These classic homes remind us of the American Dream. In honor of the upcoming Fourth of July weekend, we take you to two Dallas homes with classic lines, welcoming porches, and Old Glory flying proud. Both drum up all the nostalgia of a bygone era and recreate the feel of simpler times. But their price points are over $30,000 apart. It’s a close call in this week’s Splurge vs. Steal. Tell us which you like best!
Splurge: Timeless Tudor In Kessler Highlands Embodies The American Dream
This timeless Tudor has it all! It’s great for those who want a charming family home in a quiet neighborhood and the classic touches abound.
The three-bedroom, two-bathroom gem is warm and inviting with an open feel and gorgeous wood floors throughout. How about a home office with a stunning trellis-inspired bookshelf for working for home? There are also French doors, a gas log fireplace, and a stunning kitchen with center island.
The chef will love the six-burner gas stove and wine fridge to entertain. And the whole family will love the expansive back deck and lush lawn. An oversized renovated master seals the deal with double sinks and huge glass shower.
A security system, electronic gate, and two-car detached garage round out this terrific Tudor offering. Oh and did we mention the fantastic backyard with pergola and stone patio? Yep, this one’s a keeper!
