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? 

American Craftsman houses started showing up around the turn of the last century and made their way to Dallas as early as 1909. Some of the examples are grand, like our splurge; others more modest. Which one of these houses is your favorite?
