Property description

This is two properties for the price of one in the prestigious area of University Park!!! Four blocks to SMU, 3 blocks to the Dart train, 3 blocks to the George Bush Library, 6 blocks to the community pool with slides, kiddie water park and diving boards, Countless restaurants all within a 3 mile radius including high end and casual dining as well as several pubs, clubs and bars. Northpark is less than a mile away and the Galleria and the American Airlines Center (AAC) are both less than 5 miles away. Coming in for work? The Dallas Convention Center is 5 miles away too or you can take the Dart train for a few dollars and it drops you off in front of the Convention Center. EVERYTHING is close to this home. Even the Rangers at Globe Life Park, Dallas Cowboys at AT and T Stadium and Six Flags Park are only a short 25 minutes away. This is a very safe area. Walk the Katy Trail and grab a beer and some lunch at the very well known restaurant called the Katy Ice House. Drive down the street to the Inwood Theatre and catch a first run movie and a cocktail or popcorn and a coke. The main home is a 1939 Cottage totally renovated in August 2014. It is a 4 bedroom 2 and a half bath home that has original, beautiful hardwood floors with 3 bedrooms upstairs and one bedroom downstairs. The Den is decorated with a Texas Flair. The Living Room has a calming room that allows you to relax and read a good book. It has a very large deck on the back of the home to accommodate all the guests. A swing is just off the stairs. The back house (Nicknamed the Dallas Beach House) is like being in a tree house. The windows over look the back yard and the sky lights above the beds feel like you are sleeping in the trees. It is beautifully decorated like a beach house with Shells from Acapulco, Virginia Beach, Seaside Florida and Play De Carmen. It has a Jack and Jill type bathroom with glass sinks in the bedrooms. The banister resembles a front porch railing in Seaside, Florida. For even a larger group we can combine this party and my other property 2 miles away. Look up Park Cities Luxury Cottage VRBO #633423. Thanks

Car: Recommended

This beautiful home is 6 blocks from SMU and the George Bush Library and Museum. Located in the heart of Park Cities which is also referred to as University Park and Highland Park. American Airlines Center and the Dallas Convention Center are both less than 5 miles away. AAC is Home of the Dallas Mavericks and an amazing venue for all the local acts that come to perform in Dallas. Dallas shopping is second to none and is located only 1 mile from Luxury shopping at North Park Mall and 5 miles from the Galleria and Valley View Mall. You can walk to the quaint shops in Snyder Plaza and Preston Center. One of my favorite places for breakfast is Kuby's which has been around since 1961!!! Try the Potato Pancakes....YUMMY!!! This 1939 cottage and back house sleeps 12 people and has been totally renovated in August 2014. The front cottage sleeps 8 and the back house better known as the Dallas Beach House sleeps four people. It can accommodate up to 16 with pull out couches for an additional fee of $100.00 per night. It is down the street from Holmes Aquatic Center with an Olympic size swimming pool, diving boards, kiddie area and water slide and dive in movies. It is connected to Curtis Park where I take my Grandson and we feed the ducks and play on the playground. My daughters favorite place is the Dallas Arboretum that has several different events throughout the year. Her most favorite is the magnificent display of Pumpkins in the fall. My sons favorite areas near my home are Uptown, BIshop Arts District, Deep Ellum, and the New Trinity Groves Area all with lots of bars,and restaurants and in Uptown there are movies. Some of my favorite restaurants are the following...... Raffas (rumored to be Laura Bush's favorite too), Jonathans, Mi Cocina in Highland Park Village across from Dallas Country Club (I have seen Troy Aikman and Jerry Jones there several times). Really there are over 100 great restaurants in a 5 mile radius of this magnificent home. Of course, I can't forget that the famous Six Flags is about 30 minutes away.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: I live in University Park near the home that is for lease. I have lived in this area for the past 10 years. It is so peaceful and with the Top schools in Dallas it is a very safe area for me to raise my children. I went to College in South Texas and moved back to the Dallas area with a Bachelors Degree in Finance. I am in outside sales for a Title Company. I have been in the Real Estate Business buying, selling and renting homes for over 25 years. I love everything about Real Estate. I have been dreaming of owning a VRBO Rental for many years and I am happy that it is finally coming true. I have 3 children and one sweet grandson. I recently got engaged on top of The Empire State Building. I enjoy traveling all over and use VRBO/Home Away all the time. It is so fun to stay in a unique home. It is much more memorable for me and my family to rent a home than to stay in a hotel. I know you will love this home as much as I do!!!

Why the Owner Chose Park Cities, TX, USA:
It is the best area in all of Dallas. I have always loved this property and I just bought it from the original owner. I have the newspaper clipping from when it was purchased in 1939. The area is called Park Cities because when Highland Park originated it had to set aside 20% of the land for Parks. This sweet and unique cottage is in the most affluent area of Dallas and has been totally renovated. It has been decorated and furnished with Pier One , Pottery Barn, Weirs and WIsteria to name a few of the items. I have a fun Mermaid in the Beach House out Back.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This entire property just takes you back a bit in time. It has the original lamp post from the 30's in the yard. The custom fencing makes you feel like you are walking through a European Garden. I think I loved this property most of all because I loved the Original Owners so much....Mr Jim and DeDe. I have taken its original Charm and added a bit to it for the main home. For the back house I brought the beach to Dallas. I love the Beach so much and in Dallas as you know we don't have one. You should come here just to stay in the back house that feels like a tree house decorated like Seaside Florida even with a custom Mermaid, Dolphin and Shark. It has a wall of windows over looking the back yard. Each room has its own sink and the 2 back bedrooms share a shower.
