506 Valencia Street, Dallas, Texas is listed by David Bush with David Bush Realtors for $525,000.

It’s Tudor time! This Hollywood Heights Tudor hits all the high notes for us. Nestled in the sought after Lakewood area it affords an updated interior, three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and is what listing agent David Bush calls “the quintessential Hollywood Heights 1928 Tudor, complete with all the charm one looks for in this delightful and sought after neighborhood.” With a price tag of $525,000, we are certain this week’s Friday Five Hundred won’t be on the market long. Here are 10 reasons why.

This is one of those Dallas homes worth dropping your fingernail file for. In fact, 1905 Old Orchard is worth dropping about 1,000.

Are we in Pebble Beach? We are right here in Dallas, but in Stevens Park Estates, one of the best neighborhoods in town that has always been a bit of a secret. A good secret where neighbors live, work, and play just minutes away from Bishop Arts District, downtown Dallas, and Uptown.

First of all, it is a very close-knit community: some neighborhood associations have meetings, Stevens Park has “First Friday” happy hours. There is a “toddler park” for kiddos and an annual Easter Egg hunt that has evolved into a full-fledged party over the years. Forget Swiss Avenue, there are more Halloween trick-or-treaters (and better treats) in this area than any ‘hood south of I-30. If you borrow an egg from a neighbor, that egg will be freshly hatched from a backyard chicken. Everyone knows everyone’s pets and kids and in the most iconic blend of artists and intellectuals, the kids roam, playing freely from house to house until it’s time for bed. I have even heard of summertime camp-outs under the stars, reading and bridge groups in this ‘hood. And if you or someone in your family likes golf, well swing the clubs across the street at the Stevens Park Golf Course or ride your bike or take a run along the paved trail.

Life is very, very good in Stevens Park Estates.  (more…)

Its’ tricky to pull off a build that looks like it fits into an established neighborhood but that’s exactly what architect Guy Vance Brown did with 6832 Avalon Ave. David Bush has the $1.7 million listing and is calling this four-bedroom, three-full- and-one-half-bath home an “Alpine Tudor.” We think that’s an apt moniker for the just-listed Lakewood lovely. It’s like a cross between a Swiss chalet and grandma’s cottage in the woods, if grandma is Lynn Wyatt. Brick has been used judiciously to enhance rather than overpower the 4,241-square-foot home. The front balcony seals the deal on exterior charm. Can’t you just imagine waving to the neighbors at sunset, cocktail in hand?

Faubion House 2

Caitlin and Tyler Faubion fell in love with the potential inside their Hollywood Heights Tudor on Patricia. Right when they walked in the front door they could imagine open spaces, a lovely updated kitchen, and a sunroom that brought in the beauty of the outdoors.

There are so many wonderful touches in this home that make it feel absolutely classic, like those mahogany French doors and windows hewn by a close relative of the Faubions, as well as the subtly elegant details like crystal chandeliers and perfectly refinished hardwood floors. And while this home clocks in at about 1,260 square feet, the openness that allows you to easily navigate the common areas of the house make it feel much larger.

This will definitely be a popular property on this year’s Hollywood Santa Monica Neighborhood Association Home Tour, so don’t wait to buy your tickets and show your support of this active historic conservation district in East Dallas! You can purchase your tickets to the April 25-26 home tour online, as well as register for the silent auction on April 24 hosted by the Dallas Arboretum.
