Our Splurge: Amy Hunniford with Rogers Healy and Associates has listed 6058 Kenwood Avenue for $749,900.

Tis the season to gather round the fireplace, so we found two Dallas beauties to make Santa proud. Hang those stockings, and get ready for visions of sugarplums to dance in your heads. This week, we highlight two Dallas offerings — one in Lakewood and one in downtown Dallas — that will have you doing just that, each with cozy fireplaces and ample space to entertain, but with price points that are miles apart.

Which would you choose in our latest Splurge vs. Steal, the Lower Greenville splurge or the McKinnon Street steal? Either way you’ll have a home for the holidays worth celebrating about.

Dreaming of a white Christmas? Why not treat yourself to this snowy-white Tudor in Lower Greenville. With a price tag well under $1 million, and a fabulous location featuring easy access to downtown Dallas, it’s sure to make all your dreams come true.

Recently Renovated

In fact, it was renovated by a local neighborhood builder and affords stunning curb appeal with mature trees and green space.

Upon entry you’ll be greeted by an elegant foyer. Then, red oak floors lead you from the welcoming entrance to a wide open living area with stately fireplace that’s perfect for sipping cocoa and trimming the tree!

Marble Kitchen

Next up, the marble gourmet kitchen is sure to turn heads. It comes appointed with a Bertazzoni appliance package that will knock your socks off! We’re talking six-gas-burner-commercial-range, convenient wine fridge, deep farm sink, expansive island – basically everything you need to start the holiday season with a bang.

Breakfast Area With Outdoor Access

And, we absolutely adore the charming breakfast area overlooking the flagstone patio with fire pit outdoors. It’s accessed by French doors and is ideal for indoor-outdoor entertaining.

Main-Floor Master

When it’s time for rest and relaxation, these bedrooms will definitely do the trick. The main-floor master features plenty of space to unwind, met by a spa-like bath with two pedestal sinks, free-standing soaking tub, and marble shower. A huge walk-in closet is ideal for hiding gifts.

Fenced Lawn With Automatic Gate

Lastly, an automatic gate, two-car-garage, rear sprinkler system, and ample storage, round out this newly refreshed offering.
