The Midway Hollow area is a perennial favorite for buyers looking for an established neighborhood inside the LBJ loop with personality, affordability, and proximity to central Dallas.
With about 2,200 houses, Midway Hollow fits the bill. Established in the 1950s, the neighborhood is full of ranch-style houses, cottages, and midcentury gems. Today’s Thursday Three Hundred at 9463 Green Terrace Dr. is a traditional ranch located on a secluded cul-de-sac in the heart of Midway Hollow (the boundaries are Marsh Lane on the west, Walnut Hill on the north, Midway on the east, and Northwest Highway on the south).
As Dallas Realtor Douglas Newby notes, “Midway Hollow has drawn young professionals and families from across the city who enjoy good architecture, large lots, tree shaded streets, and the vibrancy of a neighborhood being rejuvenated. Fine private academies such as Ursuline, Hockaday, and ESD are very close.”
From the manicured landscaping to the artfully appointed interior, this home feels polished and complete, with three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and 1,973 square feet. It is newly listed by Mark Storer at Allie Beth Allman & Associates for $398,000.
The formal living and dining rooms of many midcentury houses are often wasted space where fancy furniture sits, unused and unnoticed. Not so in this house, where the front room is inviting and stylishly decorated. The organic sculpture above the dining room table is particularly striking, making a memorable first impression from the entryway.
A second living room near the kitchen has built-ins, painted wood paneling, hardwood floors (which extend into the bedrooms, as well), and recessed lights. By the glass doors and window is a brick fireplace, and a breakfast bar looks into the kitchen.
The kitchen is updated with painted cabinets and modern fixtures, as well as a movable center island and stone backsplash.
The master bedroom feels expansive with the hardwoods, large windows, and glass doors, which look out onto the swimming pool. The two bathrooms have vintage tiles in excellent condition.
The backyard is relaxing and serene, with manicured landscaping, mature trees, and a swimming pool and hot tub.
Midway Hollow is a happening spot in Dallas real estate—values of many homes in the area have doubled or more in the past decade. Our bets are on this well-maintained and updated house to get snatched up quickly by a lucky buyer.
