Mid-Cities living never looked so good as in the Hurst house we’ve discovered with big style and a budget-friendly price tag. 

Located at 725 Thousand Oaks Dr., this house is better than new, recently updated for a total reimagination. It has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living areas, and 1,875 square feet on one story, built in 1965. 

“It’s been redone from the studs, so the floorplan has changed and created an open concept look, so it’s a lot more modern look,” said listing agent Bernice Maez with Vivo Realty. “It’s also in the attendance zone for HEB schools, which is a big draw for families.” 

We’ve got some “before” photos that show just how massive of a transformation this home underwent. Jump to see them all.
