If a fabulous East Dallas location is on your future home checklist, make time to see our Thursday Three Hundred, near East Mockingbird Lane and Skillman Street in the Wilshire Summit neighborhood.
The home at 4217 Concho St. sits just 2.6 miles from the west shores of White Rock Lake and 5.4 miles from downtown Dallas. It’s close to pretty much everything awesome in central and East Dallas. Bonus: it’s situated in the Stonewall Jackson Elementary attendance zone, which earns a “10” out of 10 from GreatSchools.org. Great news for families looking for a first home.
This house has two bedrooms, one bathroom, and 1,170 square feet on one story, built in 1941. The property is updated with a new kitchen but retains lots of character and style from that era. It’s got a small footprint, but makes the most of the square footage with a smart floorplan and lots of natural light to make it feel even bigger.
This curb appeal cutie gives a friendly first impression, with manicured landscaping and a cobalt blue front door. The living room’s large wood-burning fireplace anchors the room, which flows easily into the formal dining area through an arched doorway, one of many period architectural details that charm. Another great feature: refinished hardwoods everywhere except the bathroom. No carpet in sight.
The renovated kitchen features crisp white cabinets, a white subway tile backsplash, granite countertops, new knobs and pulls, new light fixtures, and stainless steel appliances, including a built-in microwave and gas range. There’s a small breakfast nook, too, for a quick cup of coffee and a look out the window to the front yard. One of the walls in this nook is done with chalkboard paint, perfect for list-making and impromptu art sessions.
Both bedrooms offer multiple windows and good-sized closets. The master has a door leading out to the screened-in back patio, which overlooks a large, landscaped backyard. Outdoor features include a pavestone patio, mature shade trees, lots of grassy green space, and a wood privacy fence.
