In North Oak Cliff, Beckley Club Estates is one of the older neighborhoods, established in 1926. Rarely does one of the historically notable homes of the area come on market. Our Tuesday Two Hundred was one of the original model home for the neighborhood (“Ramona Gates”). It sits on a corner lot, complete with private courtyard, two-car garage, and plenty of yard space.
Located at 1527 Seevers Ave., it has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,678 square feet, built in 1928. This is a rare find, and it just hit the market.
The home has been lovingly restored and updated. Many original details remain, such as Spanish-tile roof, gorgeous covered entry, entry doors with hardware, sunken living room, emerald door handles, and custom built-ins.
Modern updates include an expanded kitchen with generous storage and granite counters, a full utility room, and ensuite master bath. The sunken living room offers a large, arched picture window, and original ironwork including exterior sconces, gates and courtyard railings. There are also original light fixtures, original emerald green doorknobs throughout the house, and original hardwoods. Architectural details throughout the home add to the vintage charms, and the kitchen boasts a high-back robin’s egg blue Chambers gas stove—wow!
The courtyard off the living room and master bedroom offers privacy and space for outdoor entertaining, and the yard is xeriscaped and also offers mature trees.
This Beckley Club Estates home is listed by Jenni Stolarski with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty for $269,000.
