For this week’s School Plus House, we head to Henry Gonzalez Elementary School in Pleasant Grove, which has earned a whole slate of accolades in the past few years, and was recently featured as one of Dallas ISD’s Best Schools.

The school offers more than 20 extracurricular activities, including Chinese (seriously, Chinese). Next year, they’ll become an innovation academy and personalized learning school.

Last year, Gonzalez Elementary earned an A in the state A-F ratings and four distinctions from the TEA last year. It also earned the North Texas Gold Ribbon School award last year, too, as well the Dallas ISD Breakthrough Campus award.

And while Gonzalez is definitely not a fixer-upper, our Piedmont Addition listing is — but only just. This 1949 Traditional at 7143 Bramlett Drive may need a little work, but it’s clean, neat, and completely available to live in as you renovate.

It’s also a five-bedroom, three bath home with 1,952 square feet of space, which means you can do all kinds of things to that floorplan. Don’t need five bedrooms? Maybe you could drop a wall and make a grand master, a bigger kitchen, or a larger living area. And with a decent sized lot, you can also add potentially, too.

And at $180,000, the potential to make this home in an established neighborhood is huge. And well, you’ve got the school already taken care of, too.
