Amy: Our Friday Four Hundred is a big hit each week! As we look back on all the fantastic homes, one Friday Four Hundred stood out above the rest. And with nearly one hundred likes and shares, our fans agree, this modernized Tudor is tops! Read on to find out why.
This is a head-turner, folks! We are talking archways, penny tile, and exposed brick. Floating shelves in the kitchen and a backyard oasis that will have you throwing parties all year long. In fact, there is so much to love and so little time, we will get right to it. It’s a Friday Four Hundred you can’t afford to miss!
Hollywood Heights Tudor Goes Modern
“It is one of the only homes in Hollywood that is a blend of naturalist minimalist with a Tudor flare,” says listing agent, Cliff Kessler with Allie Beth Allman and Associates. “The arched interior wall openings and original Tudor accents make it special.”
And the two-bedroom, two-bathroom beauty sits in a fantastic location. It’s close to Lindsley Park and the Santa Fe Trail! But what really makes it stand out are the gorgeous architectural accents and curated interiors.
“You can see all the details on the exterior brick, on the chimney treatments, on the roofline with gables on one side,” says Kessler. “The home was updated with an open kitchen with free-standing shelves, and there are fully renovated bathrooms keeping the hexagon tile to fit in with the original time period.”
Stunning Original Details Throughout
Purists will appreciate the original hardwoods, while those with an eye for drama will marvel at the custom lighting. In fact, there is original brick too! Kessler tells us the back bedroom was added after the home was built and incorporates the home’s original brick inside.
Plus, A Garage Band Room For The Kids
The Hollywood Heights Tudor comes Cat-5 wired and has a bonus storage room above the garage. Kessler reveals: “The home has an attached garage with a workshop space and room above the garage that the kids use for a band room.” School of Rock meet your match!
A Pinterest-Worthy Kitchen
Of course, we love the new subway tile in the kitchen and its muted green cabinetry. Even the original gas fireplace in the nearby living area gets a facelift with glass rocks for a modern look. However, it’s the welcoming outdoor spaces that truly seal the deal.

The outdoor living comes complete with a Bocce Ball court, alfresco dining area, plus a custom fire pit. And the built-in tree fort is exactly what every little kid needs. This is a home where memories are made!
“It’s also a golfers dream to be next to the Tenison course,” Kessler adds. “Besides all of those great things, it is, I believe, the lowest price-per-square-foot, three-bed in Hollywood Heights currently, that isn’t a fixer. Great value for someone moving into the neighborhood.”
Other highlights are a new roof and gutters installed in 2018 and all new landscaping. The neutral color palette creates a warm and inviting feel, while the versatile layout means you can customize the home to suit your needs. This includes that third bedroom which is currently used as a secondary living area.
