Grand Prairie Midcentury Traditional With a Garage Conversion

Share News:

Grand PrairieFor this week’s Weekend One Hundred, we trek to Grand Prairie, where we found a Midcentury Traditional that puts the cherry on top of a move-in sundae — it’s super close to the new IKEA, the mecca for anyone who moves into a new home.

I mean, how convenient is that?

This three-bedroom, two bath home is located at 305 West Springdale Lane, and is also within walking distance to Barbara Bush Elementary. It has nearly 2,000 square feet of space, and that includes a garage conversion that provides some flex space for a den, playroom, or even office.

The house has been repainted and retextured, and the master also has new carpet. An adorable kitchen has open storage and white counters, too.

Outside, a new above ground pool was added, along with a deck (really — a pool in a home in the $100,000 range).

Practicalities were also addressed — there’s a new HVAC system with Nest thermostat, 23 inches of insulation and a radiant barrier to keep the home toasty in the winter and cool in the summer.

The home is priced at $185,000, and is listed by Madeleine Chapa with Century 21 Mike Bowman. To see more photos, click here.
