Christine McKenny to Showcase 3211 Saint Johns in Sunday Open House from 1 to 3pm (April 24, 2016)

If the wish list for your new home includes location, curb appeal, character, space, a chef’s kitchen, a great backyard with a pool, and storage galore, you may want to rearrange your Sunday afternoon (5.24.16) so you can see Top Producer Christine McKenny’s open house at 3211 Saint Johns in Highland Park from 1-3pm.

Starting with the neighborhood, this four-bedroom, four and ½ bath home for sale in Dallas for $1,875,000 has a European feel. It’s within walking distance of Armstrong Elementary, SMU and the Katy Trail. Snider Plaza is close by, too, as is Mockingbird Station and 75 Central for easy access to Downtown or North Dallas.

3211 Saint Johns

The drive-up offers a taste of what’s to come inside. Mature trees, Lambert’s landscaping and a circle drive invite you to take a closer look. As you enter the radiant front door, thoughtful details catch your eye. Rich hardwoods, crown molding, chair railing, recessed and art lighting and lovely millwork all send the message that elegance has taken up residence here.



Moving on to the adjacent sitting room/formal living room, large windows looking toward the front yard and a gas fireplace encourage lingering, while built-in cabinets and glass shelving add a practical component. The 17’ long dining room can accommodate an oversized dining table, making family gatherings comfortable. Everything about the upstairs master suite speaks of space as well, from the seating area, private balcony and bonus exercise room to the master bath with separate his-and-her dressing areas and large closets. And the expansive quarters could serve as a game room or house guests with its kitchenette and full bath.






The updated kitchen will speak to chefs of every ability, with 6-burner gas cooktop with pop-up down draft, built-in dual SubZero refrigerator/freezer, warming drawer and sink with a great view. The generous pantry, silver closet, wet bar and French doors that open onto the patio, quietly remind that the home was designed for families and entertaining.



Speaking of, the landscaped backyard has 20+ ornamental trees, a covered back patio with iron fencing and a sparkling pool with water features, seating areas, a fire pit and covered storage. The installed Mosquito Nix system helps make the outdoors pleasant even during Texas summers.



Finally, the finished attic offers 500-600 square feet of protected storage space, along with a cedar closet on the landing upstairs.  All secondary bedrooms have walk-in closets with built-ins, and the garage has built-in storage and covered flooring.




If this sounds just like what you’ve been looking for, please come see Christine this Sunday or call to schedule a showing at (214)662-7758.
