Mayflower Front

You remember we posted about this cozy two-story home in Oak Cliff’s lovely Stevens Park Estates neighborhood. The owners have decided to do some sprucing up before leasing out this incredible home.

I can’t wait to see what this super-cute two-bedroom, three-bath home will look like after renovations, because it was pretty incredible last time we looked. Built in 1935, this incredible 2,638-square-foot home has formal living and dining rooms, as well as a beautiful updated kitchen with stainless steel appliances.

What you’ll love most about this incredible stucco home is the proximity to the recently renovated Stevens Park Golf Course, as well as how close this home is to downtown. Just of Hampton and Fort Worth Avenue, this home is perfect for city dwellers who want to try on Oak Cliff for size. With Sylvan | Thirty opening up soon nearby with a fantastic supermarket and delicious restaurants, as well as tons of amazing growth in West Dallas, huge strides in Oak Cliff schools, including Rosemont Elementary and Greiner Exploratory Arts Academy, you’ll find something to love about North Oak Cliff.

The formals feature lovely warm faux finishes on the walls and plenty of windows to let in a lot of natural light. If you’re looking for a great place for your family and Fido or Fifi, this would be a great fit!

The kitchen has some great updates, including fresh cabinets, granite counters, and stainless steel appliances. I love the cool wallpaper, too, which is high-impact and very abstract. This is a fresh listing from LocalDwelling.com, as you can see from the ice still on the ground outside this lovely stucco home.

Bison Trail Front

Backyards are great and all, but sometimes you just don’t have the wherewithal to mow the lawn every Saturday, or deal with the hassle of a pool. That doesn’t mean you have to give up having a backyard, per se. If you want lovely, relaxing views without all that hassle, then you should consider this gem at 919 Bison Trail in Stevens Wood.

Bison Trail Living

This is a great neighborhood right off of Stevens Park Golf Course, a public course in North Oak Cliff that has been recently restored to epic beauty and playability. This home has two bedrooms, two baths, almost 1,700 square feet, a two-car garage and fantastic golf course views from its elevated deck. Just below the deck is a wonderful stone patio with fire pit — no better place to roast marshmallows during the first cold snap!

Bison Trail Kitchen

Marketed by Phillip Walker of Keller Williams Elite for $399,000, this North Oak Cliff home is recently updated with tons of great features that make it move-in ready. While the listing calls this home a Midcentury Modern, I’d say it fits more in the realm of post-war contemporary. It lacks a lot of features you would usually spot in a mid-mod, including a flat or angled roof, open floor plans, wood grain accents, and atomic-era lighting.

Bison Trail Master bath

Still, this home has a wonderfully bright, warm, contemporary feel with updates in the kitchen and baths that will make any new owner happy. Fresh tile, counters, and a luxury master suite make this home a real catch. Add in the amazing view and it’ll fly off the market!

610 Tenna Loma Front

This house is already so cute. I usually hate it when people say this, but it really does have great bones.

Marketed by Mike Bates, 610 Tenna Loma Court in West Kessler Heights has been expertly maintained and is ready for some color. There are three bedrooms, two baths, and just over 1,800 square feet in this home. You’re within a hop, skip, and jump from Stevens Park Golf Course, and the Bishop Arts District is just a short bike ride away. It’s on the market for a recently reduced $237,500.

610 Tenna Loma Living

When I first saw the interiors of this house, I loved how the living and dining areas had been opened up. It is so refreshing to see so much open space in a home built in 1940. The fireplace is gorgeous, and there are tons of great built-ins. Truly, this home is perfect for the book collector.

610 Tenna Loma Dining

I love the French doors that separate the living and dining areas. It’s perfect to create some intimacy in a space. While the floors, which were recently refinished, sparkle like new, there are tons of great period features such as arched doorways.

610 Tenna Loma Kitchen

Now, I’ve seen lots of kitchens like this one in North Oak Cliff. A new granite countertop has been added, but you’ve still got the same awkward layout that would only make sense if you had a gigantic, antiquated gas range and an actual ice box. This kitchen would definitely benefit from a full-on gutting, and you’ll have put your mark on it to boot!

610 Tenna Loma Sunroom

There’s a great sunroom attached to the kitchen, with plenty of light. Of course, you can deal with the linoleum floors later, probably after you redo the kitchen, right?

The best part about this house isn’t in the photos or the listing information, though. It’s the neighborhood. This area has banded together in recent years to improve quality of life. That’s thanks in large part to great leadership and fantastic residents.

2041 Mayflower (left) and 2036 Old Orchard (right) in Stevens Park Village

Jenni Stolarski and Rob Puckett of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s are marketing two Stevens Park Estates homes that back up to one another and sit next to the fifth green of Stevens Park Golf Course —2036 Old Orchard and 2041 Mayflower — as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a family to be really close without moving in with each other.

Think of it like that final scene in My Big Fat Greek Wedding where the newlyweds move in next to the Parthenon-like home of the Portokaloses — you can have your mother and father (or in-laws!) right next door to hang out with the kids, but they’re not hanging around in their underwear, griping about the plumbing in the mother-in-law suite of your very own abode.

 

Here’s what you do: Set the family up in the three-bedroom, two-bathroom home on Old Orchard and have the grandparents in the two-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bath bungalow on Mayflower. Both homes are in tip-top shape, with the Old Orchard house marketed for $335,000 and the Mayflower home (goes on MLS Friday) in the neighborhood of $339,000. Those are amazing prices for corner lots in a very popular area!

There’s no alley to separate the two homes, which together, Stolarski says, sit on around 3/4 of an acre. That’s plenty of room for everyone to run around.

Now, the Mayflower home is gorgeous and updated, with tons of great finishes. Every room is lovely, and it’s just asking for someone with a whole lifetime’s worth of beautiful objects to fill its shelves and nooks.

The Old Orchard home screams “family,” with the brick floors, eat-in kitchen, and vegetable garden. There’s tons of character, too!

And the location is amazing. North Oak Cliff is booming, and it really doesn’t get much better than living next to Stevens Park Golf Course, which was recently redesigned and is such a gem.

Personally, I think it’s a great idea for the family who wants to stay super close. However, I prefer my in-laws in Forney. IJS.

If it were possible to kidnap a house, I’d be down in North Oak Cliff in a heartbeat with a truck.

Actually, I want the fireplace and I want it NOW!

When I first saw the listing, which is new, I about died. I emailed the agent feverishly and asked who the interior designers were who owned this home — so talented!

“The owners are a wonderful young couple with an eye for the aesthetic,” said Brian.  “Where else can a person get 2700 updated square feet with a pool on an excellent block of an excellent neighborhood for $369k???” 

And as an indication of how wonderful the community is, the neighbor’s kids set up an OJ stand and played the violin for guests at Brian’s Open House this past Sunday!

I’m probably going to O/D you on photos, but here’s what you need to know about 1015 North Clinton Ave:

It’s in the beautiful Kessler area of North Oak Cliff, walking distance to the Stevens Park Golf Course and significant parks, as well as to the Bishop Arts District. Period details include a large brick fireplace in the sunny living room, hardwoods throughout, and spacious room sizes. A large first floor room serves as either a study or third bedroom, in addition to a great family room with access to the sparkling pool. Two-car garage has a bonus. Built in 1924, pier and beam, updated, three bedrooms, three baths.

We should really start a CandysDirt wager on how long before this angel goes under contract, but I think that might be illegal, especially when I post it. But seriously, I bet there’s a full price contract come Sunday.

Just tell that darling neighbor kid to get out his violin! (I played violin! It’s hard!)

Price — you won’t believe: $369,000.
