Midway Hollow is a neighborhood in transition. Among the cottages, ranches, and midcentury moderns, you’ll find a lot of updated properties and recently, new construction. Their good-sized yards, cheerful facades, and mature trees create a welcoming vibe.
You’ll find our Thursday Three Hundred here at 3719 Valley Ridge Rd. here, a charmed cottage with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,276 square feet on one story, built in 1951. It’s the perfect blend of updated style and original features.
The neighborhood’s proximity to LBJ Freeway, the Dallas North Tollway, and Interstate 35 make it super convenient to zip around DFW. This property is near Walnut Hill and Marsh lanes, making it just about equidistant to all three highways. Handy.
Curb appeal pleases with pink brick, landscaping, and a front porch. Some of the invisible-but-awesome updates include a new roof, updated windows, and a tankless water heater. Across the threshold, walk into the living room with its hardwood floors, large picture window, crown molding, sparkly chandelier, fresh paint, and gas log fireplace.
The owners have staged this property beautifully — it accentuates function and flow, looking stylish, too. They’ve chosen a “midcentury light” vibe, which totally works. Staging is less common in this price range, which is a shame; when done correctly, it can make a sale happen faster and for bigger bucks.
The living room leads to the dining room, separated by two built in dividers with shelves. This room is open to the kitchen, a fun space with light green cabinets, granite tile countertops, and stainless steel appliances, including a gas range.
All three bedrooms have those same gorgeous hardwoods as well as decent closet space with sliding doors and lots of windows. The master has a black-and-white ensuite bathroom with two pedestal sinks, sink-shower combo, and checkered floor tiles.
In back, there is a covered patio, new board-on-board fence, electronic gate, and a detached two-car garage with a cedar closet.
This Midway Hollow cottage was listed Jan. 18 by Tamra Holden with United Real Estate for $348,500.
