midway hollow homeThe Midway Hollow area is a perennial favorite for buyers looking for an established neighborhood inside the LBJ loop with personality, affordability, and proximity to central Dallas.

With about 2,200 houses, Midway Hollow fits the bill. Established in the 1950s, the neighborhood is full of ranch-style houses, cottages, and midcentury gems. Today’s Thursday Three Hundred at 9463 Green Terrace Dr. is a traditional ranch located on a secluded cul-de-sac in the heart of Midway Hollow (the boundaries are Marsh Lane on the west, Walnut Hill on the north, Midway on the east, and Northwest Highway on the south).

midway hollow homeAs Dallas Realtor Douglas Newby notes, “Midway Hollow has drawn young professionals and families from across the city who enjoy good architecture, large lots, tree shaded streets, and the vibrancy of a neighborhood being rejuvenated. Fine private academies such as Ursuline, Hockaday, and ESD are very close.”

From the manicured landscaping to the artfully appointed interior, this home feels polished and complete, with three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and 1,973 square feet. It is newly listed by Mark Storer at Allie Beth Allman & Associates for $398,000.

Green Terrace Front

I am seeing a lot of 1960s ranches lately that have interesting Midcentury Modern details. They have tons of charm and contemporary character, but none of the flat roofs and linear exterior details that we’d expect from a true Mid-Mod.

Green Terrace Dining

This house, a renovated ranch in Midway Hollow, is a perfect example of what I’m seeing lately. At 9450 Green Terrace you’ll find an adorable one-story that is just perfection. I love pretty much everything these sellers have done, from the gorgeous French doors in the living room, the high-gloss kitchen cabinets and concrete floors, the beautiful master bath, to the fabulous wallpapered accent wall in the dining room.

Green Terrace Living

This gorgeous Greenill Park home has formal living and dining rooms, two bedrooms, and two baths with 1,676 square feet and a two-car garage. If you’re not in love with this house already (and really, why wouldn’t you be?) you’ll just adore the backyard, which is manicured to perfection with an amazing back porch. It’s the cherry on top for this house, making it a great home for someone who loves to host parties.

Green Terrace Kitchen

Now the kitchen might be my favorite part of the home. I love that the sellers went with a butcher-block counter rather than the typical granite, because it really sets off the high-gloss white cabinets and high-end stainless appliances. The pendant lighting over the eat-in breakfast bar complements the kitchen perfectly, too.

With all of these incredible details, and an amazing location, this home is an absolute deal at $310,000. I am sure Virginia Cook agent Annette Rivera knows that, so if you head over to this amazing ranch for its open house on July 21, get ready to put in an offer!
