It is not every day that a Folk Victorian home pops up on the Dallas housing market. And a new construction that mirrors this architectural style? Pretty much unheard of. So it's easy to be instantly smitten with this four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom new construction at 4705 Worth St. in East Dallas.
The charming home in the blossoming Buckner Park neighborhood is listed for $799,000 with Edward Tung of JP Piccinini Real Estate Services.
"The design references are mainly from examples in California and some in Houston, and it is because the designer and partner, Ken Law, wants to introduce something refreshing to this historic area," Tung says.
In fact, you may never have known how much you admire this particular type of architecture. But, fancy the prominent porch and gable-front plan? Dig the raking cornice, beveled lap siding, and shingles on the pediment? Yep, you are officially a fan of Folk Victorian.
Inside the home, the floor plan features 3,641 square feet of a more modern design, including concrete floors, a waterfall kitchen island, a see-through ventless fireplace, and custom cabinets. And the freestanding tub located inside the shower is swoonworthy, to say the least.
Now, about the location. Just minutes from downtown Dallas, Deep Ellum, and Lower Greenville, the emerging Buckner Park neighborhood is attracting homeowners and business owners alike who want to take advantage of its proximity to, well, everything, while they still can at a relatively approachable price point.
"Picking up the fast developing momentum from Lower Greenville, there have been numerous multi- and single-family constructions going up in this area, and yet the real estate market is still affordable compared to all of the other established areas near downtown," Tung says. "And with the Epic Development drawing near to its completion, all indications suggest that the area will continue to prosper."
For those who want to see the neighborhood and home up close, Tung is hosting an open house for the property from 1-3 pm Sunday, August 18.
