Getting the DirtAs we mentioned last week, we’ve debuted two new Facebook groups designed to provide a platform for the house hunter and the Realtor alike, and all those businesses also make homeownership possible.

This week’s roundup of open houses features two house that came to us during our Open House Roundup feature that we have on Tuesdays on Getting the Dirt, our open group that is a place to talk about trends, to post a story you wrote and ask for direct feedback, and is also home to regular posts like, “Pitch Me Please,” where we will ask Realtors to pitch us their best houses in the $200,000 to $700,000 price points; “Open House Roundup,” where Realtors will have the opportunity to point us to their open houses for the week; “Hip Pocket Monday;” and “Suburb Sunday,” where readers and Realtors will be able to weigh in on what suburb we will look at on Sunday.

Open house: Saturday, Nov. 10, 1-3 p.m.

BethAnne Carter-Buffington with Colleen Frost Real Estate said she has “fallen in love with this home” at 2611 Cotillion Dr. in Sachse.

“These rooms could host so many wonderful family gatherings or you could easily cozy up on the couch and enjoy a cup of coffee or glass of wine while reading a good book,” she said.

The four-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath home has 3,538 square feet of space, with a large kitchen with plenty of storage and beautiful granite countertops, a media room, a game room, a study, and multiple dining and living rooms.

The master suite is substantial, and the home also boasts a mother-in-law suite as well.

Outside, an eight-foot fence ensures privacy and safe play for kids, and there is an extended patio with pergola for outdoor dining, a storage shed, and a kids playset. It’s also walking distance to school.
The home is listed for $378,000.

Kylah Boyd with Texas Urban Living Realty pointed us to her listing at 6222 Twin Oaks Circle, tucked back near the Northwood Hills neighborhood near the Galleria.

Thanks to a remodel, the home has light, bright interiors, a dramatic, modern tiled fireplace, and engineered hardwood floors, as well as tall, vaulted ceilings. The kitchen features quartz countertops, and stainless steel appliances, and plenty of space for cooking and entertaining.

This three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath home boasts an oversized master bathroom — “everything is Texas-sized,” Boyd said — with a modern freestanding soaker tub, dual head shower, and a huge closet.

Boyd even has a quick tour, just in case you’re wanting a little more information.

The home is listed for $515,000.
