Wolf Creek Contemporary Shines With Updates, Curb Appeal

Share News:

Wolf CreekJust seven minutes or so from what is becoming a hot area thanks to revitalization efforts, our Tuesday Two Hundred this week takes us back to Wolf Creek.

We’ve talked about Wolf Creek before — it’s a great neighborhood full of ranch-style and 80s era soft contemporary homes that are well-maintained, affordable, and are being renovated and updated beautifully.

Wolf Creek is a great place to get the square footage you want, but at a price point that you can’t find often in other pockets of Dallas. Many homes, such as this week’s home, are priced in an increasingly dear $200,000 to $250,000 range. Most if not all in this range are updated and renovated, and some even have additional amenities like pools or workshop space.

There are only 16 houses currently in inventory, and several of them already have pending or contingent offers.

And just taking a gander at the area’s NextDoor page, it’s interesting to see how those who call Wolf Creek home describe the best things about their neighborhood — with words like, “peaceful,” “dog-friendly,” “family-friendly,” and “clean.”

And in the case of 1007 Golden Trophy Drive, you can also add, “incredibly close to future amenities,” because it’s roughly seven minutes or so away from Red Bird Mall, which is now the focus of a revitalization project dubbed Red Bird Reimagined, where a decaying mall and adjacent properties are being transformed and well, reimagined.

“The design provides an open one-acre lawn for community gatherings and events. The Lawn concept creates a unique community environment for Red Bird,” the firm tasked with the transformation, Omniplan, says about the new development. “Connectivity and variety of space and function will allow the melding of landscaping and architecture. It’s a prominent node will draw in the community for an enhanced dining and shopping experience.”

The site is slated to include a hotel and will repurpose existing buildings to create office space, as well as business incubator potential to help entrepreneurs within the Red Bird area.

This three-bedroom, two bath, 1,689 square foot home has a lot to commend it, starting with wonderful curb appeal. Although it’s hard to have green grass in the dead of Texas winter, you can tell that once Spring hits, that blue door and wood accents are going to pop against a lush lawn and some attractive landscaping.

Paint and flooring choices are perfectly neutral, which means your inner designer can go wild — will it be a riot of color against those neutral backdrops, or something sleeker and tone-on-tone, like the current staging?

There are designer touches throughout this home, too — from the fireplace surround that punctuates the dining room but also adds a focal point to the open common area, to the sophisticated kitchen with its stainless steel appliances, gas cooktop, and designer lighting.

A serene master suite offers an updated en-suite with a gorgeous shower and new fixtures as well.

Outside, a big backyard perfect for a family and/or entertaining provides even more leisure space.

Practicalities have also been addressed — there’s a new roof, new HVAC, a new hot water heater, and a new fence.

This home is priced at $224,400 and is listed by Juli Black with United Real Estate. Want to see more photos? Click here.
