Development of Hampton Hills began in 1924. The new neighborhood would be accessible to the city of Dallas via the Oak Cliff street car line, making it convenient for tradesmen and middle managers of local companies who wanted to be close to their employers. Billed as “Oak Cliff’s Ideal Home Place,” the neighborhood was developed by Alf W. Sanders, who set up a sales office for his Hampton Hills Realty Company in a small Tudor-style building on Tilton (now Wilton) Street. Sanders built many of the neighborhood homes in the craftsman and Tudor styles, with small garages standing behind them. The picturesque wood-sided and brick and stone cottages had a charming, storybook quality about them. Even today, fine examples of stained glass can be seen in many windows, as well as unique brick and stone work. Many interiors boast archways, hardwood flooring, cheerful bathrooms and galley kitchens with quaint breakfast rooms and built-in cabinetry sparkling with beveled mirrors and stained glass. Some fireplace mantels display multiple types of wood and are flanked by built-in bookcases, which were favorite gestures of the builder.
