Hidden Details Make This Oak Cliff Cottage a Keeper

Share News:

This Oak Cliff cottage isn’t just cute, it’s cool.

Like bathroom-under-the-stairs-and-secret-storage-off-the-formal-living-complete-with-Scooby-Doo-style-bookcase cool. 

Renovated in 2017, the current owner apparently lives in bubble wrap because it still looks brand new. 

It’s updated from top to bottom with a large, modern kitchen, two renovated bathrooms, and that top secret, super fun half bath under the stairs. (Listing agent DeCarla Anderson rightfully calls that a great use of space and it is. Like we all need one more spot to store our Swiffers. NO THANKS.)

If you’re into that wide-open feel, you found it. Add to it the fact that there’s one gorgeous type of flooring – ceramic wood plank – throughout the main living areas and suddenly open feels even more opener. (Totally grammatically correct.)

In the bedrooms, you’ll find plush carpet. “OH THE HUMANITY!!!! WHY???,” asks the anti-carpeter.

Well, upstairs it helps minimize sound (especially if you live with a lead foot) and downstairs it’s in the massive master bedroom which keeps those sweet little feet toasty in the middle of winter. I mean, sure you could get an area rug, but this house comes with a built-in area rug also known as CARPET. 

Open spaces are always an invitation to party or once you hit your 30s, we call it “hosting.” This house is perfect for that.

Plus there are lots of details for your guests to ooh and aah over. Like the decorative tile wall in the formal dining, rustic wood beam in the kitchen, rounded mega-archway leading into the kitchen, aforementioned secret passageway in the formal living, or next-level lighting that Anderson pointed out.

Seriously. Every fixture was very carefully placed in this space and it makes it feel special. Don’t we all wanna feel special? Of course, we do.

Do yourself a favor and call Anderson or her co-listing agent, John Barrett, and check out all 1,957 square feet of this three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom house at 2518 Kingston Street with the super sunny front door.  It was JUST reduced to $319,900. Steal it.
