Tuesday Two Hundred: Dilbeck Darling Near Bishop Arts for Less Than $250,000. Why I Love Dallas Real Estate!

Published January 18, 2012 by Candy Evans

Remember the Dilbeck ranch, PaigeBrooke, in Westlake that was built by Ted Dealey and moved in six huge chunks to avoid the wrecking ball? John Charles Stevens Dilbeck is one of the area’s most famous and treasured architects, and anyone who DARES tear down a Dilbeck home quickly becomes homeowner non grata. So it is with great pride I offer you today’s Tuesday $200K: a Dilbeck home at 411 North Montreal with updated kitchen, second floor master, beautiful hardwoods and all the interior architectural delights that make his homes so very special. Even better, the backyard: a modern oasis with pool, spa and custom made storage building. Inside this charmer you will get 1786 square feet with circa 1941 touches including an oversized Dilbeck fireplace and multi levels, both Dilbeck trademarks. He loved the quirky farmhouse feel, and often had one room flow into another as if the home was built from a single great room. The square footage does not include the fun sunroom. This home is minutes from the Bishop Arts and Davis Street restaurant scene. I spent yesterday with developer Jim Lake, the man who made the Dallas Design District explode and he is so bullish on North Oak Cliff and Bishop Arts he could pop. I’m writing a story on the area for Texas Monthly, so stay tuned. All I can say is this: $248,500. GRAB IT!
