Look what just popped on the market. 5337 Edmondson Ave. is more than a diamond in the rough. First of all, the location is prime—smack dab between the Dallas North Tollway and Inwood Road in West Highland Park. That means it’s minutes from anything. Second, this home has great bones and a great floor plan. The original hardwoods are in fabulous shape, and the kitchen—well, I might lose the wallpaper and lighten up those cabinets. However, the appliances are new and stainless. But here’s the deal: you are getting 2,445 square feet, two bedrooms, two baths, sitting area in master, and a study. Now, what do we think about the glass blocks in the master? Personally, I’m not a huge fan; they’re too Windex intensive. I suggest saying goodbye to glass blocks and hello to open shower with marble slab walls and an overhead rainfall shower. Oh, that sounds so good! The two-car garage is in the rear, and the one-quarter acre lot is lushly treed and beautifully landscaped. All this for $599,000. Go in, ask for some resurfacing allowances, and get yourself a West Highland Park honey.
