Some homes just take your breath away, and 1031 N. Madison Avenue in Oak Cliff is one of them. The high ceilings, gleaming floors, numerous windows and wraparound porch make a great first impression.
Original details abound, from built in bookshelves and cabinetry, to light fixtures, the hex tile on the butler’s pantry floor and French doors to the dining room.
This 1924 brick home with slate roof has notable features in each space. The oversized front porch have beveled glass doors to the entry, the living room has an alcove ceiling, French doors lead to the dining room, the master suite has a master suite, the hall bath still has the original cast-iron sink.
Even the utility room has something distinct – a brick paver floor including a brick stamped “1924.”
The home also offers two things that many want and few get in Dallas: a downtown view from the front porch and a two-car garage with workbench. With three bedrooms and two baths, this home is listed for $315,000.
