What if you could have all of the adorable features you find in a traditional 1920s-era Tudor without all of the tiny rooms, claustrophobic water closets, and impossible-to-maintain stained-glass windows? When I tell you that you can have it all and inside one of the best little neighborhoods in McKinney, well I’m sure you’ll just flip your lid.
Marketed by the Rierder & Hogan Group at Ebby Halliday Realtors for just $330,000 is this adorable gingerbread Tudor at 508 N. Tennessee. It’s in the sought-after Lustig neighborhood near downtown McKinney and you’d totally think it (and its twin next door) were straight out of Lakewood Heights, Gastonwood, or Hollywood/Santa Monica and built in the 1920s, but guys, this cutie was built just this year!
So you get all the benefit of new construction and all of the curb appeal of a classic Tudor. It’s totally win-win! And of course, you get excellent schools, too, and this lovely four-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath home is just a short walk from the historic McKinney Square. The kitchen, with its two tone cabinets and sage green subway tile backsplash is just the cutest thing ever. It’s also a great opportunity to make the kitchen totally yours by picking out all your own appliances.
Everything’s new inside, but you don’t have to sacrifice on period details like stained glass, arched doorways, or gorgeous wood floors. What you won’t miss is all the walls you’d have to knock down to open up and renovate a 1920s Tudor, because this home just flows so perfectly thanks to an excellent floorplan and tons of huge windows.
I love that this master bath is a five-piece bath with a great layout — it flows from the spacious master to a smaller sitting area, and then opens up to this oversized bathroom with fully-enclosed shower. You get to pick out your own mirrors, too!
And speaking of huge, I’ve never seen a 1920s Tudor that was more than 2,000 square feet, but this gorgeous house is 2,450 square feet with a lovely backyard.
So what do you think? Is this cutie just as good as the real thing, or better?
