Luxe Living In Lower Greenville For Half The Price!

Share News:

Ivy Kessie with Rogers Healy and Associates has listed 5717 Penrose Avenue for $595,000.

Want the feel of a luxury home but at an entry-level price? This luxe Lower Greenville gem is just what the doctor ordered, literally. A little birdie told us it’s being sold by a wonderful physician, who loved raising his daughter here. We can see why. The three-bedroom, two-full-and-one-half-bathroom home is zoned for top rated Mockingbird Elementary, previously Stonewall Jackson. Even better? It’s updated for modern luxury living, indoors and out.

Over $70K In Upgrades

According to listing agent Ivy Kessie with Rogers Healy and Associates, “The owners spent over $70,000 on the home since they purchased it four years ago, including brand new HVAC, roof, siding, garage doors, and more.”

Fantastic Lower Greenville Address

And the Lower Grenville location can’t be beat! “It’s literally in the heart of Dallas on Lower Greenville Avenue by Mockingbird Station, and within true waking distance to restaurants and stores. Gloria’s and the Granada are about 100 steps to home,” adds Ivy. “Despite being in the middle of all this, when you are in the home it’s surprisingly quiet and the backyard is even relaxing!”

Exceptional Designer Touches

We love the gorgeous use of wood and stone throughout the home. Especially the stunning fireplace anchoring the great room! It comes flanked by walls of glass leading to a low-maintenance lawn, which flood the home with natural light. Of course, the industrial cable staircase is a showstopper! With see-through treads and a mix of wood and iron, it’s a statement piece that feels like a work of art.

Did you notice the stained and polished concrete floors?

Clean-Lined Kitchen

When it’s time to whip up a meal, the gourmet kitchen is a real treat! “The home was built in 2007, during the era of hand-scraped oak hardwoods and granite, however the new construction here is very modern, with quartz countertops, luxury appliances, metal railing, and concrete flooring throughout the first story,” shares Ivy. “It’s very energy efficient and easy to maintain inside and out. Indoor and outdoor built-in speakers are a plus!”

Perfect For Families, Students, Empty-Nesters

So who is it perfect for? Ivy says, “Literally anyone. Families like the sellers with small, young kids, empty-nesters looking to downsize, newlyweds, SMU students, or post-graduate students, and it makes for a great investment property – values hold true in this part of town.”

Magazine-Quality Finish

With impressive updates, clean lines, and the look and feel of a magazine-quality home, this family-friendly abode is one we are happy to share. Shout it from the rooftops and let all your buyers know, this one is a beauté worth having!

    I know this won’t get seen but I have just a few observations. First, gorgeous house, great location, great job on the renovation. Next, $595k is “entry-level” now? I weep for normal, non-trust-fund having millennials aspiring to homeownership. Lastly, I wish when I was in college my parents would have bought me a house like this. SMU STUDENTS?!?!?! POST-GRADS?!?!?! WHAT?!?! I just don’t know if I can handle this anymore, if you are buying a house like this to send your kid to college you have too much money, I am a life-long libertarian but that is beyond all credulity.

      For that location, yes, that’s a pretty good deal for the Lower Greenville area, especially that construction.
      However, we also showcase plenty of other price points, including the $200-$299K range on Tuesdays and the $300-$399K range on Thursdays.
      Location is still something people pay for, and some are willing to pay a premium.

      You sound like a very grounded person. And yes, I agree with you. But what Bethany says is true… this site makes it a point to cover a variety of price ranges. The in-town markets in particular have gotten more pricey, and people who love the location of a home like this one are willing to pay for that (and in this case, it looks like they’ll also be getting cool design and style).
