George Lanier with Land Here Realty has listed 3612 Herschel Avenue for $525,000. Open House, this Saturday, from 1 to 4 p.m.

Built in 1927 yet beautifully restored for modern-day, this Bungalow brings the drama and low maintenance living to North Oak Lawn. It’s also a rare find for the area.

“This is one of the very few last standing single family homes surrounded by townhouses, condos, and apartments in the North Oak Lawn area,” says listing agent George Lanier with Land Here Realty. “There are so many unique features about this home. Though it was built in 1927, it has smart home technology, such as a Nest thermostat and Green Air UV purification for the HVAC.”

“This home is on the best block in the neighborhood,” says listing agent, Justin Farmer with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty.“You can walk to Starbucks, the grocery store, and donut shop without ever crossing a major street!”

And the Caruth Terrace gem has all the bells and whistles. We are talking a huge fenced backyard, light and bright interiors, and plenty of room to host a crowd.

Best Craftsman Evaaah! That’s how Ged Dipprey brought this Winnetka Heights gem to our attention. And the Dave Perry-Miller agent is right. This three-bedroom, two-full-bathroom listing is the perfect Friday Five Hundred, offering an exceptional location and high design at a reasonable price.

“Frankly, this house is a gift listing,” says Dipprey. “Not to devalue my services, but let’s be real: Doesn’t this house sell itself? New everything and taken to the studs in 2015, I can’t think of a single design element that I don’t love!” 

Of course, the proof is in the pudding. And upon further inspection, we can see why Ged is so excited.

Our Friday Five Hundred is so hot, it received a contingent offer before we could publish this post! And we think it’s before-and-after photos are worth sharing. In fact, since Kylah Boyd with Texas Urban Living Realty listed 10621 Ferndale Road, it has garnered lots of attention.

The four-bedroom, three-bathroom, 2,700 square foot home with a pool, sits on a 0.24-acre lot in Lake Highlands, with an asking price of $560,000. But what really makes it special is its impressive remodel.  (more…)

Robert Irvin with Keller Williams Central has listed 5231 Goodwin Avenue for $525,000.

We have a thing for Tudors, and this one is no exception. Ideally nestled on Goodwin Avenue in coveted Vickery Place, rests a 1924-built brick Tudor so good you’ll want to call your real estate agent right away! Tudors, known for their sharp rooflines, arched windows and doors, and adorable floor plans, are great homes for cozy living!

Vibrant Locale

The Vickery Place Tudor offers a prime address on a quiet street, mere blocks from all the foodie and retail action. We’re not kidding. Living here means you’ll have Greenville Avenue shops and Knox-Henderson haunts just steps from your front door! But that’s not all this historic home affords.

Want the feel of a luxury home but at an entry-level price? This luxe Lower Greenville gem is just what the doctor ordered, literally.

The three-bedroom, two-full-and-one-half-bathroom home is zoned for top rated Mockingbird Elementary, previously Stonewall Jackson. Even better? It’s updated for modern luxury living, indoors and out.

Over $70K In Upgrades

According to listing agent Ivy Kessie with Rogers Healy and Associates, “The owners spent over $70,000 on the home since they purchased it four years ago, including brand new HVAC, roof, siding, garage doors, and more.”
