When Dallas City Center Realtor Britt Lopez sent me a link to her newest Hollywood Heights listing, I knew we had to have it on the blog because it was absolutely love at first sight.

Ya’ll already know that I’m not the craziest about Tudors. They’re cute, but a lot of times they fall into two categories: Mostly original with claustrophobic rooms or completely gutted into something completely unrecognizable from its former self.

This home, though … I was speechless. If you know me, that’s a feat in and of itself because I rarely shut up. It’s a Tudor on one of the cutest streets in Hollywood Heights and has the perfect combination of original details and smart, timeless updates that you’ll just swoon.

I love that the original brick-and-stone facade has been preserved, and thanks to smart landscaping and annuals that add pops of color, this home has outstanding curb appeal. The arched plate-glass windows in the sunroom are just divine and add so much character, and the front door, which is also arched, is just pristine.

Of course, inside there are even more lovely details …

If you think you’ve seen Stacey Warnix’s home at 6934 Hammond Ave. before, you’re not having deja vu. Our own Cassie Evans featured this home as an off-market listing just weeks ago. This five-bedroom, three-bath renovated Tudor is in one of the mos picturesque areas of Hollywood Heights and has such fabulous finish-out thanks to Warnix’s own superb tastes.

While she absolutely adores this home, Warnix is ready for a fresh start in a new house. After a previous offer fell through due to financing woes, she’s putting this beauty on MLS hoping to get more bites. Surely, buyers will love some of the creative uses of space in this lovely abode, and the second floor, a converted attic, is just so cozy and chic.

In fact, she’s had so much interest in this remodel that Warnix is planning to launch her own firm that will do upscale renovations. To get a sample of her style, don’t miss the Hollywood Santa Monica Neighborhood Association Home Tour April 25-26, where you can tour Warnix’s home as well as several other gorgeous Hollywood Heights houses. Hurry and buy your tickets today!
