Robert Irvin with Keller Williams Central has listed 5231 Goodwin Avenue for $525,000.

We have a thing for Tudors, and this one is no exception. Ideally nestled on Goodwin Avenue in coveted Vickery Place, rests a 1924-built brick Tudor so good you’ll want to call your real estate agent right away! Tudors, known for their sharp rooflines, arched windows and doors, and adorable floor plans, are great homes for cozy living!

Vibrant Locale

The Vickery Place Tudor offers a prime address on a quiet street, mere blocks from all the foodie and retail action. We’re not kidding. Living here means you’ll have Greenville Avenue shops and Knox-Henderson haunts just steps from your front door! But that’s not all this historic home affords.

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.”
