If you haven’t passed by 5010 Junius St. in the past year, you should take a detour through Munger Place to see this historic home’s glow-up.

The home, originally built in 1912, is a combination of Prairie and Craftsman styles.

The Landmark Commission approved new front and rear porch designs, a side door removal and a new paint job so the renovation could begin. Other than those changes, the majority of features remain the same.

On Instagram, @historicdallastx posted photos before, during and after the transformation. Take a look at the content below for more details and pictures.

5010 Junius Street in Munger Place has undergone a huge transformation over the past year! This home, built in 1912, is a hybrid of Prairie and Craftsman styles. This hybrid style is common in many Dallas’ historic residential neighborhoods, and 5010 Junius is one of the best examples of it. The original porch had been altered decades before, but many of the Prairie high-style windows and doors remained, as did the decorative door surround and Craftsman style rafter tails. Landmark Commission approved a new front and rear porch design, paint, and removal of a side door. Otherwise, no major changes were made to the structure’s exterior and most of the work was to stabilize and maintain the original features. Swipe for some great photos from before, during, and after the renovation!
