Perfectly Polished Devonshire Cottage is Irresistibly Charming

By definition, “charming” means “extremely pleasing or delightful,” and that fits our High Caliber Home of the Week sponsored by Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans to a tee.

In fact, Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate’s Phillip Murrell, the listing agent for 5722 W. Hanover, couldn’t agree more.

“Once inside, you will be impressed by the restraint and taste applied when this 1948 home was re-envisioned,” says Murrell, who has listed this four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath home for $1.079 million. “These enhancements include hand-scraped hardwoods, custom drapes and shades, wood framed windows, neutral gray-tone walls and crisp, white crown molding.”

Murrell notes that the first floor of the home has a traditional floor plan with a front sitting area and a dining room — large enough to seat 14 guests, he says — which then gives way to the family and kitchen areas, which are open and easily accessible.

“Kitchen upgrades include built-in and paneled Sub-Zero refrigerator, paneled dishwasher, stainless steel gas stove, and timeless honed, marble countertops,” Murrell says. “The adjacent family room is made cozy with gas fireplace and two large windows look onto backyard patio.”

The master suite is on the first floor, which sports a reading nook and access to the outdoors. We love that the other three bedrooms are upstairs — perfect for parents who want some privacy.

The master bath has a jetted tub and full-sized, frameless glass shower in addition to a spacious double vanity with separate sinks and makeup station. There’s so much storage here!

Besides the three additional bedrooms and two baths upstairs, Murrell says there’s also a second living room. It’s a great spot for kids to play.


Of course, we love the backyard, which really fits with the aesthetic of the home in a charming, tidy way. The back porch, which is smothered in tasteful slate, opens to a larger patio and built-in grill and bar. This is the place to be this summer!

The home also has a two-car garage and a fantastic location. Devonshire, a perennially popular neighborhood, is so close to the Dallas North Tollway, Inwood Village, and the Park Cities. What a truly High Caliber Home! Though this property was just listed by Murrell, don’t take your chances!
