The upscale neighborhood of Greenway Park is a favorite of many with its proximity to the Park Cities, community amenities, and great restaurants and shopping. It is bounded by the Dallas North Tollway on the east, Mockingbird Lane on the south, Inwood Road on the west, and University Boulevard on the north.
For today’s Splurge vs Steal, we are looking at two lovely homes in Greenway Park. Which one is your favorite?
SPLURGE: NEWER HOUSE WITH OVER 4,000 BEAUTIFUL SQUARE FEET
We love the Greenway Crest house at 5532 Druid Ln. with all its special features and beautiful curb appeal. This home has three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, three half baths, and 4,030 square feet on two stories, built in 2007.
The dramatic entryway has a graceful, curving staircase and a home office with French doors. The first living area has a carved fireplace surround and a wet bar with wine cooler. A huge sunroom also has a fireplace and three sets of sliding glass doors opening onto a shady backyard with a heated saltwater pool and hot tub. The downstairs master offers a lovely ensuite bathroom with frameless glass shower and jetted tub. The kitchen has a butler’s pantry, exotic granite countertops, six-burner gas stove, double ovens, built-in refrigerator, and tons of cabinets.
