Stevens Park Village is one of North Oak Cliff’s most picturesque neighborhoods, situated at the northernmost past of the area. First developed between 1939 and 1941, the neighborhood has arching shade trees, wide medians, friendly parks, awesome views of downtown Dallas, and tons of charming homes.
Our Thursday Three Hundred at 2318 W. Colorado Blvd. is one of the neighborhood originals, built in 1940 with 1,922 square feet, three bedrooms, and two full bathrooms.
It was listed Dec. 29 by Callan Harrison with Allie Beth Allman and Associates for $365K, and reduced yesterday to $359,000. Let’s take a look inside!
Stevens Park Village is a true gem in North Oak Cliff. Here’s how the Old Oak Cliff Conservation League describes the area:
Stevens Park Village, one of the most hidden neighborhoods in Dallas’ Hidden City, is tucked away between Colorado Boulevard and the edge of the cliff, which affords many of its residents spectacular views of the Dallas skyline. Wide, curving, tree-lined streets and large medians soften the edges of urban living in this quiet neighborhood. Located near Stevens Park Golf Course, homes here are sought after by those wanting proximity to downtown Dallas and easy access to the Metroplex via 1-30.
Aptly named, Stevens Park Village has a cozy feel due to the charming Austin stone and brick homes that predominate. Many exterior elevations and eclectic facades allow for an architecturally diverse but highly attractive collection of homes. 15 of the homes were designed by noted Dallas architect Charles Dilbeck, who felt that first and foremost a home should be welcoming, and the examples here live up to that promise. Natural materials, intimate scale, and fine craftsmanship are all evident.
This home offers hardwoods in most common areas and the bedrooms, and has two living rooms, two dining rooms, and updates in the kitchen and one of the bathroom, as well as a new two-car garage. The master is separated from the other two bedrooms for privacy and has a walk-in closet with a custom closet system. There are original built-ins in the formal dining room, and the kitchen was taken to the studs for a redesign.
The second family room opens to a deck area in the backyard. The white tile is practical, but not the prettiest option for the room. But that’s a cosmetic fix, if new owners don’t like it.
