There are so many great Northeast Dallas neighborhoods, that maybe the L Streets slipped off of your radar recently. However, this High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans is here to refresh your memory on why the L Streets is such a wonderful little enclave.
Full to the brim of charming ranches and remodeled beauties, this neighborhood offers an accessible location, fantastic amenities, and a community of neighbors that truly loves their ‘hood.
“On a scale of one to 10, this home scores a 10 on cuteness and charm,” Neilson said of his L Streets listing on Livenshire. “It is warm, inviting, and a place you would be glad to come home to.”
We love how the home has been updated with plantation shutter and bold paint with crisp mouldings. The hardwood floors are so perfect, too. It’s the perfect balance of original charm and fresh finishes.
“The home is small in size but has a lot of wow factors: banquette seating in the kitchen, large outdoor entertaining space, attached two car garage, and shiplap in bookcases,” Neilson said.
He’s right, too, as this three-bedroom, two-bath ranch totals just 1,410 square feet but affords a formal dining room, breakfast nook, bright kitchen with plenty of prep space, a full master suite, and a great backyard.
“This home is perfect for the buyer of toda, because it still has charm and character of the old home, but it has an updated master bath that is more functional and stylish,” Neilson added. “It is the perfect marriage of old home charm with a stylish take on today’s trends.”
You’ll love the vintage details left untouched, including the yellow vintage Daltile hall bath and the adorable phone niche. The master suite has been updated, as Neilson notes, with some interesting upgrades.
“The master has his-and-hers closets, and has a TV that suspends from the ceiling when you want to watch, and disappears when not in use,” Neilson said.
What’s really lovely is that the outdoor space is just as great as the indoors, with plenty of room for kiddos to roam.
“The outdoor space is both functional and charming, and it is located directly off the kitchen, which makes entertaining, grilling, and eating outdoors easy and convenient,” Neilson pointed out.
It’s worth noting that this 1955-built home is located inside Richardson ISD and within the Lake Highlands Elementary School attendance zone. That’s quite a selling point to families of young kids!
