D Sale of the Week: 4620 Southern Ave.
Nothing says “welcome home” quite like a brick and clapboard cottage, and this one in the Park Cities has a designer’s fingerprints on every square inch.
This charming brick and clapboard cottage, designed in 1936 by Charles Dilbeck, is owned by Dallas native and former D Home editor David Feld, who now lives in Connecticut and works in New York. (The house was also featured in D Home.) Every room of the just-under-2,000-square-foot cottage is a designer’s paradise, including the remodeled kitchen with sleek cabinetry, granite countertops, gourmet appliances, and skylight. A beautiful turreted staircase leads to two bedrooms—the master is on the first floor—and one serves as a study with charming views, bookcase-lined
wall, and faux fireplace. Among the bells and whistles: hardwood and seagrass floors, cedar-lined closets, sandstone counters in the baths, speakers in every room, large backyard with patio, flagstone terrace, and tended perennial garden. But the real treat with this home is the grounds: 50-year-old pecans and live oaks on a 55-by-117-foot deep lot. List price: $439,000.
