This week’s Tuesday Two Hundred is pretty special. It doesn’t have a ton of bells and whistles, but it does have elegant finishing touches, a cool backyard, and a price tag you can live with – all the things you really want in a place to call home.

This week’s Tuesday Two Hundred is pretty special. It doesn’t have a ton of bells and whistles, but it does have elegant finishing touches, a cool backyard, and a price tag you can live with – all the things you really want in a place to call home.

With three bedrooms, one bathroom, and a two-car garage, it’s the perfect spot in  a great neighborhood for a small family.  

Built in 1951, “this Austin stone gem sits on a quiet street in the highly sought-after Elmwood neighborhood,” said Agent Jenni Stolarski with Compass.

Everything Is Going To Be O-Koi

Yeah, I’m kind of hung up on the koi pond. A quick Google search tells me that it’s less than $1,000 to dig one of these babies up in your backyard. Although, don’t try this at home. There are many requirements in terms of soil, lining, sun cover, and filtration that you’ll need to talk to an expert about before taking on a science experiment.

But wouldn’t it be cool if there was already one waiting for you in your lushly landscaped backyard?

There’s more than just the pond. The home at 1906 Newport is in immaculate condition, says Realtor Emily Ruth Cannon.

“The homeowners conscientiously updated the home’s new insulation, solar-powered outdoor lights, automatic garage, and gate entry, while preserving the original features, including the mauve-tiled bathroom, pristine hardwood floors, wood paneling in the bedroom, and Austin stone exterior,” Cannon said.

What Else You Got?

North Oak Cliff has some stunning homes, and there’s something really special about an older space that tells its own story, but also is updated to ensure safety and maintenance issues are covered.

While the Newport home is cozy, the lot is 6,882 square feet, so get ready for some outdoor parties.

“The home is ideal for entertaining,” Cannon said. “The large front windows bring in a lot of natural light to the living and dining area. The home is already prewired with speakers throughout. On a nice day, you could extend the living area by opening up the three doors to the backyard with a covered deck, water fountain, and pond.”

Dallas ISD schools in the area include Maria Moreno Elementary School, T.W. Browne Middle School, and Justin F. Kimball High School.

Jenni Stolarski with Compass has listed 1936 Newport Ave., Dallas, for $299,999.
