Over in the East Dallas neighborhood of Hollywood Heights, a Tudor just went on the market three days ago and it’s a beaut.
With 1,536 square feet, three bedrooms, and two full baths, our Thursday Three Hundred at 510 Cordova St. is surprisingly large for its era. It was built in 1927, but offers a lot of space, as well as a two-car garage, and backyard.
This house is beautifully maintained: the exterior alone tells you many people have loved this home through the years and taken good care of it, from the handsome brickwork and hardwood floors, to an original fireplace and some stained glass features. The neighborhood is situated to the northwest of East Grand Avenue and Tennison Park Golf Course, part of the Hollywood/Santa Monica Conservation District, one of the first in Dallas. The district protects the area’s historic homes. As such, owners are required to fill out a Conservation District Work Review Form from the City of Dallas before doing any exterior remodeling, repair, or improvements to their homes. This is crucial to keep in mind if you buy in a conservation district. The fines are no joke.
Walking through Hollywood Heights makes for a wonderful afternoon, with many other Tudors like this built before World War II. The house is equidistant from Lindsley Park, with its baseball field, basketball court, pavilion, picnic tables, and playground, and Randall Park, with a baseball and softball fields, basketball court, soccer field, tennis court, picnic tables, and trails.
Being in East Dallas, it is also close to White Rock Lake, the Dallas Arboretum, Lakewood, and all the other charms of the area.
It is listed by Ken Lampton of RE/MAX DFW Associates for $390,000. There’s an open house on Sunday from 1-3 p.m., so be sure to check it out and tell us what you think!
