Restored Modern Farmhouse in Wylie Turns Up the Charm

Share News:

WylieWe don’t get out to Wylie enough, so when Erin Burkart with Keller Williams Central reached out to us during our Pitch Me Please round last week on our Facebook group, Getting the Dirt, we were super pumped when she shared the price — because it was perfect for this week’s Thursday Three Hundred.

And, by the way, did we mention today is another Pitch Me Please day, so if you’re a Realtor, you should be checking it out? And if you’re a seller, you should be firing off an email right now that says, “GO PITCH MY HOUSE TO CANDYSDIRT.COM’S FACEBOOK GROUP.”

But we digress.

This house, located at 2745 Vinson Road, packs in quite a bit of bang for the buck. How much bang? Try an updated 3/2 Traditional Ranch that makes for a great modern farmhouse, plus more than three acres of tree-lined land with a three stall horse barn with electricity and a large storage shed — for $375,000.

To say this is a one of a kind property is an understatement,” Burkhart told us. “Land in the area is scarce — and this land is beautiful.”

Inside, the home has farmhouse charm — right down to the shiplap on the walls, the wood beams on the ceiling and the wood on the floors in the extra large living room.

But it’s also got some modern updates, with granite in the kitchen, and stainless steel appliances, along with a eat-in bar and room for a large table.


The master suite has his-and-hers closets and an en-suite bathroom.

“This home is the perfect blend of modern farmhouse, and every surface has been remodeled,” Burkhart said.

Outside, both the front and back porches are covered, offering a respite from Texas summers, and that back porch has loads of room for a barbecue grill and al fresco dining.

Burkhart said the location can’t be beaten, either.

“Wylie was ranked one of the top cities to live by Money magazine,” she said. “It has a small town feel with its charming downtown area, but is also close to George Bush and 75, making it a perfect place to reside.”

And if you’d like to tour the property, it’s easy-peasy this weekend — there will be an open house this Saturday, Nov. 17, from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
