It speaks volumes about the state of my own home that I’m deeply attracted to property with killer outdoor living spaces. This post-war traditional in the heart of Midway Hollow may not be much to look at from the front, but just wait for it, folks. The backyard is everything.  And I’m going to make you wait until after the jump for it. You won’t even be mad, it’s just that good. With three bedrooms and two bathrooms, 3939 Van Ness Lane is listed by Justin Farmer with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty at $615,000.

If you’ve visited the Knox-Henderson area and driven west toward Highland Park, you’ve most likely seen the Abbott Terrace Condominiums. This cute white brick building has a retro appeal and pretty landscaping. If you’ve wondered about what they’re like inside, our Tuesday Two Hundred is your chance to take a look. 

Apartment 21 at 4508 Abbott Ave. just hit the market June 29. Walking distance to all the shops and restaurants on Knox Street, it’s also a stone’s throw from Turtle Creek. The location is fantastic. Which is why the price point makes it so attractive. A Highland Park address for well under $300K? Yep. And it’s updated, too.

“This house is like a temple.”

We’re standing in the open living area of 6832 Westlake Avenue and Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s Realtor Scott Carlson makes a sweeping gesture upward. He’s not wrong. This immaculate renovation is temple-like. In the morning sun, the space absolutely glows. Light filters in from the home’s abundant transoms and bounces off of the sleek marble counters and white custom cabinetry and there is a sort of reverence about it all. The tour is over and I remain reluctant to depart.

“You never want to leave this place,” Carlson says, as if he’s reading my mind. Or, perhaps, my body language is just that obvious.
