They are flying off the market, folks! If you are looking for a home in the White Rock Lake area in the $200K range, you have to move faster than the Man of Steel! I swear when I first saw 8705 Vinewood last night while I was surfing for today’s Tuesday Two Hundred, it was still on the open market. Today it’s under option contract!
Still, as Candy says, it’s not over until the ink dries! This house is a total cutie, too. It’s big enough for a small family, small enough for empty nesters, and perfect for an aspiring weekend warrior who wants enough small projects to put in a little sweat equity. And it’s priced at just $229,000!
There are two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,580 square feet in this 1954 traditional in Little Forest Hills. The listing says it’s in “Casa Linda/Casa View,” but technically, since it’s over the railroad tracks and north of Lakeland, it’s in the LFH area. Vinewood is a secluded street that feels really private and doesn’t get too much through traffic. You’re super close to White Rock Lake and the Arboretum, too.
This house has a cute little kitchen with a breakfast nook, which does still have the washer and dryer nearby. Actually, consider it a convenience — you can fold clothes on your breakfast table straight out of the dryer! Perfect!
The master bath has been remodeled with a frameless shower enclosure and a small single vanity. It’s a little small, but hey, it’s cute! I’ll take it! The second bath, however, still features the original two-tone Daltile in an interesting palette of pink and burgundy. That’s where your sweat equity will come in!
So what do you think? Is the east side of White Rock Lake the hottest market in Dallas for the $200K range? Where else should people be on the look out?
