Adorable Kidd Springs Heights Cottage Perfect for Your Resolutions

Kidd Springs HeightsIf your New Year’s resolutions included becoming more active, our first Thursday Three Hundred of 2019 is a Kidd Springs Heights charmer perfectly situated to get you there.

And when you account for the fact that it’s also in the coveted zone for Rosemont Elementary, this home at 815 N. Tyler St. just gets better.

Realtor April Allen with Anthony Long Realty said the adorable home is also ideally situated for anyone looking to adopt (or even maintain) a more active lifestyle, too.

“It’s a great starter home for someone looking to get into this neighborhood —  it’s just a 15-minute walk to the Bishop Arts District, the Kessler Theatre, and and the Stevens Park golf course, and across the street from Kidd Springs Park,” she said.

The home itself lends itself to potentially having your own Crossfit-style workout spot or pool, with an extra deep 200 foot lot, Allen said, but if you’d like to have that lot for entertaining or gardening instead, the home’s placement in the Kidd Springs Heights neighborhood will certainly provide plenty of opportunities for working up a sweat, thanks to the Kidd Springs Recreation Center, which the city bills as a state of the art fitness center overlooking Kidd Springs Lake.

“It is located right across from the Kidd Springs Park and Recreation Center, which features a running trail around the lake/pond, affordable and recently updated fitness center, affordable fitness/dance/yoga classes, and a new aquatic center with six-lane lap pool scheduled for completion by Summer 2020,” she said. “A Camp Gladiator (boot camp) also meets on the baseball diamond directly across from the house.”

But the house itself is also a massive selling point. Priced at a entry-friendly $309,000, the three-bedroom, one-and-a-half bath home charms from the curb, with a front porch large enough for some seating, or even a porch swing.

It’s also ideal for appreciating another feature of the home, Allen said.

“There is an awesome view of the downtown skyline from the front yard, with those beautiful downtown lights at night,” she said.

Inside, the floor plan is open enough for those who are seeking a good flow for entertaining, but the kitchen is a great compromise between Team Open Kitchen and Team This Is My Kitchen — it’s just open enough that you can still chat and hear conversation in the common areas, but just separate enough that you still feel like the kitchen is a private domain.

“The home features refinished wood floors, high ceilings, large living and dining areas, newer windows, updated baths, and updating wiring and plumbing,” Allen told us.

The 1925 home has been thoughtfully updated to be someone’s perfect starter home — with a lot of charm packed into the 1,417 square feet of living space.

And Allen said that the location is just perfect for someone who wants to spend a lot of time enjoying an established neighborhood, too. Kidd Springs Park is the site of several great neighborhood events, all a short walk from the front porch, including the Dallas Symphony Orchestra’s concerts in the Spring, and the Blues, Bandits, & BBQ Festival in the Fall.

“Both are near the baseball diamond directly across from the house,” she said.
