Thursday Three Hundred: In Winnetka Heights, Get More Prairie Home For Your Money

Published April 26, 2012 by Joanna England

This prairie-style home at 402 N. Rosemont Ave. is an incredible value at $359K.

When you buy a home in Winnetka Heights, you’re getting so much more than a building on a piece of land. You’re buying into a very active community that looks out for one another, one that takes pride in its landscape.

One of the four living spaces inside 402 N. Rosemont.

Trust me: Oak Cliff was my beat in my reporting days. Winnetka Heights has an active neighborhood association which is an asset when you buy a home in a historic district.

And with one look at 402 N. Rosemont Ave. marketed by the Hewitt & Habgood group, you’ll have your pen and checkbook out. This prairie home is such a beauty (and a value!), with mature trees all over the lot, a gorgeous front porch made for sipping cold drinks during a hot summer and a cool koi pond in the back, three bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths, and a sleeping porch perfect for curling up with a good book!

The sleeping porch at 402 N. Rosemont has an excellent view.

Also, this stunner, built in 1912, has one of my favorite features in its master bathroom: A claw-foot cast-iron tub! It’s just begging for you to take a nice long soak and forget about your hard day!

One of my favorite old-timey features is claw-foot tubs!

Another selling feature is the second-story fireplace inside the master bedroom. So cozy!

And while I am not a fan of the cabinets, the kitchen is very clean, with a subway tile backsplash, granite countertops, and an amazing pantry perfect for showing off colorful jars of homemade preserves.

And you get all of this, folks, for $359,000. It’s an incredible price for such a well-maintained, immaculate home inside the popular 75208 Zip code.

Add to that, you’re crazy close to the Bishop Arts District, which is growing by leaps and bounds with new, chef-driven restaurants, popular bars, and fabulous shopping! And all you’ll need to get around is a bicycle! Can’t beat that!
