$350,000 Homes in Connecticut, Michigan and Texas


This single-story house is in Junius Heights, an area developed in 1906, about four miles northeast of downtown. The neighborhood has more than 800 homes, many in the Craftsman and Prairie styles, which makes it Dallas’s largest historic district as well as its newest (it received the designation in 2006). Trees, front porches, parks and schools are in nice supply. In addition to shops and restaurants in the immediate area, there are commercial clusters in the nearby neighborhoods of Lakewood, about a mile north, and Munger Place, the same distance northwest.

Size: 1,573 square feet

Price per square foot: $223

Indoors: The owner, who bought the property 10 years ago, renovated the bathrooms, put in new insulation and updated the HVAC system. The original door, with its rectangular panes and panels, opens to a living room with hardwood floors and a wood-burning fireplace with decorative tiles.

French doors connect this space to a dining room painted teal, with white molding. Passing through this room, you reach the kitchen, which was opened in a previous renovation and continues to the back of the house. It has granite-topped white cabinets, stainless steel appliances and space for informal seating or dining. A half bathroom has a beadboard wainscot and pedestal sink.

A hallway off the kitchen leads to three bedrooms with hardwood floors. Two of the bedrooms have sets of windows on two walls. The hall bath includes a shower-over-tub.

Outdoor space: A rocking-chair porch is at the front of the house, and a raised deck is off the kitchen, stepping down to a fenced backyard with a stone patio. The owner added a detached one-car garage with storage, which opens to a rear alley. Additional cars can be parked in the driveway to the side of the house.

Taxes: $6,485 (2019)
