Splurge vs. Steal: Two Houses on the Same Street in Hollywood Heights | CandysDirt.com

Our “splurge” at 823 Clermont St. features a backyard oasis with covered patio and swimming pool.

Splurge vs, Steal is a new feature on CandysDirt.com. Every week, we look at two properties that offer something in common, but are miles apart in their asking price.  

As a protected conservation district, Hollywood Heights offers big personality and preserved architectural gems, many from before WWII. This vibrant East Dallas neighborhood is a friendly community of just over 930 homes with close proximity to White Rock Lake and access to the highly rated Lakewood Elementary, appealing to young families.  

Today, we’ve found two homes located just a block and a half apart in Hollywood Heights on Clermont Street. Built six years apart — 1930 and 1936 — they sit on a street lined with mature trees. Both are family homes, with three bedrooms, and a short walk to Samuell Grand Park.

M Streets Tudor Sees Remarkable Transformation | CandysDirt.com

I’ve fallen head over heels for a 1928 M Streets Tudor, and I know you will, too.

Located at 5350 Monticello Ave. in the coveted Greenland Hills neighborhood, this stunner was taken to the studs for a whole-house renovation that reimagined every space and expanded the footprint to five bedrooms, four bathrooms, two living areas, and 3,497 square feet on two stories.

“This house has all the charm and character of an old home—something that can’t be re-created with new construction—plus the functionality and amenities of new construction,” said Minnette Murray with Minnette Murray Properties, who is representing the property. “I love the 9-foot ceilings throughout, custom finishes, the perfect floorplan, and outdoor living options. This is an amazing house.”

The renovations were designed by renowned Dallas architectural firm Stocker Hoesterey Montenegro, and the quality shows through in high-end finish outs and details everywhere.

One of the challenges of older homes is a lack of space and too few bathrooms. This house solves all that with remarkable style and era-appropriate updates. I can’t wait to show it to you.

North Stonewall Terrace

We’ve found a completely adorable, carefully renovated East Dallas Tudor for our Thursday Three Hundred and you’re going to be inspired.

Located at 5814 Palm Ln. in North Stonewall Terrace near East Mockingbird Lane and Greenville Avenue, this cottage has all the personality and character of a Tudor built in 1945. But it also has myriad updates making it more functional, safe, and energy efficient. Think all new electrical, new attic furnace, new water heater, new low-E windows, and new plumbing in the kitchen and bathroom.

“The seller is a designer and when she bought the home, it was not in tip top shape but she had a vision,” said listing agent Brittney Warren with Roger Healy and Associates. “She’s put her hands on everything in the home, done it with care, and you can tell.”

This home has two bedrooms, one bathroom, and 1,470 square feet on one story. Bonus: it’s in the Stonewall Jackson Elementary attendance zone, which earns a “10” out of 10 from greatschools.org.

This Beckley Club Estates limestone Tudor at 1610 Seevers Ave. is a three-bedroom, one-bathroom home with 1,740 square feet, built in 1928. It features reclaimed 1920’s subway tile in the bathroom, a vintage O’Keefe & Merritt gas range in the kitchen, original oak hardwoods throughout, and shiplap wall accents. Absolutely darling!

It was listed June 24 by Reggie Walker with Keller Williams Urban Dallas for $235,000.
