Landing the perfect Knox-Henderson home at an affordable price is like finding a needle in a haystack, right? Wrong! We found one of the last remaining single-family homes in the area, and received a call from Dave Perry-Miller himself to chat about this once-in-a-lifetime listing.
“I think what makes the property exceptional or unique are the following: It is one of the only single-family houses left in all of Knox-Henderson in the entire city,” says Perry-Miller. “Secondly, it has a detached garage, a wonderful screened-in porch, and a terraced courtyard in the back, so it’s got a certain amount of privacy. And my gosh, I lived there for the last year and a half to two years after I sold my big house in Bluffview and I loved it!”
Curb Appeal For Days
The two-bedroom, one-bathroom home is currently listed by Courtney Jubinsky of Dave Perry-Miller Preston Center for $695,000, and it’s giving us major Rosehill Cottage vibes!
Premier Knox-Henderson Location
“I could have my dog there! I was right in the city but I had my dog there,” adds Perry-Miller. “The Episcopal church is right across the street practically, and I could walk out my door and go to some of my favorite restaurants in Dallas – Ziziki, Café Madrid, Bliboquet, Toulouse. It has wonderful places to go for coffee and breakfast and dinner that you can walk to for a glass of wine. It’s like being in New York City, and yet you get an actual house instead of a 200-square-foot apartment for that price.”
And when Perry-Miller says you can walk to the best restaurants in Dallas, he’s not exaggerating! The home is mere steps from Knox-McKinney Avenue shops and restaurants, with close proximity to the ever-popular Katy Trail.
Architecture That Is Cozy, Yet Lives Large
Even more impressive? The 1920s architecture and inviting French door entry flooding the home with natural light. The 1,183-square-foot charmer sits on a sizable 4,008-square-foot lot, and comes lushly landscaped and private, with interiors that are too cute for words!
Open, Airy Living Spaces
We love the gas-log fireplace in the living space, the light and airy bedrooms, and the quaint kitchen leading to a screened porch for sipping cocktails and shooting the breeze.
Terraced Courtyard For Entertaining
The backyard comes dotted with a canopy of mature trees, and makes for an enchanting space to dine, catch up on a good book, or entertain.
Thoughtful Updates, Timeless Appeal
Recent updates include fresh paint, carpet, light fixtures, and a bathroom reconfiguration with updated flooring and window shades. Outdoors, you’ll find new hardscape and plant materials, a refreshed front porch with brick steps, a gravel sitting area in the back yard, an irrigation system, and more.
