Just 15 minutes from “Dallas proper,” this Weekend One Hundred in Mesquite will give you all the feels for a price you can live with. First of all, it’s got four bedrooms, two full bathrooms (none of that half-bath nonsense, thank you very much), and a two-car garage in the Town East Estates area.

Just 15 minutes from “Dallas proper,” this Weekend One Hundred in Mesquite will give you all the feels for a price you can live with.

First of all, it’s got four bedrooms, two full bathrooms (none of that half-bath nonsense, thank you very much), and a two-car garage in the Town East Estates area.

“It’s a beautiful and affordable home in a quiet neighborhood,” said listing agent Zach Faris. “This home is ready to move into; it just needs new owners.”

Out With The Old, In With The New

Built in 1965, this home is not new, but it does have plenty of updates. There’s a new roof, new flooring throughout, tiled bathrooms, and fresh paint.

“The kitchen is loaded with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and a new backsplash,” Faris said.

Resting on a 0.168-acre lot, the home boasts 1,603 square feet and a big backyard for neighborhood barbecues or playing Frisbee with the family dog.

So, why, you ask, will this particular house give you all the feels?

Because it’s got heart. It’s got that horizontal layout reminiscent of the Brady Bunch house, the house you grew up in, or Grandma’s house. It’s not too fancy, but it’s practical, in a nice neighborhood, and close to good schools.

School Days

The area is zoned for Mesquite ISD, and all the public schools are less than two miles from home.

Tosch Elementary School serves Pre-K through sixth grade. It received an overall rating of C from Txschools.gov and C’s in student achievement, school progress, and closing the gaps.

McDonald Middle School has a student base of sixth- through eighth-graders. The campus earned an overall C rating, with a C in student achievement and a D in closing the gaps, which measures “how well different populations of students in a district are performing.” McDonald netted a B in school progress and scored exceptionally well in academic achievement in science.

North Mesquite High School racked up B’s across the board.

If those don’t quite make the grade, several private schools – including Dallas Christian School, Meadow Oaks Academy, and Appleseed Academy – also are nearby.

Zach Faris with Real Estate Formation listed 2211 Luau St., Mesquite, for $194,900.
