Becky Frey listed this adorable Devonshire Tudor cottage: Didn’t Last Through the Weekend

Adorable Updated Devonshire Tudor Cottage — Perfection!
by Karen Eubank at CandysDirt.com published on 05/06/2017

There are only a handful of truly walkable neighborhoods in Dallas. Our Saturday Seven Hundred is an adorable Devonshire Tudor cottage at 5518 W. Amherst Avenue. Walk Score gives it a rating of 89 and it doesn’t get much better than that in Dallas! This highly coveted neighborhood is just across from Inwood Village, minutes from downtown Dallas, the Dallas North Tollway, and Love Field. Location, location, location! Imagine walking a block to see a movie, eat at any number of great restaurants, and shop until you drop. The neighborhood has every advantage of city living with none of the drawbacks, and a real sense of community.

It’s getting harder and harder to find these lovely original Tudor cottages, especially one that has been totally updated, so you’re in luck today!

Built in 1940 this 2,094-square-foot charmer retains the original character with every new amenity added into the mix, resulting in a completely move in-ready home. We can’t think of a better place for newlyweds, a young family, or indeed empty nesters. We can’t tell you how many people we’ve run into lately that have grown weary of the big, empty suburban home now that their kids are grown, and are itching to get back to the city to enjoy all it offers. Expect a wide demographic lining up to see this one.

There are three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a great home office that could also double as a craft room, and the deal sealer for us is the screened porch. It’s absolutely perfect.

Stylish formals flank the entry in the traditional manner that you expect to see in a Tudor cottage. The hardwoods run through to the kitchen, something we always love to see. Maintaining the same flooring creates a great flow to a home.

The kitchen was remodeled by Adam Gonzales of Restorations of Dallas. The center island has loads of storage and a built-in microwave. Note the gorgeous marble that was run from countertop to ceiling, a trend we’ve seen lately. That seamless use of material creates a sense of elegance as well as spaciousness.

The kitchen was opened up to merge with the family area, which further opens up to the incredible screened porch. This is the place to enjoy your coffee first thing in the morning and to unwind after a long day with a glass of something cold and preferably bubbly. Can’t you just see a crisp fall evening by that fire?

Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s agent Becky Frey has this adorable Devonshire Tudor cottage listed for $799,000. With this location and that screened porch, we can’t see it lasting the weekend.
