The big mistake that a lot of sellers make when updating a property for the market is taking it all too far. Sure, I love a good open floor plan, but can we admit that not all homes should have them?
A fantastic example of updating without sacrificing a home’s character is this adorable updated ranch in Melshire Estates. These homes have such great bones, fantastic lots, and family-friendly floor plans that it’s sad to see them remodeled into oblivion. Our Inwood National Bank home of the week, however, has benefited from updates that put a fresh face on this Melshire Estates ranch without gutting it of all character.
Following the ideal of “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” this listing from Mohammed Jaber and Michelle Hopson of Compass Dallas feels dreamy and bright without being sterile.
From the entrance, 5805 Lindenshire Lane feels different. The blonde floors, soft dove gray walls, and that absolutely classy chevron pattern in the foyer are so classic. The home has everything you’d expect from these wonderful 1950s ranches, including formal living and dining rooms at the front, a separate family room, a great kitchen, and plenty of room for family life. This Melshire Estates ranch has four bedrooms, three full bathrooms, and almost 2,500 square feet. The mature trees add plenty of shade to the large, grassy lot, too.
Notice all of the built-in cabinetry, which gives you plenty of room to stash your stuff to keep things organized and clutter-free. We love the big bay window that gives us views of the back patio and private backyard. The kitchen is bright and opens to the breakfast nook. We love the terracotta tile, which adds a bit of warmth to the all-white kitchen, which comes complete with new stainless steel appliances.
“The split bedroom floor plan and large baths offer versatility and function,” Jaber noted.
“The recently refinished hardwood floors are in great shape!” he added. “The front yard includes magnificent live oak trees and the pool-size backyard has beautiful pecan trees! This home is a great value for Melshire Estates and lends itself to adding your personal touches.”
Mohammed Jaber and Michelle Hopson of Compass Dallas have listed 5805 Lindenshire Lane for $650,000.
