Established in 1910, Winnetka Heights is one of the largest and oldest historical districts in Dallas. Prairie and Craftsman houses dominate the area in North Oak Cliff.

The for-sale home at 701 S. Clinton Ave., built in 1930, is one such Craftsman. With curb appeal like this, including tidy landscaping, era-appropriate house numbers, and cheerful blue front door, it's hard to pass up.

Beyond that wide front porch is a front living room with original fireplace and multiple windows. Those gorgeous pine hardwoods run throughout most of the rest of the house. The dining room has coffered ceilings and an intimate sitting area. There's an additional living room in the back of the house.

The open kitchen is thoroughly modern, with a commercial-grade range and convection oven, granite counters, and ample cabinetry. Included on the first floor is the spacious master bedroom and en suite bathroom with a beautiful clawfoot tub.

Upstairs are three bedrooms, full bathroom, craft room and laundry area with black-and-white checkerboard floors, and a sleeping porch. Several of these rooms overlook the private backyard, which offers a pergola-covered spa, detached two-car garage, and a small shop area. There is also plenty of grassy green space with mature trees for kids and pets to play.

All told the house has five bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 2,958 square feet. It's on the market for $534,900, listed with Brian Ellison of Clay Stapp + Co.
