Sure, Winnetka Heights is one of the pricier neighborhoods in North Oak Cliff, with some of the larger Prairie-style homes going for $400K plus. If that’s a shade too rich for your blood, but you still want a spacious family home you can enjoy for years to come, then you’ll love this adorable traditional at 411 Montclair Ave.
This home is so adorable from the curb that you’ll just swoon when you see it! The bright red door and homey blue siding is so sweet! The arched stoop is just tremendously cute, too. But don’t let this home’s petite exterior fool you. Inside you’ll find three bedrooms, two full baths, and more than 2,100 square feet.
I think this home is super cute, and definitely stands out among the Arts and Crafts homes and the Prairie Four-squares that are quite prominent in Winnetka Heights. It’s marketed by David Griffin Realtor Crystal Gonzalez for $379,000, and has been on the market for just one week.
There are hardwood floors and fresh paint throughout the first floor, and beautiful period-style light fixtures that fit this 1930s traditional just right! The fireplace is perfect, too, and it, along with the rest of the first floor, sports fresh paint.
French doors separate the dining and living areas, and between the kitchen and dining room you’ll find a butler’s pantry that is perfect for storing your china collection and all those dishes you’re dying to use for your first dinner party. It eases you into the kitchen, which is completely updated with commercial-grade stainless steel appliances, fresh cabinets, and a breakfast area overlooking the covered rear porch and backyard.
Upstairs is where you’ll find the master suite, an addition that brings in a huge bedroom with tons of light, a separate seating area, a gigantic closet with tons of built-in cabinets, and a five-piece master bath. Thanks to some thoughtful construction, the pitch of the roof isn’t so severe as to create awkward spaces.
Outside you’ll find a large, lush backyard and a fantastic little covered porch, but you’ll notice one thing is missing — covered parking or a garage. Sure, there’s a little storage building, but there’s no secure parking. For some people, that’s a deal-breaker, but for those who were planning to bike everywhere in the first place, it’s not a huge problem. Of course, if you wanted to add covered parking in the future, you’ll have to jump through a few hoops because this home is located inside a historic conservation district.
In all, though, this home is fantastic for someone who is looking for a family place in a great neighborhood in North Oak Cliff! What do you think?
