When a home renovation is done right, it looks like a million bucks. That’s the case with a 1956 Oak Park Estates we’ve found, just over 7 miles from downtown Dallas and close to Kiest Park.
Our Thursday Three Hundred at 1605 Watervaliet Dr. is professionally remodeled with an open floorplan in the common areas, upgraded electrical and plumbing, and new insulation in the attic.
This home has three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, three living areas, two dining areas, and 2,085 square feet on one story, built in 1956.
Located one block from the 263-acre Kiest Park, this Oak Park Estates home is walking distance to its rec center, playground, trails, swimming pool, and sports fields and courts. There are almost 600 homes in the neighborhood and Heritage Oak Cliff writes:
The Oak Park Estates neighborhood is surrounded by towering trees, rolling terrain and an abundance of greenbelt areas with Five Mile Creek cutting through the center of the neighborhood…Oak Park Estates has a rich history of community involvement. There has been a neighborhood association, crime watch committee, and/or garden club existing as far back as the early 1960s.
Doors and light fixtures were replaced throughout this house, including a new contemporary front door. Additionally, there are new tilt-sash, dual-paned windows throughout and recently refinished hardwood floors. The dining area has an on-trend wood plank accent wall.
The kitchen features cabinetry topped with black granite and a glass tile backsplash. There is a breakfast bar with on-trend pendant lighting and stainless steel appliances, including a wine refrigerator. This is near the living room, anchored by a brick-surround fireplace.
Hardwoods extend to the bedrooms and both bathrooms are redone.
This house sits on a corner lot of almost a third of an acre with separately fenced side and back yards. In the back, you’ll find a wood deck, mature trees, and lots of grassy green space.
This Oak Park Estates home was listed July 13 by Gregory Hutchinson with Ebby Halliday — Southwest Dallas & Ellis County for $319,900.
