We’ve found a 1929 Irwindell cottage in Oak Cliff with over $115,000 in improvements and a totally youthful and fresh look inside. 

Our Tuesday Two Hundred at 3334 Irwindell Blvd. is situated on an elevated lot with tranquil view of trees within its Dells District neighborhood near West Jefferson Boulevard and South Westmoreland Road. Inside, the renovations are spot on, both behind-the-scenes and more visible. This home has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,172 square feet on one story, built in 1929. There will be two open houses this weekend on Saturday, May 5, from noon to 2 p.m. and Sunday, May 6, from 2-4 p.m. Want a sneak peek?

A Smaller Footprint Is Packed with Style In this Dells District Cottage | CandysDirt.com

Things may be bigger in Texas, but we’ve found a Dells District cottage that proves a modest footprint can provide everything you need. 

Our Tuesday Two Hundred is located at 3518 Virginia Blvd. in this historic Oak Cliff neighborhood. It is wonderfully renovated with some big “behind the scenes” work, including new plumbing, electrical, HVAC, and foundation in 2015. That’s peace of mind for a potential buyer. 

This house has two bedrooms, one hath, and 1,112 square feet on one story, built in 1935.

Irwindell

We love a great before-and-after, and our Tuesday Two Hundred tells a compelling story. This 1928 North Oak Cliff Tudor was uninhabitable until 2015, when huge renovations restored this beauty and made it into the cozy, stylish home you see today.

Located at 502 S. Westmoreland Rd. in the Irwindell neighborhood (just south of West Jefferson Boulevard), this Tudor is completely reimagined with an open concept floorplan and modern amenities buyers love, like a brand new kitchen with farm sink and open shelving. But the original character of the home shines, too, with details like glass doorknobs and restored fireplace.

“All the improvements were completed in August 2015 and made to reflect the charm and character of this late 20’s-built home in Irwindell,” said listing agent Mark Lucisano with Keller Williams—Dallas Park Cities. “This home is located one mile from Westmoreland DART station and all of the great shops and eats in Bishop Arts.”

It’s a modest footprint, with two bedrooms, one bathrooms, and 1,105 square feet, but this home packs a lot into that space and makes the most of its size. We’re impressed!
