the owner took up sculpture after retiring three years ago. She found an unknown talent and built an art studio in back. It’s an awesome little house, with a sleeping loft and half bath.”

The studio is just divine. I’m no sculptor, but I do knit quite a bit (just ask my husband about my yarn stash!) and the studio is one of those spots I could imagine putting a kettle on while I spin some wool or work on a sweater or project. It’s bright and airy, and that vintage sink stand is just perfect for the space. And that arched window is just so lovely! The whole building is brand new, built just last year. It could be a cool guesthouse, too.

Of course, the main house at 1935 W. Colorado Blvd. is nothing to sneeze at, with 3,592 square feet, three bedrooms, three full baths, and a gorgeous kitchen. There’s plenty of room for entertaining, too, with formal living and dining rooms, a study, and the most beautiful modern rustic eat-in kitchen that will blow your dinner guests’ minds.

It’s priced perfectly, too, at $1,056,000, which comes out to almost $294 per square foot. Considering the many upgrades in this home and the stunning landscaping, plus the location? It’s definitely a million-dollar property.

Head up the staircase with the custom wrought iron railing for even more gorgeous spaces. There are two master suites, both of which are on the second floor. They are beautifully appointed and have large enough floor plans to have a spot to sit and read and soak up the sunlight.

However, the larger master bath is the stuff dreams are made of. A hammered copper free-standing tub is front-and-center, with vessel sinks topping the marble counters to match. There is copious cabinetry, and an oversized frameless glass shower shows off the designer tile.

And if that’s not enough, just consider all of the outdoor space from which you can soak up the views. Balconies, porches, paths … this home is like a walking meditation on rustic luxury. But Stolarski? She’d like to work out an arrangement to live in the studio, if that’s OK with you.

  • I have to say, the studio and the outdoor spaces are my favorite. I love them far more than the interior of the main house. It’s lovely, but too much going on for my taste.
    I have dreams of living in a tiny-ish home, maybe a 1000 square feet, when I retire, but to have twice that much outdoor living space. The idea of recreating landscapes from some of my favorite places is just so enchanting it gives me goose bumps!
