Dave Perry-Miller Realtor Scott Kaserman thought the sale on his East Dallas listing at 6051 Penrose Ave. was a done deal when they inked a contract yesterday. But today brought bad news.
“It went into multiple offers and under contract yesterday, only to come back on this morning because the buyer got cold feet,” he said.
So that means this darling Burghers Ballard cottage, located near Mockingbird and Skillman, is back on the market. Kaserman has scheduled an open house for Sunday from 2-4 p.m. and said he hopes to get multiple offers again. Built in 1939, this house has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, 1,506 square feet, and loads of personality. Think delightful curb appeal with mature trees and landscaping, arched interior doorways, hardwood floors, a renovated kitchen and bathrooms, and lots of natural light. The house is within walking distance to Greenville Avenue and White Rock Lake, and is listed for $435,000.
The front living room has a fireplace and built-in bookshelves, and the entire house is freshly panted in a palette of soothing neutrals. The hardwood floors are recently refinished and look marvelous. The buyers have stages the home beautifully to accentuate function and the spacious feel of the interior. The kitchen has been renovated to include stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, freshly painted cabinetry, and a stone backsplash. Lots of counter space and cabinetry in there. Two of the three bedrooms have the hardwoods, and all have good-sized closets and windows (the master has a walk-in closet). From the master, French doors lead to the outdoor deck, perfect for morning coffee. The patio looks over the grassy yard, and to the two-car detached garage.
What do you think? Will this house go back under contract after its open house Sunday?
