According to its listing agent, a new-to-the-market ranch in Northwest Dallas has been loved by a craftsman. And one look at 3820 Shorecrest Dr., and you’ll see just what Lynn Beaurline of Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate is talking about.
Built in 1949, this home has been painstakingly remodeled by someone who knows the value of good carpentry. Not only that, but it has views of a fabulous greenbelt from several rooms throughout its more than 1,800 square feet.
If that seems a little tight for you, there’s also a carriage house in the back with a full bath, which could be used as a guest house, office, or simply a personal retreat.
Truthfully, there is a lot going on in this house, from the stonework that starts at the entrance and continues inside, to a range of flooring styles: multihued wood, tile, and a black-and-white checkerboard pattern in the kitchen. Also in the kitchen is custom cabinetry with a couple of different stains, making it appeal to a particular buyer.
More universally appealing, however, are the commercial-grade appliances from brands such as Sub-Zero, Thermadore, and Miele.
The character-filled bathrooms boast more custom details, including penny tile on the floor in the master bath and a cool tub in the second bathroom. The current owner has not been afraid to mix colors and textures.
Another of this home’s best features is the expansive deck, a portion of which is shaded by a pergola that extends from the back of the house. Imagine sitting on this perch with a glass of wine in the evenings, looking out onto your beautifully landscaped backyard.
The price for all this craftsmanship and beauty? $535,000.
