This week’s Friday Five Hundred is all about location, location, location! We found an adorable 1950s ranch just minutes from the Plaza at Preston Center on beautiful 6110 Del Norte Lane listed at $599,000. Although it’s at the top of our threshold for homes ranging from $500,000 to $599,000, we think it’s worth a look.

To love a bungalow in North Oak Cliff‘s Winnetka Heights Historic Conservation District is to accept imperfections. But not every bungalow requires a full-on restoration, and not every homeowner is up to the task. 

This home at 315 N. Clinton, says listing agent Ged Dipprey, was a whole different ball of wax. When it was purchased, the front porch had been enclosed and made into an additional living area. But for the seller, that just wouldn’t do.

“Restored to original splendor at great expense, the expansive front porch boasts pine flooring and reestablishes the integrity of the Craftsman form,” Dipprey said, adding that the home now fits better into the fabric of the neighborhood. Sure, it sacrificed some square footage, but to those who love Arts & Crafts architecture, it’s totally worth it.

From the curb, it’s absolutely perfect. Inside, it only gets better.

Just like the impulse to nibble on a baby’s cheeks, I feel an uncontrollable urge to take a bite out of this adorable Greenland Hills Tudor. With the adorable roofline, arched stained-glass windows, scalloped awning, and precious pea green front door, how could you not love this brick and stone classic cottage at 5206 Merrimac?

Adding more single-family housing in downtown Dallas has definitely increased the vibrancy of our urban core, as the once desolate city center now has more full-time families and businesses. The days of downtown turning into a ghost town at 5 p.m. could be over. 

If you want an urban lifestyle but don’t want to live in a high-rise, a townhome is the perfect compromise. Lucky for you, the Farmers Market area on the southeast side of downtown Dallas has a great inventory of relatively new builds, including this stunning unit listed by Sam Sawyer of The Collective Residential.

The sky’s the limit when it comes to prices for close-in, predominantly single-family neighborhoods in East Dallas. Those with historic overlays — Vickery Place, Munger Place, Junius Heights, and so on — seem to have appreciated at a breakneck pace, as bungalows and prairie-style homes built in the 1920s get a good freshening up. Today’s Friday Five Hundred is one such example. 

This adorable three-bedroom, two-bathroom Craftsman bungalow in Vickery Place has received a top-to-bottom update that makes use of several design trends while still keeping it between the ditches of historic vernacular. And there’s a bonus — the home comes with a detached converted garage that is a studio apartment with income potential.

As an East Dallas dweller, I’ve always loved Casa Linda Estates. It’s a neighborhood full of great houses — from one-story stone cottages to more ornate Spanish-style homes — the diversity in architecture, huge lots, and friendly people make it a fun place to live. Truly, there’s only one gripe I have about this place, and that’s the complete lack of sidewalks. It makes it somewhat challenging for families who have little ones who enjoy walking to Casa Linda Park, which is a popular place for neighbors to gather.

Other than that, this is a splendid enclave, full of mature trees and well-maintained homes. This particular house at 9711 Redondo Dr. is a perfect example, and if the owners weren’t expecting a third child, they wouldn’t be selling this adorable three-bedroom, two-bath stone cottage. But they’re not going far, as they’re planning to build their dream house on San Saba, right next to Casa Linda Park, making the jaunts to the playground with three little ones easier than ever.
