There are lots of reasons to love Oak Cliff. In addition to being home to the bustling (and still growing) Bishop Arts District, this South Dallas borough boasts proximity to downtown, charming historic homes, and some of the best prices-per-square-foot one is likely to find in Dallas-Fort Worth.

Located in Winnetka Heights — one of Oak Cliff’s most popular, not to mention prettiest, neighborhoods — 202 S. Edgefield Dr. is a gorgeous example of what a little TLC can do for a nearly century-old home. Built in 1925 and extensively renovated in 2015, this two-story Craftsman gives a great first impression, featuring a mature tree in the front for shade, a newly replaced roof, and a lovely shade of gray paint. Best of all, a wrap-around porch provides a cozy sitting area on the front and side of the home.

Inside, the house has original hardwood floors covering nearly every inch of its 2,384 square feet. Downstairs, there’s a living room with a brick fireplace, a dining room, and a study. The kitchen has been updated, with stainless steel appliances (including a gas cooktop) and stone countertops. Original details like tall floor boards and wood window casings are to be expected of a home of this vintage, though not necessarily this well-cared for.

The smallest of the four bedrooms is on the first level, with the rest up the beautifully finished stairs on the second floor. The home’s three bathrooms have also been updated, with fresh white subway tile and era-appropriate penny rounds on the floor.

The small backyard is a great project for a green-thumbed buyer. Reducing the size of the deck to make room for more grass and landscaping, as well as enhancing the existing fire pit, would go a long way in making the space more inviting.

Listed by Landon Burke of JP & Associates Uptown, the house is on the market for the appealing price of $389,000.
