Sherri Courie of Ebby Halliday Realtors just listed a gem of a property in Far North Dallas that traditionalists will love! If the gorgeous brick facade and manicured lawn haven’t piqued your interest, perhaps the price will. Currently offered at $510,000 this three-bedroom, two-and-one-half-bathroom home serves up a healthy dose of character, in a prime location, boasting 2,827 square feet of exquisite designer details.
Agent Sherri Courie says: “This home is perfect for empty nesters who want to downsize and still have that luxury living. The builder was very detailed with all his custom work — eight-foot solid doors and windows everywhere! The floor plan is superior to most other homes in this neighborhood. You are in the middle of the city and do not even know it with all the trees and hills.”
We love the home’s classic touches like the wooden staircase, crown mouldings, wall paneling, and windows streaming lots of natural light. The open floor plan was built for entertaining and includes a fabulous wet bar centered around all the rooms. Don’t you just adore the double chandeliers and moody black accent color? This is where glamour and sophistication reign supreme, and is a perfect complement to the gorgeous fireplace in the formal living.
“Our house is solid as a rock and we felt it the minute we walked in,” say the current owners. “We stopped five feet into the house and knew it was the one. It has great bones and is the most comfortable house we have ever owned. The décor reflects our New Orleans culture growing up. As HOA President, I have a real passion for Chalfont. Every house has its own character and that is what we love about it — there are no two houses alike. That is a credit to the builder and developers at that time. Unfortunately, we have to move to N.Y. due to a job transition. We will miss Chalfont and all of our neighbors. This house is very special to us.”
In the chef’s kitchen you’ll enjoy a gas range, double ovens, ample granite counters, and a large walk-in pantry. Clearly a designer has been let loose on this darling house because it takes guts to paint a dark ceiling like that — turns out, it’s a risk worth taking! See how it balances out the tones of the granite and emphasizes the custom cabinetry? Well done, Chalfont Circle, well done. While there’s always a place for the sleek, the bright, and the modern, this home reminds us how a little warmth and tradition can go a long way.
Another great feature? The gracious living areas, formal dining, and kitchen all center on lovely views of the patio, gardens, water fountain, and synthetic lawn. Beauty, style, and low-maintenance living?! This Friday Five Hundred is speaking our language.
The home comes complete with a luxurious main-floor master, so no need to worry about those stairs. Privately tucked away on the main level, it has a stately fireplace, plenty of windows, and a spa bath that will have you ready to move right in!
Draped in designer details, you’ll enjoy a mosaic tiled soaking tub, giant glass shower, double sink vanity, and walk-in custom closets. Two large bedrooms are located on the upper level with a great Jack-and-Jill bath and walk-in closets.
Outside, you’ll enjoy an intimate courtyard, private and secluded with brick walls and greenery accessed by a number of French doors for effortless indoor/outdoor entertaining.
The low-maintenance lawn means less time fiddling with the yard, and more time for doing the things you love. Of course, if you have a green thumb there are flowerbeds to prune. Lovingly maintained and ideally positioned on a quiet tree-lined street, this home has timeless sophistication written all over it. See for yourself at the Open House this Sunday, March 18, from 1 – 3 p.m. and tell Sherri we said hi!
