Thursday Three Hundred: Lakewood For Less Than $350K? Yes, Please!

From the street, 6319 Velasco Avenue looks like another great Lakewood home.

Lakewood is hot. But, dearest Dirt-o-phile, you already knew that. Homes are under contract before they hit MLS in some cases, and in others, they’re sold within weeks of listing.


But sometimes you can find a deal where no one else is looking. That’s the case with 6319 Velasco from our fine friends at Rogers Healy and Associates. Maybe, on the other hand, it’s a deal because the bathrooms are problem areas. I wouldn’t be able to tell, though, because the listing for this home doesn’t have a photo of either of the two baths in this quaint, 2,056-square-foot home with three bedrooms. It’s kind of a pet peeve of mine.

The listing does boast “original details,” such as a telephone nook and stained glass. Methinks the cupboards inside the “country kitchen” might need a little sprucing up, though. Unless you’re into wood paneling. The apron sink is a keeper, though!

Otherwise, it’s exactly what you’d expect from a Lakewood traditional: archways, trees, and tons of charm. And the price just went down, too, to the tune of $5,100. Sounds like a steal to me!

  • Pictures missing of key areas always make me suspicious.

  • I bet those "original details" are hideous pink tile, possibly a rusting bathtub and/or leaking faucets at the sink? I agree that sink in the kitchen is a keeper along with the free-standing range. Burn everything else in that room. Ok, not burn it, but would love to take a sledgehammer to those cabinets. Bleck!

    Candy, my Mom and StepDad have a place in Shawnee, OK built in 1929 (think they are only the 5th owners). Anyway, they have a telephone nook that is operational. For Christmas one year, I bought them the vintage style rotary look telephone from Pottery Barn. Looks great.

  • Candy, hate to bust your chops AGAIN, but this little home isn't in Lakewood. It's west of Abrams in Lakewood Heights, which means no access to the highly desirable Lakewood Elementary School.

    Under $350k in Lakewood IS a deal……but only if it's really in Lakewood.

  • We'll be more clear in the future, DGirl! I guess I should've checked DCAD before accepting the listing's indication that this was in Lakewood proper.
