We love the sweet cottage style in a renovated North Oak Cliff house built in 1939 and reimagined with a darling aesthetic.

Located in the Elmwood neighborhood, the house at 1619 Melbourne Ave. offers updates galore, from new windows and updated electrical and plumbing to an on-trend kitchen that looks like it jumped off the pages of a design magazine. 

Despite its modest size — 1,352 square feet — this house has tons of function and flow with three bedrooms and one bathroom.

The North Oak Cliff neighborhood of Beckley Estates receives a fair amount of attention as an up-and-coming area of Dallas. But its southern neighbor, Cedar Oaks, is a hidden gem where buyers can find character-filled, affordable houses from the 1940s and 1950s. The famous wandering peacocks of Beckley Estates make their appearance here, too, among the hilly streets and arching shade trees.

Cedar Hills is located just east of Interstate 35 near the Dallas Zoo, and our Tuesday Two Hundred at 1505 Arizona Ave. is a darling example of the kinds of houses in the neighborhood. Built in 1949, this home is the recent recipient of a full-on renovation that marries period-specific details and original architecture with contemporary amenities.

The remodel touched every space in this charmer, which has two bedrooms, one bathroom, and 1,946 square feet.
