According to the Oak Park Estates Homeowners Association, there are about 590 homes in the area. The northern section of the neighborhood was originally developed in the mid-1950s, with the southern section being added in the 1960s. They are separated by Five Mile Creek, which runs through the middle of the neighborhood, and is home to lots of wildlife haven, exhibiting many species of birds, reptiles, and mammals. The neighborhood is surrounded by mature shade trees, rolling hills, and an abundance of greenbelt areas.
This home is located in the northern part of the neighborhood, near Kiest Boulevard and South Polk Street, just a few blocks from Kiest Park. This 263-acre public space offers a rec center, baseball field, garden area, trails, basketball court, picnic areas, playground, soccer and softball fields, and a tennis court and center. It’s also just four miles from Bishop Arts, six miles from downtown, and minutes from the Dallas Zoo, Trinity Groves, and Dallas Farmers Market.
The cute curb appeal of this home starts with the red midcentury brick, accented by freshly painted black shutters, a small front porch, and manicured landscaping. Inside, it’s masterfully renovated, and the retro look is complemented by the art everywhere. The home has a new water heater, new electrical, new plumbing fixtures, and a new HVAC with transferrable warranty.
The front living room flows into the dining area, with recessed lighting and a cool MCM chandelier. This opens to the kitchen, which is frankly, just awesome. The original cabinets shine with new brass hardware, and a contrasting gray island makes the space look modern. There area marble countertops and backsplash and stainless steel appliances. This area opens to the second living area, with a wood-burning fireplace, built-in shelving and cabinets, cool midcentury brick, and another retro sparkly chandelier.
The hardwoods carry through to the bedrooms, which are good-sized with built-in shelving in one. The marble from the kitchen is also in the master bathroom, a dreamy, spa-like space with white cabinets, dual sinks, and a fancy shower.
The backyard completes the total package, with a custom outdoor stove, seating area, privacy fence, mature trees, lots of grassy green space, and a privacy fence.
