WoodrowHave Woodrow Wilson Feeder Pattern dreams, but not a Lakewood budget? Fear not, this week’s Weekend One Hundred is not only a friendly price point, but it’s close to tons of amenities — and it’s in the feeder pattern you desire.

It’s not uncommon to hear that house hunters in Dallas are looking for homes in the Woodrow Wilson High School feeder pattern — it’s known for its academics, it’s fine arts programs, and its athletics, as well as its strong alumni and parent presence.

Suffice to say, if you’ve never checked out Woodrow Wilson High, you owe it to yourself to investigate, because there are tons of reasons it’s one of the most sought-after public high schools.

But it also is home to some of the more spendy price points in Dallas, which is why we snapped up this two-bedroom, two bath condo at 5076 Matilda Street to show our readers the second we saw it. (more…)

condoThere’s this sweet spot in Dallas, if you’re looking for a good commute, access to shopping, dining, and good schools  — and it’s bordered by Preston, Montfort, LBJ, and Keller Springs Road. It’s also a great place to find a condo or townhome for a terrific price point.

Within these boundaries, you are near the shopping and dining along Belt Line, the Hillcrest High School feeder pattern, and easy access to LBJ and the tollway. (more…)

brutonIt might just be downright serendipitous, but when our original Weekend One Hundred went under contract, we found this pretty little piece of heaven in the Riverway Estates-Bruton Terrace neighborhood — a mere 10 minutes after it was listed.

The three-bedroom, two bath home is located at 10316 Carolina Oaks Drive, and has been impeccably well-maintained, and priced at $132,000, it’s also the perfect property for a family looking to purchase a first home.

Light, bright, and airy, the open concept home was built in 1999. The galley kitchen is open to a dining area and the living room beyond (with a fireplace to boot). There’s a separate laundry closet, too. (more…)

MidcenturyWe have a lot of love for a well-done, realistically priced three-bedroom, one bath home in Dallas, especially if it’s on a great lot. So when we found this adorable Midcentury Cottage for this week’s Weekend One Hundred, we knew we had to share.

See, a good 3/1 on a decent-sized lot with a terrific price point is worth its weight in well, money. You can buy now, and after you’ve built up some quick equity (because hey, it’s Dallas) or save, you’ll have enough to add a second bathroom and nice closet and turn one of those bedrooms into a true master suite.

And our house this week, located at 8232 Rayville Drive, is one of those houses. Three bedrooms, one bath, just over 1,000 square feet, and sits on a 7,841 square foot lot.

Midcentury RanchIt’s not far from White Rock, an easy hop to I-635, is zoned for a great elementary school, and this Midcentury Ranch has been completely updated.

We’d also be remiss if we didn’t point out that the price point for this home at 2314 Winthrop Drive is terrific for a starter home in Dallas.

It’s a three-bedroom, one bath home, with 1,180 square feet of space. As we’ve mentioned before, 3/1’s are actually great to start out in. A single person can buy, meet that significant other, and even have a kiddo and live quite comfortably in the home for a fair amount of time before you have an air traffic control situation with that one bathroom.

And with 7,492 square feet, you could have enough room to add a second bathroom at some point, too.

GarlandWhen Modtown Realty tagged us on Instagram this week to tell us about their latest listings, a certain four-bedroom, two-bath home in Garland with a terrific price point had us intrigued.

We told them to give us more details — and found that the home move-in ready and near enough to 635 to make it ideal for commuting. The 1,645 square foot home at 2402 Royal Dr. in Garland was built in 1961 and has clearly been well-maintained since.

Oak Cliff

Nowadays, it’s getting harder and harder to hear the Oak Cliff “Oh” — that pause you used to get when you mentioned you lived in Oak Cliff, or wanted to go to Oak Cliff. In the year 2019, Oak Cliff is a highly sought after spot, and while living near Bishop Arts, Kessler Park, and other neighborhoods might be out of your price range, Cedar Crest is a great neighborhood full of charming homes.

We’ve told you about Cedar Crest before — a well-established neighborhood close to downtown, with a busy neighborhood association and the historic Cedar Crest Golf Course. It’s also home to a more affordable pocket of Oak Cliff, as this home at 2207 Alabama Avenue confirms.

Grand PrairieFor this week’s Weekend One Hundred, we trek to Grand Prairie, where we found a Midcentury Traditional that puts the cherry on top of a move-in sundae — it’s super close to the new IKEA, the mecca for anyone who moves into a new home.

I mean, how convenient is that?

This three-bedroom, two bath home is located at 305 West Springdale Lane, and is also within walking distance to Barbara Bush Elementary. It has nearly 2,000 square feet of space, and that includes a garage conversion that provides some flex space for a den, playroom, or even office.
