723 Town Creek Drive has great curb appeal

With all the dust stirred up by the almost assured redevelopment of the nearby Golf Club of Dallas, it’s time to look at what’s available in the area that’s almost assured to be better built than what’s coming.  No particular slam on Huffines, but newer construction isn’t as solid since lightweight methods cropped up in the 1970s.

It’s also interesting to see what’s just across I-35E from my Southern Dallas Buyer’s Guide series.  Here, the neighborhoods have names — look for community names like Polk Terrace, Wheatland Hills, Beckley Heights and Woodland Canyon.  Many of the homes, like this one, are flips, which tells you there is opportunity and that it will begin to move east across I-35E. Glen Oaks is just north and east of the Golf Club of Dallas and this home is a block from the Mark Twain Leadership Vanguard school. If the kid gets straight A’s, you can fling ‘em over to the Bahama Beach Waterpark just west as a reward.

Head southeast a short jog and you’re in the much more affordable and super charmed neighborhood of Beckley Club Estates.
