Splurge vs. Steal: Two Houses in Midway Hollow | CandysDirt.com

The newly updated ranch at 4130 Walnut Hill Ln. is our Midway Hollow splurge this week.

Splurge vs. Steal is a new feature on CandysDirt.com. Every week, we look at two properties that offer something in common, but are miles apart in their asking price.  

Midway Hollow is one of the fast-changing and transitioning areas in northwest Dallas. With about 2,600 houses built in the 1950s and 1960s, Midway Hollow is also attracting a lot of new construction. The boundaries Midway Road, Walnut Hill Lane, Marsh Lane, and Northwest Highway. With proximity to Love Field, the Tollway, and LBJ, it’s easy to get where you want to go from Midway Hollow.

Our Splurge vs. Steal today looks at two original neighborhood homes, each zoned for excellent elementary schools. The splurge is a ranch-style home, the steal more of a cottage. They’re both pretty fab. Let’s take a look.

midway hollow midcentury

Midway Hollow is a neighborhood in transition, with a lot of fabulous new construction among the 2,600 or so homes in the area. I’ve got a listing to share with you today rebuilt from the studs up in 2014, a midcentury modern design with elegant features, open spaces, and extended sight lines. This home exudes atomic-era style married with modern amenities that appeal to today’s buyers.

Located at 9831 Ontario Ln., this newly listed Midway Hollow midcentury will wow you with polished concrete floors, great flow, and high-end amenities. I think you could have marvelous parties here, especially with the backyard oasis, complete with a contemporary swimming pool and deck.

“This home feels bigger than its 2,874 square feet because of the open floorplan and higher-angled ceilings,” said listing agent Lee Lamont with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. “The kitchen, in particular, is a huge selling feature with European-style flat-front cabinets and a modern, sleek look.”

This home has four bedrooms, three full bathrooms, one half bath, and two living areas, in the Glenridge Estates area of Midway Hollow. I’d love to take you on a tour!

Neighborhoods can evolve rapidly, and we’re always on the lookout for the hidden gems that are in the process of turning over and becoming the next hot place to buy.

On our radar now? Homes close to the Santa Fe Trail in East Dallas.  It’s a hop, skip, and jump from Lakewood, Hollywood Heights, and White Rock Lake, right on the Santa Fe Trail, and zoned for Lakewood Elementary, which earns a “10” out of 10 from greatschools.org.

We’ve found an incredible listing at 310 S. Glasgow Dr., a new construction just listed for $599,000. With almost 3,000 square feet, designer finishes, and sleek, transitional style, this same house would be priced at $849K if it were just two blocks away, closer to Lakewood shopping center, said listing agent Lee Lamont with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.

“This house and several others nearby were just built by BCH Development, who have been in Lakewood and the Park Cities for 20 years,” Lamont said. “This price is unheard of in East Dallas for a new home with a full builder’s warranty sophisticated spaces, high-end finishes throughout, and remarkable efficiency with foam wall insulation and low-E windows.”

Like the home next door that just went under contract, this home has four bedrooms, three full bathrooms, one half bath, an office, two living areas, and 2,938 square feet on two stories. Let’s take a look!
