Funky Cedar Crest Family Home To Fall In Love With

cedar crestSometimes you flip through listings and a house just … stands out — like this funky Cedar Crest home with a fun facade and a well-updated interior with a price point that will make some family very, very happy.

Unfamiliar with Cedar Crest? We’ve written about listings in the charming neighborhood before, but for the uninitiated, Cedar Crest is a well-established neighborhood in Dallas that is, we think, a hidden gem. Close to downtown (in fact, you can see the skyline from many points in the neighborhood), the community also boasts a very busy neighborhood association, and is home to the Cedar Crest Golf Course, which hosted the first PGA Tour in 1927.

You can even see a great tour of the golf course here.

“For decades the Cedar Crest neighbors have demonstrated pride in home ownership, which is discernible by many of the uniquely designed custom built homes,” the association’s website said. “The community is well noted for community and political involvement and has produced many business owners, educators and dignitaries.”

The neighborhood’s boundaries are Somerset, Edgemont, Bonnie View Road, Surrey Avenue, Hutchins Road, Sterling, Danube, Southerland, and the Cedar Crest Golf Course.

And this house at 1351 Strickland St. is a great example of that pride of ownership the neighborhood association speaks of. Open and modern on the inside, it’s a perfect floorplan for a growing family — from the perfect for a grown-up space alcove with big windows just off the entry to the open main living area (complete with wood-burning fireplace) that is open to the dining area and kitchen.

The kitchen has granite counters, wood cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and a breakfast bar — all perfect for throwing together lunches while overseeing spelling words.

Throughout the home, wood floors shine in the common areas, with easy-to-care-for tile in the kitchen and warm carpet in the bedrooms.

A generous master has a dual-vanity en-suite, and guests can enjoy their own downstairs retreat with an en-suite as well.

A beautiful wood staircase with linear iron railing takes you upstairs to a third bedroom (also with its own en-suite).

Outside, a deck with linear railing overlooks a large backyard with plenty of trees.

The three-bedroom, three bath, 1,929 square foot home is listed for $225,000 by Denton Aguam with Keller Williams Realty Plano.
