For this Inwood Home of the Week, we head 30 minutes southeast of Dallas to Kaufman, where you can find really well-built homes in the $200k-$300k range. Case in point, Jenny Capritta of REMAX DFW Associates‘ listing at 1300 Overlook Drive in Kaufman. It’s a three-bedroom, three-bath home with 2,342 square feet on a half-acre. For $289,500. (Yep, it deserved its own sentence.) A custom home with a great floorplan like this would go for at least $500k in North Dallas, if not double. Here’s why:
The first things you’ll notice when you walk in are the magnificent hardwood floors and step-down living areas that add visual interest and a sense of drama when you come in. Now bear with me as I explain the floor plan.
The formal living and dining area overlooks the sprawling half-acre backyard full of majestic Live Oaks and grassy lawn. The nice thing is that these formals are light, bright, and wide open so you can actually use this space.
Then step down into the second living area with hardwoods, ceiling beams, and adjacent dining area that leads to the kitchen. The galley kitchen has white painted cabinets, granite countertops, subway tile backsplash, extensive cabinet storage, and a solar tube for additional light.
The 1989-built home has a standing seam metal roof and new windows. Other big ticket items include new hot water heaters, zoned HVAC, and a full irrigation system for the 0.46 acre lot.
