Alex Prins with Coldwell Banker has listed 5509 Alton Avenue and 5511 Alton Avenue for $529,000 each, respectively.

These brother units in Old East Dallas shine, thanks to pioneering agent-turned-investor Alex Prins. Yes, it’s a two-fer, folks! This week’s Friday Five Hundred features two spectacular units in Old East Dallas. Both were finished, staged, and put up for sale by none other than the energetic and award-winning Alex Prins.

“Hey! Omg! They are finally done!” said the Coldwell Banker agent upon completion of his project at 5509 and 5511 Alton Avenue. “We feel like pioneers in this little pocket between Beacon Street and Munger Blvd. There is only one pre-existing new construction project in the area and one currently breaking ground. So we are excited to work this up-and-coming area near Santa Fe Trail and Woodrow Wilson High School early on.”

When Svetlana Grujic of Compass alerted us to this beautiful bargain in Dallas’ hot East Village, we couldn’t wait to share it!

“This is the last Conrad home in the low $500K range,” she says. “Everything else they are building is $650-plus just down the street.” And Svetlana is right. She tells us that 90 percent of the lots on Manett Street are new construction that will be completed by the end of the year, and all of them are in high $600,000 range.

So what makes this one special or unique?

Svetlana says, “No HOA and a big yard are a rare find in Uptown or East Village. The location makes land too expensive for single-family homes. But this one has it all – location, no HOA, open floor plan, only two stories, big yard for pets or a hot tub, and room for grilling or chilling.”

Sometimes even the big city folk want to roll up their jeans and go fishing in the backyard pond – as long as they can return to a traditional home with luxurious amenities in close proximity to shops and restaurants.

Are there actually fish in the pond? Maybe not.

Does it really matter? Definitely not. You’d have your own pond – and there’s no homeowners association to tell you what you can do with it.

You had me at theater room.

It’s one of those perks, like a Jacuzzi tub or an elevator — maybe you don’t really need it; maybe you’ll never use it, but it sure is cool.

And one-touch electric shades in the master bedroom, wood-look tile floors, double ovens, and a central vacuum system sweeten the deal on this posh pad at 1210 Winton Drive in Allen.

This Friday Five Hundred selection is a four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom contemporary home surrounded by walking trails, a nature preserve, and what’s that? Just a little peace and tranquility.
