Hold on to your cocoa, folks, this listing is hot, hot, hot! Located just one mile from Dallas’ trendy Bishop Arts Districtyes you read that right – sits this gorgeous, three-bedroom, two-bathroom beauty that has been extensively restored and priced to sell!

“I’ve seen a lot of homes in my 10 years in Oak Cliff but the ones that pull on the old heartstrings are those that capture the heart and soul of Oak Cliff,” says listing agent Ged Dipprey of Dave Perry-Miller InTown. “For a home to get this nod it must not only have the period essentials; rich hardwoods, charming fireplace, wrap front-porch, but a certain ‘je ne sais quoi.’ 614 N Rosemont has just that!  Maybe it is the use of bark-brick in the construction of it’s Prairie-style frame, or perhaps it’s as simple as having good flow and fantastic light. If you were to couple any of those assets with the harmonious blend of old and new updates in this home you have a winner! If you get them all in one-package, well that’s simply a show-stopper!”

Clocking in at a delightful $450,000, the 1923 bark-brick prairie charmer meets all of our Friday Four Hundred criteria and then some. Excellent location, modern upgrades, loads of character, and a beautifully landscaped backyard are but a few of the home’s winning attributes. Let’s take a peek inside, shall we?

First impression – light-filled and dressed to impress! The soaring ceilings, original hardwood floors, classic brick fireplace, and French doors leading to a wrap-around porch have us at hello.

The home affords a spacious 1,998 square feet of living space decked out to the nines, including a sleek contemporary kitchen with designer backsplash, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and crisp white shaker cabinetry.

We love the adorable eat-in breakfast nook and quirky corner desk for homework or organizing the mail. A mudroom off the back side of the kitchen offers a great spot for dropping shoes, coats, etc.

We also can’t help but gush over the layout, and how the nearby formal dining room opens to both the living area and gourmet kitchen, which makes it ideal for entertaining.

Off to the rear master suite for exceptional design upgrades! Here you’ll enjoy a private place to rest with sitting area, and spa-like bath with dual vanities plus a luxe walk-in shower. Guest rooms are generous in size and share a secondary bath with free-standing soaker tub.

Just imagine living steps from Dallas’ most independent neighborhood filled with eclectic boutiques, restaurants, coffee shops, and art galleries. The Bishop Arts District in Oak Cliff is where local artisans and mom-and-pop-shops unite!

Oh, and did we mention this darling prairie-style home is down the street from nearby Rosemont Elementary School? Perfect for a growing family! The home is also fitting for a young couple or retiree who craves the carefree Bishops Arts lifestyle.

“I’m holding this special home open this Saturday, December 9th from 2-4 p.m. to correspond with the Winnetka Heights Holiday Home Tour so be sure to stop in and see for yourself what makes this home so special,” adds Ged.

If you happen to catch the Open House this Saturday, let us know what you think in the comments. We’d love to hear your take on this one-of-a-kind Oak Cliff home!
