What You Can Buy: Dallas’ Oldest Homes

Oldies but goodies.
By  |
2600 State Street

Sometimes we turn our real estate-obsessed eye to specific neighborhoods. Other times we look for a particular style, such as smart homes or cottages. Today, we decided to discover the longest-standing Dallas dwellings on the market today.


2604 Hibernia Street (1890)


Price: $675,000
2 bedrooms / 1 bath / 1,368 square feet
Highlights: While this bungalow-style home could use a fresh coat of paint and a little TLC, those who appreciate old-fashioned charm will love the original stained glass front door and blue-tiled fireplace mantle. With wood floors and a sunny, airy interior, this State-Thomas find would be perfect as a home or a business.


2600 State Street (1889)


Price: $2,175,000

Numbers: 4 bedrooms / 2.5 baths / 4,371 square feet

Highlights: Built in 1889, this is the oldest home on our list. The stately and vibrant Victorian has clearly been well maintained, and as a result has major curb appeal. 2600 State Street is in Uptown, just a few blocks from the trolley line and Whole Foods.


2707 Hibernia Street (1900)

2707HiberniaPhoto1 9.42.08 AM

Year Built: 

Price: $1,032,300

Numbers: 3 Bed / 2.1 Bath / 2,294 square feet

Highlights: While 2707 Hibernia seems to be occupied by an architect at the moment, its concrete floors could lend themselves to any sort of office space. A Juliet balcony with views of downtown, as well as an attic bathroom with a claw-foot tub and vintage tile, could also make this State-Thomas area house a home.


5017 Swiss Avenue (1907)


Price: $1,249,000

Numbers: 4 Bed / 3.2 Bath / 5,300 Square Feet

Highlights: Located in the Swiss Avenue Historic District, this home is the best of both worlds. It has retained an early 20th century feel, while incorporating modern elements. The spacious kitchen, complete with a breakfast nook and ample counter space, features chrome appliances; the dining room’s dark mahogany wood floors and white walls add polished style. Best of all is the home’s wraparound porch and backyard pool, both of which are framed by leafy trees and stone pathways.
