We love a historic home, and the Old East Dallas Craftsman at 4839 Junius St. will make you swoon.

This memorable property has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 2,784 square feet on two stories, built in 1914.
The floorplan is traditional for a home of this style and era, and the owners make the most of every space with unusual design choices. The kitchen features a large center island, a 12-burner Wolf range and double ovens, and granite countertops. Hardwoods flow everywhere except bathrooms, which are updated with fresh paint and features. Love the claw foot tub in a guest bath. Summer evenings will be spent in the tranquil backyard dining under the pergola with gorgeous flagstone patio and built in grill.
