Bradford, McCullough, Highland Park High School… yes, while DISD continues to find an identity, your kiddos can be walking to and from school in the Park Cities. Best of all, you get an updated, liveable, classic home with 1936 charm and structure, but modernized to 2013 form and functionality. This was a circa 1930’s duplex the owner gutted and transformed into a 4300 square foot single family home with four bedrooms, four baths, two dining and four living areas. All is light, bright, and high ceiling’d with some rooms doing double duty. I love the third floor gameroom/playroom/study or exercise room! (Half the work-out is getting there!)
You will truly feel like you are living in the bindings of a Restoration Hardware catalog: marble countertops, rich dark hardwood flooring everywhere, Viking appliances, custom woodwork & a plethora of of built-ins. There is a covered front entry that is comfortable in the evenings right about now, and bold circular driveway in front. The lot is .16 of an acre, but the backyard still sports a large green space, a balcony and another porch. Now this home has no garage, but it has a darling playhouse the current owners use for storing bikes and play gear. There is a post-tension slab for a car port with rear gate entry to the back alley — an awning is available to make it a covered carport. Or keep it as charming back patio/play area. Asking $1,150,000, listed with Nancy Guerriero and Janelle Law at Dallas City Center Realtors, and proof that you don’t have to spend two million to live in the Park Cities..
