This sweet pea-green house is ready for the Fourth of July!

 
We hear it all the time: Dallas is loaded with cookie-cutter homes, one looking just like the other. Builders, those naughty peeps, scrape down homes with character then build new hogging the entire lot, which few can afford. Where is charm? Where is history? Where is something freakin’ green and ORIGINAL?
 
Grab your checkbook and get pre-approved because I have got a house for you! 
 
Actually, Kate McCoy of the Ebby Halliday Preston Center Office has one. You know, the elegant digs with Ginger Gill at the helm? Though they work right outside the honeypot, those ladies are all over town. This honeypot of a listing is in East Dallas. Almost 100 years old. And I am in love from the pea-green stucco exterior to original hardwood floors in most of the house, nooks, crannies and built-ins plus the kitchen, plumbing, and western windows all updated just last year. Which for this age home is huge. Plus WALKABLE  to Greenville Avenue and Tietze Park.
 
And sit down for this one: a WALK-IN MASTER CLOSET.
 

 

Let me introduce 5939 Richmond Avenue to you, and again, save it, because this honeypie won’t last. Not even in MLS yet. Priced at $530,000, this home is as live-able as it’s brand new neighbors, which are going for upwards of $700.000.

Reading nook on the porch!
