dfw open houses

The home at 3805 Country Club Dr. in Flower Mound is one of four we’re featuring in this week’s open house roundup.

The weekend after Christmas is not prime real estate shopping time, so this weekend could be your opportunity to visit some lovely properties on the market without fighting crowds. It’s slim pickings for open houses, but we found four that range in price from $500K to $1.695 million in neighborhoods around North Texas.

richardson real estateFor families looking to live in a northern suburb, today’s Tuesday Two Hundred offers a chance to get a lot of house for under $300K with the opportunity to totally personalize the space.

The Richardson house at 5403 Kingston Dr. is 2,158 square feet with four bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and an open floorplan in the shared rooms. Located near Renner and Murphy roads, east of Central Expressway, this Collin County house is zoned for Plano ISD, and its elementary, Miller, earns a 10 out of 10 rating from GreatSchools.org.

There’s a nice-sized backyard, and the house is just one block from the 417-acre Breckinridge Park, with trails, pavilions, picnic and playground areas, a gazebo, 12 soccer fields, two softball fields, three ponds, and tons of undeveloped green space. It’s also about a 10-minute drive from the CityLine mixed-use development.

HOA dues are a very reasonable $90 per quarter, and the house itself was listed Sunday by Kurt Buehler with Keller Williams Realty Dallas Metro North for $250,000 ($116 per square foot).
