Mornings seem just a little bit brighter in the M Streets. And on the tree-lined block of Morningside Avenue rests two Greenland Hills Tudors that are bold, beautiful, and unabashedly designed. Each offers tons of character and charm but with price points that are miles apart. Which would you choose, the Remodeled Splurge Or The Stylish Steal? Either way, you’ll be living the good life on one of the most desirable streets in town.

Greenland Hills is one historic Dallas neighborhood that seemingly has it all. Besides the popular M Streets and stunning collection of Tudors, it’s alive with an eclectic – and electric – vibe all its own. That feel is perhaps what defines the neighborhood most.

The Neighborhood Evolution

From the beginning, Greenland Hills danced to its own drummer. According to the Greenland Hills Neighborhood Association , the adjacent Vickery Place and Belmont neighborhoods built in phases, beginning with larger homes and graduating to smaller houses. In contrast, the entire Greenland Hills neighborhood was built simultaneously.

In Dallas, there are few neighborhoods that are almost universally loved. They are places in which, should a darling home hit the market in your price range, you’d almost assuredly race to put a contract on it. In the pantheon of adorable East Dallas neighborhoods, the M Streets is one such place. These Tudors and traditionals and prairie-style homes, combined with the fantastic location and walkability, are selling points for most of us in love with the neighborhood.

But when key updates make a great home even better? Well, that’s what we see at this Greenland Hills listing from Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate’s Mike Bates, our High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans. It’s a perfect example of how to update a 1926 brick Tudor without covering up all of the delicious character. See for yourself!

A home in the Greenland Hills Conservation District usually has such strict architectural protections around it that owners aren’t allowed to tear down any existing dwellings. However, the house at 5240 Mercedes Avenue was a rare exception.

Since the existing home didn’t have the same Tudor style as the rest of the neighborhood, it was given the coveted status of being teardown-worthy, which led to the perfect combination of two worlds. Thanks to CandysDirt.com Approved Builder Patten Custom Homes we now have a new-build Tudor that is consistent with the nearby properties and has all the construction amenities of a modern home. Foam encapsulation, security camera wiring, a high-end kitchen, beautiful hardwood floors, and a contemporary open-plan layout are just some of the features.

In the older neighborhoods of Dallas — those with historic charm, mature trees, walkable streets, and close proximity to entertainment — one of the biggest complaints is the size of the homes. More often than not, the compromise for great location and period details is a tight fit for your furniture. As one agent put it, in several historic Dallas neighborhoods, the word “charming” is often exchangeable with “claustrophobic.”

However, our High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans disproves this theory. It’s a four-bedroom, three-bath Greenland Hills Tudor with three living areas with all those charming details and none of the claustrophobia noted listing agent Rob Elmore of Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate. It’s completely adorable from the curb, and thanks to clever updates, it carries that warm and inviting disposition inside.

It’s true, love is certainly in the air this February! Call us corny, but our hearts truly did skip a beat the moment we first laid eyes on 5242 Monticello Avenue, a charming M Streets Tudor in coveted Greenland Hills.
 
Just in time to fall in love this Valentine’s Day, this three-bed, two-and-a-half-bath home hit the market just a few days ago and it is nothing short of swoon worthy.

Greenland Hills is a very popular East Dallas neighborhood for a few reasons, but most people choose this area because of its convenience. It’s sandwiched between Greenville Avenue on the east and North Central Expressway on the west. It’s close to SMU, Uptown, the Park Cities, and within a reasonable distance from White Rock Lake. Those who want shopping and dining close by will be thrilled by the close proximity to Greenville Avenue, which has become increasingly pedestrian friendly. And if you have children, Mockingbird Elementary (formerly Stonewall Jackson Elementary) has made great strides thanks to its great dual-language immersion program.
 
But it’s the adorable, friendly cottages on the tree-lined streets of Greenland Hills that give the neighborhood its charm. Our High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans is an updated and expanded cottage at 5610 Merrimac that really shows off the neighborhood aesthetic. From its irresistible symmetry, warm interiors, and cozy kitchen, we’re absolutely in love!
