When Debbie Williams with Dave Perry-Miller-Preston Center told us about this adorable Midcentury Cottage in Elmwood with a fantastic price point, we knew we had to take a look.
For one, in a city where move-in ready inventory in the $200,000 to $350,000 price point can be a bit dear, Elmwood is still a place where you can reliably find a Dallas starter home. And unlike other locations at this price point, Elmwood is near plenty of fantastic amenities, and a fantastic commute for anyone working in the downtown area.
With it’s proximity to Bishop Arts and Trinity Groves, plus a soon-to-be revitalized Wynnewood Village (including a movie theater), Elmwood is a great option for a new homebuyer.
“This charming two-bed, one-bath home is in the heart of desirable Elmwood Addition, an area in the process of a great rebound,” Williams told us. “It’s a great time to get in at the beginning of the curve.”
And this house at 1123 Pioneer Dr. is a wonderful exemplar of that Elmwood inventory. While two bedrooms and one bath might seem cozy, when you factor in the large yard and deck, the siren call of upgrading from apartment life to a a single family home comes calling.
Williams said that with careful and deliberate updates, this house actually feels much larger, too.
“With 1,280 square feet, this house is spacious and cozy all at the same time,” she said. “The kitchen and bathroom have both been updated, hardwood floors throughout most of the house with tile in the bath, kitchen, and sunroom.”
With the sunroom, you also get some flex space, since it can easily become either a second living space, an office, playroom, or even an outsized mudroom, given it’s proximity to the backyard.
And what a backyard, too — plenty of privacy-fenced green space and a nice deck with a pergola to create a wonderful oasis ready for entertaining.
“A spacious backyard with a new deck in the backyard is perfect for entertaining and enjoying a relaxing dinner outside,” Williams said.
Two generously-sized bedrooms and a well-appointed bathroom complete the home, which is listed for $269,000.
