Meet the neighborhood’s priciest finished house at the moment

White house with peaked roof over covered front porch.
Contemporary lines meet a traditional front porch at 575 Connally Street SE.
M2REST

Located on Connally Street, amidst Summerhill’s increasing investment and development, this redone, modernized traditional may look small at first glance, but there’s much to see behind that coral-colored front door.

It stands about two blocks from Wood’s Chapel BBQ, on the side of the neighborhood nearest Interstate 20, with cranes in the vicinity and more to come.

Inside, four bedrooms and three bathrooms consume the majority of the home, which property records peg at 1,746 square feet. Buyers could choose from a master on the main or master on the second floor.

Design details range from the (must-have) barn door on the office to the trendy light fixtures over the dining table and in the kitchen, while built-in shelving in the office and upstairs landing provides additional storage and display space.

In addition to the welcoming front porch, which overlooks the front-yard parking pad, a large deck in the fenced backyard provides ample opportunity to relax with family or entertain friends.

Open room with living room furniture in front followed by a dining table with the kitchen in the back.
The open floorplan equals clear views from the front door to the kitchen.

Sitting across the street from Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School, the home is within walking distance of both Phoenix Park and Grant Park, as the listing notes.

Just listed with M2REST for $599,000, the property could be one of the neighborhood’s priciest recent sales if it receives the full ask. It’s tied for most expensive listing at the moment.

Records indicate it was built in the mid-1990s, with a previous makeover having happened in 2000.
