Second chances are rare in our sizzling real estate market, but today’s Thursday Three Hundred offers just such an opportunity.
The Park Forest home at 3610 Weeburn Dr. was only on the market for one day before going under contract last week. Little wonder, with its Midcentury vibe, recent updates, and desirous neighborhood.
But that contract fell through and it’s back on the market as of Dec. 13.This is a 3-2 with 2,091 square feet on a large corner lot with arching shade trees in Northwest Dallas. Park Forest was established in the late 1950s, bounded by Forest Lane on the north, Northaven on the south, Marsh Lane on the east, and Cromwell on the west. It’s a friendly, established neighborhood with wide lawns and lots of homes with big, green lawns.
It is listed by Keith Callahan with Dave Perry-Miller and Associates for $309,900.
To the left of the entryway hall, large formal living and dining rooms have light-colored hardwood floors, which are newly installed. Together, these rooms measure 33-by-11.
The entire house has fresh paint, recessed lighting, and large windows. New atomic-era light fixtures add a touch of retro flair to the space. The family room is a spacious, at 18-by-20, and the large painted brick fireplace takes center stage—it’s wood-burning with gas logs. That big brick surround is so Midcentury.
The room also features built-in shelves and a sliding glass door leading to the backyard. The galley kitchen is updated with granite countertops, white cabinets, and new fixtures. The brick backsplash is another vintage touch in this home. Nearby, the breakfast room has built-in cabinets and a desk with granite and brick. The master bedroom has its own sliding glass door leading to the backyard, and the same hardwoods as the front of the house. It measures 17 -by-12 and feels even bigger.
Both bathrooms in this home were completely renovated last year—very fresh and clean with lots of storage. The large fenced backyard offers lots of green space, as well as a patio and mature trees. What a welcoming space.
Houses in Park Forest are in demand, and we’ve watched several go on and off the market quickly. The details on the first failed contract on this home are not available, but we wouldn’t be surprised at all to see it sold in a matter of days. What are you thoughts on this property?
