Midway HollowIt wasn’t but maybe four or five years ago that you could get a three-bedroom, one bath house in Midway Hollow for around $150,000ish. And while that’s not the case anymore, there are still homes to be had in the under $300,000 price range that place you in the hot neighborhood.

And for those that are unfamiliar, Midway Hollow has become hot for several reasons — you still have great tree-lined streets in a walkable, friendly neighborhood, with a robust crime watch group and an extended neighborhood patrol, three great Dallas ISD elementary schools serve the neighborhood, and it’s close to so much, including plenty of grocery options, dining, and recreation.

Midway HollowMidway Hollow is hot — even with all the new construction, it’s managed to maintain the things that make people want to live there — the friendly neighbors, the tree-lined streets, and the access to great schools.

So when we came across this three-bedroom, two bath home on Dunhaven Road for rent, we knew we should share.

Realtor Caren Clemmer co-owns the property, and you can tell that as a real estate professional, she knew what was needed to make the home ready for renters — a 2014 remodel has the bright, light 1,350 square foot abode boasting refinished hardwood floors, new tile flooring in the kitchen, new appliances, and updated bathrooms.

I will never forget the time I first looked at homes in this part of town, Midway Hollow, on Van Ness Lane, to be exact.

A Realtor told me that this was the kind of neighborhood where you come outside and see the elves dancing with little stars all around. This was in 1980 and I was in my early 20s, new to Dallas, and house hunting.

I had to agree with her: Midway Hollow was idyllic then, as it is now.

To put a more modern spin on it, the neighborhood around 3719 Van Ness is almost a replica of Ponyland, or maybe Paradise Estate. Any minute I expect to see Twilight Sparkle, Spike, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Rarity, Applejack, and Fluttershy frolicking in the green grass.

This wonderful neighborhood has cradled this brick home since 1952, elves, ponies, and people. (more…)

Sam Sawyer with Compass has listed 3957 Gaspar Drive for $479,000.

If you’re a young family or first-time home buyer Midway Hollow is the place to be! And today, we put the spotlight on an updated traditional in the neighborhood that’s an absolute must-see. Perfectly nestled on Gaspar Drive, this three-bedroom, two-bathroom charmer affords all the character you’re looking for, but with plenty of contemporary touches for modern day. With an asking price of $479,000, this is a Friday Four Hundred you’ll want to see.

“Midway Hollow continues to be one of the hottest neighborhoods for younger families and first time home buyers, and this property is move-in ready for a new owner,” says listing agent Sam Sawyer of Compass. “The attached two-car garage is a big plus to me as well. The location of the entire neighborhood is so close to so many great Dallas attractions and the purchase price point is super attractive for younger buyers!”

Charm And Curb Appeal

From the outside, the ranch-style home has curb appeal for days. A candy-apple-red front door and classic shutters offset neutral brick, met by pops of vibrant green hedges. The result? A cheery, welcoming façade that just feels like home. And Sam is right — the location, price point, and two-car garage are enough to make our ears perk up! But it’s the light and bright interior of this Midway Hollow gem that really gets us excited.

Midway HollowBecause of its size, Midway Hollow is still one of those neighborhoods that probably has something for just about anyone. Bordered by Walnut Hill, Midway Road, Northwest Highway, and Marsh Lane, you can find homes in price points as low as $250,000 all the way to the millions.

This week, we’ve found three houses in three different price points in the bustling, hot neighborhood of Midway Hollow — all having open houses this week.

Get ready northwest Dallas. 8:00 a.m. Wednesday morning, September 5, Central Market opened its newest location at Midway Road and Northwest Highway in Dallas. The store opening marks the company’s 10th location in Texas and third in the City of Dallas.

And this store is so much more than a grocery store.

Central Market is the luxury grocer division of H-E-B, founded in Austin in 1994 and often called “an amusement park for food lovers.” Over the past 24 years, Central Market has expanded to all major Texas Cities — Dallas (now three), Fort Worth, Plano, Southlake, Austin, Houston and San Antonio.

“We’re thrilled to open the doors of our newest location in this vibrant area of Dallas,” said Stephen Butt, president of H-E-B/Central Market Division, who was on hand for the Tuesday night neighborhood opening party and participated in a lot of the pre-opening events. “We’ve heard from loyal northwest Dallas customers for years who have asked for a Central Market location in closer proximity to their neighborhoods. The corner of Midway and Northwest Highway has long been a highly desirable location we have had our eye on for many years. Our team is excited to serve our friends and customers in the Bluffview, Devonshire, Preston Hollow, Midway Hollow, Greenway Parks and surrounding neighborhoods.”

The existing 42,000 square-foot store at Midway Road and Northwest Highway was once a Skaggs Alpha-Beta, then an Albertsons back when I shopped there. (We lived just north of Northwest Highway east of Inwood, and I frequented the area for shopping.) The store became Sun Fresh Market for a bit, but it has undergone a wall-to-wall gutting for its Central Market unveiling. The remodel took two years.  The new store is stunning and will create a “triangle” of luxury food convenience for Uptown, Park Cities, Preston Hollow and North Dallas neighborhoods, cutting an east-west swath from Greenville Avenue to Midway Road.
