Few homes are as full of anticipation and surprise as 4926 Elsby Avenue. From custom built-ins and display nooks to original touches around every corner, this eclectic Bluffview charmer elegantly mingles the old and the new to create a delightful family retreat.
Take, for example, your first glimpse of the interior. After approaching the traditional exterior and stepping through the imported front door inset with floral stained-glass accents, you’re met by a modern industrial-style floating staircase composed of wood, metal and glass. It’s a total plot twist. And it foreshadows all the pleasant surprises this gorgeous home has in store.
You feel at home in the formal living and dining areas, complete with a gas fireplace, abundant natural light, hardwood floors and plenty of space for gatherings. But climb the staircase to the full-floor master suite and suddenly it’s as if you’re on vacation, nestled in your own private hideaway. The cabin-like suite is draped with hard woods and has a sitting area, vaulted shed-style ceiling and walk-in closet. Inside the adjoining private bath you’ll find double sinks, a jetted tub and walk-in shower with rain showerhead. A thoughtfully placed skylight adds brightness.
Downstairs, the drama continues to unfold in a sleek neutral-toned kitchen featuring granite countertops, stainless-steel appliances and a center island with breakfast bar. The island is easily the heart of the home, serving as command central for homework, dinner prep, gab sessions and quick bites at breakfast. As an added bonus, the kitchen island looks out on the family room and wood-burning fireplace, so the cook is always part of the fun, and he or she can keep an eye on the action. Located off the family room is a sunroom and utility room, flexible spaces that could be set as a dining room, sitting area, office and playroom.
Even more flexible is the detached guesthouse in the home’s backyard. Converted from the original garage, it includes a living area, kitchenette, bedroom and full bath with standing shower. Overflowing with potential, it’s an ideal space for an in-law suite, office, art or music studio, or rental property for residual income. It’s truly a dream for anyone who has a side hustle or needs extra space and privacy.
When extended family and friends come to visit, the two downstairs bedrooms, full bath with charming tiling and brushed woodwork for a vintage feel, butler’s pantry and powder bath, make hosting a breeze. One of the bedrooms has French doors opening to the sunroom which makes for a great study or media den, if desired. On nice days, take the party to the backyard and set a festive table on the deck. Established plants outline the yard’s perimeter, making it feel like an oasis despite being so close to the shops and eateries at Inwood Village and Lover’s Lane. Jose, Neighborhood Services, Shin Sei, 7-Eleven, antique shops, Providence School, and many others are within walking distance. And with easy access to the Dallas North Tollway and other main arteries of the city, life couldn’t be better here in Briarwood. This is a great time to get in to one of Dallas’s hottest neighborhoods.
