If a move-in ready, totally updated house with almost 2,000 square feet is on your wishlist, look no further than our Thursday Three Hundred.

Located at 13409 Purple Sage Rd. near Alpha and Coit roads in North Dallas, this house is about two miles north of LBJ with easy access, so getting to the Tollway or Central Expressway is a snap. It’s also zoned for Richardson ISD, which appeals to many families (as will the big backyard).

Kitchen and master bathroom rank high on this property, which has four bedrooms, two full bathrooms, one half bathroom, two living areas, and 1,997 square feet on one story, built in 1967.

Curb appeal is another nice touch, and this house has a big shade tree, freshly painted shutters, and a welcoming front porch. Let’s look inside.

To the left of the entryway, the formal living and dining areas have hand-scraped hardwood floors, a big bay window, fresh paint, crown moulding, and a fabulous atomic era-style chandelier. The second living area features wood beams on the ceiling, recessed lighting, and a brick, wood-burning fireplace.

Let’s talk about that kitchen: think granite countertops, decorative tile backsplash, gas cooktop, double ovens, and stainless steel appliances (except the dishwasher). So many cabinets, too.

The master bath has been gutted and reconfigured to include double sinks on a floating contemporary vanity, a separate tub and walk-in shower with frameless glass, and white subway tile, always a classic choice.

Other updates and amenities include all new light fixtures throughout, new windows, and a separate utility room with a sink and hookups for a washer-dryer.

This home was listed Jan. 6 by Ross Spencer with Gilchrist & Company Real Estate for $369,000.

    Basically a decent looking redo but not enough fixes for that price. Someone will buy it no doubt! Kitchen cabinets have a lot of storage but the granny aspects were not removed. I don’t understand why people don’t renovate both bathrooms. No one likes tile covered countertops or old fashioned looking wallpaper and the mirrors look ancient in both the tile bathroom and the laundry room with the washer and dryer. If you don’t have the money, then cut back in other areas and do the bathrooms modestly. Why do they squeeze both a tub and shower into a small master bath – I guess that’s what buyers want but it looks crowded to me and you still have one original bath to redo at some point ($$). It looks like corner cutting to wavy potential buyers.

    I used to live in the area — roughly, Coit and Spring Valley. That area really deteriorated and I think is struggling to come back up. Location is great, but…someone needs to have their eyes open and be ready to live in a transitional area. It borders Northwood Hills so the big homes with big prices are nearby.

    A friend of mine grew up on Purple Sage — it was once a lovely neighborhood. The whole area needs to turn over again, which is cyclical.
