Using most standards from around the world, Dallas homes aren’t very old at all. Sure, you’ll find the occasional 1920’s property, but rarely anything older. Not so with today’s Thursday Three Hundred, a slice of Dallas history as the site of the original Piggly Wiggly store, built in 1916. It is also rumored to have been a speakeasy during the Prohibition era.
Located at 315 N. Collett Ave. this is a rare townhome in Munger Place, both architecturally and historically significant. It offers a distinctly loft-like vibe inside. Think 12-foot ceilings, exposed ductwork and rafters, and exposed brick with custom texture on the walls.
This property is full of stories, and not just its own: the reclaimed maple hardwood floors were recovered from the former gym at the Hockaday School. Pretty cool.
With three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 2,249 square feet on one story, this is a spacious townhome with luxe extras, like three-zone wiring for total house sound, including the front patio and courtyard.
This is such an unusual, storied property, located near N. Munger Boulevard and Columbia Avenue, just minutes from downtown Dallas — let’s take a look.
