Those looking for a home for the holidays would be wise to check out 5025 Junius St., a Munger Place property renovated by Profound Estate. Although updated for today's lifestyle, the American Foursquare home maintains attractive historic features such as built-ins and other Craftsman-style woodwork.
At 2,894 square feet, this home has plenty of room for a growing family, with five bedrooms, three-and-a-half bedrooms, two living rooms, and a study. The property also features a large backyard, detached two-car garage, and pool.
Other highlights include the designer kitchen and a master suite with sitting and dressing rooms. But for every new feature in the home, there's a historical tidbit to match it.
Built in 1918, it is known as the Skielvig-Schoolfield-Little Flower Mission home because of its impressive list of former owners. S.C. Skielvig was an architect who had a hand in building courthouses in North Texas. Next up were Benjamin Schoolfield, a respected orthopedist, and his wife. Buyers will also delight to know the home once served as the headquarters for the Little Flower Missionary Society, the oldest organization at Saint Thomas Aquinas Parish.
Rogers Healy & Associates listing agent Vince Leibowitz notes that as much care was taken to make this home structurally sound as it is strikingly beautiful.
Perhaps the best part about this property is its $550,000 price tag. For the right buyer, this historical yet renovated home located this close to downtown is hard to beat.
