Houses in the $200,000 range are getting more rare in Dallas and when they exist, are shrinking in size. But there are lovely exceptions around the city. 

We’ve found a house with over 2,000 square feet sitting on 0.33 acres in Northwest Dallas for $299,000, reduced from $335,000 when it was first listed in July. Our Tuesday Two Hundred at 3220 Northaven Ct. sits on a cul-de-sac lot with fresh landscaping and recently installed irrigation. The interior is renovated with lots of amenities, including dual masters. 

This home has five bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 2,061 square feet on one story, built in 1960. Bonus for families: it is in the attendance zone for Degolyer Elementary, which scores an 8 out of 10 from greatschools.org.
