6606 Williamson Front

If you’ve ever driven past the light at Mockingbird Lane and Williamson Road on your way to White Rock Lake Park, then you know what house we’re featuring for our Friday Four Hundred. I’ve always loved this house, as it sits right on White Rock Creek and is so pretty from the outside. However, I’ve thought that the location is less than enviable.

6606 Williamson Kitchen

Still, that’s not completely turning me off from 6606 Williamson, a remodeled ranch with a modern vibe and tons of huge windows. You can really soak up the view from this home, which has a terraced backyard and a lovely bank of low-e picture windows. This is such a fun renovation job, one that includes art niches, specialized lighting, and an open kitchen that is perfect for those intimate dinner parties where everyone huddles around the chef as if they’ve waltzed into Benihana for a dinner and a show.

6606 Williamson Living

The open floor plan is accented by the gorgeous stained hardwood floors throughout the home. You’ll also adore the way the home flows from the stainless steel front door to the kitchen and living areas. The kitchen, which features top-of-the-line stainless appliances and a chic and trendy concrete countertop, has tons of storage and a cool, industrial vibe.

6606 Williamson View

The living area is the perfect place to catch a glimpse of the abundant wildlife in East Dallas. Hang a few cool bird feeders (Wild Birds Unlimited is just up the street!) and you’ll attract a copious number of colorful attendants, all which seem an arm’s length away when viewed from these gigantic picture windows. The skylights will help give you light enough to read your bird book, too.

6606 Williamson Master 6606 Williamson Master Bath

The home has two bedrooms and two baths, and while I’ve come to a certain level of peace on the fact that some people aren’t in love with bathtubs and leave them out of their master bathrooms entirely, I have a super hard time understanding the absence of a second sink. It almost seems like a feature that should be mandatory. Tell me I’m wrong, people!

6606 Williamson Deck 6606 Williamson Creek Terrace

But if you buy this home, which is listed by Ebby Halliday Realtor Dick Clements for $499,850, you’re not really buying it for the beds and the baths (although I’m sure you’ll be glad they’re there during certain times of the day). You’re buying it for this amazing terraced deck and patio, which is practically RIGHT ON TOP of White Rock Creek. And that’s reason enough for me to put in a bid. What about you?

3820 Frontier Living

Can a home be romantic? Sure, especially when it offers wonderful views, a secluded feel, and rooms that would look fantastic lit only with candles. That’s how I imagine 3820 Frontier Lane, a cozy Bob-O-Link Downs one story that is clearly the home of an artist.

3820 Frontier Studio

Why is it romantic? Well, the living area has access to a bar with a wine refrigerator, for starters. And every bit of this home feels warm and inviting, thanks to the refinished oak floors and golden granite countertops, and art-bedecked walls. A low-profile fireplace with a large hearth adds to the romance of the home — a perfect spot to throw down a few pillows and pop open a bottle of bubbly with your lover.

3820 Frontier bar

There are tons of windows looking out to the lot, which feels exceedingly private thanks to the forested area surrounding the creek. You can hear the water pass from the elevated rear deck, a wonderful spot for a relaxing outdoor massage. In fact, it’s so private that you could do without window dressings for much of the back of the house and let the views come in to inspire you and your love.

3820 Frontier Back

There’s a fantastic deck in the front yard, too, which would be wonderful for hosting a larger group, but it’s much less private. Still, it’s a wonderful added outdoor space, and definitely an added value. Speaking of value, I’m amazed at what you get for your money in this home, which is priced at a recently reduced $365,000.

3820 Frontier Front

With three bedrooms, two and a half baths, and just over 1,800 square feet, this home is perfect for both romantic dinners for two or entertaining a much bigger crowd. Of course, nature lovers will adore the back of the house and it’s proximity to White Rock Lake — just two blocks away.
