“How cute is this!” I said out loud the minute I came across this new listing in the Swiss Avenue Historic District. Not only is it a charming 1925 Dutch Colonial, its interiors are everything I hoped they would be. Gorgeous hardwood floors? Check. Storybook arched doorways? Check. Quaint kitchen with original shiplap? Check. If you’ve been dreaming of a Dallas Dutch Colonial this is it, and it’s perfectly priced at $449,500!
In our Friday Four Hundred, it’s all about the details, and this one’s got curb appeal for days! Ideally nestled at 6200 Bryan Parkway, the two-bedroom, one-full-and-one-half-bathroom charmer is described as having “vintage touches throughout” offering “French doors onto the front porch and rear deck” plus a “sunroom off the kitchen with a complete view of the backyard.”
Now, are you one of those shoppers who reads the property description first or dives right into the pictures? I often wonder so please tell me in the comments. But either way, this exquisite Dutch Colonial is sure to catch your eye.
Offering a cozy yet cheerful 1,768-square-foot floor plan, it leads you from one picture-perfect room to the next, leaving little to be desired. It has it all!
We love the scalloped wood details in the kitchen, and the open shelves with the vintage cabinets, plus the inviting sunroom marked by a wall of windows and natural light, and of course, the French doors that take us outside to an expansive deck surrounded mature gardens.
If the sunny yellow wall color isn’t your thing, a fresh coat of paint would do some good. The tall ceilings, period details, and effortless layout are well worth it to those who love historic houses. There’s something about the coziness, that slight creakiness in a wood floor, that just feels like home. Am I right?
Curl up to the classic brick fireplace with a good book, or head to the master suite with separate sitting area and spacious full bath, featuring spa-blue tiles and an elongated vanity.
A walk-in closet is a tall order for such a historic home, but they’ve managed to fit one in, perfectly.
Whether you’re looking for a starter home or eager to get your hands on something special this Dallas Dutch Colonial does the trick.
