Everyone seems to be moving to Dallas these days, especially people who are transferred or promoted by one of the billion corporations that call Dallas their headquarters. Finding housing is a big problem for folks moving to a brand-new place, so I’m going to make it easy for them.
This home — 7238 Joyce Way, to be exact — would be a fantastic home for an executive with upward trajectory just moving to Dallas. The location, which is just south of Walnut Hill and smack in the middle between Hillcrest and North Central Expressway, is perfect for someone still getting their bearings. And the price — $499,000 — won’t have you running for the hills, or the next promotion.
The home is nothing to sneeze at, either. This house, repped by Lori Sparks of Virginia Cook Realtors, has two living areas, four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a saltwater pool and a two-car garage totaling just less than 3,000 square feet.
This house was built in 1967, but there’s not a trace of original anything left on this home. If you’re moving to Dallas for a corporate relocation, you don’t want to buy a fixer-upper or a house you can’t invite your boss over to. No way, Jose. This house is practically pre-assembled and totally neutral.
The kitchen is very pretty, and will be great for dinner party prep once you ace that electric cooktop and route a gas line in there. Everything else is what you’d expect: Stainless, granite, fresh cabinets, and tumbled stone backsplash. There’s plenty of extra storage for plates and doo-dads in the breakfast nook, as well as a small wet bar with a wine fridge, which will be absolutely necessary when hosting your boss.
The master suite is large and slightly set apart from the rest of the house. The bedroom is fairly standard, and two full-light doors divide the sleeping area from the lavatory. The master bath is your typical five-piece bath, with a rather standard shower stall and tub combo. The double vanities are average, too.
The backyard, that’s where this place has some real character. Check out the free-form saltwater pool with cascading river rocks. There’s also a decent-sized patio, which will fit a dining set and a grill, no problem. Maybe, just to spice things up a bit, you can negotiate the flying pig!
