Every Thursday, we bring you the CandysDirt.com Open Houses of the Week post. These are three fab open houses in Dallas (and the ‘burbs from time to time) you shouldn’t miss.
This week, our houses range in price from $394,900 to $1.2 million. You’ll find the Swiss Avenue beauty pictured above, as well as a M-Streets Tudor and renovated Chapel Downs home. Guaranteed to please!
SWISS AVENUE BEAUTY SITTING ON HALF AN ACRE IN HISTORIC DISTRICT
Open house: Saturday, August 5, 12-2 p.m. and Sunday, August 6, 2-4 p.m.
Sitting on just over half an acre, the beauty at 5614 Swiss Ave. offers gracious living in the heart of the Swiss Avenue Historic District. Built in 1919, this gorgeous 4,086-square-foot property was carefully restored and updated in 2016. It has four upstairs bedrooms, three full bathrooms, one half bath, three living areas, and two dining areas, all on two stories. In back, there is a completely remodeled guest house with a full kitchen and bath above the two-car garage.
The home may feel grand from the outside, but the inside spaces feel intimate and welcoming. The kitchen is a total reno, with granite countertops, large center island, counter-to-ceiling white hexagon tile, white Shaker-style cabinetry, and stainless steel appliances, including a high-end gas range. The bathrooms are also renovated and feel modern without detracting from the home’s era. In back, there’s grassy green space, an electric gate, and patio.
This Swiss Avenue beauty was listed July 20 by Kendal Cook with Rogers Healy and Associates for $1.2 million.
RENOVATED CHAPEL DOWNS HOME WITH VAULTED CEILINGS, BRIGHT INTERIOR
Open house: Sunday, August 6, 2-4 p.m.
The Chapel Downs home at 3331 Timberview Rd. is impressively renovated with an eye toward contemporary design. The floorplan was opened and ceiling raised to create bright and spacious living, dining, and kitchen areas. This home has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 2,276 square feet on one story, built in 1962.
Kitchens and bathrooms sell houses, and special attention was paid to those here. The kitchen offers glossy flat-front cabinets, a farm sink, quartz countertops, modern glass backsplash, and stainless steel appliances. All bathrooms were renovate to look sleek, including the master bath with its frameless glass shower, floating vanities, dual sinks, and glass backsplash. The master bedroom accommodates a king-sized bed with room for a sitting area and also offers three closets, two of which are walk-ins. The backyard is large with a flagstone covered porch, landscaping, and mature trees.
This home was listed June 22 by the Robert Jory Group with Keller Williams Turtle Creek for $394,900.
M-STREETS TUDOR WITH STAINED GLASS AND FAB BACKYARD WITH SWIMMING POOL
Open house: Sunday, August 6, 3:30- 5 p.m.
The M-Streets Tudor at 5223 Merrimac Ave. sits on a quiet street and it’s a marvelous property, from its curb appeal to the stained glass windows in the front living area, which also has a beamed ceiling and an original mantel. This house has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living areas, and 1,982 square feet on one story, built in 1926.
Elegant formals and an inviting den with walls of windows look out to the pool and private backyard, which is an unexpected surprise. The updated kitchen now offers top-of-the-line Viking appliances, new marble countertops, subway tile backsplash, and stainless steel appliances, including a gas range. Many of the bedrooms have built-ins and all have hardwood floors.
This home was listed July 31 with Nancy F. Wilson with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage — Lakewood / NE Dallas for $619,000.
