As the cooler weather sets in and it becomes a little more apparent that fall is in full swing, a three-bedroom home near downtown Rockwall is waiting patiently to charm its new owner. The space is cozy at 1,428 square feet, but what it lacks in dimension, it makes up for in pleasant functionality, says Dixie Miller of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage-Rockwall.
If you haven’t already envisioned that front porch display of the kids’ carved pumpkin, we’ll give you a minute.
For Those About To Rock
Rockwall is an up-and-coming city, with country lakeside life and modern homes on sprawling acreage. A three-bedroom, one-bathroom starter home in the $100,000s is a rare find.
History has it that the community was discovered in 1851 when settlers digging wells found an underground wall made of – you guessed it – rock. Since then the city of about 40,000 has been one of the fastest-growing in Texas.
“Charm and character abound in this historic home located right in the heart of downtown Rockwall,” Miller says, noting that the 1990-built house is close to restaurants, retail, and parks. “Rich hand-scraped hardwoods, warm paint, and an abundance of windows are just a few of the many features found in this darling home.”
There’s a spacious “bonus room,” a wooden deck in the back, and a fire pit for outdoor entertaining. Anything that won’t fit in the interior space can go in a workshop-storage building out back.
Hitting The Books
The home is walking distance to the brand new Howard Dobbs Elementary School and is less than two miles from Herman E. Utley Middle School and Rockwall High School. Rockwall ISD scored an A in Txschools.gov ratings, with an A in student achievement, and B’s in school progress and closing the gaps.
