midway hollow midcentury

Midway Hollow is a neighborhood in transition, with a lot of fabulous new construction among the 2,600 or so homes in the area. I’ve got a listing to share with you today rebuilt from the studs up in 2014, a midcentury modern design with elegant features, open spaces, and extended sight lines. This home exudes atomic-era style married with modern amenities that appeal to today’s buyers.

Located at 9831 Ontario Ln., this newly listed Midway Hollow midcentury will wow you with polished concrete floors, great flow, and high-end amenities. I think you could have marvelous parties here, especially with the backyard oasis, complete with a contemporary swimming pool and deck.

“This home feels bigger than its 2,874 square feet because of the open floorplan and higher-angled ceilings,” said listing agent Lee Lamont with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. “The kitchen, in particular, is a huge selling feature with European-style flat-front cabinets and a modern, sleek look.”

This home has four bedrooms, three full bathrooms, one half bath, and two living areas, in the Glenridge Estates area of Midway Hollow. I’d love to take you on a tour!

9708 Lakemont a

When a remarkable and beautiful property hits the DFW market, you’d better have your Realtor on speed-dial.

That’s the case with the brilliant home at 9708 Lakemont Dr. in Northwest Dallas’ Glenridge Estates. It went on the market and was put under contract in three days!

This is a Midway Hollow gem, a renovated midcentury bungalow with an open floorplan and potential for expansion. The design is MCM perfection, and there are lots of era-appropriate updates, like museum walls, recessed lighting, updated wiring, new landscaping, sprinkler system, tree lighting, custom drapes, double pane windows, vaulted ceiling, and storage lockers in the carport.

Built in 1952 and sitting near Walnut Hill Lane and Midway Road, this home has two bedrooms, one bathroom, and 1,130 square feet.

Glenridge Estates Midcentury

Today’s Tuesday Two Hundred takes us to Walnut Hill and Marsh lanes in Northwest Dallas, where homeowners have transformed a 1,132-square-foot cottage built in 1951 into an appealing, fresh space that stands out in the neighborhood.

The Glenridge Estates property at 3930 Beechwood Ln. in Midway Hollow makes good use of its footprint, with two bedrooms, two living rooms, and an open floorplan in the common areas.

Glenridge Estates Midcentury

The exterior is transformed with natural stone and wood siding, painted a fetching blue color, and the freshly poured driveway has a crushed stone center in a deep charcoal color that corresponds with the garage door.

This home has a few features that are often considered less desirable in the North Texas market, like only one bathroom, a one-car garage, and a modest footprint. But the renovation has included lots of bells and whistles that may help potential homebuyers overlook them: handscraped hardwood floors; granite countertops, soft-close drawers, and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen; and a good-sized backyard with mature trees and a covered barbecue area with a stone bench and stone counter with built-in grill.

This Glenridge Estates cottage was listed Jan. 14 by Richard Guilliams with Luxe Estates Realty for $279,900.

4050 Valley Ridge Front

Have you noticed some areas of Dallas getting a bit more expensive? We’re talking about Little Forest Hills, Lake Highlands, Kings Highway, and now Midway Hollow. These aren’t terribly huge homes, and yet they’re going for $500K-plus. Why? Because opportunity is knocking, and investors are flipping homes in key areas with high-end finishes and well-thought-out upgrades.

A really prime example of this trend is 4050 Valley Ridge in Midway Hollow’s Glenridge Estates. Jump to see what I mean.

I can say that, besides maybe doing a slightly different kitchen island (I’d go for something that blends with the hardwood floors instead of white) this is exactly the transitional style home for me. Not only does it have a fantastic layout thanks to an open living/dining/kitchen area right when you walk into the home, but it is staged so well, with just the right amount of color and style to make the spaces feel clean and open without feeling cluttered.

And boy, does this cutie have some serious curb appeal! Just look at that welcoming orange front door and that lovely stone and rock pathway!
