Hot Property: Sun-Soaked Craftsman in Junius Heights

Hope you like natural light.

Okay, let’s just get to the point here. I challenge you to count the number of windows in this 1,832-square-foot Craftsman. I have tried three times and I keep getting tripped up for various reasons. Maybe you can do it? If you succeed, dear reader, please leave a comment.

All of this is to say that there are a lot of windows in this Junius Heights charmer. A bay window in the kitchen. Stained glass windows in the living room. Rows of windows in the sunroom. There is not a room sans window. Which is great news for the white-painted brick fireplace, the classic black-and-white tile, and the original hardwood floors, which receive plenty of sunlight (and thus, attention) throughout the 20s home. There’s even a pair of pane-filled French doors to the dining room that don’t really have any effect on natural light, but they’re still pretty.

There are other wonderful things about this Old East Dallas home, of course. A large covered porch begs for a pair of Adirondack chairs. Thoughtful updates include a legit laundry room and an oversized one-car garage. Plus, it’s location in the Junius Heights Historic District ensures that the home’s neighbors will be homogenous in the charm department, and that when one of them inevitably has a barbecue, you’ll easily be able to walk there.
