Winnetka Heights Bungalow

There’s nothing quite like a well-done Craftsman home. This architectural style, popularized around the turn of the century as an act of rebellion against industrialization, emphasizes the handiwork best produced by skilled tradesmen — thus dubbed “Arts & Crafts” or “American Arts” by many practitioners. Handmade details of wood and stone are profligate in these homes, and the style itself has a uniquely American cachet, coming in a close second to Colonial Revival as a trademark of our nation’s architectural heritage.

And from the street, this gorgeous Winnetka Heights bungalow in one of North Oak Cliff‘s most popular neighborhoods is all tradition and history. Inside, however, the sellers have put a little glam spin on traditional Arts & Crafts style. Listed by Crystal Gonzalez of David Griffin & Company Realtors, it’s easy to see why it’s our High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans.

Winnetka Heights Bungalow

There’s nothing quite like owning a Craftsman to make you feel like you’re living the charmed life. 

Our Thursday Three Hundred is a Winnetka Heights bungalow in North Oak Cliff with a wide and welcoming front porch. Located at 414 S. Willomet Ave. near West Jefferson Boulevard and South Polk Street, this house offers a handsome marriage of old and new. For example, original refinished hardwood floors gleam against a newer decorative slate tile fireplace, which fits the vintage aesthetic of this house nicely. 

This bungalow has two bedrooms, one bathroom, and 1,392 square feet on one story, built in 1945.
