Old East Dallas is filled with some of North Texas’ most storied homes, especially in the Peak’s Suburban Addition Historic District, which dates back to the 1850s and is the earliest developed portion of East Dallas. This carefully preserved neighborhood contains several distinct architectural styles, including Prairie homes, Craftsmans, Tudors, and the city’s largest concentration of Victorians. Each home is bound to strict regulations on paint colors, architectural accents, and new additions. That’s why, even after a century and a half, the neighborhood has an unparalleled sense of cohesion.
4511 Worth Street is situated in the heart of the historic district, just steps from Buckner Park. Its façade has all the charm of a centenarian home, with scalloped shingles, columns, and a fanciful front door overhang.
While this build’s exterior reflects its age, its interior has been thoughtfully renovated with modern finishes. Note the crisp crown molding, recessed lighting, and shining wood floors. The home’s floorplan has a nice flow thanks to several cased openings and glass French doors.
The kitchen and bathrooms have been updated with new tile and granite counters. Several original features remain, like crystal doorknobs and a claw-foot bathtub.
Though this house isn’t especially roomy–its two bedrooms and two and a half baths fit into 1,600 square feet–its backyard is large enough to comfortably entertain guests. A pergola outfitted with string lights looks out onto the grassy lawn and the detached two-car garage, while an old tree provides additional shade for summer days.
