As seen on Candy's Dirt

Exceptional and unique home in the heart of University Park has a rare charm that sets it apart. This Texas Regional style home is known as The Dickinson House, named after an early professor of theology at SMU. From the walkway bricks retrieved from the Fort Worth stockyards to the bead board ceilings to the generous sized, fully screened in porch, every aspect of this house has special features that create a warm and welcoming ambience.

Enter the living room and be greeted by a light filled environment with a row of French doors and a slate fireplace; walk through the dining room to the kitchen where granite counters and classic Wood Mode cabinetry make a hospitable place for cooking and entertaining. The lovely staircase is a striking feature in the living room and continues to the second floor, and down again into the family room, making the house flow beautifully for easy family living. The large master bedroom is on the lower floor and the master bath has designer tiles and custom finishes with extensive built in storage that creates a sleek finished look to the space. There are three living spaces, the formal living and dining area, a comfortable family room that allows ample room for family gatherings on the lower floor and a generously sized media room on the second floor, complete with refrigerator, icemaker and fireplace. Upstairs are three light filled bedrooms equipped with built in storage and desk space, a large utility room and a separate office. Porches on the upper and lower levels invite leisurely conversation. A completely screened porch makes a separate living area overlooking the backyard. This home features an abundance of custom built-ins from under stair storage, the eating nook in the kitchen, custom pantry built-ins and many other details. The detached quarters include additional space for an office or bedroom, a separate bath, workshop and three car garage along with a separate patio area. Within walking distance to Snider Plaza shops and restaurants and the SMU campus, this home has history, exceptional quality, and charm not to be found in new construction.
