Cedar Crest Cottage Is Big on Charm, Small on Price

Share News:

Cedar CrestDays on market for move-in ready homes in the $100,000 to $200,000 range around North Texas are tiny little pockets of time, blink-and-you’ll-miss-them openings. So when this Cedar Crest cutie landed in our inbox this week, we knew it was our next Weekend One Hundred.

And we also know you should probably shake a leg if you’re looking for something in that price range — Cedar Crest is a great neighborhood full of charming homes.

A well-established neighborhood close to downtown with a bustling neighborhood association and the Cedar Crest Golf Course, which hosted the first PGA tour in 1927.

“For decades the Cedar Crest neighbors have demonstrated pride in home ownership, which is discernible by many of the uniquely designed custom built homes,” the association’s website said. “The community is well noted for community and political involvement and has produced many business owners, educators, and dignitaries.”

And this 1950s piece of adorableness at 2812 Canary Drive, sent to us by listing agent Kelly Logsdon Rush with Ebby Halliday, is a great example of the affordable finds available in the neighborhood.

The two-bedroom, one bath home is 812 square feet of space, but sits on a 9,583 square foot lot, which means that there’s always the possibility for adding on eventually, too. The exterior has loads of curb appeal, with great landscaping and a cute little porch.

Inside, a Midcentury style open floor plan allows for a living room and dining area to flow into the kitchen. Hardwoods punctuate the common areas, with cozy carpet in the bedrooms. The full bath has also been updated.

The kitchen boasts wood cabinetry and an eat-in breakfast nook.

“This charming home has been meticulously maintained, is completely updated and move in ready!” Logsdon Rush said.

The Cedar Crest home is listed for $114,900. For more photos, click here. To see more of our coverage of Cedar Crest, click here.
