Mid-Cities living never looked so good as in the Hurst house we’ve discovered with big style and a budget-friendly price tag. 

Located at 725 Thousand Oaks Dr., this house is better than new, recently updated for a total reimagination. It has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living areas, and 1,875 square feet on one story, built in 1965. 

“It’s been redone from the studs, so the floorplan has changed and created an open concept look, so it’s a lot more modern look,” said listing agent Bernice Maez with Vivo Realty. “It’s also in the attendance zone for HEB schools, which is a big draw for families.” 

We’ve got some “before” photos that show just how massive of a transformation this home underwent. Jump to see them all.

“You won’t find a better finish-out for the price, and the seller spared no expense attending to every detail,” said Jason Saucedo with the Hewitt & Habgood Group with Dave Perry-Miller Intown. “From the moment you walk in, you feel like you’ve entered a high-end hotel suite, lush with fresh floral designs created by the owner herself — you can tell that she took the same amount of care and creativity to create a home as elegant and vibrant as her flowers.”
