The upscale neighborhood of Greenway Park is a favorite of many with its proximity to the Park Cities, community amenities, and great restaurants and shopping. It is bounded by the Dallas North Tollway on the east, Mockingbird Lane on the south, Inwood Road on the west, and University Boulevard on the north.

For today’s Splurge vs Steal, we are looking at two lovely homes in Greenway Park. Which one is your favorite?

Mockingbird Park

Our Inwood National Bank Home of the Week is a surprising find on many levels. This Mockingbird Park Ranch at 3915 Fairley Lane looks like a charming little cottage. It’s so much more. It’s certainly not little. It’s also not a cookie-cutter house. This ranch is full of character, light, and sits on one of the largest, unique lots in the neighborhood on a dedicated block. That’s right; there is only one house on Fairley Lane.

Very much a millennial, he told me that he and his wife made several conscious decisions when they bought their home: they wanted charm, character, and proximity. They did not want to drive. They wanted a park nearby where they could walk as a family. As we talked, I found the underlying drive (pardon my pun) behind this desire to walk: time. Millenials sure learned from their parents that time is the most precious resource on earth. And they sure as hell don’t want to spend it in a car.Neola ext 2 (more…)
