Little Forest Hills is a storied and desirable East Dallas neighborhood. This neighborhood features an eclectic blend of architecture and great community spirit, not to mention proximity to White Rock Lake and other area amenities.
The newly listed home at 9002 Daytonia Ave. is our Thursday Three Hundred and this Little Forest Hills cutie is sure to go fast. It has been updated without losing its original cottage charms, and offers three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,760 square feet on one story, built in 1946.
There’s an open house this Sunday, July 30, from 1-4 p.m. Let’s take a sneak peek!
The fun, funky, and fabulous Little Forest Hills is a community of almost 1,000 homes on the east side of the lake, sandwiched between Casa Linda and Forest Hills. It’s just 15 minutes from downtown Dallas and close to the Dallas Arboretum, Casa Linda Shopping Center, and Arboretum Village Shopping Center. It has a reputation as one of the friendliest neighborhoods in Dallas, and the Little Forest Hills Neighborhood Association is active, hosting events year-round.
This house has a definite cottage feel, cozy and cute. It starts with the curb appeal: fresh white paint, a welcoming front porch, and mature trees. Walk across that front porch into the house, and laminate floors that feel like the real deal greet in the living room. The owners have opened up the floorplan to create better flow, and it’s a moves effortlessly from living area to dining and kitchen. A palette of grays makes it feel friendly and on-trend, too.
The kitchen received huge renovations, now offering white Shaker-style cabinets, gray granite countertops, a contemporary glass tile backsplash, recessed lights, and stainless steel appliances, including a gas range.
The master bedroom feels open and big, with a fabulous ensuite bathroom. That space offers a white claw foot bathtub, higher-end finishes and flooring, white cabinets, granite countertops, and a large walk-in closet. The other two bedrooms share the feel, with gray walls and those same laminate floors.
The backyard is sort of a blank slate — plenty of opportunity with grassy green space and a two-car detached garage. There’s a chainlink fence and room to make it your own.
Other new features of the home include new HVAC, wiring, plumbing, and roof.
