alexanderThis adorable Midcentury Ranch in Wolf Creek is so special it already had a contingent offer after four days on the market. Zoned for this week’s Dallas ISD best school, Birdie Alexander Elementary, it’s a great example (the second for today) of what you can get for the $100,000 range in Dallas.

This home is in the attendance zone for Birdie Alexander, who was recently featured as one of Dallas ISD’s best schools. The school, which received a B grade from the state’s A-F accountability scoring, will become a neighborhood innovation campus next year with a personalized learning focus.

And this home at 920 Bluewood Drive is a great example of the inventory you can find in the area. While this one has been the beneficiary of a great redo, if you want to put your own stamp on a home, there is also plenty of opportunities to find a home to renovate yourself.

This three-bedroom, one bath house has just a little more than 1,000 square feet, but with a 7,667 square foot lot, you could conceivably add on (especially at this price point).

Inside, however, it feels much more spacious, with an open floor plan that keeps the smaller square footage from feeling claustrophobic, thanks to big windows and beautiful wood floors in the common areas.

The kitchen, which is open to the living spaces, has new granite countertops, an undermount sink, new white cabinets, a sleek backsplash, and new stainless steel appliances.

The bathroom has been completely renovated, and there is new paint inside and out, as well as new ceiling fans and new carpet in each bedroom. New Low-E double pane windows will also keep the home energy friendly.

Dee Clark with Re/Max Dallas Suburbs has listed the home for $139,900. To see more photos, click here. To see more about Birdie Alexander Elementary, click here. To see the other schools we’ve featured in School Plus House, click here.
