To some buyers, 6820 Garlinghouse looks like too much work. It’s a 1985-built ranch in Far North Dallas that is in original condition, according to Ashli Clements of Minnette Murray Properties, a boutique real estate group under Coldwell banker residential brokerage.

“It has really good bones and the floor plan works well for today’s families,” she said. “It’s totally livable right now. The seller lived in home for four years and didn’t change a thing. The breakfast nook is actually beautiful, with that gorgeous ceiling.”

But today’s buyers seem to be lacking in vision and inspiration, because at 2,565 square feet, this home is priced just right for the renovation-minded. This four-bedroom, three-bath home inside the Dallas city limits but with Plano ISD schools is being marketed for just $350,000 — a steal! Plus, buyers will receive a $10,000 allowance toward upgrades, making those Pinterest boards you’ve been carefully curating for your dream house even closer to tangible reality.

I know what you’re thinking: But what about the traffic from Hillcrest? According to Clements, that’s a non-starter.

“Once you pass McCallum Blvd., Hillcrest turns from six lanes to four, and changes to a more residential area from a more commercial feel,” Clements said. “Hillcrest isn’t that busy that far north.”

Plus, Clements added, there’s a huge backyard with a patio that is buffered from the nearby street thanks to the home’s smart floor plan.

This home is ripe for a remodel and is in such great shape, we’re absolutely shocked a smart buyer hasn’t come along to snap it up! It’s a great chance to take all of that inspiration you’ve gleaned from Pinterest and make it a reality.

    OMG okay I see so much potential! What if you surfaced those brick columns (which I really like) in a stacked stone facade — I think Pavestone has some. Or painted white? I would redo the kitchen and floors of course in this neat new material I just found called PLANE (stay tuned). Make that counter behind the sink larger, this house has GREAT bones and Plano ISD? Oh and dark hardwood floors would make that ceiling POP! Great listing! I almost want to buy it and flip — anyone feel like a project???
