One of the great things about Midway Hollow is that there is a price point for nearly everyone — for now.
Today’s Thursday Three Hundred is an example of that — a fully renovated post-war traditional with a wide open floor plan, but a reasonable price tag for a two-bedroom, one-bath home.
Although it’s getting more difficult to find homes as finished and beautiful as this for less than $400,000 in Midway Hollow, this home at 3729 Matador Drive has been completely renovated and fully updated — right down to the floor plan and finishes.
“It is a small home but the space is laid out really well,” listing agent Robyn Brandenburg of Vivo Realty said. “Happy Hour Investments moved quite a few walls and didn’t skimp on the upgrades.”
Brandenburg said Happy Hour always uses some of the most expensive products in their renovations — and that shows in the wow factor, especially at this $350,000 price point.
The beautiful manufactured wood floors extend throughout the living areas, and the bedroom flooring is toasty (and new) carpet.
And that living room — check out the stone fireplace that is perfect for the possible chilly Texas nights, and is a gorgeous focal point to a sizeable entertaining space.
The kitchen, which boasts granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, is open as well, which means you can whip up dinner and still talk to guests.
Both bedrooms are a decent size and have good closet space. The bathroom is elegant – from the tile surround in the bathtub and shower to the marble countertop.
And check out that laundry room — we did a double take and had to ask Brandenburg about it.
“The backroom is a laundry room but it is HUGE!” she agreed. “It could certainly be utilized as a hobby room as well.”
But this isn’t just a pretty house — it was also given several upgrades designed to keep you warm and comfortable as well. The home has a new roof and a tankless water heater, for instance.
And ask just about anyone who owns one of the original 1950s homes in Midway Hollow — one of the draws is the big backyard, and this home is no exception. A gorgeous deck overlooks a lush, green backyard with plenty of mature trees to provide shade.
While this may be the perfect starter home for a bachelor, bachelorette or couple, it is also a great place to stick around for a while, too. The home is zoned for the popular Withers Elementary, but is an easy walk to Foster Elementary as well. Both schools offer Two-Way Dual Language Spanish Immersion.
The neighborhood also has a robust crime watch and extended neighborhood patrol.
