The M Streets are popular — it’s not unusual to see homes in the area snapped up quicker than they can get listed. And while its proximity to Lower Greenville is part of its selling point, we posit that the other selling point is its neighborhood school — Mockingbird Elementary.
What do parents love about Mockingbird? When we asked, the diversity was mentioned a lot. The school’s commitment to the hearing-impaired community through its partnership with the Dallas Regional School for the Deaf is also often brought up as well. All of that contributes to what many feel to be a terrific campus culture that culminates in the school’s motto, “Friendship.”
And many parents and alumni will also mention the school’s garden, which has morphed from its more humble beginnings in 1996 to a 20,000 square foot outdoor science lab complete with gardens, wildscape, greenhouse, pond, and more.
The school received an A grade this year from the Texas Education Agency, and earned six out of six possible distinctions.
What can you find in Mockingbird’s footprint? We found this adorable two-bedroom, one-bath home at 5422 Morningside Avenue that is full of bright, charming finish choices and feels much larger than you’d think thanks to a clever floorplan, hardwood floors, and fresh paint.
A large eat-in kitchen boasts granite countertops, a glass tile backsplash, and stainless steel appliances. Two living areas seamlessly connect to each other, providing plenty of room for entertaining.
Both bedrooms are generous and have plenty of closet space.
And best of all, you can check it out for yourself this weekend — there’s an open house from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. this Sunday.
The home is priced at $458,000, and is listed by Heather Guild with the Heather Guild Group and Compass.
