One of Dallas’ most sought-after neighborhoods, the M Streets has two things going for it: location and charm. A spate of teardowns has threatened the latter, but there are still historic homes to be had, like the one at 5839 Marquita Ave.
It’s one of the area’s original 1920s Tudor homes, and lovely period details can be found throughout. It may look modest from the street, but this three-bedroom, three-bath home contains 1,736 square feet of living space. Plus it has a detached two-car garage.
The home is on the market for $514,999, listed with John Scoggins and Brittany Rich of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty. It’s priced nicely for the location and size, and although the kitchen and master bath could use some upgrades, features like a vaulted ceiling in the living room, peaked Tudor arches, and charming tile in the hall bath make the home worth the investment.
Have young kids? This backyard is spacious, and schools are promising. Robert E. Lee is experiencing a resurgence right now, with parents organizing the school to bring in a dual-language immersion program and an International Baccalaureate curriculum.
