Tag Archives: M Streets
Demand is high and prices for rentals are usually higher in the Lower Greenville area. Why? It’s practically party central! It’s where the M Streets and much of Vickery Park goes to get down. There are restaurants, entertainment, bars, and lovely homes with tree-lined streets and fabulous neighbors.
Friday Four Hundred: Best of Both Worlds in Vickery Park! Historic District Charm With All-New Interiors!
This is exactly the kind of home I like. It’s in a quaint and accessible historic district near a ton of amenities, and it’s got absolutely none of the problems you often find with historic homes, such as horrible ventilation, mis-matched kitchens, sloping foundations, a complete lack of closet space, and antiquated bathrooms.
Cameron Holland Helps Clients Flip Homes ‘With Training Wheels,’ And This Tudor on Monticello is a Prime Example
Cameron Holland, Broker at Howell Holland Real Estate, is a young gun at just 29 years old. And yet, he’s got an eye for real estate and he knows what sells. That’s why friends and clients enlist his expertise to help them flip homes in the higher-end markets of Dallas. Holland just finished consulting on 5514 Monticello Avenue, which is now on the market for $498,000. This Greenland Hills Tudor is so fresh and so clean on the inside that you’d never guess the home was built in 1926. Read on for the skinny:
Friday Four Hundred: Hold Onto Your Hat, Because This Gorgeous M Streets Cottage Will Blow You Away!
Oh my gawd I LOVE this house! I’ve seen a lot of renovation jobs — some turning out bland, some just plain butt ugly — and when you see a complete, to-the-studs renovation go right it’s like nirvana. Your toes get all tingly and your check-writing finger gets itchy and, well, you just have to have it!
I have a list of things I want in my next home. It goes a little something like this: 1. Pool, 2. New or like-new kitchen, 3. Two full baths, 4. Pool.
Not only does this house have everything on that list, but it’s also in the highly sought-after neighborhood of Greenland Hills. In fact, 5330 McCommas is not only a great house for a small family, empty-nesters, or a professional couple, but the location makes it all but ideal. Continue reading
Towel warmers, anyone? What is this, Champ D’Or? You are KILLING me with this listing: it is unbelievable! 2246 square feet, built in 1926, remodeled in 1946 and then very, very recently as you can SO tell. Only two bedrooms, two baths, but look at that master — it is worth sucking up another bedroom for! Closets! Who needs a kid, they cost money and take up rooms. Borrow a niece and check guests into the Palomar down on Central.
Tuesday (Le$$ Than!) Two Hundred: School’s Out, Time to Start Looking for a Place for the Cute Coeds to Live, Get Ready to Fall in LOVE!
Fasten your seatbelts, you are going to either die or fly when you see this ADORABLE unit at 5200 Martel in Uptown. 934 perfectly adorable square feet, one bedroom, one bath, just right for a hot new coed who’d like gated security too, thank you. Oh and a great big walk-in closet. It is owned by Jenny Grumbles. Jenny and her mom Fran Holley co-run a shop called Frantiquated. Basically, they find stuff, I mean like junk, in bulk trash bins and then they clean them up (Lysol them too, I hope), fix them up, and sell them in their shop. Some folks just have the eye, the talent to do this, and Jenny Grumbles is one of those peeps. See for yourself:
Friday Four Hundred: So Cheap You Can Still Have a Mercedes on Mercedes, Plus a Master Shower Big Enough for Block Parties
I have been test-driving the Mercedes ML and just love it, so I am in an M Streets frame of mind. How could I resist this darling Greenland Hills tudor on one of THEE very best blocks that has a shower big enough for a block party? Built in 1929 but very much updated to the prsent, yet hand-crafted charm and history abounds. This is a house you want to hug, from the gleaming original hardwoods to a master bath that will knock your socks off. (This is a Master you will want to take to bed!) The master bedroom and bath is huge, and the car-wash shower is the pride of the neighborhood. (I hear block parties are in fact held in this shower.) The kitchen features custom maple cabinets, large gas range, granite tile counters & opens to the den. The den has stained concrete floors, fireplace, wood beams, & tall ceilings that bring in lots of natural light. The home is more than 2100 square feet with three bedrooms, two and a half baths, and two living areas. You will want to live inside this house, but outside is a great fenced yard and huge patio for BBQs. Primo M Streets area and even a two-car garage space for that Mercedes ML. 5215 Mercedes is listed at $434,900. Do we have a great real estate market or what?
We all love the Mmmmmm Streets, as I call them. Here is an angel at 6232 McCommas just waiting in the wings: updated home in absolute move in, mint condition. Cape cod style with dormers makes you think it’s nestled in Connecticut or even The Hamptons. Still, you get about 2500 square feet of southern charm in this puppy. Outside, professionally landscaped grounds. Inside, cozy interiors and a darling Feng Sui red door! The living areas have fireplaces, crown moldings, plantation shutters, & gorgeous original hardwood floors. The master suite is downstairs with a great, big oversized oversized bathroom with clawfoot tub that just looks old-fashioned: the interior is loaded with airjets that will whirl your worries away. There is also a walk-in shower, huge walk-in closet, and pretty double french doors to the backyard and deck. Think that’s a lot for 2500 square feet, three bedrooms and two baths. Wait, it gets better. You get an amazing remodeled kitchen with stainless gas stove, huge island, wet bar, guest quarters and a fully screen in porch for great summertime camp-outs. This house just looks like Pleasantville and you know what, it is! $539,000 and I am not making that up!
A real, live gingerbread house just in time for the holidays! Have you ever seen anything cuter? I could EAT this house. So cute, such charm. Classic M Street Tudor style home has just received a new coat of exterior pain — I mean, paint on that trim! Three bedrooms, 2 baths, 2 living areas including oversized living room. Hardwoods throughout, yeah! Master has private bath. Detached, one-car garage with quarters which includes full bath and kitchenette so air tight it is currently being used as sound studio. My ony beef: the kitchen needs to be updated. But this home has so much charm and character and everything else (1748 square feet), I’d say just do take out and turn the kitchen into a spa! Offered at $350,000. Call agent Michael Campbell over at Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s tell HER to tie a giant red bow around this house, and give it to yourself for Christmas. That’s right, Michael is a SHE!
