Hollywood Heights is always a good idea. Especially when it comes to real estate. With historic neighborhood charms, close proximity to White Rock Lake, and access to desirable Lakewood Elementary, Hollywood Heights is the epitome of exceptional Dallas living – and it’s a great value to boot!
In this week’s Splurge vs. Steal, we zero in on two fantastic Tudors, each with prime locations and impressive architecture but price points that are miles apart. Which would you choose?
Splurge: Historic J.B. Salmon Tudor Blocks From Lakewood Country Club For $659K
This three-bedroom, three-full-bathroom family home is situated in the heart of historic Hollywood Heights and affords all the classic touches we love in a Tudor. In fact, it was built by the founder of Hollywood Heights, J. B. Salmon, for his daughter Margaret O’Rourke.
According to the listing “Original hardwoods, high ceilings, and abundance of windows create an open and airy feel.” We love the elegant archways, updated kitchen, and fabulous home office with built-in bookcases and handy dandy ladder on rails. The main floor master suite is spacious and well-appointed, and there are plenty of versatile rooms to make your own.
A fenced lawn with mature trees and expansive deck with retractable awning create a private outdoor oasis that will have you hosting summer cookouts in no time.

Steal: Classic Tudor On Prime Block In Hollywood Heights For $569K
For nearly $100,000 less, you could post up in this head-turning Tudor on what the listing calls, “one of the most beautiful streets in Hollywood Heights.”
The two-bedroom, two-full-bathroom home provides a gracious 1,980-square-foot interior, filled with historic charm. An original tile floor wows in the foyer, while a dramatic stone fireplace, crown moldings, and hand-scraped hardwoods delight from room to room. We can’t take our eyes off that gorgeous kitchen with Wolf range, open shelving, and plenty of natural light.
The secondary living space is also a looker with a wall of shelving and additional fireplace. French doors take you outside to the secluded and serene back lawn. It comes lushly landscaped with a two-car-garage and bonus two-car-carport! A tranquil pond is just off the master for the ultimate in relaxation.
