Imagine if the original inhabitants of this 1926 cottage at 5238 Ridgedale Avenue walked in the doors today, what would they say? Wow, I never knew this home could seem so spacious. Where’d the walls go? Where is the China cabinet? Sure, the interior has changed since the 1920s, but the traditional charm of this M Streets cottage still exists.
Nestled in east Dallas’ Greenland Hills neighborhood, this pier and beam brick veneer home has two bedrooms and two baths spread over 1,663 square feet. The hardwood floors and brick fireplace are original (and fabulous), but the rest of the home has been completely remodeled to bring a bright and open layout inside without sacrificing the cottage charm native to the home.
Improvements include Low-E windows, new HVAC unit, tankless water heater, and updated kitchen and bathrooms. The sellers put in all new plumbing, electrical, and lighting, which is a huge load off the next owners’ shoulders for sure.
The kitchen features brand new cabinets, a quartz waterfall island that seats four as a breakfast bar, and Kitchen-Aid stainless steel appliances including built-in microwave, double oven, gas-burner stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, and built-in wine cooler.
The spacious master suite has oversized French doors leading to the large, shaded backyard and spa-like bathroom with modern dark wood vanity, quartz countertop and tile floors.
It’s zoned for Dallas ISD’s Mockingbird Elementary, Long Middle School, and Woodrow Wilson High School, and located minutes from Central Expressway near Henderson Ave.
