This traditional in Stevens Park Estates is rather unassuming from the curb, but it hides a wonderful surprise — a beautifully remodeled interior complete with attic conversion, all of which absolutely exudes that midcentury modern style that Millennials are so hot for.
Yes, this two-story, four-bedroom, three-bath home in one of my favorite neighborhoods in all of North Oak Cliff is spacious inside with a wonderfully open first floor, spacious and bright bedrooms, plus a first-floor master with a gorgeous private bath. What a great listing from the Hewitt & Habgood group at Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate!
It’s a little bit of a surprise, entering this home and seeing the minimal midcentury-style furniture, the open spaces, and the modern kitchen, but it’s a pleasant surprise for us. Truly, the sellers of this 1935 traditional at 2000 Mayflower updated this home in a splendid way, carefully creating spaces that would appeal to most of today’s buyers. Listing agent Kathy Hewitt has priced this beauty at $565,000, and as of today, this home is under option.
This 2,206-square-foot, four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath home has some fantastic features, including lighting upgrades, a practically brand-new kitchen with tons of cabinetry and a spacious eat-in island and stainless steel appliances, and a cozy den with plenty of room to hang out and watch a movie after dinner.
I do love the layout, with the master suite on the first floor and the three other bedrooms and two bathrooms upstairs in the converted attic. The master, which is at healthy 16 x 12 and has French doors that go out to the terraced backyard. Thanks to the mature trees in this established neighborhood, the softly swinging boughs provide a buffer so that the light streaming into your bedroom isn’t going to sear your corneas when you wake up.
You can tell, thanks to the block of horizontal windows and the very modern-feeling tray ceiling, that this part of the home is an addition. Because of the limited size of the master bathroom, though, the sellers were smart to keep the palette white and bright, so even with the vanity lights dimmed, you don’t feel claustrophobic.
First, let us be amazed that, with the attic conversion, this home was able to squeeze in three additional bedrooms and two bathrooms. That’s the same split of bedrooms to bathrooms that you’ll find in typical homes the same age before renovation, and none of them will look this clever and fun. Personally, I like the bedroom with the en suite bath that has a steep pitch in the shower ceiling, broken only by the skylight. How fun is that? It’s something you’d expect pulled from Pinterest!
While the deck could use a good stain and seal, what really shines in this backyard is the copious spots for outdoor enjoyment. Grassy lawn, terraced hedges, stone patio with room for a fire pit, and a nice little deck that wraps the rear of the home. Isn’t it just sweet?
So, were you surprised by this 1935 traditional in Stevens Park Estates?
