It’s true, love is certainly in the air this February! Call us corny, but our hearts truly did skip a beat the moment we first laid eyes on 5242 Monticello Avenue, a charming M Streets Tudor in coveted Greenland Hills.
Just in time to fall in love this Valentine’s Day, this three-bed, two-and-a-half-bath home hit the market just a few days ago and it is nothing short of swoon worthy.
Originally built in 1930, this updated home has character and period details throughout, such as stained-glass windows, gorgeous hardwood floors, and plantation shutters that allow tons of natural light to flow inside. With more than 2,400 square feet, it’s in the sweet spot on size. It’s priced perfectly, too, at $699,000.
The open kitchen with granite countertops and gas range overlooks sitting area and dining room with french doors overlooking the backyard. The master bedroom suite is on first floor with additional bedrooms, ample storage, and office upstairs, along with a spacious Jack-and-Jill bath. All this and a two-car detached garage with gated drive and great deck for entertaining … talk about a rare catch for the neighborhood!
“In East Dallas, where so many classic homes are being torn down and replaced with modern or suburban homes, Greenland Hills is such a breath of fresh air, and 5242 Monticello is no exception,” said listing agent and one half of the powerhouse Dwell Partners team, Aimee Schreiner. “This picture-perfect home is situated on a tree-lined street and the curb appeal of the Tudor-style home with a circle drive is enough to make you want to move in. Then as you walk inside and start noticing the 1930’s touches that still remain, my personal favorite being the stained glass window detailing, you are undoubtedly swept off your feet!”
It’s a great home for a young family, and we’re just bursting over it! Happy Valentine’s Day!
