Oak Cliff Craftsman at 932 North Windomere Avenue Will Have You Reaching for Your Checkbook

Get out your checkbook, because even if you’re not in the market, today’s Friday Four Hundred will make you want to drop some earnest money and book the movers. This 1921 Craftsman blends historic charm and practical, pretty updates, making it the ultimate in hard-to-resist real estate. Located in the Kings Highway Conservation District of North Oak Cliff, this gorgeous piece of architecture underwent a 2013 renovation that you must see to believe.

New double-paned windows, updated HVAC, and stainless steel appliances bring 932 North Windomere Avenue smartly into the now, while original hardwoods and true Craftsman appeal transport you to another time. Listed by Kurtis Walker of JP & Associates Realtors for $425,000, the home features two bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,312 square feet. As a bonus, it’s in walking distance to the Bishop Arts District.

Curb appeal for days! Look how cute this house is! And that’s obviously an electric gate which is so practical when you have a detached garage. Well done.

Inside, the first thing I notice is how gorgeous the pine floors are. Just stunning! The second thing I notice is the deer on the wall, but I’ll set my feelings about taxidermy in professional real estate photos aside for this house. Because between that fireplace and those delicious stained glass windows, moving past the deer is a breeze. How cozy! How pretty! It’s on the small side, but smart furniture choices could solve that easily.

A sunny dining room opens to both the living room and, at least partially, into the kitchen. The pony walls are a nice compromise to the modern open concept.

The updates to the kitchen (also a bit on the small side) come off very nicely. The olive-y neutral of the cabinetry is unexpected and terrific.

The room adjacent to the kitchen features double doors that open to the backyard. It’s currently staged as a home office but I think it would make a fantastic second living space.

I rarely post hallway shots but everything here is so crisp! I love the wall of built-ins and in particular, that sweet little laundry cabinet.

The pretty master bedroom pulls in oodles of natural light. The attached bath is crisp and functional, if a little bit on the small side. For a home built in the 1920s, I tend to adjust a few of my expectations — especially with regard to master bathrooms. Any ensuite is better than no ensuite!

The second bedroom and bathroom are just as nice as the master.

The backyard is precious. But more importantly, behold, the garage – the most modern of modern conveniences offered by this house. It looks deceptively like it belongs to the Craftsman era. Instead, built in 2016, this uncommon and modern addition provides plenty of parking and tinkering space.
