Historic Home in Heart of Historic District Sold
In the heart of Munger Place, this 100-year-old home with a wrap-around porch and porte-cochere conveys all of the aesthetic attributes that propelled Munger Place as the finest residence park in the Southland when it was built and then as the first single-family historic district in Dallas.
It is rare that the original craftsmanship, moldings, beams, and trim of a home survive 100 years and they have in this renovated home. The wood floors, wide passageways, and tall ceilings celebrate the original character of the home and its innate architectural modernity and its style was inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright.
Lot Next Door is Zoned for a Historic Single-Family Home
The adjacent Munger Place lot will be sold and the buyer is required to build a historic looking home with the height and setbacks of the original deed restrictions of the neighborhood. While many neighborhoods are disrupted by large or unsightly homes being built, you are protected by the Munger Place historic ordinance.
4 Bedrooms and Guest House
Because this Munger Place home is on a larger lot, it can easily accommodate the 3,500 sf home with large formal rooms and four bedrooms and three baths, with the added benefit of guest quarters. The porte-cochere provides covered parking next to the house in lieu of a detached garage.
Fabulous Value in Old East Dallas
The listing prices of similar sized homes found in lesser East Dallas neighborhoods are much higher than the listing price of this home. Munger Place is the finest Old East Dallas neighborhood, designed as the most expensive neighborhood and is and has been home to many of Dallas’s leading citizens, professors and business people. Very seldom does a home of this quality become available in Munger Place.
Large Munger Place Lot, 70' Wide and .252 Acres
This oversized lot gives this historic home with a wraparound porch and porte-cochere an even more elegant sense of proportion. Across the street from a restored home and sharing a corner with one of the first homes built in original Munger Place.
