Those looking to land a luxurious Lakewood-area home would be wise to check out the Prairie-style stunner at 6111 Prospect Ave. Its fantastic floorplan combined with a top notch location poses million-dollar potential sans the million-dollar price tag.
This four-bedroom, 3.2-bathroom home boasts 3,236 square feet of living space made for entertaining. The flow from the fancy kitchen to the relaxing living room retreat is ideal for hosting parties, watching football with friends, or simply keeping an eye on the kiddos while the chef of the family prepares dinner.
"This listing is unique in that while it's a newer construction, it has had time to mature, making its curb appeal even more seamless on this sophisticated street," said listing agent Mary Ann Chapel of Briggs Freeman Sotheby's. "It is truly move-in ready and has designer updates, a new roof, HVAC, and water heaters, too."
And while a picture is sometimes worth 1,000 words, there are some features that a snapshot just cannot do justice. For instance, all four bedrooms are upstairs and meet at a spacious media-game room that provides its future family even more space to spread out. There is also a quiet study at the front of the home that is far removed from the main living space. This is a priceless feature for those who do the majority of their work at home and know the value of a solid, silent space to knock out an assignment.
There is a two-car garage with a covered walkway to get you to and from the house without any drama when it rains. The backyard features just enough green space for the kids and pets to play but not enough to be bothersome from a maintenance standpoint. There is also a covered patio with room to entertain.
The real icing on the cake, however, is the property's location in one of East Dallas' coziest corners. This home is mere minutes from downtown, Lakewood shopping, and Greenville Avenue restaurants. And despite its high walk score, it sits on a serene street that somehow seems miles away from the Dallas hustle and bustle.
"It just feels like Lakewood," Chapel said. "It's established and charming yet is rooted in the center of the community in a unique way that many other listings in East Dallas simply aren't."
The owners said that the first time they walked through this property as prospective buyers, they knew it was a place they wanted to call home. They hope to "pass the keys" to a family who feels the same way when they tour it.
This listing is currently priced at $829,500 with an open house scheduled for Sunday, October 7 from 2-4 pm.
