Oak Cliff doesn’t have the stigma it used to. In fact, more young people are moving south of the Trinity River to buy their first homes than ever before. But that doesn’t mean Oak Cliff is all fixer-uppers and bungalows with bike lanes.
Kessler Park is as haute as ever, and this Canterbury Court home proves it. It’s been completely updated with an amazing kitchen, gorgeous living room, and a deck that is perfect for hosting parties come spring.
It’s listed by the Autrey Rhea Group of Ebby Halliday Realtors for $599,900, and I’d be surprised if it sells for less than $589,000. There may be an expert negotiator out there that can make the sellers leave of their logic, but it’s doubtful, especially considering how much work has been done to this 1929 tudor.
In all, 1310 Canterbury Court has gorgeous scraped hardwoods throughout the home, but the sunken living room really pops with curved steps that lead to a floor-to-ceiling tiled fireplace.
Some may wrinkle their nose at the absence of a mantle, but not me. I really love how the fireplace is both a work of art in the living room and the focal point for the dining area and kitchen, too, which are connected with the open floor plan.
Speaking of the kitchen, everything is updated with high-end appliances and materials. There’s a six-burner Wolf range, built-in Kitchen Aid refrigerator, and a built-in Miele espresso machine, which is a great way to skip the line at the coffeehouse altogether.
The master suite is so beautiful. I love the five-piece bathroom with the two separate vanities at different heights. It’s definitely not a one-size-fits-all bathroom, but it doesn’t go overboard with individual touches that might turn off buyers.
The backyard, which is hard to see in these twilight photos, has a great deck. It’s painted red, which is what you’ll do to the town if you host a party here!
