The name Greenway Crest might leave you scratching your head unless you were born and raised in Dallas. Let us assure you — it’s a much-coveted neighborhood. It’s also the location of our Inwood National Bank House of the Week at 5338 Emerson Avenue, a luxurious and timeless modern home designed by A. Gruppo’s Thad Reeves and built by Kyle Belew, president of Veranda Fine Homes. (more…)

5523 Druid extI’m throwing this together for our poor Jo, who has the flu. That bug is a tough bugger, so don’t freak if you see me touring homes wearing a mask! I found this house for you in Greenway Crest over south of Lovers Lane, 5523 Druid — there’s a sassy street — east of the tollway but not butting right up to it. And yes, it has been reduced a bit to $450,000 down from a high of $459,000, but no HPISD, sorry, DISD.

5523 Druid LA 5523 Druid kit 5523 Druid master 5523 Druid Master bath 5523 Druid yardThe home is just as cute as a button. You get 1886 square feet with three bedrooms, two full baths, everything remodeled. You get a large family room plus formals, both dining and living room. Like every house in Dallas, there is a new roof, also plantation shutters, a fireplace, granite counters and gleaming hardwoods. Here’s what I really like: a detached office or studio with full heat and air that has a tiled floor. Kind of don’t like the one car garage but you know, you cannot have the world for $450K. I don’t have to tell you how wunderbar this neighborhood is, the great mature trees and even a circular drive on a .5 acre lot. This would be a great investment house for a young couple to buy, enjoy, and then tear down in five years or so. The house is great but was built in 1949, after all. But you know what they say: location, location, location!

As I said out of the blue on NonStop Nightly the other night, there are some homes you just want to hug! This, my dear readers, is one of them. Cute with a capital C, it’s a light, bright cottage in Greenway Crest at 5407 Glenwick Lane. It’s a cozy one: 1540 square feet — just occured to me you can vacuum this home faster than you can order take-out! It has two bathrooms, a two car garage, a large master bath with a built-in vanity and a build in flat screen TV. I LOVE bathroom TV’s — have you seen those that are embedded right in the mirror? It is wonderful to watch TV from your bathtub, a rare luxury you will have in this angel home. The yard is landscaped, boasts a deck, large trees, peace and quiet. The home is so freshly painted it smells new and clean. Still, it says “move in here, I am updated but loaded with ’50s charm” —  the home was built in 1954! Priced at $389,000, listed with Lisa and Bonnie Besserer at Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s, I am saving you some money today off the usual $400K.  More proof of how many wonderful, affordable homes there are in Dallas right under our noses…
