Hot Property: A Charming 1930s Cottage in University Park

This 90-year-old home is an ode to the neighborhood's past.

3703 Granada Avenue, a tiny Tudor nestled on a University Park street, is a tangible snippet of the neighborhood’s past. Despite remodels and updates, the home’s original character is apparent, preserved in the occasional creaky floorboard or delicately weathered brick.

Outside, precisely trimmed shrubbery frames the petite façade, and a sloping slate-gray roof creates a dreamy storybook vibe. Robin egg blue shutters hug the front window, and a matching door, peeking out from beneath an archway, offers a cheery greeting to guests. The white-painted brick exterior feels intentional and original to the home, rather than an attempt to follow the latest trend.

Inside, shining dark hardwoods and creamy white walls are complemented by angled wooden ceiling beams. The kitchen’s custom cabinetry and granite countertops are beautiful in their authenticity; no trendy Carrara or overly sterile white hues here. The home’s three bedrooms, too, are traditional rather than flashy — just cozy wood floors and white walls, offering blank canvases for the next resident to dress up.

The sunroom just off the main living space coaxes light through its arched windows and offers views of the surrounding homes. Nearby, a shaded side yard makes the most of its small square footage; a previous resident even installed a small putting green.

A notable detail for those with children: this home is within walking distance to Texas’ most coveted school district, University Park. For a family looking for a humble Park Cities home, one that celebrates history rather than building over it, 3703 Granada is the perfect haven.
