I love guest cottages! It’s the perfect solution for older kids who come back home from college for winter or summer break and are too used to being independent to have them in close proximity with civilized people.
Oh, don’t pretend like you don’t know what I’m talking about!
Seriously, though, they are great for long- and short-term guests, in-laws, and even as studios or offices for work-at-home types. So when someone else sees the value in a guest cottage and chooses to add one to their property, I give them a little virtual pat on the back. That’s exactly what the sellers of 1135 N. Winnetka Ave. deserve.
Listed by Robert Kucharski of David Griffin & Co. Realtors, this Kessler Square Tudor is an excellent value at $549,900. There’s 3,182 square feet of living space — not including the 642-square-foot guest house — with three bedrooms and two and a half baths.
This was built in 1924 and renovated to a fantastic level of comfort. Thanks to the steep pitch of the roof, this house has some great little nooks, perfect for raising a munchkin or two. I also love the kitchen, which features Bosch, Thermidor, and Miele appliances along with gorgeous white cabinets.
If you even think you might have an inkling about buying this house, you need to move fast: Homes in North Oak Cliff — and Kessler Park, especially —are moving at a record pace, and soon all the updated ones that are priced right will be gone!
