Is there anything more charming than a home straight out of time but with all the modern luxuries we love? This gorgeous four-bedroom, three-full-bathroom Craftsman is located in the coveted Junius Heights historic district, with prime placement near the heart of Dallas.
For those of you who need a refresher on Junius Heights, the neighborhood was developed by C. H. Munger and is described as “the greatest lot sale in the history of Dallas” with 200 lots reportedly sold between 12:01 a.m. and 12:45 a.m. on September 3, 1906.
According to the Junius Heights Historic District, “Advertisements of the day promised that Junius Heights would become the choicest residential section of Dallas. The neighborhood was well known by its large columns on Abrams and was served by the Junius Heights streetcar line until streetcar service was discontinued.”
Today it is home to the largest collection of Arts and Crafts/Craftsman homes in the southwest, and our Friday Five Hundred is one of its gems! Maintaining all its glorious 1915 architecture, but with top-to-bottom upgraded interiors, 725 Lowell Street is a rare find and could be yours for just $549,000. Let’s take a closer look shall we?
Nothing makes a statement like a bold color choice, and what better way to make a first impression? This Craftsman at 725 Lowell Street packs a big punch! The impactful royal blue exterior, elegant white-washed shutters, wrap-around porch, and vibrant greenery all complement each other to showcase the Early American architecture beautifully. Positioned on a highly sought-after 8,146-square-foot lot, it’s no wonder this Junius Heights beauty landed a spot on our Friday Five Hundred.
“Munger Place is one of my favorite neighborhoods in the Lakewood area. All of these homes come with so much charm, and this 103-year-old home does that exactly,” says listing agent Brent Germany with Keller Williams Realty Plano. “It’s nestled right off Lowell and Gaston and within walking distance of the Garden Cafe and the elementary school.”
Here you’ll enjoy 3,347 square feet of fully remodeled interiors with rich hardwood floors, a bright open floor plan, and updated kitchen with designer touches. Stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and subway tile adorn the kitchen, which overlooks a gracious living area. It’s an optimum space to host brunches and dinner parties!
Also on the main floor, you’ll find a renovated master suite with walk-in closet, and oversized bath with separate spa-shower. An additional bedroom and full bathroom accompany the master on this floor.
Upstairs there are two bedrooms, a spacious game room, and a perfect office or study nook. With ample space to entertain, you’ll be able to host friends and family with ease.
Traveling outside, we think you’ll get plenty of use out of the expansive wrap-around porch, fenced-in lawn, and quaint pergola – perfect for backyard barbecues or an evening of star-gazing. We love that this rare find in Junius Heights manages to capture a modern floor plan with all the historic beauty of Munger Place.
Minutes from shops, restaurants, and entertainment in the heart of Dallas, 725 Lowell Street is a historic charmer you don’t want to miss!
