You won’t believe what you get for the price in this updated Bishop Arts beauty! We spoke to the owner Daniel Alvarado, an agent at Real Estate Reformation, who rehabbed the home himself. He tells us: “This home is perfect for the first-time or experienced home buyer looking for that Bishop Arts experience!”

The three-bedroom, two-full-and-one-half-bathroom home in a fantastic Oak Cliff area is turning heads for its meticulous renovation, location, and unbeatable price. It just hit the market for $455,000!

“This beautiful home has been taken down to the studs and completely remodeled,” says owner, Alvarado. “It boasts a new roof, all new electrical, plumbing, tankless water heater and all new windows!”

Fresh Curb Appeal

We love the new woodwork and inviting front porch! It gives this 1930s home a fresh look and feel.

Show-Stopping Open Floor Plan

Inside, a show-stopping open floor plan just begs for your finishing touch! Plenty of natural light, nine-foot tray ceilings, and gorgeous hardwood floors define the space and draw our eye to the fabulous kitchen.

Trendy Marble Kitchen And Bar

On-trend navy lower cabinets meet crisp white uppers all decked out in gold-tone hardware. The marble countertops and island really make a statement, met by a stainless gas stove, dishwasher and microwave, with room for you to bring your own fridge. There’s also a convenient built-in bar with wine fridge for serving your favorite beverage when entertaining friends.

Spacious Laundry With Built-Ins

Nearby a laundry/mud room offers hook-ups, cabinets with sink, plus a charming built-in bench with coat hooks. A handy powder room with double entry completes the space.

Magazine-Quality Master Suite

Prepare for your jaw to drop! This exceptional master bath affords two vanities, one with double sinks, and a stunning walk-in shower with free-standing soaking tub and floor-to-ceiling tiles. The single-pane, steel-framed shower barrier adds a modern industrial touch. And the master closet is not overlooked. It affords custom shelving with ample space to house your wardrobe.

Guest Beds & Baths Are Equally Appointed

In one guest bath, you’ll enjoy floor-to-ceiling subway tiles, a marble sink vanity, and of course, contemporary paint, hardware, and lighting to complement the overall tone of the house.

Two-Car Garage & Fenced Backyard

An attached two-car garage and fenced backyard round out the exterior.

Location, Location, Location!

And it’s the home’s idyllic location mere steps from the Bishop Arts District that make it all the more desirable. “The home is a short stroll from all the restaurants and bars that Bishop Arts has to offer while still being a short commute to places like Trinity Groves and downtown Dallas. And it has a great open floor plan perfect for entertaining,” adds Alvarado.
