5347 Montrose IHOTW

This is exactly how we imagine Kate and William living in Anmer Hall, the young royals’ country house. They’ve undoubtedly created a traditional, timeless, warm, and tasteful home — just like this charming cottage in Greenway Parks. It has that classic European style passed down from generation to generation. And it’s so refreshing to see a home that actually looks like a home, with nooks and crannies, detailing, color, and pattern. (more…)

5539 Montrose Dr. Greenway ParksBuying a house is a lot like online dating. You see the profile, the gorgeous photos and then you meet. That’s when you find out if that profile is really too good to be true.

5319 Nakoma IHOTW

Greenway Parks has always been a sought-after neighborhood. The central location, with close proximity to everything Dallas has to offer and homes built around “common” greenbelt areas, are some of the reasons we’re seeing it trend to a younger dynamic. So when a great house hits the market, it’s big news.

This modern traditional at 5319 Nakoma was listed by Sanders Avrea with Allie Beth Allman & Associates on Monday for $2.23 million. It’s perfect for a young family and it’s an excellent example of everything that goes right when you remodel a home.

Contemporary Home, 5343 Wenonah Dr., Dallas, Texas

Greenway Parks is a distinctive Dallas neighborhood, to say the least. It’s included in The National Register of Historic Places, has received The Neighborhood Achievement Award from Preservation Dallas and was chosen as one of Texas’ 25 Best Places by the Texas Society of Architects. That’s some pedigree. It’s also nestled between Bluffview and the Park Cities, minutes from Love Field and the Southwestern Medical District: location, location, location.

It was designed in 1927 by David R. Williams, in the English tradition of having a “common-green,” a green space for use by the neighborhood community. This was a novel concept for Americans in the 1920’s, so you can say Greenway Parks was setting the pace back then and has continued to do so throughout history. Architects of note, like O’Neill Ford and Howard Meyer, have designed significant homes in the neighborhood, it’s zoned as a Conservation District and the HOA ensures not only is your home protected but you will also have a lot of fun if you can find a home for sale. And we did, on one of the largest lots in Greenway Parks.
