We’ve found a gem of a property priced at $549,900 that’s just a five-minute Uber ride to Lower Greenville and Deep Ellum, and a mere 10 minutes to downtown, Lakewood, and White Rock Lake!

One of Old East Dallas’ most charming aspects is the plethora of huge front porches that offer a shady spot to get to know your neighbors. So what better way to introduce yourself to the wonderful people and festive atmosphere of Peak’s Suburban Addition than its PorchFest celebration.

This year, the second annual Dallas PorchFest on Oct. 7 will coincide with the grand re-opening of Buckner Park. This city park, which straddles Munger Boulevard and runs aside the Santa Fe Trail, received a $3 million city-financed revitalization. You can attend the ribbon-cutting ceremony at Buckner Park (4550 Worth St.) at noon, and then walk through the neighborhood of Peak’s Addition to enjoy music, art, and food until 8 p.m.

“This is a block party for our Old East Dallas neighborhood,” said one of the event organizers, Leigh Martin. “And the whole city is invited.”
