The three-bedroom, two-bathroom home at 316 North Winding Oaks Drive, in Wylie, is all about open space for family time.

Previous owners wanted to paint the town red – or at least the interior of the home – so a shabby chic barn motif could be extended throughout. But before potential buyers get too excited about a little house on the prairie, they should know there’s more than what is shown at face value.

Built in 1985, the 1,796-square-foot abode has an open, spacious family room with a wood-burning fireplace. An oversized garage has extra space for storage.

An enclosed patio and mudroom make outdoor gatherings a must and encourage children and pets to get outdoors. A game room offers space for entertaining or for the kids to veg out after their homework is done.

Speaking of homework, the area is zoned for T.F. Birmingham Elementary School, Davis Intermediate School and Wylie East High School.

Fix ’er up

Listed at $199,000, this special home on 0.29 acres has some neat features, but could also be easily upgraded.

“It’s priced well below market to provide room for the new owner to do minor cosmetic updates if needed,” said Realtor Cindy Davis with Coldwell Banker Apex Realtors.

While the lower price tag appeals to some, others prefer the repairs be done up front, Davis explained.

“It’s a cute house but it’s priced where it is because it needs a little work – some cosmetic, a little bit of foundation,” she said.

Bright lights, big city

Downtown Wylie isn’t the first hot spot that comes to mind when people are relocating to the Dallas-Fort Worth area – but maybe it should be. It’s got heart. This gathering spot also has art, ice cream parlors, restaurants, coffee shops, and a wine bar.

The best part is that it’s walking distance from the Winding Oaks home.

Downtown Wylie is reminiscent of the old downtowns where families used to go for a stroll on a Friday night. Music festivals, carnivals, car shows, and other gatherings are frequently held there.

Cindy Davis with Coldwell Banker Apex Realtors listed 316 North Winding Oaks Drive, Wylie, for $199,000.
