What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear “Duncanville”? I’ll bet it’s not “Adorable monthly farmer’s market,” or “Super cute downtown.” Few realize the treasure in this community, which is why we’re almost certain that our Tuesday Two Hundred will catch loads of interest and offers once we tell you about it.
This two-story, 2,572-square-foot traditional at 114 Wes Jesperson Way has three bedrooms, two full baths, and a two-car carport priced at $249,900.
Listing agent Bart Thrasher can’t say enough about the home’s serendipitous location.
“It’s such a cute house, right in the heart of Duncanville,” Thrasher said. “It’s in the original township, right behind the Ben Franklin Apothecary – I’m literally looking at Ben Franklin right now.”
“You can’t believe the amazing amenities,” Thrasher added. “The library is just down the street, and once a month there’s a farmer’s market in walking distance.”
That farmer’s market is the Duncan Switch Street Market, which is held on the third Saturday at the corner of Main Street and Centre Street. The market, which attracts small local businesses, crafters, artisans, and entrepreneurs, has created a significant amount of momentum in downtown Duncanville.
But there’s more to it than that, Thrasher notes. Thanks to a forward-thinking comprehensive planning committee, the area benefits from a planned development district that allows both commercial and residential uses. This home, which falls inside this space, can be used as a live-work space — perfect for small businesses and entrepreneurs!
“The property, which includes the house and a one-bedroom, one-bathroom detached guest house, has been zoned for both residential and commercial/retail use,” Thrasher said. “It could be used as a boutique or a law office. It’s a pretty amazing opportunity.”
