We’ve taken it upon ourselves to point out examples of bad real estate photos and poorly presented houses for sale.
Today, our Thursday Three Hundred is the exact opposite, a shining example of making the very best of its assets through staging and photography.
The home at 3965 Boca Bay Dr. in Northwest Dallas’ Glen Cove is an updated ranch with four bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living areas, and 2,232 square feet, built in 1965. Glen Cove is in the larger neighborhood of Glen Meadow Estates, north of Midway Hollow, a family-friendly, established area with mature trees and a sense of community. Homeowners in this area can be a member of the Glen Cove Swim Club.
It will be listed tomorrow by Beth Nunneley Mazziotta with Nunneley Real Estate for $330,000.
The home was staged by CandysDirt contributor Karen Eubank of Eubank Staging & Design.
“I suggested painting the entire home, adding new carpet, new light fixture in dining room, and staging the home,” Eubank said. “The seller was on board for the changes and thrilled with the outcome.”
This is a well-maintained, soft contemporary with stained concrete floors everywhere except the bedrooms, which have new carpeting. It was built by Fox and Jacobs back in their heyday, and listing agent Mazziotta explains the interior has a special feature
“The cool thing about a truss house [like this] is it doesn’t have interior load-bearing walls — that means you can put a wall up and knock a wall down a lot easier,” she said.
The secondary bathroom has been updated, and the owner put in a high-end fence and electric gate on the driveway leading to the two-car garage in back. The galley kitchen is white, light, and bright and the owner has quite the green thumb — the landscaping is lovely.
We’re quite taken with this 1960’s ranch and would love to hear your thoughts, too.
