This charming renovation project at 3615 S. Versailles Ave. is on the market for only $499,000, a fact that astonishes considering the company it keeps in the neighborhood.
Those who are familiar with Dallas might associate the area between lively Lemmon Avenue and the Tollway with West Highland Park, however, La Foy Place is there too, offering the everyday homebuyer attractive options at a more approachable price point.
"This is a smaller, more tight-knit neighborhood with cute houses that have a homey feel to them," says listing agent Julie Pillans. "But it certainly is nice to be right next to West Highland Park for walking and biking purposes."
This 1,818-square-foot property is coming off an extensive interior and exterior remodel that includes the addition of 800 square feet for a new master bedroom, huge walk-in closet, laundry room, and bathroom. The master bath features Italian porcelain, a huge walk-in shower, and a luxurious bathtub.
The kitchen, which offers easy access to the living room, features marble, a new gas cooktop, and unique chevron subway tiles. Not quite as sexy but equally as important are the home's new HVAC system, windows, paint, tankless water heater, and plumbing. There is also a new electric panel and even a gas line for the fireplace. Exterior updates include a new roof, 8-foot cedar fence, automatic gate, and porch light.
Collins says the person who purchases this home will no doubt enjoy walking to Mario's Mexican & Salvadorian Restaurant for a good margarita, and also hitting up Ivy Tavern for happy hour. Whole Foods is just under a mile away.
With all things considered — size, location, quality of renovation, and neighborhood comps — it's shocking that this property hasn't sold yet.
