If you come across the residential handiwork of award-winning preservation contractor Ron Siebler, take note! This talented craftsman has long history of the highest quality restorations of historic homes in North Texas.
It shows in our Thursday Three Hundred at 315 S. Windomere Ave., a 1913 Winnetka Heights Craftsman bungalow with recent renovations by Siebler and huge overall appeal.
Sited on an elevated lot with rolling front lawn and waterfall steps, the Craftsman’s curb appeal is completely lovely. Exterior highlights include a pretty gable-covered front porch, tapered columns and brick bases, vertically divided upper window panes, and flared skirting.
This home has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living areas, two dining areas, and 1,816 square feet on one story.
David Preziosi, executive director of Preservation Dallas, told us last year, “Ron is an outstanding craftsman and his work on historic buildings shows the care and quality to which he approaches his work. [He] often uses historic techniques and tools to make sure his work is accurate for the period and respects the historic structure.”
Inside, find a coastal-inspired interior with tall beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, and a gas fireplace framed with built-in bookshelves from floor to ceiling. The floorplan is traditional for this stye and era, with a front living room, then a formal dining room, then the kitchen.
A beautifully appointed kitchen by Siebler captures the feel of a 1913 Craftsman bungalow with modern amenities. Think checkerboard floors of low VOC Marmoleum, breakfast bar, black honed quartz countertops, lots of white cabinets, farm sink, white subway tile backsplash, and stainless steel appliances, including double ovens. This space captures views of party deck and backyard.
The ensuite master is a rare gem with a walk-in closet with custom organization system, hex tile on the bathroom floor, white subway tile in the walk-in shower, and two pedestal sinks with mirrored medicine cabinets. Hardwoods extend to all the bedrooms — no carpet in sight. The secondary bathroom features a vintage slipper tub, beadboard, and a pedestal sink.
Walk through double French doors in the kitchen and take in the lovely backyard with a large wood deck, detached two-car garage, mature tree, and lots of grassy green space.
