Dallas | $1.499 Million
A 1920 Greek Revival house with four bedrooms, four full and two half bathrooms and a two-bedroom, two-bathroom guesthouse, on a 0.3-acre lot
After a long history as a bed-and-breakfast, this home was renovated with an eye toward preserving many of its original details, including the woodwork, leaded glass and a hand-painted fireplace. It is in a neighborhood known as Old East Dallas, within a few blocks of Baylor University Medical Center. An Aldi supermarket is five minutes away on foot, and Buckner Park, a green space with public tennis courts, is half a mile away. Downtown Dallas is about 10 minutes away by car, depending on traffic.
Size: 4,736 square feet
Price per square foot: $317
Indoors: A long paved path leads from the sidewalk to a grand, columned front porch, with double front doors surrounded by original leaded-glass windows.
The foyer beyond has original floors, inlaid with five kinds of wood. Off this space is a powder room, and to the left is a comfortable study with a fireplace. Across the foyer is a formal living room with a fireplace that has its original mantel and mirror.
Through the living room is a formal dining room with wainscoting and green damask wallpaper. Behind the dining room is an updated kitchen with walls painted a buttery shade of yellow and Carrara marble counters. Appliances include a dedicated wine refrigerator and two dishwashers. An airy family room that could serve as a den or an additional dining area is open to the kitchen.
