House candy: Five-bedroom home in North Dallas is sparkling with design updates
Seriously, check out that unique kitchen backsplash.
DALLAS Oh. My. Gawd. Talk about perfection! Talk about terrific transitional! Talk about House P! This unbelievably gorgeous Forest Knoll home at 4147 Hockaday Drive has been renovated all the way to amazing, no?
From the brand-new exotic wood floors to the moulding in trim, this house is move-in ready for a family! Just west of Midway Road and south of Forest Lane, this house is in a great location for a family keen to start their kids at some of the top private schools Dallas has to offer. It’s marketed by Ebby Halliday Realtors agent Therese Rourk for $589,000.
It’s a fantastic size, too, with five bedrooms, four full bathrooms, and 3,370 square feet on an oversized lot. Everything inside is open and accessible, with the formals at the front of the house with a wood-burning fireplace, the kitchen opening to the family areas, and the master suite on the first floor.
The kitchen features granite counters and stainless appliances, as well as plenty of cabinet space and a fantastic industrial sink faucet. The backsplash adds just enough texture to keep things interesting, too.
The master bedroom is huge at 25-feet by 13-feet, which gives you plenty of room for oversized furniture and even a nook with a cozy chaise and chair to watch TV or read, or generally avoid unruly children. (#justsaying) The master bath is a five-piece affair with a soaking tub and large walk-in tiled shower. The mirrors are a little funky for me, and I’d switch those out, but otherwise it’s pristine and appealing to almost any taste.
The only thing that kind of irks me about this property is that, while everything is gorgeous and new and sparkly on the inside, the backyard didn’t get any attention. Why’s that, seller? Still, it’s a blank slate for a buyer to do what they want, and maybe even put in a pool. That sounds like a good excuse!
