Share News:

Whether your budget is big or small we have the Hollywood-Santa Monica homes for you. And just in time for Thanksgiving! Which would you rather spend time in for a Thanksgiving feast: the Stunning Tudor Splurge or the Budget Bungalow Steal? There is no wrong answer here. 

Splurge: Perfect Hollywood Heights Home For The Holidays For $650K

When Svetlana Grujic with Compass brought this Tudor to our attention, we knew it would turn your head, too! And the three-bedroom, two-full-bathroom Tudor has everything you need to celebrate Turkey Day in style!

Built For Celebrating

“It’s perfect for holidays — open floor plan, ideal for entertaining, and the living area has simple and understated stained glass windows that are such a great conversation starter,” says Grujic. “It’s a classic Tudor with all of the character outside with a minimalist fireplace inside. It shows how old and new are fabulous together.”

A Show-Stopping Kitchen

There is nothing average about this Hollywood Heights kitchen! It is giving us life with that gorgeous blue color.

Grujic tells us, “The kitchen features glass-front painted cabinets, black marble countertops, and white glazed tile backsplash. It is open to the living area so that you can cook and watch the Macy’s parade or football and not feel disconnected from the rest of the family.” So much yes!

One-Of-A-Kind Master

Now we have to admit, we have seen a lot of showers. But this one is truly unique.

“Show off the master shower to friends and family and confidently claim that it is one-of-a-kind in Dallas,” recommends Grujic. “I spent endless hours trying to come up with the most unique design that would wow – even in Hollywood Heights.”

Flawless Staging That Inspires

Also Grujic tells us she spent endless hours collecting staging accents that would showcase the most stylish lifestyle the new owners could enjoy. And her attention-to-detail shows.

She adds, “This home is a great buy for a young family with small kids that will need Lakewood elementary. And the back of the house is perfect for a kid’s retreat. It’s also great for a young family without kids that needs an extra 300 square feet of art studio, workout space or office space. The best part is that new owners will have not just bragging rights but also a whole year of craftsmanship warranty to show how much we believe in our product!”

Svetlana Grujic with Compass has listed 411 Monte Vista Drive for $650,000.

Steal: Budget Bungalow With Upscale Look And Feel For $409.5K

Now you can’t go wrong with our Splurge, but this Steal is just as cute! And it packs a punch for the price! For over $200,000 less, the two-bedroom, one-full-bathroom bungalow shines with recent renovations and historic charm.

“This home is perfect for intimate family gatherings while offering a great bonus living room/den, when you need a breather from all the cooking and conversation,” says listing agent Peter Loudis with Ebby Halliday.

Modern Elegance Abounds In This Hollywood House

Here elegant touches abound! This includes gorgeous hardwood floors and an updated kitchen with stainless and granite. Open shelving, a subway tile backsplash, and tons of natural light make this a great space to cook a meal!

Stunning Sunroom Dining

But the real show-stopper here is the gracious sunroom/dining room/den! It features a wall of windows bringing the outdoors in, plus a bunch of built-ins that could serve as a buffet. We love the wide wood-paneled ceiling and heavily treed views. You could really put your stamp on this and make it a space to wow your holiday guests!

Loudis adds, “The den off the dining room is open and bright with a wall of windows that overlooks the backyard, allowing you to easily accommodate a larger get-together. Just pop in that extra leaf and you’re set. Or if you want an area that is insulated from cheering football fans and recipe rivalry, close the double barn doors and relax in peace.”

Classic Honeycomb Bathroom

Who doesn’t love a classic honeycomb tile on the bathroom floor? The look is historic but very of the moment. The bath also features modern mirrors, a dual sink vanity, subway tile shower, and soft close drawers. And according to the listing, there is also a “bonus room with built-in wardrobe that could function as a 3rd bed, office, study, or second living room.”

Family-Friendly Appeal

Families will appreciate that the home is zoned for Lakewood Elementary and close to Downtown, White Rock Lake, golf, and parks.

In addition, Loudis tells us, “The current owner did have plans drawn up for an addition to give the master bedroom a walk-in closet, as well as an ensuite bath. The seller doesn’t plan on doing the work at this time. However, a new homeowner would just need to select their contractor and submit the plans created to add some instant equity.”

Peter Loudis with Ebby Halliday Lakewood has listed 1022 Cordova Street for $409,500.
