Love is in the air! What better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than christening your first home with your mate! This house, 4241 Somerville Avenue, is a cute, cozy traditional that will be perfect for a pair of lovebirds to make their nest!
It’s a two-bedroom, one bath home near Mockingbird Lane and Skillman Street with 1,158 square feet of living space near excellent shopping, outstanding nightlife, mass transit, and an award-winning elementary school campus (Stonewall Jackson, DISD). Marketed by Ebby agent Lynn Handlin, this sweet little cottage is priced at $269,000.
There’s fresh paint and built-ins throughout this home, which may seem small, but it makes the most of it’s petite stature. After you cross the threshold through the stained-glass front door, you’ll notice a gas fireplace in the living area, which, along with plenty of room for comfy furniture, should make you want to snuggle with your significant other in no time.
The kitchen is just the perfect spot to cook a romantic dinner for two. It has onyx-colored granite tile countertops, stainless appliances, and nearly new cabinets with seeded glass fronts. The washer and dryer are just off the kitchen, which leads to the backyard.
There are two bedrooms and a smaller, more narrow room in this house, which is used by the current owners as an exercise room/office. The other bedrooms feature neutral paint and trim with a few windows. All you have to do is draw the curtains, light some candles, put on some Barry White and BOOM — love nest!
The bathroom has an interesting mosaic tile vanity and a single glass vessel sink. It appears that the owners put in the tile over the bathroom’s original vanity, which wouldn’t have been my first choice in this remodel, but I’m sure it will flip someone’s switch. Still, it’s the only bathroom in this home, which may leave some prospective buyers heartbroken.
If you haven’t yet fallen for this home, it’s the spacious backyard that is going to have you at “Hello.” Just re-sodded and ready for some inspiration, the backyard features a tidy little deck and patio area that is perfect for parties big and small.
