2819 W 9th A

North Oak Cliff is a treasure trove of architecturally significant homes. Charles Dilbeck is one notable name in Dallas architecture, and from 1932 to 1970, he designed more than 600 houses in the city, recognizable for their welcoming presence, rough-hewn architecture, and romantic details, like turrets, balconies, multiple chimneys and decorative brickwork, according to Preservation Dallas.

Several of his homes are in North Oak Cliff’s L.O. Daniel neighborhood. Our Tuesday Two Hundred is just west of this area, at 2819 W. 9th St., near Davis and Westmoreland, near Beverly Hills. This home is not a Dilbeck, but parts of it echo his style, a 1950’s 2-1 with 1,419 square feet, sitting on 0.33 acres of land on Coombs Creek.

Glenridge Estates Midcentury

Today’s Tuesday Two Hundred takes us to Walnut Hill and Marsh lanes in Northwest Dallas, where homeowners have transformed a 1,132-square-foot cottage built in 1951 into an appealing, fresh space that stands out in the neighborhood.

The Glenridge Estates property at 3930 Beechwood Ln. in Midway Hollow makes good use of its footprint, with two bedrooms, two living rooms, and an open floorplan in the common areas.

Glenridge Estates Midcentury

The exterior is transformed with natural stone and wood siding, painted a fetching blue color, and the freshly poured driveway has a crushed stone center in a deep charcoal color that corresponds with the garage door.

This home has a few features that are often considered less desirable in the North Texas market, like only one bathroom, a one-car garage, and a modest footprint. But the renovation has included lots of bells and whistles that may help potential homebuyers overlook them: handscraped hardwood floors; granite countertops, soft-close drawers, and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen; and a good-sized backyard with mature trees and a covered barbecue area with a stone bench and stone counter with built-in grill.

This Glenridge Estates cottage was listed Jan. 14 by Richard Guilliams with Luxe Estates Realty for $279,900.
