Completely Renovated Midcentury Cottage Near Downtown Garland

Share News:

GarlandWhen we look for that magical turnkey home in the $100,000 to $199,999 price point for the Weekend One Hundred, sometimes it’s like searching for a unicorn. But today’s property is not only turnkey, it’s close to downtown Garland in the established neighborhood of Park Groves.

Yes, this Midcentury Cottage is a three-bedroom, one bath, but it makes an excellent home for a first-time buyer, and can even see you through getting married, having a kiddo, and even elementary school.

Located at 1500 Hilltop Drive, this listing is also very new — as in, it’s not even been on the market a full 24 hours. It sits on a 9,104 square foot lot, too, which means that with some clever configuring and a great architect and contractor, you could probably even finagle a second bathroom, potentially turning one of the bedrooms into a master suite.

Not to mention, it also has an additional detached living space in the backyard that could be turned into an office, game room, or even potentially (if you added a small three-piece bathroom) a guest house.

Inside the adorable cottage, the seller has refinished the wood floors, added new designer light fixtures, added fresh neutral paint throughout, and new chrome hardware.

The kitchen got a complete redo, too, with new granite counters, new cabinets, new stainless steel appliances, and a new tile backsplash.

The electrical also got a complete redo, and there’s a new water heater, too. 

Curious about the schools? Garland ISD offers school choice throughout the district, which means you can check out schools and see which three are the best fit for your child. Garland ISD got a B grade from the state’s A-F grading system.

The Garland home is priced at $194,900, and is listed by Lindsay Elmquist with Michael C. Blatney, Broker. Want to see more? Click here.
