What a difference a few months can make. If you were in the market for a family-friendly home last summer, you might’ve toured 6706 Duffield Dr., which was for sale in Far North Dallas for $360,000.
No doubt at that price, the size (2,449 square feet) and the schools (the coveted Brentfield/Park Hill/Pearce track in RISD) appealed to you. But the 1980s interior may have been more than you could see past.
Leave it to folks with an eye for design to see this diamond in the rough for what it was. Following a complete renovation, this gem now shines bright, ready for the right family to move in. It also boasts a heftier price tag of $515,000. But, no detail was overlooked in this reimagining, starting with the exterior brick, which was painted white and accented with dark wood shutters, a column, and contemporary front door.
Inside, beautiful dark hardwoods run throughout the common areas. Plantation shutters dress up many of the windows, and designer lighting fixtures — many made custom for the home— add plenty of visual interest.
The light-flooded, sunken living room is perfect for entertaining, with a see-through brick fireplace shared by the dining room. The remodeled farm kitchen is a vision in all white and stainless steel, with new appliances (hello double oven!) and natural stone counters. Laundry is conveniently located just off the breakfast nook.
The split floorplan boasts four bedrooms, including a spacious master with a beam-accented vaulted ceiling and new carpeting. A sliding barn door lends privacy to the luxuriously redone en-suite bath, which features his-and-hers sinks, a frameless walk-in shower, and separate tub. The remaining two full baths are similarly updated, and the fourth oversized bedroom could easily serve as a second living area. A bonus solarium gives kids a sunny spot to play.
Even the backyard got an overhaul, with the pool and hot tub freshly resurfaced and all equipment serviced. With hot temperatures right around the corner, they’ll be ready for a pool party just in time for you to move in.
The property, which offers all the benefits of a custom home without any of the headache, is listed by Brandt Barham of Keller Williams Realty.
