Why not Woodbridge? Our latest Splurge vs. Steal puts the spotlight on two of the area’s best, tucked away in the relatively quiet and peaceful Lake Highlands neighborhood you never knew you needed. For those who don’t know, Woodbridge sits near the border of Richardson and is roughly defined by Audelia Road to the west, Forest Lane to the south, Shadow Way to the north, and railroad tracks to the east.

Jake’s Hamburgers and Casa Linda Bakery are local favorites. And on any given day you’ll find patrons having a grand ol’ time at The String Bean Restaurant or sipping a cold one over at Spring Creek Barbecue. There’s even an Alamo Drafthouse for date night and Sprouts Farmers Market for fresh produce nearby. But what really makes Woodbridge stand out is the price. Homes here are lovingly maintained and set back on larger lots. Most kids go to Richardson ISD schools, and you’ll find families and couples enjoying long walks with their dogs and strollers amidst lush greenbelts and parks.

With so much to love and so few homes currently on the market in Woodbridge, we couldn’t resist sharing two of its prized offerings. Both homes are ideally located and tastefully updated but with price points that are miles apart. Which would you choose, the Jackson Creek Splurge or the Oak Highland Steal? We would love to hear in the comments.

Midway HollowHow hot is Midway Hollow still? We put a pin in two listings for this week’s Splurge Vs. Steal last week, and by this weekend, both had offers.

So back to the drawing board.

Luckily, there are homes in all sizes and price ranges still in this tree-lined neighborhood that boasts three terrific public elementary school options (including one school — Walnut Hill Elementary — that is in contention to be a National Blue Ribbon school). The neighborhood is hot because not only is the dirt still a relative bargain, but because the neighbors frequently band together whenever it’s needed, mature trees are abundant, and it’s an extremely family-friendly spot.

So which Midway Hollow home will you choose this week — our tall new construction Splurge, or our cozy original 1950s Midcentury Bungalow?  (more…)
