We’ve found a completely adorable, carefully renovated East Dallas Tudor for our Thursday Three Hundred and you’re going to be inspired.
Located at 5814 Palm Ln. in North Stonewall Terrace near East Mockingbird Lane and Greenville Avenue, this cottage has all the personality and character of a Tudor built in 1945. But it also has myriad updates making it more functional, safe, and energy efficient. Think all new electrical, new attic furnace, new water heater, new low-E windows, and new plumbing in the kitchen and bathroom.
“The seller is a designer and when she bought the home, it was not in tip top shape but she had a vision,” said listing agent Brittney Warren with Roger Healy and Associates. “She’s put her hands on everything in the home, done it with care, and you can tell.”
This home has two bedrooms, one bathroom, and 1,470 square feet on one story. Bonus: it’s in the Stonewall Jackson Elementary attendance zone, which earns a “10” out of 10 from greatschools.org.
First, let’s start with the curb appeal: cute as a button, with the Austin stone, new landscaping, mature tree, freshly painted porch, and blue front door.
Inside, the interior is as well-planned and put together as the exterior. The living room introduces the original gorgeous hardwoods, which run through many of the common areas and bedrooms. Throughout the house, you’ll find original crystal doorknobs, too. So charmed. Renovations have brought recessed lighting and a neutral gray palette that feels modern and fresh, which plays beautifully off elements like the original fireplace and bay windows.
Off the living room, the formal dining room is a jewel, with original built-ins, big windows, a bright blue wall color, sparkly chandelier, and a sliding white door leading to the kitchen.
Get ready for a dream when you walk into that kitchen. It looks like it jumped off the pages of a home design magazine, with custom white cabinetry, farm sink, elegant quartz countertops, contemporary large tile floor, blue glass subway tile backsplash, chrome fixtures, breakfast bar, and stainless steel appliances, including a gas cooktop.
“They blew out a wall in the back of the house to open up that space and reconfigured the back part of the house to get that open concept they wanted to center the area around the large island,” Warren said. “The cabinetry is really wonderful with soft-close drawers, too.”
The second living area was taken to the studs for a complete reimagination. The same modern tile from the kitchen flows into this area, which is surrounded by walls of windows.
The two bedrooms are lovely with those original hardwoods, lots of windows, and that same light gray palette. There may only be one bathroom, but what a bathroom it is: quartz counters, custom white cabinets, crystal knobs, chrome fixtures, and a stunning shower with a frameless glass panel, modern tile, and body spray. It even has a shampoo nook in the tile. So thoughtful.
In back, there’s also new landscaping, and a wood deck for entertaining. There also a two-car garage, new eight-foot board on board privacy fence, and mature trees.
This home was listed Dec. 9 by Warren for $399,900. There is an open house Sunday, Dec. 18 from 2-4 p.m.
