Top Friday Four Hundred

A Home So Hot It Went Under Contract In Three Days!

Sometimes, it’s fun to look back and reminisce. Such is the case with this fantastic Hollywood Heights listing. Back in February I wrote: “If you’ve been wondering what’s selling in Hollywood Heights THIS. IS. IT! We first came across 511 Clermont Street last week, and knew we had to feature it on our Friday Four Hundred. But we hit a minor snag – the three-bed, two-bath charmer flew off the market faster than we could say traditional Tudor!” I guess you could say we have an eye for real estate. The home, as the title so implies, went under contract in just three days. You can read the full post here. (more…)

DeCarla Anderson of Dave Perry-Miller InTown has listed 902 N. Edgefield Avenue for $417,000.

Treat yourself to the joys of home ownership this season with a darling Craftsman in the heart of North Oak Cliff. Imagine the twinkling lights next year when this one is yours! The three-bedroom, two-bathroom charmer comes complete with 1,375 square feet on a lushly landscaped lot, and it even has a red door.

Lots Of Craftsman Charm

Looks like we are on a Craftsman kick this month, and our Friday Four Hundred is the epitome of Craftsman charm! Situated on a corner lot in the Kings Highway Conservation District, it affords a prime spot near Kessler Park. The front porch with classic swing caught our eye. And the interior is just as cute!

Debbie Sherrington with Dave Perry-Miller Park Cities has listed 5103 Bradford Drive for $468,000.

With so many original details and thoughtful updates for modern-day, this 1940s cottage is all you need to get in the spirit this holiday season. And we could not be more excited to share it! The three-bedroom, two-full-bath charmer is the ultimate Friday Four Hundred, offering picturesque drive-up and an ideal location in the Medical District area. Take a closer look, but beware, this cottage cutie is hard to resist.

From its sizable 7,797-square-foot lot with mature magnolia trees, to its cherry red door, towering chimney, and front porch pergola, we are finding it hard to peel our eyes away from this timeless beauty.

“The house is perfect for someone who needs to be close to the Medical District, Downtown, Uptown, Design District, or Love Field,” says listing agent Debbie Sherrington of Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate Park Cities. “The size is right for many buyer types because of the two living areas, open floor plan, and great backyard. It has all the cottage charm with updates based on modern living needs.”
