The East Dallas Craftsman bungalow at 6110 Bryan Pkwy., is an absolute beauty, with looks and location. It was built in 1921 and has been carefully and lovingly updated to offer modern luxuries that make it totally appealing.
This home has three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and 2,119 square feet, quite large for the home’s era. It has been featured in the Swiss Avenue Mother’s Day Home Tour, and sits on a street full of other architecturally significant homes.
It was listed yesterday by Brent Germany with Keller Williams Realty Plano for $525,000.
First, let’s talk about curb appeal: this house has it in abundance. The Craftsman architectural lines, wide front porch, manicured landscaping, and shade trees all work together to create a dynamite first impression. This seems like the kind of house where you’d want to drink lemonade on the front porch and talk to neighbors, and Germany says that’s exactly the kind of area this is.
“When we first moved in, we got flowers and we know all our neighbors and are friends,” he said. “It’s the kind of area when you are driving into it, you feel like, ‘Ahhh, I’m home.'”
Inside, a maintained sense of its era creates a house brimming with charm. The front living room’s tall Craftsman-style windows and original Rookwood tile fireplace create a sense of atmosphere that is found throughout this property: warm, inviting, and cozy. Fresh paint and gleaming hardwoods add to the effect.
The kitchen was taken to the studs recently for a remodel. It includes all new electrical, plumbing, hardwood floors, Carrera Marble countertops, handmade cabinets, Bertazonni oven, microwave drawer, farm sink, and recessed and cabinet lighting. The entryway to the kitchen was opened up to make the galley kitchen seem much bigger, also. The nearby dining room has a fabulous farmhouse orb chandelier, creating a stylish space for dinner parties.
The master suite is another impressive space in this East Dallas bungalow: it’s actually two rooms, one of which the current owners are using as a nursery (that room has new built-in shelving). From its dramatic architectural lines and fireplaces to the new carpeting and natural light, this master retreat is memorable (this whole area was added onto the house in the 1980s). A third fireplace is in the master bathroom.
The back is smallish, meaning low maintenance, and it has a good-sized wood deck, storage shed, two-car detached garage, and privacy fence.
This marvelous property is actually owned by the agent selling it, and he has lots of interesting stories about the renovations, which were done in the past few years. If you’re interested in this Craftsman East Dallas bungalow, better act fast. It’s sure to see a buyer soon.
