Thursday Three Hundred, Jo’s Take: 2020 Marydale is a Deal For Just $289K

Published May 24, 2012 by Joanna England

Built in 1941, 2020 Marydale Dr. has plenty of charm and tons of updates.

When we talk about Oak Cliff, we talk a lot about Kessler Park and Winnetka Heights. But it’s time to give Stevens Park Estates a little love because there’s such great value in the area, such as this 1941 Austin stone house at 2020 Marydale Drive marketed by the Hewitt & Habgood Realty Group.

The lots, which are huge in Stevens Park, are often full of old oaks and immaculate landscaping. On Marydale, you’ll find several perfect examples, including 2020 Marydale, which has an epic outdoor living space complete with pergola. Start a little fire in the chiminea on cool nights and it’s instantly cozy.

The insides aren’t too shabby, either. You get plenty of living space in this almost 1,900-square-foot abode, including a game room with plenty of space for a pool table.

The kitchen, well, I’m picky when it comes to kitchens. I love the iridescent backsplash, the clean cabinets, the bay window, and the stainless steel appliances. The paint and the tile floor are kind of meh, though. Still, it’s got more positives than negatives.

There are two bedrooms and two fully remodeled baths in this home, which is a feat in and of itself. Bathrooms in these homes tend to be painfully small, so plenty of good updates will help buyers see past the closet-sized commode.

But think of it this way, they’ll be spending most of their time outside anyway, right?
