Hurst is the featured city for this week’s Suburb Sunday, and for good reason. It’s been ranked one of the best places to raise a family for its stellar H-E-B ISD schools, safe community, and central location for commuters. With its nearby neighbors Euless and Bedford, Hurst makes up the popular mid-cities often referred to as H-E-B. Residents love the abundance of shopping and stores near Northeast Mall and throughout the city, but with a small town feel — the best of both worlds, really. Here are three great homes in the $250k-400k range that we found in Hurst. Which is your favorite?

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.

Andy and Ashley Williams took on a Hurst fixer that needed a lot of love in this week’s “Flip or Flop Fort Worth” (photo courtesy HGTV).

I have to say that one of my favorite things about doing these “Flip or Flop Fort Worth” recaps has been getting all this great feedback from readers — especially the requests to help suss out what finishes were used in specific projects.

Last week, we switched gears and recapped the first episode of the last season of “Fixer Upper,” and we got some great questions (we’ll be circling back at the end of the season to recap the finale).

I’m still running down a couple of questions from last week — I’m working on that wallpaper, Jennifer — but I’ve been able to find either the exact item or something that can help duplicate the look (although I’ll keep looking, of course). (more…)
