Bring your ideas for custom paint or move right in to 4926 Elsby Avenue. Original touches around every corner combine with a lofted expansion to the master bedroom suite, making this Bluffview charmer a fun mix of the old and the new. This home is unassuming from the street, appearing small and quaint. But, upon entry, you will be surprised by the spaciousness of the interiors. Few cottages in this Briarwood neighborhood offer this much square footage or amenities.


After approaching the traditional exterior and stepping through the imported front door inset with floral stained-glass accents, you’re met by a floating staircase composed of wood, metal and glass. It’s a total plot twist. And it foreshadows other surprises that this home has in store.


You feel at home in the formal living and dining areas, with a gas fireplace, abundant natural light, hardwood floors and plenty of space. But climb the staircase to the full-floor master suite and suddenly it’s as if you’re on vacation, nestled in your own private hideaway. The cabin-like suite is draped with reclaimed hard woods from an old building in east Texas. There is a sitting area, vaulted tongue-and-groove ceiling, a walk-in closet. Inside the adjoining private bath you’ll find double sinks, a jetted tub and walk-in shower with rain showerhead. A thoughtfully placed skylight adds brightness. There is even a hidden door to a large attic for storage or additional closet space.


Downstairs, the house continues to unfold in a neutral-toned kitchen featuring granite countertops, stainless-steel appliances and a center island with breakfast bar. The island is easily the heart of the home, serving as command central for dinner prep, gab sessions and quick bites at breakfast. The kitchen island overlooks a small family room and wood-burning fireplace. Located off the family room is a sunroom and separate utility room, flexible spaces that could be set as a dining room, sitting area, office and playroom.


Even more flexible is the detached guesthouse in the home’s backyard. Converted from the original garage, it includes a living area, kitchenette, bedroom and small bath with standing shower. The tiles are ready for a cosmetic makeover or the space could be converted back to a garage, but, it is overflowing with potential. It could be an ideal space for an in-law suite, office, art or music studio, or rental property for residual income. As a guesthouse, it’s a dream for anyone who has a side hustle or needs extra space and privacy.


The two downstairs bedrooms are also flex spaces. There is full bath with charming tiling at the end of the hallway and a separate powder bath near the kitchen. One of the bedrooms has French doors opening to the sunroom which makes for a great study or media den, if desired. On nice days, take the party to the backyard and set a festive table on the deck. Established landscaping outline the yard’s perimeter, making it feel like an oasis despite being so close to the shops and eateries at Inwood Village and Lover’s Lane. Jose, Neighborhood Services, Shin Sei, 7-Eleven, antique shops, Providence School, and many others are within walking distance. And with easy access to the Dallas North Tollway and other main arteries of the city, life couldn’t be better here in this neighborhood. This is a great time to buy.
