Friday Four Hundred: West Highland Park for Less Than $500K? You Bet, Fresh on the Market

Share News:

There is too dang much real estate news going on today! I’ve got Tim Headington’s Ritz penthouse, the new controversy over the glass at Museum Tower, second home stats and more agents moving offices. And Champs d’Or is being auctioned off at this very minute. Whoever said real estate news wasn’t exciting?

Whatever is that sculpture on the coffee table?

I’m excited to bring you a home fresh on the market (so new, in fact, I will have to link later!) very south of LBJ, in West Highland Park for $434,970. This home is on Mockingbird Lane with a must-needed rear-entry gate so you can skirt all that rush hour traffic. I like it because it has been redone so well on the interior, is in a great convenient location and to be honest, it is pretty cheap. It has a colonial feel with three bedrooms, two and a half baths, study and sunroom complete with Saltillo tiles that you find a lot of in San Antonio. The kitchen has stainless appliances, Bosch, new counters,  gleaming hardwood floors and plantation shutters. The master is up, a 15 by 15 with a walk in closet. But a converted garage downstairs is a gameroom. The half bath is also the utility room. Now listed for $434,970, it sold for $390,000 back in 2005 but has been upgraded.

    Nice looking home, but you are right about needing a rear entry. Showed a house close to this one last year around 5:30, was a challenge getting in and out of the driveway.
