You can get a lot for a little in a best-kept secret on the outskirts of the city.

Sachse, Texas, population 25,000, sits in Collin and Dallas counties, off Texas Highway 78.

It’s about a mile from the President George Bush Turnpike and Firewheel Town Center, with residents attending schools in both Wylie and Garland districts.

While it’s not necessarily known for its real estate, maybe that’s because those who live there like the quiet small-town vibe and would rather not call a lot of attention to themselves.

This home at 7112 Vista Hill Lane brings a wow factor to the cotton farming town and came on the market last week at $350,000.

There’s A Lot To Love

Built in 1999, this home in the Woodbridge Golf Club community features a pool and spa. And with five bedrooms and three and one-half bathrooms, there’s plenty of space for a large family.

But wait, there’s more.

A Flagstone extended patio and beautifully landscaped backyard – with gutters and sprinklers – ensure that the kids burn off their energy and friends are welcome for outdoor barbecues this summer.

This 3,183-square-foot home sits on an 8,000-plus-square-foot lot, so plan to spend a lot of time in the great outdoors.

This Vista Hill venue has a formal dining room and upstairs “extra” room that could be used for a playroom, game room, or movie theater.  

The kitchen has a large island with lots of cabinets opening up to a living area with wood floors, fireplace, and large windows bringing in natural light.

The first-floor master suite and bath has dual sinks, separate vanities, an updated shower, and jetted tub. Walk-in closets, too? Got you covered.

New carpet was installed just last month, and the roof was updated in 2016.

What’s In The ’Hood

The city of Sachse was settled in the late 1800s and was one of the first places in the country to have a cotton mill and cotton gin. It is not Deep Ellum or Highland Park, and its residents wouldn’t have it any other way.

There are not a lot of posh museums or night clubs or date night venues, and that’s just fine. There are plenty of places to eat, buy groceries, and pick up items for school.

Students in this particular area of Sachse attend Wylie ISD schools. Dual credit programs also are gaining popularity in the area; a new Collin College campus is set to open in Wylie in the fall.

Not that you’d need to leave your amazing house on Vista Hill, but if you do, you’re within walking distance to six community pools, parks, ponds, and walking trails.

Agent Laurie Steenis of Keller Williams Realty Dallas Preston Road listed 7112 Vista Hill Lane, Sachse, for $350,000.
