Today’s Tuesday Two Hundred is a completely updated 1969 house, with a package of appealing features in an up-and-coming neighborhood.
The home at 3065 Kinkaid Dr. is located in Bradford Estates near Webb Chapel Road and Walnut Hill Lane in Northwest Dallas. It’s an easily accessible area with lots of houses from the 1950s and 60s, friendly atmosphere, and wide, green yards.
This house itself has eye-catching curb appeal, with a one-year-old class-4 standing seam metal roof, unusual to spot on a home priced well under $300K. Metal roofing is increasing in popularity because of its sleek look, as well as for being lightweight, strong, fire resistant, energy efficient, and, with the class 4 rating, hail resistant (many insurance carriers offer a discount for this kind of roof—bonus!).Other features: all new windows, new HVAC system, new appliances, hardwood floors, a fire glass fireplace, lovely landscaping, swimming pool, and a hot tub under a covered patio.
This home is a 3-2 with 1,815 square feet, listed Nov. 14 by Shae Nault with Keller Williams DFW Metro Areas for $249,900, and it was reduced on the 20th to $244,900.
The house has a good flow and open feeling—part of it is the floorplan, part if the abundant natural light from the new windows. The light-colored hardwoods and a light, neutral color palette (fresh paint everywhere) also keep it airy. To the left of the entryway, French doors lead to formal dining room; to the right, the living room and breakfast room. In the living room, a large brick fireplace with ice blue fireglass, a low-maintenance option for gas fireplaces. With the vaulted ceiling and light paint, this feels like a cozy, welcoming space. A breakfast bar looks into the kitchen, and is flanked by built-in shelves.
In the kitchen itself, lots of renovations, with granite counters, new appliances, new stone backsplash, and newly painted cabinets with new hardware. The master bedroom is roomy, measuring 18-by-15, with a walk-in closet, recessed lighting, hardwood floors, and small ensuite bathroom that is updated. The second and third bedrooms both measure 11-by-11, and also have the same hardwood floors—no carpet anywhere. The second bathroom is also updated with new tile, fixtures, and a contemporary sink. The high ceilings are a nice amenity. The last stop in this home is the backyard, and it doesn’t disappoint—a hot tub under a covered wood deck, looking out onto a blue swimming pool. There’s a little landscaping along the garage wall, but the pool is really the main star.
