Stevens ParkStevens Park Village is one of my favorite areas of North Oak Cliff, nestled between Colorado Boulevard and the edge of the cliff. The wide, heavily treed streets are welcoming and the Austin-stone-and-brick-houses that predominate have an intimate, quaint feel. You’ll glimpse killer views of downtown from Stevens Park Village, and neighbors get friendly at two local parks.

The older residences in the neighborhood of 176 houses were built between 1939 and 1941. Fifteen were built by Charles Dilbeck, an architect who had a way of creating imminently livable, friendly spaces.

Today’s Tuesday Two Hundred at 2329 W. Colorado Blvd., although not a Dilbeck, is a perfect example of what Stevens Park Village has to offer. Built in 1941, this three bedroom, two bath stone-and-wood cottage has beautiful hardwood floors, a fireplace, arched doorways, and corner cupboards. It is 1,541 square feet, and newly listed by Nancy Gonzales with David Griffin & Company for $249,900.
