Splurge: Anita Street Splurge With Tudor Charm For $549K

If you’re in the market for timeless Tudor, our splurge is it! The three-bedroom, two-bathroom beauty is gracious and refined. From the stone-clad exterior to the elegant entry and open floor plan there’s lots to love in one fantastic package.

There is a coved ceiling accent and stone fireplace in the living, plus plantation shutters streaming tons of light. Nearby, a fully equipped chef’s kitchen is warm and inviting with dining area, ample cabinetry, breakfast bar, and stainless appliances to whip up your favorite meal. The bedrooms are sizable, including the master which has its own bath with jetted tub and giant walk-in closet.

There is even a huge backyard and private patio to enjoy summer in style. Do you have small kids you want to get into the highly rated Mockingbird Elementary? This Tudor is zoned for that too!

See why listing agent Shirley Cohn calls this “a must-see” and set up a showing.

Shirley Cohn with Allie Beth Allman & Associates has listed 5706 Anita Street for $549,000.

Steal: Morningside Steal With All The Upgrades For $489K

Over on Morningside Drive, the options are equally impressive. Our steal has a lot to love, including rare architecture. Just ask listing agent Izabela Florence who says, “They don’t build homes like this anymore!”

Indeed, they don’t, which is why this charmer is such a find. Step inside from the inviting walk-up to a gracious living space built for entertaining. It features a wide wall of windows, fabulous built-ins, and a stately brick hearth. The wood floors are gorgeous! And then comes the kitchen.

What a looker with a retro vibe, but modern hardware and newer appliances for cooking with ease. Generously proportioned bedrooms add to the appeal. In the master, you’ll have plenty of room for a sitting area or your Peloton bike. And the guest rooms are a kiddo’s dream!

Grassy lawn for play and a two-car garage round out this fantastic steal!

Izabela Florence with Allie Beth Allman & Associates has listed 5839 Morningside Avenue for $489,000.
