A few years ago, there were great deals to be had all through the Preston Hollow and North Dallas area. Small single-story homes were being bought by builders for flipping or scraping, and the results were both incredible and horrifying.
Now, there are still new builds popping up left and right, but the pace isn’t as frenetic and teardowns are often giving way to thoughtful flips with smart upgrades.
And then, on some rare occasions, you can find homes that were untouched by the come-and-go parade of remodelers and contractors, and it is a trip to see them on the market. This one on Royal Lane near Hillcrest is a fabulous example of a great home that has wonderful original cabinetry with a large, grassy backyard — and it’s a value!
