Dallas Tudor offers small-neighborhood feel close to big-city bustle
A hot new listing blends the best of the old and the new just a short distance from Uptown. Located on a spacious corner lot in Perry Heights, a cozy neighborhood of single-family homes in the Oak Lawn area, the Tudor at 4438 Vandelia St. retains its 1920s charms while providing the modern amenities today’s buyers demand.
Listed for $549,900, the house has great curb appeal, with tidy and colorful landscaping accented by cobalt blue planters. Even more beckoning is the large front porch, where neighbors can relax and catch up over a glass of wine.
Inside, original hardwood floors run throughout, and large windows bring in tons of natural light. A brick fireplace anchors the joyous living room, where you can almost imagine a young family hanging up their stockings come Christmastime.
The 1,720-square-foot home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, including the master bath with a double Onyx vanity and oversized soaker tub. The public spaces flow seamlessly — from the living room to the dining room to the breakfast nook to the kitchen, where there are slick granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. From the kitchen, French doors lead out to the backyard.
Speaking of the backyard, a deck extends into the lush landscape, offering enough space to set up a nice, outdoor meal without compromising on green space. An additional rarity is the detached two-car garage.
Perhaps not as sexy but equally important, the roof, insulation, plumbing and electrical have been updated, and the backyard has a new 8-foot privacy fence.
Listing agent David Lee of Dave Perry Miller’s Updike Pugh team says that a property like this one doesn’t come up often.
“This home is perfect for anyone wanting to live in the heart of Dallas but still have that small neighborhood feel,” he says. “Residents of Perry Heights love being able to access all the restaurants and nightlife while still walking your dogs and waving to the neighbors.”
