A renovated Tudor Revival house built in 1926, with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, on a 0.2-acre lot
This house is in Ravinia Heights, where many of the homes were built in the 1920s, in Tudor Revival or Spanish Colonial Revival style, and most have been well maintained. The neighborhood is near some of Dallas’s biggest draws: The Bishop Arts District, a shopping and dining destination, is less than three miles away; Trammell Crow Park, a green space running along either side of the Trinity River, is a little more than five miles away.
The property is a few blocks from the public Lida Hooe Elementary School and a mile and a half from W.E. Greiner Exploratory Arts Academy and Middle School, where students focus on the visual and performing arts.
Size: 1,188 square feet
Price per square foot: $337
Indoors: A paved path leads from the street to the bright yellow front door, set beneath a white-painted brick arch.
The door opens into a living room with oak floors, a fireplace with a brick surround, a wide window facing the street and high, pitched ceilings. This space is open to an eat-in kitchen with custom-designed cabinets and room for a small table near French doors that open to the backyard.
Between the kitchen and the living area is a laundry closet. Beyond, a hallway leads to the bedrooms and bathrooms: At one end of the hall is a guest room with space for a double bed and a desk; next door is a bathroom with a combined tub and shower lined with new green tile. At the other end of the hall is the primary suite, which has access to the rear deck. The bedroom is large enough to hold a queen-size bed; the bathroom has penny-tile floors and a glass-walled walk-in shower.
Outdoor space: The wood deck off the kitchen and primary bedroom has room for a dining table and a barbecue. It steps down to a grassy area with two large, mature trees that is enclosed by a wood fence. Next to the house is a driveway with a motorized gate.
Taxes: $7,632 (estimated)
