Just east of Lower Greenville in the popular Lakewood Heights neighborhood, there's an adorable two-bedroom traditional that won't be on the market long. Why? In addition to all the regular pluses — hardwood floors, updated kitchen and baths, terrific curb appeal — the current owners are throwing in a few custom perks to sweeten the deal.
Built in 1936, 6411 Lakewood Blvd., listed by Kelly Ongena at Ebby Halliday Realtors, comes with not only a completely updated interior (and exterior, because the roof was replaced in 2014), but also some fun elements that are custom to the home. A giant, wall-mounted flatscreen TV greets you in the front room, which makes envisioning everyone gathering around for movie night even easier.
Soft recessed lights and gently arched doorways make the 1,735-square-foot home feel more open, as the living room flows into the dining room and kitchen. Master (or wannabe master) chefs will appreciate the upgraded stainless steel appliances — check out those double ovens — and granite countertops. An additional prep area comes with a built-in, custom wine fridge, which will remain.
Both bedrooms are spacious, and the two bathrooms boast seriously lovely updates that mix traditional style with contemporary touches. The plumbing and HVAC also have been updated, so no need to worry about breaking those beautiful tiles to get to the pipes behind. There's an additional bonus room that's just right for a home office or nursery.
The owners are also leaving behind the Nest learning thermostat, which can control more than half the home's energy output and save hundreds of dollars in electricity costs a year. The price tag for all these goodies: $599,000, which is right in line with the popular area's other properties.
