It wasn’t but maybe four or five years ago that you could get a three-bedroom, one bath house in Midway Hollow for around $150,000ish. And while that’s not the case anymore, there are still homes to be had in the under $300,000 price range that place you in the hot neighborhood.
And for those that are unfamiliar, Midway Hollow has become hot for several reasons — you still have great tree-lined streets in a walkable, friendly neighborhood, with a robust crime watch group and an extended neighborhood patrol, three great Dallas ISD elementary schools serve the neighborhood, and it’s close to so much, including plenty of grocery options, dining, and recreation.
This Midcentury Bungalow at 3767 La Joya Drive is a great example of a home you can grow into, then add on to when you start to grow out of it. With its three-bedrooms and one bathroom, it’s a great bachelor (or bachelorette) pad or home for a couple, but you can easily also live in it as tiny humans begin to arrive.
And since it’s on an oversized lot, you also have the option of adding on, perhaps creating an entire new master suite, or even just adding on an additional bathroom to an existing bedroom.
The home has been well-maintained, too, with a large living area and a cozy kitchen. Want more entertaining space? One of the bedrooms can easily serve as a formal dining or a second living area, giving you plenty of flexible common area to work with.
With hardwood floors, great updates in the kitchen and bathroom, and more, you really are getting quite a bit for the price point and location.
Outside, a large back deck provides even more entertaining space. A detached two-car garage could even be kitted out to become extra guest space or even a granny flat with its own private entrance, and given its proximity to Love Field and major highways, that kind of investment would likely be quite popular on Airbnb.
