What does $174,000 get you in the Alger Park/Ash Creek area? More than you’d expect!
Marketed by Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s Justin Easterling, 9829 Coldwater Circle is an amazing value. You get three bedrooms, two full baths, a cool backyard, and you’re super close to White Rock Lake. In case you missed it, this area is on the way up!
This home, built in 1955, has 1,560 square feet and has a great open floor plan. Of course, the paint is a little bold for my taste, so I’d probably hire someone to prime and repaint much of the house to help play up the gorgeous hardwood floors.
The kitchen has been completely redone with an eat-in island and all-new tile and cabinets. There are stainless steel appliances, too, including that great vent hood that adds a little flair. I also love that there are French doors leading outside the kitchen, and two large windows that let plenty of light into the area.
The master bedroom is, well, pretty basic. You can’t expect a whole lot from a post-war traditional, but it’s clean and the paint is neutral. There’s plenty of room for an oversized bed, too.
Both bathrooms have been remodeled with contemporary fixtures and tile — a great improvement if you have never seen the hideous Dal-Tile that many of these homes were burdened with. Often properties in this area have one full and one half baths, so it’s great to find a home with two full baths that look completely new inside.
The backyard, which is slightly terraced, has a great little patio and covered area. A creative gardener could do wonders for the landscaping!
