Thursday Three Hundred: Already Under Option, This Beautiful Munger Heights Cottage Has Tons of Style And Charm


Britt Lopez was quick to point out that you shouldn’t get turned off by this home’s address. This house is on the sleepy side of Skillman Street, near Lipscomb Elementary. It’s not the busy side, which is north of Live Oak Street, instead it’s inside Munger Place, a fantastic district with an abundance of different architectural styles.

And this home is beautiful both inside and out, thanks to the sellers’ hard work. Truly, 707 Skillman is an example of sellers who have done everything right, using great design and materials, but still needed the networking and sales power of a well-connected Realtor. In fact, Britt sent this listing to us last week, and we had already planned on featuring a different Thursday Three Hundred, but as things happen in this amazingly hot market, and as it goes with homes that have finish-out that will make any homebuyer salivate, this incredible property is already under option contract.


“We got it under contract and people are clamoring for the next project by this seller,” Lopez said. “It went under contract in 8 days.  This was a FSBO listing that tried for more than a month to sell it on her own.  Needless to say listing with a Realtor made the difference in her exposure to the market and got multiple offers on the place.”

Listed for $365,000, this three-bedroom, two-bath traditional is a lovely home for a family. This area feeds into Woodrow Wilson High School, a fantastic DISD campus that is breaking records and setting the bar for urban high schools. The home has 1,958 square feet inside, a tidy backyard, and a detached garage.



There are some fabulous details throughout this home, too. “The renovations are both beautiful and functional,” Lopez said. “Everything has been done including foundation, roof, HVAC, plumbing, and electrical. Plus all the fun stuff, like the completely updated kitchen with ceiling-height white cabinets, gorgeous granite counters, stainless appliances, and an eat-in breakfast area with huge built-in hutch.”

You’ll love the baths, which have gorgeous finishes and a cool vintage look with mosaic black-and-white floor tile and furniture-style vanities. In the master, the bath is separated from the bedroom by cool sliding barn-style doors. It’s a fantastic look that saves space and adds some modern flair. And there are gorgeous hardwood floors throughout the home, stained a delectable espresso. Yum!




So yes, we can see why someone is already so stoked to buy this beautiful home! What about you?
