Neutrals can get a bad rap as boring and bland. But that’s not the case in our Thursday Three Hundred.
The cottage at 4917 Wateka Dr., near W. Lovers Lane and Inwood Road in the Greenway Village neighborhood, is a vision of cool neutrals and serene spaces. Everything about it looks relaxed, planned, and elegant.
It has two bedrooms, one bathroom, and 1,248 square feet on one story, built in 1946. In terms of location, this cottage has it nailed, just around the corner from Inwood Village, some of the best shopping and dining in Dallas. It’s also close to Love Field Airport and the Dallas North Tollway, making getting around a snap, too.
The curb appeal is darling, with sage green shutters, manicured landscaping, a cute front porch, and a true cottage look.
The floorplan opens from the front door with a cozy living room with wood-burning fireplace, recessed lighting, and beautiful hardwood floors, which carry throughout most of the home. The formal dining area, the next room, has a contemporary iron-and-glass pendant, door leading to the patio, and an open floorplan with the kitchen. That space has granite counters and stainless steel appliances, including a built-in microwave and gas range. Just off this area is a big mudroom, a rare feature.
The two bedrooms are spacious with hardwoods and the master has a huge closet. They share a bathroom, which is not unusual for a home of this era. It is updated with granite counters and new tile.
The backyard is all grassy space, with a patio area with plenty of space for multiple seating areas.
This home was listed July 30 by Amy Timmerman with Nathan Grace Real Estate for $329,900.
