I can’t help but get excited when I come across a Weekend One Hundred that’s so great, I kind of want it for myself.

This home at 10419 Fern Drive, Dallas, is listed at $199,900 and it’s cute, clean, and just what a young family might need, in a great location near White Rock Lake.

Listed by Sam Bullard of Bullard Jones Group, the house is 1,128 square feet with three bedrooms and two full bathrooms. It’s one of the last neighborhoods – Centerville Terrace – where a home can be found for less than $200,000, Bullard said.

The well-maintained home has numerous updates including the roof, high-efficiency HVAC system, second bathroom addition, fresh paint, and cedar shutters and accents. New flooring was recently installed in the kitchen, bathroom, and utility room.

The rest of the house features hand-scraped hardwoods. A TV nook and surround-sound speakers are mounted in the ceiling. Come on, you know that anything that makes it look like Dad has technological street cred is a plus.

The master bathroom features a walk-in closet, which may be the norm for a lot of Dallas real estate, but it’s a perk for us middle-classers. And as if that wasn’t enough to pique your interest, a new double-pane window was installed in the master bedroom earlier this month.

Neighborhood Nightlife

Centerville Terrace “features cozy homes that are very reasonably priced” in a well-established community, according to neighborhoods.com. Most of the homes are traditional style and built in the 1950s.

The Fern Drive home is near the trendy Lower Greenville area and just a mile from fun spots like Hypnotic Donuts, 20 Feet Seafood Joint, and Goodfriend Beer Garden & Burger House.

The Dallas Arboretum also is nearby, answering all your family’s needs for holiday photos and events.

Rainbow Vomit (it’s an art museum, people), Museum of Memories and Deep Ellum Arts Festival also are in your ’hood.

School Days

Schools in the Casa View area of East Dallas include Reinhardt Elementary, W. H. Gaston Middle School, and Bryan Adams High School. The high school is named for William Jennings Bryan Adams, a former Dallas ISD Board of Education secretary who died in 1955. It has no connection to the singer Bryan Adams, who was born two years after the school’s inception – but if you want to tell your friends that “Heaven” and “Summer of ’69” were penned on the 50-yard line at the high school stadium, you go right ahead.

Reinhardt Elementary scored a B overall from txschools.gov. Gaston Middle School picked up a C overall but did well in school progress, which shows how well schools perform over time and how that growth compares to similar schools.

Bryan Adams, often referred to as “B.A.” by those who go there, earned a B overall rating.
