Mockingbird Park is a great little neighborhood adjacent to West Highland Park and south of Greenway Parks. It’s friendly, safe, walkable, and convenient to just about everything, including Love Field and the UT Southwestern Medical Center. Our Saturday Eight Hundred is right in the heart of Mockingbird Park. It’s a charming, peaceful, light-filled, 2,218-square-foot cottage at 3910 Fairfax Avenue that was just listed by the Hickman Weber Group at Ebby Halliday for $835,000, and we’ll be surprised if it’s still around by this time next week.Built in 1953 it has all of the original charm but has been updated in a timeless manner with classic elements.
“The number one thing about this home is that it’s so fresh,” Chris Hickman said. “It’s very tastefully done. The sellers have updated and decorated in a timeless manner. The living room is the perfect spot to sit and read and look out on the amazing mature trees in the front yard.”
That’s another lovely thing about this neighborhood and the lot – lovely large trees in both front and back yards.It’s always interesting to see how these older homes address present livability needs. The original formal dining area has been turned into a great spot to watch TV. It’s a terrific idea.“The kitchen, for this size of home, is huge with tons of storage,” Hickman said. A nice balance of space exists between the kitchen and dining area. You can see what’s going on and maintain conversation, but there’s still a division between prep space and dining space.That vaulted dining room was originally used as a den. If you enjoy entertaining, there’s nothing more intimate than a cozy dinner in front of the fire. When the weather is warm open up the doors and let the entertaining flow out to the backyard.The home has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a powder room.
The backyard is an excellent space for entertaining. There’s a sizable patio with a built-ingrill, plenty of yard, and the driveway will make a great dance floor!Let’s not forget the guest quarters, with a full bath, attached to the two-car garage. This is a bonus that is very attractive to buyers — whether you need extra space for visitors or a home office, it’s a great feature.
There’s a brokers open Jan. 31 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. if it’s still available!
