Our Thursday Three Hundred is a delight, a Midcentury home in East Dallas’ North Hill Estates that shows off the power of a great renovation.
Locate near East Lovers Lane and Skillman Street, the ranch-style house at 6108 Town Hill Ln. is a 3-2 with 1,754 square feet, built in 1956. Its floorplan is opened up to create a modern living space, and updates inside and out make it highly desirable. The curb appeal alone could sell this place!
It was listed Feb. 26 by Michael Wong with Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate for $385,000.
This cute, cozy cottage has so many appealing aspects: the painted brick exterior is a clean, fresh look, especially coupled with the landscaping, which will grow fuller in time.
Inside, the owners took a traditional 1950’s interior—small rooms, lots of walls—and opened it up. When you walk in now, you’re in the entryway looking toward the living room/dining room/kitchen area. All one big space. The hardwoods that run throughout the home, except bathrooms, add to that sense of continuity.
The 2008 renovation added energy-efficient low-E windows, updated the electrical and HVAC, and added custom shades for the windows. All important.
The new kitchen has a large island with breakfast bar, granite countertops, contemporary white cabinets, a glass tile backsplash, pendant lights, and stainless steel appliances, including a gas range. Nearby, they added a stylish built-in bookshelf to visually divide the dining area from a second living area. Two of the three bedrooms have spacious walk-in closets, and the master bedroom is oversized for a home of this era, measuring 17-by-12.
Out back, there’s a two-car detached garage with storage, mature trees, and a paver patio with plenty of room for seating and a grill or fire pit.
There’s a good chance this home will fly off the market, with its prime location and list of amenities. Leave us a comment with your thoughts!
