Friday Four Hundred: Munger Place Hot Mama Has Double Masters, Loft, and a Friday Night Hot Tub REDUCED FOR QUICK SALE

Published October 22, 2011 by Candy Evans

The listing agent will die when I tell you this secret: these people want to sell this house. Bigtime. Turns out, they are beginning a new fun life with their second home which just happens to be a sailboat. So this 2938 square foot Munger Place mama has been reduced from $459,000 to $395,000 and the sellers are totally serious. SERIOUS. The prairie-style home was built in 1925 but recently updated and rewired. You get three bedrooms, three and a half baths, two of those bedrooms being master suites. This would be a perfect home for a young family with one child or empty nesters who may have an elderly parent plop in for several months. I love hand scraped hardwoods more than just about anything, and this house has them everywhere. The kitchen may be labeled “gourmet”: granite countertops and sub zero, good enough for me. Then there are three living areas and a sunroom/ study off one of the masters. (Call it the Master’s Master!) An upstairs loft has the half bath and makes a great media or gameroom. Updated wiring. The garage has an unfinished bonus room, and an electric gate on the driveway for security. Not much yard, like less than a quarter acre, but check out the great wood deck and that hot tub. What a way to relax after a hard week at the office! 5944 Bryan Parkway is listed with April McGowan, Keller Williams Urban, Dallas.
