On the southeast side of town, a treasure trove of elegantly designed vintage showpiece homes, have long been overlooked. But now, as original owners are moving on, savvy buyers who aren’t afraid to put in a little TLC should consider Glenbrook Valley, Meadowbrook, or Garden Villas, where many homes are available for the first time since the ’50s, for a fraction of what similar residences are selling for in Garden Oaks/Oak Forest and the Heights.
The Hobby area’s neighborhoods were in vogue in the ’60s, back before developers started focusing on the west side of the city. Today, many of its sleek-lined mid-century ranches still feature mint-colored bathroom tiles, exposed brick, wood-paneled walls, and original mod light fixtures, not to mention mature pecan trees and—in some spots—a flock of wild peacocks roaming the streets.
