So, you love all the charm of older homes but the idea of all the unending maintenance is a huge bummer for you. I have one word: PREACH. That’s why we left Junius Heights when one thing after another, then another, happened and our dream home turned into a money pit, and guys, I wanted to enjoy living in a house, not a construction zone!
So yeah, I have feelings about that. But what if you could enjoy the charm on the outside of a 1940s Tudor home in the adorable Montclair Acres area of North Oak Cliff without having to lift a finger to fix the inside? That’s our Thursday Three Hundred for you! It’s a brand new listing by Oak Cliff’s Hewitt & Habgood group at 829 N. Montclair. It’s listed for $320,000 and is just so perfect inside that you could squeal!
This gorgeous three-bedroom, two-bath, 1,609-square-foot home is perfect for a family with elementary-age kids, as it’s close to Rosemont Elementary School, a rapidly improving campus catering to the 75208 Zip code. Its open floor plan has excellent flow between the beautiful and spacious living area, through the dining area with some of the most perfect transitional pendant lights, to the completely updated kitchen.
Boasting granite counters, custom cabinets, glass tile backsplash, and stainless steel appliances, this kitchen is definitely going to be the center of the home. I love the modern look inside this 74-year-old stunner, which offsets the rustic farm-style table and the gorgeous wood floors. And homes this age usually have zero storage, so you’ll be pleasantly surprised to see that full-sized pantry.
I adore the way these homeowners have decorated the master suite. It’s tasteful and understated, but doesn’t lack cool details that speak to the seller’s style. Check out that bedside lamp, which is a repurposed landscape lantern! Genius-level stuff, guys! And don’t you love that mirrored door used as a vanity mirror in the bedroom? So cool.
The master bath is pretty, but kind of boring. Still, it’s renovated and that’s a huge deal when you consider that many homes this age don’t even have a second bath. So yeah, it’s perfect! Dual vanities and a shower/tub combo with what looks like travertine tile. Good stuff!
The backyard is huge, perfect for a garden (or chickens!) and there’s a privacy fence. That’s a plus, especially considering that it ups the security ante, along with the updated security system inside. You’ll also love the new low-e windows, too.
