Nothing quite like a cute house to break you out of your after-lunch food coma. This cute bungalow in Munger Place has so many fun details that you’re going to fall for it, folks! And hard! This is a front-porch neighborhood, and nothing would be more attractive or refreshing than a glass of iced tea on this front porch!
Seriously, nothing cuter than a pink house! Amiright? Especially one that has been maintained so well! This is a four-bedroom, three-bath prairie-style bungalow in one of the best historic neighborhoods in Dallas and was featured in the area’s 2011 home tour. It’s very walkable — even bikable — and has tons of great shops and restaurants nearby in Lakewood, including the Lakewood Whole Foods. It’s marketed by Ebby Halliday Realtor George Haynes for $387,500.
Now, I am a huge fan of pops of color on a neutral palette, but for some reason I am strangely attracted to the ochre walls and bright blue and red furniture throughout this house. The bright colors against the classic shapes and white beadboard just works, right? Crazy, I know.
The furniture is an interesting mix of traditional and antique, with some modern elements. Nothing evokes this more than the living room, which has some great Queen Anne chairs mixed with more traditional furniture and modern lines. There is more than 2,400 square feet in this house, so you can fill and curate all of these cool rooms with tons of great finds.
The kitchen, well, you can tell that it hasn’t been really renovated, just updated here-and-there in a very hodge-podge manner. Some of the homes in this neighborhood still feature antique gas stoves and Chambers ovens — cast-iron enamel behemoths that dominate the space. Still, it’s cute, with cabinetry and stand-alones giving you enough storage for your cookware and china. I think it would be a great investment, though, to overhaul this space for a gourmet experience. Just keep the chandelier, OK?
So, what do you think? Cute enough to eat or what? If you want to get a better feel for the space, it’s open this sunday, July 28, from 2 to 4 p.m.
