Hollywood Heights is pretty darn hot. Great original homes, owners who remodel with extreme care, builders who have to follow conservation district guidelines, great schools, neighborhood activities like parades and Christmas caroling — what’s not to love?

If you want to settle into this neighborhood, then check out 522 Monte Vista Dr., listed for $550,00 with Britt Lopez. Built in 1934, it’s 2,468 square feet of fabulous Tudor charm.

There’s an expectation when buyers shop for a Tudor, and this one checks all the boxes. This four-bedroom, two-bathroom home has the requisite stained-glass windows, a bathroom with funky original art deco tile, arches inside and out, an original fireplace, a covered front porch, and hardwoods.

The kitchen needs some attention, but the biggest renovation has already been done.

“The house was expanded with a master suite upstairs 15 or 20 years ago,” Lopez says. “This created the walk-in master closet, sitting area, loads of built-in drawers, and the private master bath. The present owners renovated the bath less than a year ago with a glass-enclosed shower, dual sinks, and lots of storage.”

Attic renovations are a great way to add space to a home and stay within the original footprint. Hollywood Heights has a fair number of these, and when done correctly like this one, they lend even more charm to these homes and offer great reading and study nooks.

Imagine curling up with a nice novel on your chaise as the sunlight streams through the stained glass window. It might be hard to pry you out when it’s time for the next neighborhood street party.
