You could tour properties all over Dallas this weekend and not see anything like 1803 Marydale Drive in Stevens Park Estates. This Dilbeck-inspired home, offered for $460,000 by Ged Dipprey of Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate, provides a first-hand experience with Dilbeck’s influence on design.
Upon your arrival, follow the meandering stone pathway that leads you through whimsical double front doors and invites you to exchange the coziness of the vestibule for the home’s spacious formals with gleaming hardwood flooring.
A light-filled hallway guides you to an impressive beamed-ceiling bonus room that makes for a terrific art gallery or a possible third bedroom. The hallway continues to a comfortable den that connects to both the master and guest bedrooms. French doors provide access from the den to an expansive dry-stacked courtyard that anchors the home to its beautiful natural setting. Spend some time there on a cool spring evening and it won’t take long to find out what a neighborly community North Oak Cliff is.
Many facets of the home have been lovingly restored to pay homage to yesteryear, such as the awesomely vintage kitchen with eye-popping colors and a quaint eat-in breakfast nook. The modern chef is sure to appreciate the vintage Chambers stove, which offers an unrivaled cooking experience.
Adjacent to the kitchen, and hidden behind original wood double doors, you will discover the charming “chess room,” as it is referred to by the owners. The room’s romantic fireplace and built-in shelves make for a perfect study, children’s play room, or secondary living space. A charming Dutch door provides convenient access to the breezeway that connects to the brilliantly redesigned garage that functions both as an entertainment pavilion and functional workshop complete with an artistic steel cargo cage.
With close proximity to Stevens Park Golf Course, the Bishop Arts District, Downtown, and the new Sylvan Thirty retail development, this home presents its new owners the opportunity to experience the best North Oak Cliff has to offer!
