I’ve fallen head over heels for a 1928 M Streets Tudor, and I know you will, too.
Located at 5350 Monticello Ave. in the coveted Greenland Hills neighborhood, this stunner was taken to the studs for a whole-house renovation that reimagined every space and expanded the footprint to five bedrooms, four bathrooms, two living areas, and 3,497 square feet on two stories.
“This house has all the charm and character of an old home—something that can’t be re-created with new construction—plus the functionality and amenities of new construction,” said Minnette Murray with Minnette Murray Properties, who is representing the property. “I love the 9-foot ceilings throughout, custom finishes, the perfect floorplan, and outdoor living options. This is an amazing house.”
The renovations were designed by renowned Dallas architectural firm Stocker Hoesterey Montenegro, and the quality shows through in high-end finish outs and details everywhere.
One of the challenges of older homes is a lack of space and too few bathrooms. This house solves all that with remarkable style and era-appropriate updates. I can’t wait to show it to you.
The entryway opens into the first living room, an elegant space with a marble, wood-burning fireplace, hardwood floors that flow throughout the first floor, recessed lighting, and a marvelous chandelier that fits the style of the home perfectly.
At the far end of the room, you can see the stairway, which leads to the second floor bedrooms (four up, one down).
I love how bright this M Street Tudor feels inside—so many windows to bring in natural light and draw attention to the features. The furniture and accessories help make sense of the space, too, and show flow and function. The floorplan is well thought-out and the redesign work makes the flow cohesive and easy.
Just off the living room through an original arched doorway (love it) is the formal dining room.
You have got to love this kitchen! It is completely new, with a walk-in pantry, marble counters, built-in wine refrigerator, built-in refrigerator/freezer, a farm sink, huge island (perfect for entertaining), and a pot filler over the Viking commercial-grade gas range.
“Original stained glass windows remind buyers that this space has lots of stories to tell,” Murray said. “This kitchen offers so many amenities—it really is a chef’s space and gourmet’s dream.”
Just off the kitchen is the eat-in area, a cozy nook with walls of windows and French doors, built-in cabinets with leaded glass, bench seating, and room for a breakfast table.
The kitchen opens onto the second living area, located in the rear of the house with double French doors leading out to the fabulous outdoor living—more on that later! Look up in this family room and admire the coffered ceiling with contrasting gray paint. So stylish!
The master is generously sized at 16-by-16 with hardwood floors, recessed lighting, and lots of great windows. Its ensuite bathroom features marble counters, dual sinks, a jetted tub, walk-in closets, and a walk-in shower with frameless glass and bench.
The other four bedrooms each have unique architectural elements, lots of windows, ample closet space, and updated bathrooms.
Now let’s talk about the outdoor living at the M Streets Tudor. Off the second living area is a covered patio with fireplace, and an extended stone patio area for grilling. There’s a beautiful mature tree in the backyard, and lots of grassy green space for kids or pets to enjoy.
This home is listed for $899,500, a $20,500 reduction from the original list price. To find out more, contact Minette Murray.
