When you drive up to the quaint cottage at 4818 Purdue Ave., the strong sense of Americana is hard to deny. Whether it's the beautiful landscaping, the patriotic flag, or the plush pecan trees that flank the property, it's easy to imagine this place as home.
The house is rather small at 1,125 square feet, with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, however the current owners showcase the possibilities with the power of furniture placement, great lighting, and valuable updates.
For starters, the whole house has new windows, doors, and a crisp paint job. Plantation shutters, new light fixtures, and Carrara marble in the kitchen also help bring this 1946 construction up to date. Other updates, like a new water heater, roof, and outdoor storage, might not be as noticeably new to a house hunter but are equally as important.
The living room, sitting room, and dining room are the prime places to entertain guests. And although the property seems completely updated, charming touches like built-in shelves and the original hardwood floors hint at the home's history.
A large backyard is enclosed by a new eight-foot cedar privacy fence with an automatic gate. The property boasts seven pecan trees, and the landscaping has been impeccably designed to create a relaxing retreat just moments from all of Dallas' hotspots.
"The Briarwood neighborhood is in high demand because of its close proximity to the shops and restaurants at and around Inwood Village," listing agent Lindsay Hagan says. "It is also close to downtown, the Galleria, and Dallas Love Field."
The price for such a convenient location is $499,000. And in a neighborhood that now includes many new constructions and with Bluffview mansions just moments away, this price is sure to appear perfect to the right buyer.
