It’s not every day you come across a Kidd Springs Craftsman with this level of improvement. But thanks to the owner, it has been meticulously maintained and updated to the highest degree. Just ask listing agent, Cody Farris with Coldwell Banker. He says, “It’s rare to find a fully updated home in Kidd Springs, where not only the kitchen, but all baths are updated.”

Civil Engineer With An Eye For Restoration

In fact, the owner is a civil engineer and went beyond cosmetic items to include numerous infrastructure improvements.

“Not everyone has an eye for renovating an old home in a manner that is faithful to the period, but this seller did,” adds Farris. “They even kept pieces of the home’s original wallpaper which they have hanging in the living room.”

Splurge vs. Steal: Two Historic Craftsman in Dallas with Character and Big Updates | CandysDirt.com

We adore the look of a historic Craftsman and certain neighborhoods in Dallas contain quite a few beautiful examples. 

For today’s Splurge vs. Steal, we’re looking at two Craftsman houses, one in North Oak Cliff and the other in Old East Dallas. They have the hallmarks of this style of house, including a cozy feel, welcoming front porches with supporting square columns, shingle siding, remarkable handiwork, and a simplicity of design that emphasizes natural elements. What’s not to love?
