Find Big Updates, Sweet Cottage Style in this Elmwood Home

Deep in the heart of Oak Cliff, there’s an Elmwood brick cottage with sweet style, big updates, and a friendly price tag. 

Our Tuesday Two Hundred, at 1918 Newport Ave., has many of the upgrades you’d expect to find in new construction, but all the personality and charms of its era. Plus, it is only three miles from Bishop Arts, seven miles to downtown Dallas, and walking distance to a DART light rail station. 

This home has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two dining areas, and 1,522 square feet on one story, built in 1951. Let’s take a look.

As Heritage Oak Cliff writes, Elmwood offers a rich heritage and high quality of life for residents.

Elmwood is a picturesque North Oak Cliff neighborhood of charming homes and expansive parks. The community is located on gently rolling, tree-shaded hills above the limestone banks of Cedar Creek…A variety of architectural styles are represented in Elmwood. These include: Tudor cottages; craftsman bungalows; 1930s cottages of brick or wood; and a variety of ranch style houses from the 1940s and ’50s, made of stone, brick or wood. Elmwood Park, along the banks of Cedar and Elmwood Creeks, is a focal point of the neighborhood. The park is full of mature trees and is home to a variety of birds and wildlife. The park has play equipment, open spaces for sports, and is a popular place for walking dogs and jogging as well.

In this house, located near South Hampton Road and Wright Street, the curb appeal is darling, with manicured landscaping, a mature tree, and newer low-E windows. Love the midcentury brick detail on the front porch. 

Inside, refinished original hardwoods greet and reflect light from those windows beautifully. They’ve staged this house stylishly to show off function and flow and the photography shows it — homes from listing agent and Oak Cliff specialist Ged Dipprey with Dave Perry-Miller InTown always show this attention to detail. 

The renovated kitchen now offers granite countertops, white cabinets, walk-in pantry, and Viking stainless steel appliances, including double ovens and a four-burner gas cooktop. 

Hardwoods extend to all the bedrooms and the master’s ensuite bath has a walk-in shower and marble accents. 

A light-filled utility room could be a home office and leads to an attached oversized one-car garage. There’s also a private courtyard and backyard w six-foot board-on-board fence. A newer HVAC and roof round out the package.
