Best Craftsman Evaaah! That’s how Ged Dipprey brought this Winnetka Heights gem to our attention. And the Dave Perry-Miller agent is right. This three-bedroom, two-full-bathroom listing is the perfect Friday Five Hundred, offering an exceptional location and high design at a reasonable price.

“Frankly, this house is a gift listing,” says Dipprey. “Not to devalue my services, but let’s be real: Doesn’t this house sell itself? New everything and taken to the studs in 2015, I can’t think of a single design element that I don’t love!” 

Of course, the proof is in the pudding. And upon further inspection, we can see why Ged is so excited.

This darling blue little craftsman home at 820 N. Winnetka Ave. went under contract in just seven days. You might chalk that up to how hot this neighborhood is in north Oak Cliff, but there’s another reason we’re featuring this cutie for the Saturday Six Hundred. The sophisticated updates in this home are simply adorbs. The 1921-built home near W. Davis Street and N. Tyler Street has three bedrooms, three baths, and one half-bath in a roomy 2,454-square-foot open floor plan. It’s listed for $675,000 by April Allen of JP & Associates (more…)

Y’all already know that I love Craftsman homes, I am a sucker for Oak Cliff, and I am very, very lazy.

That’s why I am seriously in LOVE with 907 N. Winnetka. First, it’s in Kings Highway Conservation District, which is an amazing neighborhood! Second, this listing may say it was built in 1918, but on the inside, it’s all brand-spanking new. Third, you can get top-of-the-line interiors, an amazing front porch and a gorgeous backyard for only … $304,000! No joke, guys! All that stainless steel and marble, brand new hardwoods and tile, all in one of the best investment markets in Dallas for just $304,000.

Seriously, this home is such a beauty. The current owners took this house down to the studs and restored it, and my oh my, did they do a great job!  I love how they opened up the dining and living areas, but still kept some sense of separation with the half walls. And check out the built-ins! That sideboard with the marble and glass cabinets is such a wonderful touch to the dining room.

The kitchen, well, that’s what’s going to sell this house in my opinion. The marble counters and eat-in island are just perfect for entertaining, and if you’ve ever been to a function in North Oak Cliff, you’d know that this neighborhood of young families, established couples, and professionals LOVES to party. Add to that the high-end stainless appliances and you’ll be wanting for nothing. Plus, it’s super bright and airy!

With just over 1,900 square feet in this three-bedroom, two-bath home, you can bet that the bedrooms are sizable. That’s true for the master suite, which has these gorgeous corner windows.

Now, the master bath is a work of art, I think. It’s not often that you can put in a corner shower without it looking a bit haphazard, but pairing it with a claw-foot tub and even more marble in the double vanity, well, that’s a stroke of genius. The sliding doors to the closet are a seamless addition as well, making this bathroom look tailor-made.

The backyard is pretty stellar, too. Check out that patio! I can just imagine the great cocktail parties the new owner will throw back here! Just hang some cool lights from the pergola and voila! Instant entertainment space!
