Why do people like looking at homes?  Why are there so many viewers on various sites that deal with homes and design and decoration?  Why do you read CandysDirt.com?  I’ll tell you why … it’s because we like the element of surprise.

Homes are simply sticks-and-bricks.  I know, I know — they come in different shapes and sizes but they all have an entry, living area, kitchen, hallways, bedrooms and bathrooms.  No surprise there … People love seeing a home that comes with a surprise.  Whether it is a hidden closet under the stairs, or a creative way to situate a kitchen that is what people crave.  We all want a surprise that makes the home unique and makes us want that home.

1512 Elmwood a

Deep in the heart of Oak Cliff is a swath of land that was once the Tennessee Farm Dairy. These gently rolling, tree-shaded hills sit above the banks of Cedar Creek and are now home to the Elmwood neighborhood.

On the Elmwood Branch greenbelt, our Tuesday Two Hundred is located near Wright Street and North Edgefield Avenue at 1512 Elmwood Blvd. This 1939 cottage sits among other 1930’s and 40’s homes, Tudors, and Craftsman bungalows.

This house is nicely updated in the kitchen and bathrooms, but maintains the charms of its era, like arched doorways and original hardwood floors. With two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,178 square feet, it’s a modest footprint. But it packs a lot of punch into its petite size, making the most of the space and exuding a cozy, cottage chic that is, frankly, adorable.
