Friday Five Hundred: Updated Ranch Backs to the New Northaven Trail, Pride and Joy of Dallas Parks

Published May 5, 2012 by Candy Evans

You know, the Katy Trail is no longer the only hot trail in town. Here’s a pretty home on Northaven and backing up to the Oncor Power lines, but keep in mind that statement has a new meaning! The City of Dallas Parks and Recreation just completed the Northaven Trail right behind this house, and already it is a huge hit.  The trail will link White Rock Creek Greenbelt, Royal Park and the Elm Fork Greenbelt. It will connect with the existing White Rock Creek Greenbelt Trail and the proposed Elm Fork Trail. The trail will also connect several public and private schools, churches, and a YMCA at a total length of 9.4 miles.

So the trail is behind this updated ranch at 6114 Northaven Road. Do not worry about a busy street situation: Northaven has speed bumps in this block. You are several homes off Preston. The home has been beautifully updated in every corner. Yes, Virginia, there are high ceilings! Also granite, travertine, and sleek tiles so you would never know she was born in 1953. The kitchen is Mr. Wolf and Mr. Viking, with granite counters and new cabinets, hand scraped wood floors plus travertine, great master bath suite,  three bedrooms, two and a half baths, formals, two car garage, carport and gate on a .5 acre wooded lot with huge trees,. Asking $549,000 and, in my opine, well priced!

Question: what do you think of the stucco slurry over brick? I am seeing a lot of it in ’50s and ’60s ranch remodels…
