To love a bungalow in North Oak Cliff‘s Winnetka Heights Historic Conservation District is to accept imperfections. But not every bungalow requires a full-on restoration, and not every homeowner is up to the task.
This home at 315 N. Clinton, says listing agent Ged Dipprey, was a whole different ball of wax. When it was purchased, the front porch had been enclosed and made into an additional living area. But for the seller, that just wouldn’t do.
“Restored to original splendor at great expense, the expansive front porch boasts pine flooring and reestablishes the integrity of the Craftsman form,” Dipprey said, adding that the home now fits better into the fabric of the neighborhood. Sure, it sacrificed some square footage, but to those who love Arts & Crafts architecture, it’s totally worth it.
From the curb, it’s absolutely perfect. Inside, it only gets better.
