Oak Cliff home near all the hot spots boasts a special bonus
Here’s a spacious home in a sought-after neighborhood, close to shopping, restaurants and downtown Dallas: 806 Knott Place in Kessler Park, priced at $459,000. But its best feature may be a bonus room suitable for a number of family situations.
With four bedrooms, three full and one half bath, and a mother-in-law or guest suite that has a separate living room and kitchen, this home has plenty of amenities to attract a family needing room to grow. The home is located near the Sylvan Thirty development, as well as hot spots like the Belmont Hotel, Smoke, Chicken Scratch and The Foundry, so dining and entertainment are only minutes away.
This 3,000-square-foot 1956 rambler has been updated with care and consideration, says listing agent Kathy Hewitt. It sits on a lot with mature trees, which provide plenty of shade. It has been lovingly maintained by the sellers, and it shows.
“The owners opened up the space from the kitchen into the living and dining rooms so that they could better enjoy their family time with their children,” says Dave Perry-Miller Realtor Melissa O’Brien, who is co-listing with Hewitt. “They added hardwood floors and lightened up the kitchen cabinetry, which really changed the mood of that space.
“The bedroom wing was already nicely renovated when they purchased the home, so they looked after some of the not-so-exciting items that make the home both beautiful to live in and mechanically sound. It’s like adding tires to your car — an expense no one truly appreciates unless you’re the one driving the car!”
The home has spacious formals and huge windows, beautiful floors, and plenty of storage. Those windows flood the whole home with light, and a good flow makes the place easy to live in.
The master bedroom is bright, and it’s attached to an even better bathroom, which has been thoroughly updated. It features a jetted tub and separate frameless glass shower with travertine floors and a marble tub surround. The finishes add a modern touch without compromising the home’s traditional feel.
“The star of this show to me is the attached guest suite,” O’Brien says. “They truly use it as a mother-in-law suite. With a full kitchen, bath and nice living space, it’s such a wonderful place to have for Mom, guests or that surly teenager who might need a little more room to stretch.”
