For people who want to live in the heart of Dallas, it can be hard to find an eye-catching, updated home that’s affordable without sacrificing location. But this week’s Friday Four Hundred is all that and more, and sits right off Greenville Avenue. One look at the photos, and you’ll see why this Craftsman cutie is causing a stir.
Impressive Location, Updates, & Charm
The two-bedroom, two-full-bathroom gem is all about location, location, location – and updates, and character, the list goes on. Just ask agent Lewis McKnight of McKnight & Associates Realtors who says, “Many homes in the area will have one or two of those things, but to have all three makes this home special.”
In The Most Walkable Pocket Of Dallas
“The home is in one of those walkable pockets of Dallas,” says McKnight. “And, this craftsman home also provides character. It was built in the 20s, but doesn’t have all the issues that you’ll typically find in an older home. It has been completely updated but with the character of an older home, so buyers get the best of both worlds.” Sound too good to be true? We thought so too. Which is why we did some digging.
Turns out, the home lives up to the hype, and the current sellers rave about its lifestyle. “It’s in an awesome location right off Greenville and within walking distance to Terilli’s, Blue Goose, and The Grape,” say the sellers. “You don’t even need a scooter to get to the wildly popular Lower Greenville and M Streets neighborhood faves! As if that wasn’t enough, it is a very short scooter ride to Henderson Avenue, as well as the upper Greenville area with The Granada and Snuffer’s. Plus, we are in a prime location to throw an amazing St. Patty’s Day party since we are near the entrance of the block party. We have done that for the past five years in a row. How can you beat that?”
With Upgrades Galore
And nothing beats what awaits you inside! This Craftsman bungalow is simply too cute for words! The entire house has been lovingly maintained and it shows. With a light and bright interior spanning 1,604 square feet, you’ll have plenty of space to entertain at the holidays, and the thoughtful layout is a welcome surprise for a home of this period.
A gracious formal entry offers lots of versatility with French doors that open to a large living and dining area. Here you’ll find gorgeous hardwood floors and crown moldings, plus a nearby sunroom with ample windows streaming tons of natural light. It makes for the perfect study or home office!
And A Classic Gourmet Kitchen
Next up, the white custom kitchen. We adore the details here, including the cut-out that overlooks the dining space. With ample cabinets, stainless steel appliances, sleek granite countertops, and a classic subway tile backsplash, it couldn’t be more charming. There’s even a wall of picture windows and easy access outside.
Generous Beds & Baths
After a long day, the spacious bedrooms allow you to unwind in style. This includes an updated master and en-suite bath, complete with jetted tub and separate shower.
The second bedroom is equally comfortable, and affords an updated full bath as well.
Larger Than Normal Lot
This cutie Craftsman sits on larger than normal lot totaling 7,492 square feet. And that lush backyard? It’s much bigger than it looks. The owners built that big beautiful deck in the fall of 2015, which is made out of Trex composite decking material. Translation – this deck won’t rot out in five to seven years as compared to most decks built out of untreated lumber. It was built to last, much like the home itself, meaning you’ll enjoy memorable backyard parties and family gatherings for years to come. And the sellers say you can’t ask for better neighbors.
Perfect For Young Couples, Families, Empty Nesters Alike
“This home is perfect for young couples, especially those looking to start a family or a single young executive who wants to be in a walkable area,” they say. “Or, if you’re an empty nester and want to downsize, this home is for you. Even though it is within walking distance to countless restaurants and bars, this block of Llano is a relatively quiet street with super friendly neighbors who are eager to welcome you to the block.”
In fact, it’s such a desirable neighborhood, there are only two other bungalows left on this block, so you’ll have to act fast. “Everything is new and bigger, which typically means a much larger price tag,” says McKnight. “But with this home, you get walkability and charm for a price that can’t be beaten in this neighborhood.”
Lewis McKnight with McKnight And Associates has listed 5732 Llano Ave. for $474,000. For more information or to schedule a tour, give Lewis a call and tell him Candy sent you!
