"Affordable homes in a historic neighborhood"

Hollywood and Santa Monica are East Dallas neighborhoods that are host to modest family homes and a few that are a little more upscale in a charming and historic area. This is one of the few areas in Dallas where you can get a three-bedroom home for around $200,000. It is adjacent to Tenison Golf Course and Samuel-Grand Park which has baseball diamonds and playground equipment for kids.

This is a diverse neighborhood with a number of different cultures and for the most part a good place to raise a family with friendly neighbors and most lawns well cared for. It is now part of a special conservation project to protect historic homes within the neighborhood and that bodes well for future property values. It is only minutes to Downtown Dallas as well as Lower Greenville Avenue, one of the best destinations in town for fine dining and great nightlife and live music venues. On the edge of the neighborhood are several local gems you need to check out for yourself. The House of Coffee and Conversation on East Grand Avenue is the place to get a steaming cup of java and get to know your neighbors in a laid-back atmosphere.
  • close to Downtown Dallas
  • close to fine dining and shopping
  • heavy traffic on adjacent roads during rush hour
  • rising crime rates over the past two decades
