They may not be as popular as in the past, but skylights are a tried-and-true way to bring extra light into a home. The home at 8511 Capri Dr. features not one, but two skylights, each designed to bring a little bit of the outdoors in.
The largest is in the spacious living room, and is paired with vaulted ceilings and exposed dark beams. The second can be found in the master bathroom, and is a major bonus for anyone who has trouble getting going in the morning.
The skylights are a holdover from the ranch home's original 1971 construction, but several renovations have taken place since. Gleaming hardwoods run throughout its 1,846 square feet, even into the three bedrooms and updated kitchen. There's vintage-inspired tile in the two full bathrooms and one half-bath, however, along with sleek new vanities and fixtures.
Custom his-and-hers master closets dispel the myth about older homes having little storage space, as do the lovely built-ins. Others perks include the separate utility room and attached, two-car garage — a rarity for the neighborhood.
Situated near White Rock Lake and East Dallas' sizzling dining scene, the home also has speedy access to highways 75 and 635. It's zoned for Richardson schools, however, so families might be especially interested in its prime location.
Jessica Wantz with Ebby Halliday Realtors has the listing, which is priced at $369,500.
