Elsby Avenue takes center stage in our latest Splurge vs. Steal! This week we put the spotlight on two historic offerings you have to see to believe. Both sit on one of Brairwood’s most iconic streets and have all the charm and upgrades one could ask for. Add to that a prime location near Lover’s Lane shops and cafes, plus easy access downtown Dallas, and you have the recipe for real estate gold.

The only question is which will you choose? The Ivy Cottage Splurge or the Tasteful Traditional Steal? The choice is more difficult than you think.

Michelle Blackburn of Dave Perry-Miller has listed 4734 Elsby Ave for $589,900.

Who doesn’t love a house with a red door? That’s how agent Michelle Blackburn of Dave Perry-Miller Preston Center pitched us this Briarwood beauty through our new Facebook forum, “Getting The Dirt.” Blackburn says the three-bedroom, two-bathroom charmer is “cozy and ready for all stages of life…for a buyer that is beginning their homeownership experience or a downsizing, low maintenance buyer ready to simplify!”
