Greenland Hills is one of those neighborhoods that people rarely leave because it’s full of original historic homes. This charming Tudor Revival cottage is a perfect example of why the East Dallas neighborhood chose to become a conservation area.

In 2003, the eastern portion of the M Streets neighborhood seceded to become the M Streets East Conservation District in order to preserve the neighborhood’s original collection of craftsmen’s cottages, colonial homes, and Tudor homes. Now, more than eighty years after its initial development, historic architecture, a variety of styles, and canopies of oak and walnut define the M Streets East Conservation and help the neighborhood preserve the look and feel of an early 20th-century American suburb.

There is a distinct sense of relief knowing that no giant white box can be built next door when buying a home as charming as this one.

Over the years, appropriate and delicate updates have been made to honor the look and feel of the classic 1920s home. Kitchen updates in 2018 include time-perfect white Walker Zanger subway tile, Venatino white marble countertops, and Waterstreet and Newport Brass appliances.

“The house has one of the best expansions I’ve ever seen,” Agent Compass List Gretchen Brasch He said.

In fact, you will be hard pressed to see where the original house ends and expansion begins. The expansion included a masterfully executed attic conversion, so that there are now four bedrooms, with the master on the first floor and the study which could be the fifth bedroom. There are also two large walk-in spaces in the attic for any storage needs.

It seems that one of the requirements of any family home today is to provide a private space for guests and a home office that is not under the same roof as the children! This charming Tudor Revival cottage includes a fully insulated, air-conditioned 2-car garage with 338 square feet of space above it.

Family and friends will enjoy the covered patio with a fireplace and lawn, and the kids will love the sled fort in the side yard!

It’s close to the great attractions of the M Streets neighborhood. It is ideally located between Knox Henderson and Lower Greenville, with easy access to great restaurants and entertainment.
Brasch and Elly Holder own this charming Tudor at 5446 Ridgedale Avenue listed for $1.495 million.

Open House: Saturday, June 25 and Sunday, June 26, from 1 to 3 p.m.
