If you’ve driven down East Grand lately, rode your bike along the Santa Fe Trail, or played golf at the Tenison Park Golf Club, you’ve probably seen or heard of a little neighborhood nestled in the middle of it all. Hollywood/Santa Monica is a tight knit community with diverse neighbors including everything from original owners, young families, to professionals making the short commute into Downtown Dallas for work. With it’s close proximity to Downtown, Deep Ellum and Lakewood/White Rock Lake, this little stretch of greenery boasts around 700 homes, most built in the 1930’s and contains one of the largest collections of stone embellished Tudor style homes in the country.

With an established Neighborhood Association that plans holiday events, parties and even Art in the Park, this niche community has a lot to offer the growing population in the Dallas metroplex. Homes go on the market and are under contract quickly here, as many of them are like stepping back into time and a well kept home of yesteryear.

The owner of 7117 Santa Monica is no different in his desire for maintaining the style and comfortable sophistication of this 1950’s bungalow. Expanding and renovating this home has been kept under the watchful eye of the Conservation District, which Hollywood/Santa Monica falls under. Keeping the facade and the original intention in the architecture of these homes is important both to the community as well as neighbors that have lived here for years and are committed to it’s preservation for many more years to come.

The current owner is excited to show how this smaller,1,000 sq. ft. home has been renewed and refreshed, adding designer finish outs, and a layout perfect for entertaining. The new sq. ft. of the home will be around 2,300 sq. ft. and will boast many avenues for welcoming guests and neighbors alike.

Take a peek at some of the before pictures here and the new reveal is intended to take place February 2017. Be on the lookout for news and updates on this sensational opportunity to be in this fantastic neighborhood with a view of Lindsley Park from your front porch!
