A home made for entertaining doesn’t have to be huge, but it does have to be well designed. Layout, scale, and thoughtful planning matter more than sheer space, and when the 1,468 square foot home on Gibsondell Avenue was updated, the designer took all of that into account.
Situated on the west side of Oak Cliff, the home's exterior details grab your attention immediately: a large picture window, midcentury front door, and a custom blue-gray color with white-wood trim that you can’t help but love. The 1948 bungalow has a modern layout with smooth-flowing transitions from room to room, with updated dark wood floors and a painted-brick fireplace that show off the home’s character.
Natural light pours into every room, as there are plenty of floor-to-ceiling windows. This combined with the light color palette and high ceilings, make the living spaces feel open and bright — ideal for family gatherings and parties.
Perhaps the best part of this home however, is the peace of mind it offers. It has all new electric, plumbing, HVAC, and roof as of 2017 and comes with a homeowner’s warranty. You get the best of both worlds: modern comfort with vintage charm.
The galley-style kitchen is connected to the family room so you never feel like you’re too far from family and friends. It has been fully customized with brand-new stainless steel appliances and features a gas range with ample counter and storage space.
When you head out to back, prepare to be impressed. The huge backyard is shaded by mature oak trees and offers endless possibilities for home additions, expansions, or outdoor parties.
The house is listed at a reduced price of $319,500 with Johnny Mowad of Ebby Halliday Realtors. Schedule a tour before it’s snatched off the market.
