A little franken-tastic fun never hurt anyone. Experience Halloween like never before from this historic Hollywood Heights gem! It’s located minutes from the Santa Fe Trail, Lakewood Country Club, White Rock Lake, and puts you right in the middle of all the Halloween action.
In fact, Hollywood Heights resident Renee Strickland tells us:
“On Sunday afternoon, Hollywood Heights hosts the annual Spooktacular Halloween party in Lindsley Park, with a chili cook-off, cake walk, costume contests for kids and dogs, and fun games, like the severed head toss. On Halloween itself, we get a good number of trick-or-treaters because our houses are smaller and therefore closer together, which makes it easy for little legs. Probably about 350 to 500.”
Sounds like a howling good time to us! Let’s take a look inside and see why this bewitching beauty is the perfect Friday Four Hundred.
First off, with a list price of $415,000, you bet it has us intrigued. Built in 1937, the brick traditional nestled at 514 Blair Boulevard is chock full of original historic details, including gorgeous hardwood floors and double-hung windows, but it has also been tastefully updated for modern-day living.
“This is the best buy in Hollywood Heights! Endless potential at a list price of $415,000 in a neighborhood with homes selling for double that,” says listing agent Heather Van Curen of the Will Woods Team at Magnolia Realty. “This home was completely renovated in 2015, so there is new wiring, new plumbing, fresh paint, bathroom, and kitchen! You get the charm of the 1937 bungalow (in one of the best neighborhood in Dallas) with the benefits of newer construction. Perfect for anyone looking to be in this neighborhood, with room in the budget to make it your own.”
And how about that screened-in front porch! What better place to decorate on All Hallows Eve? It’s great for sitting ringside to watch the little ghosts and goblins trick-or-treat up and down the street.
Inside, you’ll find plenty of room for a ghoulish good time! The updated kitchen is outfitted with a deep farmhouse sink and granite counters, plus 42” cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and beautifully tiled wood-look floors.
We love the natural light that just pours throughout the house, and ample windows for draping those Halloween-themed cobwebs.
The spacious living area allows you to entertain without much fuss, and overall, the 1,291 square foot floor plan feels just right, not too big, not too tight.
Two bedrooms and one-full-bath make it great for first-time homebuyers or those just starting out, and for downsizers looking to get in on all the Halloween festivities with the grandkids!
There is even a bonus room in the attic that makes for an excellent kids retreat! It can also serve as a lovely home office or guest room. We just love the wood paneling and built-ins.
Outside, there is a great backyard to spend a boo-tiful Halloween night. Plus it has an inviting wood deck surrounded by old-growth Pecans – a great spot for hanging lanterns or string lights. Like what you see? Give agent Will Woods with Magnolia Realty a call.
Here’s witching you a Happy Howl-o-ween!
