East Dallas Architecturally Significant Tudor Cottage Home

Tudor Cottage Home in East Dallas

5427 Morningside Avenue, Dallas, Texas

5427 Morningside captures the charm of the several hundred Tudor cottages on the M Streets, now a conservation district. These brick homes with irregular stone ornamental inlays have a screened porch on one side, stained glass on the other, and a front door in the middle, close to the chimney with the intricate brickwork and tile cap. A living room, dining room and kitchen line up on one side and two bedrooms with a shared bath on the other. From 1975 until the present, attics have often been converted to living quarters, bathrooms have been added and side porches closed in. The rhythm of these similar but individually distinctive homes continues to provide great appeal.
