Burleson might best be known as the home of Grammy winner and talk show host Kelly Clarkson, but it’s also home to some great, affordable housing stock. This Weekend One Hundred selection at 809 Southwest Southridge, Burleson, is simple but has all the things a small family needs.

It’s more likely to be described as “cozy and cute” than “sprawling and ornate.” But it could be a diamond in the rough. After all, how often does one come across a three-bedroom home for $129,000?

And while the home is modest at 1,018 square feet, it’s on a 7,000-plus-square-foot lot. It’s in a good school district and is close to schools, parks, and the Burleson Recreation Center. It also has a lot of updates, so before you swipe left or whatever the kids do these days, let’s take a look inside.

All The Frills

The kitchen is actually pretty stunning. Realtor April Clements with Keller Williams Realty Arlington noted that the house has been well-maintained and boasts granite kitchen countertops and stainless steel appliances.

“This one will not last long,” Clements said.

The one-story home has new paint inside and out, new tile floors, refinished hardwood flooring, and an open living room with lots of natural light.

School Days

Your kid is not guaranteed the vocal prowess of “The Voice” judge Kelly Clarkson, but he or she will get to attend Burleson High School, where Clarkson graduated in 2000.

Burleson ISD, in Johnson County, scored an overall B from Txschools.gov, with B’s in student achievement and closing the gaps. The district earned a 76 out of 100 in school progress for the only C on the report card.

The higher ranks were earned in the overall category and student achievement.
