It’s Friday, folks, which means it’s time to see which home made the cut for our Friday Five Hundred! This week we are pleased as punch to bring you this C Streets cottage that is a springtime dream, currently listed for $515,900 by John Angell of Dallas City Center Realtors. The darling 1940s cottage located at 7210 Casa Loma Avenue has tons of drive-up appeal and boasts a landscaped lawn, flagstone porch, and vibrant flowerbeds bursting with color, much like its eye-catching front door.
According to our friends at Southern Living, a light blue door means:
“You’re hopeful and positive, and know the value of a well-loved, well-worn old pair of blue jeans. Friends come to you for both advice and a good laugh.”
As for a deep blue door they say:
“Inside you’ll find ginger jars and old family heirlooms. You’re grounded, peaceful, and dedicated to your (fixed) principles. But it’s not all serious all the time—you make a mean Bloody Mary.”
We think the C Streets cutie is a combination of both, offering tons of character, and cheerful updates to suit a variety of styles. Ginger jars and Bloody Marys optional.
Listing agent John Angell calls it, “A great find in Lakewood Elementary” and points buyers to the home’s gorgeous hardwood floors, two living areas, and updated “kitchen-breakfast combo” with sleek granite countertops and stainless appliances. You’ll find there is quite a bit of flexibility here, especially for a home of this period.
We think the master suite really steals the show! Make it your sanctuary and take full advantage of the open airy space by creating a sitting area near a window, making a vingette out of the built-ins, and adding fun lighting to the vaulted-and-beamed ceiling. Two large closets and an attached balcony overlooking the back lawn make it a welcoming retreat.
We also adore the home’s easy floor plan, plantation shutters, and French doors off the kitchen leading to a giant fenced backyard with a huge deck and storage shed -—and its C Streets location can’t be beat! The neighborhood, which is situated on the southern end of White Rock Lake just south of Lakewood, was developed slowly over time, with the intent of creating a livable area with lots of open spaces. Think: large front yards uncluttered by utility poles. The result is a tight-knit neighborhood that offers a nice cross section of architectural styles on large lots with oversized front yards.
The three-bedroom, two-full-bathroom home is ideal for families with kids and entertaining outdoors. It has a spacious 2,032-square-foot interior and sits on a sizable 7,363 lot. Check out the C Streets charmer this weekend at the Open House, Sunday, April 8, 12-2 p.m. We would love to hear your take on the property in the comments!
