Winnetka Heights Prairie-style Home Is a Great Value for Historic Neighborhood

Share News:

We love a Prairie-style Craftsman and the historic Winnetka Heights neighborhood in North Oak Cliff is full of them! 

We’ve found one for our Thursday Three Hundred at 409 S. Rosemont Ave. has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living areas, and 2,125 square feet on two stories, built in 1923. It has lots of light, a front porch that stretches the width of the house, and beautiful hardwood floors. Rare for a home of this era: it has a 624-square-foot detached two-car garage, added in 2012. Let’s take a look before it flies off the market! 

Here’s how Heritage Oak Cliff describes this wonderful neighborhood:

Advertised as “Dallas’ Ideal Suburb” by the Russell Realty Company in 1911, Winnetka Heights stands today as Dallas’ best example of preserved, intact tum-of-the-century housing. The neighborhood is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a City of Dallas Historic District…Winnetka Heights neighbors are dedicated to the preservation of the neighborhood as an enduring symbol of early 20th century life, while ensuring Winnetka Heights remains the most vibrant historic district in the city.

Winnetka Heights is just a total delight, and this house is, too. The color scheme is historically accurate and gives a hint at the charms inside, too. The whole place has been updated and refreshed and it looks marvelous. 

One of the biggest changes came in the kitchen — check out those cool concrete countertops. Definitely a modern touch. Other highlights include an Italian tile floor with river stone accents, breakfast bar, custom undermount sink, glass tile backsplash, and stainless steel appliances, including a contemporary vent hood. 

A good-sized master suite features a large open sitting area and an ensuite bath with bamboo floors, floating sinks, glass tile accents, pendant lights, and a walk-in double shower with river rock accents. 

This Winnetka Heights home was listed June 8 by Diane Sherman with David Griffin & Company Realtors for $399,900
