How hot is Midway Hollow still? We put a pin in two listings for this week’s Splurge Vs. Steal last week, and by this weekend, both had offers.
So back to the drawing board.
Luckily, there are homes in all sizes and price ranges still in this tree-lined neighborhood that boasts three terrific public elementary school options (including one school — Walnut Hill Elementary — that is in contention to be a National Blue Ribbon school). The neighborhood is hot because not only is the dirt still a relative bargain, but because the neighbors frequently band together whenever it’s needed, mature trees are abundant, and it’s an extremely family-friendly spot.
So which Midway Hollow home will you choose this week — our tall new construction Splurge, or our cozy original 1950s Midcentury Bungalow?
New Construction Modern With Room to Flex
This Modern home at 4053 Lively Lane has an open floor plan perfect for entertaining, and just in case you want even more room, you can walk right out to a backyard oasis complete with a pool and an 856 square foot cabana (perfect for outdoor entertaining, or even a guest house).
Inside, four bedrooms provide plenty of family and guest quarters, and four-and-a-half bathrooms give plenty of space for everyone’s morning ablutions. The 3,900 square foot home feels even more substantial thanks to high ceilings and plenty of natural light throughout the home, as well as conscientious choices in finishes, flooring, and paint.
Well-kept Midcentury Bungalow With a Big Backyard
This recently-remodeled Midcentury Bungalow at 3822 Cortez Drive is going to make someone a great downsized home or even first home, with three bedrooms and two baths and 1,514 square feet of space.
In that remodel, it’s benefitting from hand-scraped hardwoods throughout the open living area and a gas fireplace. The kitchen has quartz countertops and stainless steel appliances, as well as new fixtures.
The third bedroom with en-suite bath is a new addition, as is a utility room. The backyard has gotten a new fence, and is large enough that you could even consider another addition at a later date if you wanted a second living area.
