Just off 75 and Belt Line Road in Richardson, there's a quaint 1950s charmer of a home. Listed at $199,000 by Ebby Halliday's The Selzer Group, 330 E. Tyler St. sits on a tree-lined cul de sac lot, located within walking distance of Richardson Elementary School and Terrace Park.
Inside, original hardwood floors flow throughout the airy, window-filled spaces, including a living room with a tile-accented fireplace. A second, more relaxed living space is right off the kitchen.
The recently updated kitchen includes a commercial-grade range, lighted and glass-front cabinets, white subway tile, and handy nooks for displaying crockery. A chalkboard accent wall ups the whimsy. There are two dining areas: a more formal room with a chandelier and large window, and the breakfast bar in the kitchen.
A spacious master bedroom connects to a bathroom that's brimming with original peach tile (and probably begging for an upgrade). The second bathroom also has original tile, but it's a more palatable color: blue. A pedestal sink in the smaller bath keeps it from feeling cramped.
Seeking some peace and quiet while you work? A detached office space — not included in the home's 1,700 square feet — provides solitude, with enough extra room to relax if you need to get away from it all for a while.
Large flagstones dot the covered patio, which is spacious enough for plenty of furniture and a barbecue grill. The wide-open feeling from the front extends to the backyard, which is encircled by leafy trees and manicured landscaping.
In a hot real estate market, no well-priced home stays listed for long: This one's already under contract.
