EXQUISITELY REMODELED JUNIUS HEIGHTS CRAFTSMAN
Open house: Saturday, Dec. 31, 12-2 p.m.
One of Dallas’ oldest neighborhoods is Junius Heights, and the home at 725 Lowell St. is an original there. This incredible Craftsman has been gorgeously remodeled—the outside still looks like 1915, but the inside is definitely of today. It has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, two living areas, and 3,488 square feet on two stories.
The Munger Place property features a large wrap-around patio and wonderful curb appeal. Inside, real hardwood floors greet in the front living room, where there are soaring ceilings. The kitchen is a dream, with light-colored granite counters, a large center island, tons of cabinet space, and new stainless steel appliances. The home has two dining areas, and the second living area is on the second story. There are also four HVAC zones, a real luxury.
NEW CONTEMPORARY CONSTRUCTION IN SOUGHT-AFTER EAST KESSLER AREA
Open house: Saturday, Dec. 31, 12-3 p.m.
North Oak Cliff’s East Kessler is one of the most sought after neighborhoods in Dallas. The newly constructed contemporary home at 1547 Eastus Dr. is sure to be popular, with two master suites, tons of upgrades, gray bamboo flooring, and a floorplan made for entertaining. This house has three bedrooms, three full bathrooms, one half bath, and 3,082 square feet on one story, built in 2016.
The large open living areas offer lots of natural light through energy efficient windows. Other green features include spray foam insulation and tankless water heaters.

ROSEMONT PLACE STUNNER CRAFTSMAN WITH AUTHENTIC ERA TOUCHES
Open house: Saturday, Dec. 31, 2-4 p.m.
We love a great Craftsman, and the remodeled one at 611 N. Montclair Ave. is simply stunning. Built in 1923, it has been reimagined with the original feel preserved and modern touches added. This house has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,940 square feet on one story.
In the front living room, an original fireplace takes center stage, flanked by original built-in cabinets. The hardwoods are original to the house, restored to a gleaming shine. The kitchen features quartz counters, custom cabinetry, a cool exposed wood ceiling (which extends into the formal dining room, too), and new Kitchen Aid stainless steel appliances. Bathrooms are another wonderful touch, with new penny tile, gorgeous vanities, and a clawfoot bathtub in one. In back, there’s a good-sized backyard and fire pit.
