In one of Dallas’ oldest neighborhoods, Vickery Place neighborhood in east Dallas, you’ll find Prairie, Craftsman, and Tudor bungalows that have stood the test of time. Some homes date back to 1911 when the neighborhood was established and others are newer homes thoughtfully built in keeping with the conservation district’s heritage.
Peek behind the trees for the High Caliber Home of the Week sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans, a large 2006-built Craftsman Prairie-style home listed by Matthew Edwards of Dave Perry-Miller Preston Center.
This two-story Craftsman Prairie home is situated on a 60 x 160 oversized lot, nearly a quarter-acre in Vickery Place near the M Streets. But lots of lot doesn’t mean this home is isolated on its own. Like homes of the period it honors, this home has a large, beautifully landscaped front porch with outdoor ceiling fan, swing and second-floor balconies for sitting and enjoying the neighborhood like the old days. You know, back when people knew their neighbors.
The hardwoods throughout just make the house for me and make me forget the home was built just four years ago. It has four bedrooms, four baths, and 4,018 square feet.
The kitchen features white cabinets, Carrera marble countertops, and stainless steel appliances. The kitchen and breakfast room open up to the living room with fireplace and views of both the outdoor yards.
The master bedroom with fireplace is truly a suite with a beautiful master bath featuring a clawfoot tub, standalone shower, and an abundantly large walk-in closet.
