Devonshire Tudor cottage 5518 W. Amherst 2
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…)

It’s hard to believe a property like this still exists only minutes from downtown Dallas.
