Hibernia 1 extThere is huge hope for historic homes in Dallas!

First of all, it is seldom if ever that one of these historic State-Thomas Victorians comes on the market. For five of them IN A ROW to be available is highly unusual! They are owned by various very bright owners who hung on during thick and thin. And now buyers cannot seem to get them fast enough!

They are original Victorian two story cottages circa 1890-1930, used as commercial office spaces (hence the photos of the not-so-pretty, real-live-workspaces) but can easily be converted back to real comfy homes, as you can see from the one gussied up here at 2711 Hibernia. The land is just about .16 of an acre, enough for a yard and even a koi pond in one, and the interior square footage ranges from 1300 to 2300 square feet.

“These homes are a joint marketing alliance with our good friend Jack Gosnell, the top retail/commercial broker in Uptown,” says Kyle Crews, who is marketing the properties along with his team, Robin Brock and Mary Alice Garrison. “Jack was instrumental in early days of establishing Uptown as a live-work neighborhood. And he now reps Crescent with the retail leasing of McKinney &Olive.”

4100 Travis 8 Front

You’ve probably seen these townhomes before, which are remarkable thanks to their interesting curved metal roof. From the outside, you’d probably expect all of these units to feature some kind of contemporary decor inside, maybe lots of black leather and low-slung couches, with glass-topped tables and colorful modern art.

You’ll be pleasantly surprised to see unit No. 8 at 4100 Travis Street, a gorgeous end unit with museum-quality finishes that feels warm and inviting inside. It’s full of antiques and plush furnishings, showing that while the exterior of this building may be modern/contemporary, the possibilities inside are endless.
