If you’ve been wondering what’s selling in Hollywood Heights THIS. IS. IT! We first came across 511 Clermont Street last week, and knew we had to feature it on our Friday Four Hundred. But we hit a minor snag – the three-bed, two-bath charmer flew off the market faster than we could say traditional Tudor!

“I have sold property in Hollywood Heights for 18 years and this is one of those special homes that appeals to so many,” says listing agent Britt Lopez of Dallas City Center Realtors. “We’ve had a ton of interest and a huge open house with over 45 people coming through last Sunday (Jan. 28). In fact, we had three offers within the first three days and are under contract!”

One look inside and you can see why. The 1920s Tudor with beautiful curb appeal and a unique stone exterior not only has, “all the updates done with modern convenience, but keeps the original feel of the home,” says Lopez. Well that, and the fact that Lopez priced the home right to sell from the very beginning. The home’s list price was $489,000.

Homes like this one in Hollywood Heights are perfect for first-time home buyers or empty-nesters she tells us. Aside from its idyllic location and gorgeous upgrades, the home is in an area that’s known for preserving historic homes, while fostering a tight-knit community spirit. It’s also located in the desirable Lakewood Elementary attendance zone — a bonus for families with young kids.

Over here at CandysDirt.com, we’ve fallen in love with the open layout, expert use of space, and custom touches that really make this house a home. Oh and the backyard is divine! The landscaped lawn and huge deck for entertaining = perfection.

If you’ve been on the hunt for Dallas homes under $500k, you might consider adding Hollywood Heights to your list. Britt Lopez has scoop on what’s happening now, and can help you find the needle-in-a-haystack property that’s right for you.
