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.

In our quest to find affordable homes in Dallas-Fort Worth, we’ve found ourselves in Fort Worth’s Wedgwood neighborhood — with a home that has loads of updates and upgrades and plenty of amenities within a quick walk or drive.

Wedgwood is bounded by Granbury Road, Altamesa Boulevard, McCart Avenue, Westcreek Drive, and Interstate 20. It’s parceled into smaller enclaves like Wedgwood South, Wedgwood East, Wedgwood Square, and Wedgwood — which is where our listing this week sits at 6804 Lancelot Court.

This 1975 home shares its all brick construction, attached garage and Ranch design with the rest of the homes in the neighborhood. But the three-bedroom, two bath home has been the subject of some serious updates and upgrades, making its 1,849 square feet feel much fresher than its “Starsky & Hutch” era counterparts. (more…)

Cedar CrestDays on market for move-in ready homes in the $100,000 to $200,000 range around North Texas are tiny little pockets of time, blink-and-you’ll-miss-them openings. So when this Cedar Crest cutie landed in our inbox this week, we knew it was our next Weekend One Hundred.

And we also know you should probably shake a leg if you’re looking for something in that price range — Cedar Crest is a great neighborhood full of charming homes.

A well-established neighborhood close to downtown with a bustling neighborhood association and the Cedar Crest Golf Course, which hosted the first PGA tour in 1927.

“For decades the Cedar Crest neighbors have demonstrated pride in home ownership, which is discernible by many of the uniquely designed custom built homes,” the association’s website said. “The community is well noted for community and political involvement and has produced many business owners, educators, and dignitaries.” (more…)

scenic bluffThe neighborhood of Scenic Bluff has been described as a great neighborhood for new buyers looking for proximity to downtown and the Stockyards, but also want greenspace, yards, and a bit more privacy than the average apartment provides.

Which is why this adorable cottage at 2521 Dalford Street is a perfect example of what you can find in the Scenic Bluff neighborhood. It’s just a quick scoosh from Oakhurst Scenic Drive, where you can enjoy gorgeous greenspace overlooking the Trinity River, with its walking area and views of the city.

In the case of this two-bedroom, one bath home built in 1941, the sellers have done much to retain the original charm but still appeal to modern needs. The hardwoods throughout are original to the home, and there are original built-ins and moldings throughout as well.
