North Oak Cliff Traditional With the Perfect Spot For a Christmas Tree

Share News:

ChristmasThis week, the staff is on a quest to find the listings that provide the best opportunities to hang those stockings with care or display a Christmas tree (or four, we won’t judge).

That includes our Tuesday Two Hundred in North Oak Cliff, with the perfect sunny window for a Christmas tree, and a great layout for entertaining.

The home at 912 S. Rosemont Ave. was pitched to us by Kylah Boyd with Texas Urban Living Realty during our weekly call for pitches over in our Facebook group, Getting the Dirt.

Located between the Winnetka Heights and Elmwood neighborhoods, this three-bedroom, two-bath home has been completely remodeled, having been taken down to the studs, which means it is full of brand-new features despite being built in 1924.

Care was clearly taken when choosing finishes that complemented the original hand-scraped hardwood floors, with light, bright paint throughout the home.  

Sleek white subway tile in the kitchen is complemented by white counters and cabinetry, and open shelving above. Stainless steel appliances will please any cook, who definitely won’t find himself (or herself) lacking for company — the kitchen is open to the living spaces.

The master suite is spacious, and a sliding barn door leads to a generous master bath with oversized shower. The other two bedrooms are also generous, and the second bathroom has also gotten a sleek re-do.

Practicalities were also addressed with a new roof, new plumbing and electrical, new windows, new insulation, and a brand new board-on-board fence.

And since it’s Dallas, Texas, potential buyers will also be happy to note that a large deck and additional patio space create ample opportunities to take the Christmas party al fresco, since there’s always a chance the weather will be amenable. And the backyard is large and heavily treed, creating a private sanctuary, too.

The home is also zoned for Winnetka Elementary (which met state standard and earned distinctions in English Language Arts-Reading and post-secondary readiness), Greiner Exploratory Arts Academy (which met state standards with five distinctions), and Sunset High (which met state standards and earned four distinctions).

The North Oak Cliff home is listed for $282,000.

    You should look at the North Wynnewood Subdivision homes with Christmas decorations.

    An unknown subdivision with $400k to $500k homes, with large front windows and Christmas trees and decorations to boot.
