Sometimes it just takes a little pop of color - bright blue in this case - to elevate a home from casual interest to “the one.”

Sometimes it just takes a little pop of color — bright blue in this case — to elevate a home from casual interest to “the one.” 

This special Tuesday Three Hundred at 5605 Worth St. in Dallas has just the little eye-catching features you’ll be telling your friends about. 

It has three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and a large covered porch. 

My personal barometer of a great house involves a large porch — front or back will do — where I can envision reading a good novel in the shade with a glass of lemonade. It’s my generation’s version of the white picket fence. 

Will all your dreams come true in this Junius Heights home with the bright blue details? There’s no way to be certain, but it’s a good place to start. 

Let’s see what’s inside. 

This Old House

This 1930s Craftsman home exudes “charm and character,” according to Agent Nyda Faith with Coldwell Banker Realty Dallas. 

“The large covered porch welcomes you into an open living-dining area with soaring ceilings, original hardwoods, and lots of natural light, making for a happy home,” Faith said. 

Although it’s been around awhile, this home has proven it stands the test of time. 

The large kitchen boasts sparkling new granite countertops, backsplash, fresh paint, and a new sink. Pretty much everything is new, including the laminate flooring upstairs. There are two dining areas and floor-to-ceiling cabinets. 

“Views from the kitchen into the large backyard reflect a space large enough for all your friends and family to gather,” Faith said. 

A new roof was installed in 2012, and more than $18,000 of foundation work has been poured into this home. It’s no longer a fixer-upper. It’s fixed. 

Down On The Corner 

The Worth Street home is a bike ride from White Rock Lake and all that the historic Junius Heights neighborhood has to offer. Enjoy hiking and biking the Santa Fe Trail, or head to the nearby Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden.

The area is zoned for Dallas ISD schools, including William Lipscomb Elementary, J.L. Long Middle School, and Woodrow Wilson High School. All three campuses received B ratings from Txschools.gov.  

Nyda Faith with Coldwell Banker Realty is listing 5605 Worth St., Dallas, for $394,900.
