While there have been a few newer builds in Stevens Park Estates, we’re thrilled that so many of its original cottages remain. And this listing from Dave Perry-Miller’s Ged Dipprey is a fantastic example of the charm and beauty of this North Oak Cliff neighborhood.
It’s no wonder why we’re calling this carefully updated Stevens Park Estates home our Inwood National Bank Home of the Week. Take a look-see now!
With three bedrooms and two baths, this Stevens Park Estates home is a tidy and versatile cottage with a floor plan that works for just about every lifestyle. What we love are the updates and how they mesh so well with the original details, such as the rich hardwood floors, original gas-log fireplace, crown moulding, and the beautifully light-filled sunroom, which Dipprey says could double as a home office or playroom.
While the kitchen did get some attention in a recent refresh, much of the original cabinetry is intact. The upgrades include soapstone countertops, stainless steel appliances, and a walk-in pantry. Just beyond is a wonderfully cozy conversation corner and small breakfast area that lead to the backyard and covered patio.
The master suite is a great touch for a home built in 1938, and we love how much light comes through the windows even with energy-saving plantation shutters. The master bath has a slightly contemporary feel with chrome hardware and a full-sized shower.
Of course, the backyard is wonderfully open and features a covered back porch that is perfect for those late-night conversations with your neighbors, which will soon become friends. If you have kids, you can’t do much better than the wonderful DISD schools zoned for this neighborhood, which include Rosemont Elementary, Greiner Middle School, and Sunset High School.
