With its growing popularity, the neighborhood surrounding Stonewall Jackson Elementary School has positioned itself as the next Lakewood or Hollywood Heights. There are so many adorable homes here that are attracting all manner of young, hip families. And the school is a nationally recognized one, to boot!
Officially dubbed the W.E. Killam (or Killion, depending on where you look) addition, this neighborhood abuts the elementary campus and is just south of Mockingbird Lane. And in that tiny area you’ll find 6055 Anita Street, a tidy little 1949 traditional home with a cheerful front yard.
Inside you’ll appreciate the updates that have opened up the layout of this three-bedroom, two-bath home. With just over 1,800 square feet, this cute house has room for a young, active family, and tons of cozy features (gas fireplace!) that make it great for entertaining small groups. It’s close to mass transit (Mockingbird Station), shopping, and fantastic restaurants on Greenville Avenue. You get the added bonus of being a stone’s throw from the Park Cities, too. It’s listed by Joe Iley of Mission Real Estate Group for $436,900.
Original hardwood and travertine floors really give this home some style, and the kitchen is bright and has a lovely pass-through to the dining area. Recessed lighting, stainless steel appliances, and an eat-in breakfast room overlooking the deck and backyard really help sell this space. I love the traditional cabinetry, which really helps bring the stainless steel appliances and modern decor together.
The master bedroom is large for a home this size at 12 x 15, and the master bath is conversely small. Just a shower stall and a pedestal sink, but in homes from this era you’ll be hard-pressed to find two bathrooms at all. Still, I definitely appreciate the additional bathroom!
The backyard is a wonderful spot, with a fantastic deck and open lawn. You’ll also appreciate the storage offered by the detached two-car garage in the backyard — an excellent value.
