There’s finally a name for it: “cute aggression.”
It’s that feeling you get when you see a baby, a kitten or puppy — or in my case, an adorable house — that makes you want to take a little love bite out of it.
That’s exactly the feeling I got when I first saw 5918 Richmond Ave. It’s a completely adorable cottage in East Dallas’ Belmont Addition that is move-in ready.
“The location is everything, being five minutes from downtown and a short walk away from Trader Joe’s, HG Supply, and all that Lower Greenville has to offer,” says Hanna Brown, the seller. She and her husband have loved this home so well, but family beckons them to Lake Highlands, and so they are reluctantly leaving their love nest.
The three-bedroom, two-bathroom home sports 2,086 square feet of supremely usable space, plus a delicious screened porch in front and a delectable backyard. Seriously, I just want to eat it up! It’s an instant classic.
“The backyard is one of our favorite features of the house, with plenty of room for dogs to run or kids to play and an amazing deck for entertaining,” Brown said.
Tracye Levit, an Ebby Halliday Realtor, has this cutie at 5918 Richmond Ave. priced at $475,000.
“The house is updated with custom granite, stainless steel appliances, gas cooking, and remodeled baths, but this cottage home has all of the original charm of the neighborhood,” Levit said. “This is an excellent opportunity for the buyer who wants to be in M Streets area, as the house is priced to sell.”
Want to see if you’ll eat it up in person? Levit is holding an open house Sunday, July 23, from 1 to 3 p.m.
