Charming Tudor on Mistletoe Drive Could Be Ho-Ho-Home

mistletoeOur Saturday Six Hundred for this week was an obvious choice — and not just because it happens to sit on Mistletoe Drive in historic Hollywood Heights-Santa Monica neighborhood.

It’s also because it’s a charming Tudor that has only been on the market two times in its history — which is remarkable because it was built in 1935. It’s also a home that could be a really great property if someone with the right vision came in.

First, the positives of this home — beautiful hardwoods throughout, original features like beams, wooden ceilings, light fixtures, and a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace make this home at 6919 Mistletoe Dr. a home filled with character. Many of the windows, in fact, still possess their original hand-blown glass.

Does the kitchen need some updating and perhaps a new layout? Of course. But this two-bedroom, one-bath home has so much potential, from the inviting front porch and cute fence, to the covered porch on the back of the home. Even the floor plan is perfect for entertaining, with an easy flow from the living room to the dining room.


It sits on more than a third of an acre, making the potential for a remodel or even an addition completely feasible.

“The extraordinary lot is filled with mature trees and 360-degree views making for a rare remodel-build opportunity,” said listing agent Blair Hudson with Allie Beth Allman & Associates. “It’s capable of being THE premier property in East Dallas … it’s just waiting to be loved back to life.”

And even better, it’s in the coveted Lakewood Elementary zone, and Woodrow Wilson High feeder pattern.

This home on Mistletoe Drive is listed for $650,000, and you can see it this weekend — there’s an open house Sunday, Dec. 16 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
