There are only a handful of truly walkable neighborhoods in Dallas. Our Saturday Seven Hundred is an adorable Devonshire Tudor cottage at 5518 W. Amherst Avenue. Walk Score gives it a rating of 89 and it doesn’t get much better than that in Dallas! This highly coveted neighborhood is just across from Inwood Village, minutes from downtown Dallas, the Dallas North Tollway, and Love Field. Location, location, location! Imagine walking a block to see a movie, eat at any number of great restaurants, and shop until you drop. The neighborhood has every advantage of city living with none of the drawbacks, and a real sense of community.
It’s getting harder and harder to find these lovely original Tudor cottages, especially one that has been totally updated, so you’re in luck today! (more…)

As I drove down the street last week, my jaw dropped, and I grabbed the cell phone to call Dallas City Center Realtor Britt Lopez. I was stunned because this gorgeous, two-story Hollywood Heights Tudor at 522 Monte Vista has only had two owners since I moved here 27 years ago. It was both sad and exciting to see the “Coming Soon” sign — sad to lose great neighbors, but so exciting to see what the present owners have done to this 1934 beauty.
With the fervor for tearing down classic homes in the Park Cities right now, it was refreshing to find our Inwood House of the Week, a charming University Park Tudor not only intact, but also lovingly restored. What was even more refreshing was sitting down with the talented woman that saw the potential in 4111 San Carlos Street, and hearing her story.
It’s not often I come across a home where it’s hard to find enough superlatives to create a worthy description. Even the photographs of this Mediterranean villa, as gorgeous as they are, cannot begin to showcase the depth of beauty of this estate.

Let’s take a look at a perfect example of an off-market sale.
Very few homes stand the test of time. Our Inwood National Bank House of the Week is an incredibly chic modern colonial that looks as if it was renovated last year, not in 1996. It takes skill, knowledge, dedication, and talent to ensure a home does not become dated, and we’ve never seen a better example than 3802 Shenandoah Street in the heart of Highland Park.
