Tiny living never looked so cute as in the Elmwood cottage at 1918 Wilbur St. in Oak Cliff. This charmed home features refinished hardwood floors, fresh interior paint, a completely updated kitchen, built-ins, and sweet curb appeal.
This home has two bedrooms, one bathroom, and 943 square feet on one story, built in 1950. Let’s take a look at our Tuesday Two Hundred.
Located near West Illinois Avenue and South Hampton Road, this house is walking distance to the 260-acre Kiest Park and the Oak Cliff Nature Preserve, to of the gems in this part of Dallas. Elmwood is a family-friendly neighborhood of Tudor cottages, Craftsman bungalows, and ranch-style homes built mostly in the 1920s through the 1950s. The area has a central greenbelt along the limestone banks of Cedar Creek, so nature is front and center if you live here. Love that.
The house itself has refinished original hardwood floors that run throughout as well as plenty of big windows. This floorplan makes the most of the square footage with a front living area, dining room with two built-ins, and an updated kitchen.
That kitchen has new White Shaker-style cabinets, contemporary backsplash, granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances, including a gas range. Other recent improvements include a new roof, new HVAC components, and upgraded electrical service.
The master has a cedar-accent closet and the hardwoods extend to the bedrooms.
The backyard is good-sized and has an open patio and detached, oversized one-car garage. This house is close to Tyler Station and the soon-to-open taproom from Oak Cliff Brewing Co.
This Elmwood cottage was listed June 7 by Bill Farrell with Oak Cliff Real Estate for $210,000.
