Debbie Sherrington with Dave Perry-Miller Park Cities has listed 5103 Bradford Drive for $468,000.

With so many original details and thoughtful updates for modern-day, this 1940s cottage is all you need to get in the spirit this holiday season. And we could not be more excited to share it! The three-bedroom, two-full-bath charmer is the ultimate Friday Four Hundred, offering picturesque drive-up and an ideal location in the Medical District area. Take a closer look, but beware, this cottage cutie is hard to resist.

From its sizable 7,797-square-foot lot with mature magnolia trees, to its cherry red door, towering chimney, and front porch pergola, we are finding it hard to peel our eyes away from this timeless beauty.

“The house is perfect for someone who needs to be close to the Medical District, Downtown, Uptown, Design District, or Love Field,” says listing agent Debbie Sherrington of Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate Park Cities. “The size is right for many buyer types because of the two living areas, open floor plan, and great backyard. It has all the cottage charm with updates based on modern living needs.”

Hamptons International Sales, Docking has listed Holmbury St. Mary, Nr Dorking, Surrey, RH5 for £650,000.

This time of year we love curling up to watch the classic Nancy Meyers rom-com ‘The Holiday’. And today we are excited to announce the cottage which inspired the movie set is up for sale! The three-bedroom, one-full-and-one-half-bathroom house is listed by Hamptons International Sales, Dorking for £650,000 – which translates to approximately $816,511.15 U.S. dollars.

According to House & Garden: 

“The Rosehill Cottage of the film doesn’t exist in reality – the exteriors were built from scratch in a field and the interiors are sets – Honeysuckle Cottage in Holmbury St. Mary provided inspiration for the crew who designed it. The cottage is the home of Kate Winslet’s character, who conducts a home swap with Cameron Diaz’s LA mogul, and thus provides the setting for Diaz to fall in love with the dreamy Jude Law amidst her comedy dealings with the English countryside.”

Our Splurge: Lauren Meader of Far West Texas Realty has listed 208 E San Antonio Street in Marfa for $1,500,000.

Marfa – to know it, is to love it. And there’s so much more to this tiny West Texas town than its famous Prada installation. This week, we showcase two incredible Marfa properties in our latest Splurge vs. Steal, each with stand-out architecture and cozy interiors, but with price points that are miles apart. Ever consider going off the grid? On the hunt for a place with a hip, artsy, down-home kind of vibe? Perhaps Marfa is for you.

You may recognize this head-turner from its debut in the August 2015 issue of Interior Design magazine, or from the time it graced the pages of the June 2016 issue of Architectural Digest. It’s a showstopper on a 0.29-acre lot that is just begging to be scooped up! (more…)

Greenwich

Boxwood garden fans take note, this Instagram worthy estate is all the inspiration you need! We love Greenwich, Connecticut, with its serene country escapes and in-town gems. So this week, we decided to up the ante and see how far $10 million would go in the Fairfield County oasis. Our search led us to the 1930s English Manor nestled at 32 Vineyard Lane. Currently listed by Leslie McElwreath of Sotheby’s International Realty Greenwich for $9.750 million, it is exactly the kind of home to brighten up even the most discerning real estate buff’s day.

Our Splurge: Tessa Mosteller with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty has listed 4201 Emerson Avenue for $789,000.

For some, living in the Park Cities is something to aspire to, and we are centering on two of its gems. Enter University Park, a quintessential American neighborhood that makes us feel right home. With lush parks, sports fields, upscale shops, and exemplary Highland Park ISD schools that rank among the best in the country, this is where it’s at in Dallas! However, many buyers find themselves in a state of sticker shock when searching for their University Park home.

Fret no more! This week’s Splurge vs. Steal will put you at ease. Today, we zero in on two exceptional University Park condos, each on Emerson Avenue, and offering gorgeous interiors, but with price points that are miles apart. Which would you choose?
