Dallas buyers on the hunt for a character-filled home should look at this listing in the city’s largest historic district. Located in Junius Heights, 722 N. Beacon St. dates back to 1913, but it has all of today’s modern conveniences.

Its airplane bungalow style is similar to a Craftsman, and it is hard to find in Dallas, because the style is more prevalent on the West Coast. But if you like homes of this era, then Junius Heights — east of Munger Place, south of Swiss Avenue and southwest of Lakewood — is the neighborhood to buy, as it boasts the most Arts and Crafts/Craftsman homes in the Southwest.

This particular one is listed for $339,000 with Peggye Johnson of Group One Realtors.

The interior has been renovated in the last year to expand the master suite and update the kitchen and second bathroom. But you’ll still find historic features throughout its 2,020 square feet, like decorative leaded windows and an original fireplace in the living room, as well as hardwood floors.

The updated kitchen includes lots of cream cabinetry, granite counters, a terrazzo backsplash and stainless steel appliances. A light color scheme keeps it bright.

The downstairs master suite is another shining star from last year’s reno. The bathroom was gutted to make room for a frameless glass shower and marble counters, as well as a large, walk-in closet. The second full bath was renovated to include a basket-weave floor tile, a wildly popular pattern in the early 20th century.

The dining room opens onto a small, cheery patio and new-ish deck. A limited amount of green space keeps maintenance to a minimum in this yard. In addition to the one-car garage with storage in the back, there are plenty of places for guests to park.
