Live out your Hallmark movie dreams at this historic estate in East Dallas. The property operated as The Corinthian Bed and Breakfast for nearly 20 years. It hosted its last guests this month before the property went on the market.
The home was built in 1905, according to an original housing permit, and still bears some of the original details like hardwood floors, leaded glass windows, a handpainted fireplace and curved glass windows. The sellers renovated the property and added the kitchen and large dining room (which could be converted to additional living room) in their redesign.
The property has six bedrooms, six bathrooms and two half-bathrooms. Four of the bedrooms are in the main house, which is 4,736 square feet, and the carriage house has two separate suites, each with a bedroom, bathroom and kitchen.
Listing agent Becky Oliver of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty said the home has unique historic details.
“It’s like a step back in time,” Oliver said. “It clearly feels that way when you step in the house.”
The home was originally built for a doctor at Baylor and later used as an all-girls boarding house, she added.
The property at 4125 Junius St. features a large front patio with detailed design work and a large double front door with original wood and lead glass designs. The foyer has many classic details like paneling along the walls, carved wood above the door frames and an elaborate design on the wood floor. The front living room has a fireplace and carved wood details above the doors and windows.
Another living room is next to the formal dining room and also has a fireplace with handpainted details and carved wood designs above the doors and windows.
The formal dining room features wood paneling on the walls and carved details on the ceiling. The kitchen has white cabinets and stone details, and the room is open to a dining area that looks onto the backyard. Both the kitchen and the dining room, which could be converted into another living room, were added by the sellers in a renovation.
All of the bedrooms have en suite bathrooms, and the third floor of the home has a large game room.
“It’s a great event venue,” Oliver said, for future owners who want to use it as a B&B or rental property. It could also be a single-family dwelling, depending on the buyer’s preferences.
The home at 4125 Junius St. is on the market for $1,799,000.
