Share News:

All three of our homes in this week’s roundup of open houses are in the Woodrow Wilson feeder pattern, including 5939 Velasco Ave., listed by Briana Hill with Rogers Healy and Associates.

It’s not uncommon to hear that house hunters in Dallas are looking for homes in the Woodrow Wilson High School feeder pattern — it’s known for its academics, it’s fine arts programs, and its athletics, as well as its strong alumni and parent presence.

Suffice to say, if you’ve never checked out Woodrow Wilson High, you owe it to yourself to investigate, because there are tons of reasons it’s one of the most sought-after public high schools.

Every Thursday, we bring you our pick of the hottest North Texas properties in our CandysDirt.com Open Houses of the Week. These are the places you don’t want to miss that weekend. And this week, our homes all have one Dallas ISD feeder pattern in common — the Woodrow Wilson High School feeder pattern.

Three-Bedroom Townhome Close to Everything

Open House: Sunday, March 3, 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

When we say close to everything, we mean it. This three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath townhome at 6012 Tremont St. is one of 12 in its sought-after community, and is within walking distance to Lakewood Shopping Center, Whole Foods, and the Santa Fe Trail.

It was built in 2001 to emulate the scale of the best of the older homes in Lakewood, and features hardwood floors throughout, custom trim and cabinetry, and Marvin windows. A bright and airy living room boasts a fireplace, too, and just outside the backdoor is a private patio.

The kitchen has granite countertops, new stainless steel appliances, and a gas range.

The master suite is generously sized, and fitted out with an en suite that includes vintage-inspired touches in the tile, pedestal sinks, and more.

And bonus? It’s also zoned for the highly-coveted Lakewood Elementary.

Priced at $475,000, this 1,780 square foot home includes a two-car garage, and is listed by Tim Schutze with Allie Beth Allman and Associates.

Charming Craftsman Minutes from Lower Greenville

Open Houses: Saturday and Sunday, March 2 and 3, 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

This adorable Craftsman may have been built in 1923, but it’s been updated and is ready for a new buyer to move right in. Close to everything Lower Greenville offers, but also close to Lakewood and White Rock Lake, this three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath home at 5939 Velasco Ave. features a second living area that was a seamless addition to the home.

Downstairs, two guest bedrooms, both a full bath and a powder room, a formal living and dining space with a fireplace, plus a large kitchen offer perfect flow for entertaining — especially when you factor in the additional 500-plus square foot second living area and the expansive and beautiful backyard.

Upstairs, a private master retreat with more than 450 square feet of space beckons, along with a utility room that provides tons of storage.

The 3,182 square foot home is zoned for Geneva Heights Elementary and is priced at $699,000. It’s listed by Briana Hill with Rogers Healy and Associates.

Very Familiar M Streets “O” Home

Open House: Sunday, March 3, 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

If our final home looks familiar, it’s because our own Karen Eubank wrote about it in 2017 as one of her Monday Morning Millionaire homes.

“Built by Cambridge Homes, the house is 4,882 square feet and sits on a huge corner lot,” Karen wrote of 6203 Mercedes Ave. The large site made it easy to create five bedrooms, five full and two half bathrooms, as well as a three-car garage — something you rarely see in this neck of the woods. There is even 500 square feet of unfinished space above the garage, ready for a buyer’s custom touch.”

Since Karen only features the best of the best on Mondays, you know this house has to be special, with high-end designer finishes, modern farmhouse accents, vaulted ceilings, and hickory hardwood floors.

The home also has that hard-to-find downstairs master suite, and each of the other four bedrooms also has their own en-suite bath.

Outside, a resort-style backyard impeccably designed by Aquaterra boasts a pool and hot tub, both an artificial turf yard and a grass yard, plus multiple outdoor living spaces.

The home is priced at $1.85 million and is listed by Kyle Brinkley with Brinkley Property Group. It’s zoned for Mockingbird Elementary.
