Share News:

If you’re looking for something in the $200’s in one of the most popular neighborhoods in all of Dallas, here it is, served up to you on a platter.

The cottage at 8647 San Fernando Way in Little Forest Hills is the house equivalent of what makes this neighborhood so great. It’s quirky, it’s cool and there’s a chicken coop out back. There’s also a barn-like garage, a hand-built Plexi-roofed greenhouse, and antique farmhouse sink, and wash station. Basically, the backyard is the business. It’s everything you and your green thumbs ever dreamed of.

Step inside and feel the openness. Wander effortlessly from room to room without unnecessary extra walls. Waltz into the kitchen, take one look at the backsplash and say to yourself, “Hey I know that tile, it goes on a bathroom floor.” WRONG. Here it’s clever, it’s silly, it’s a little rascal and it looks fantastic.

The bathroom tile, SEGUE, is also unique. It’s small with a shimmer and just the sort of detail that makes you think, “this house could be my new artsy-fartsy home.”

There’s a laundry room. WHAT? A LAUNDRY ROOM. With a half-bath off to the side so you can tinker in your garden and pop inside as needed without tracking all of the outdoors inside across all of your gorgeous original hardwoods.

Two bedrooms and an office off the master round out the rooms in this 1,186-square-foot cottage. Think of the office as your creative workspace just waiting for your paintings and sculptures and other art forms that make you qualify for this neighborhood in the first place.

Speaking of this neighborhood, it’s the most fun place to roam. Creativity is evident everywhere and you’ll be inspired at all the different ways people bring it to life in the exteriors, landscaping, yard art and more.

Take a little bit longer of a stroll and you’ll land at the usual suspects – Fraternal Order of Eagles pool, White Rock Lake and Casa Linda shopping center with a Natural Grocers, a Starbucks, Torchy’s Tacos, and an Ulta for crying out loud.

You literally never have to leave your little Dallas Haven. You can bike everywhere. And walk. Stretch out those legs and thank your lucky stars you snagged this little updated cutie. With new HVAC, enclosed front porch and custom patio decking.

Sonya Velasquez with Dallas Ark has 8647 Fernando Way listed at $299,500.
