Torn between the more practical 6515 E Mockingbird and the more exotic 6928 Santa Monica. Any opinions? I have a 4 year old who may start school while I am there but I think they are both Lakewood El. I can't get over how beautiful Lindsley Park area is, but I do get a fireplace and yard at Mockingbird. Would I even use a fireplace here?
Am I asking for trouble renting a 1935 home?
I love how close to Lakewood theater these both are, but one is more Lakewood and one is more Whiterock Lake-- or am I just looking at Mockingbird from the wrong direction and it is closer than I think?
Thanks to all! Glad my searching has turnrd up two nice possibilities!

Both are nice areas. I'd go for Santa Monica myself.
I wouldn't worry at all about the fireplace. You would use it here, but not very often. It is a lovely area, with much less traffic than you will get on Mockingbird. You will be near to so many parks, and in such walkable areas that the yard might not be an issue.

As for the 1935 construction, I wouldn't be concerned. They knew how to build then! I've lived in three places in East Dallas 1918, 1927, 1932 manufacture dates, and never had a problem. If that one appeals more I'd snag it. There is an value to living someplace you love that is far above anything else.
Either way I'm glad you found something, and maybe I'll see you around the area.

We were a little concerned about having a child in there- lead paint, weird stuff (like old asbestos-type things).
So- decision time!
