Up-and-coming North Dallas Neighborhood Offers Sweet Style with Updated Home | CandysDirt.com

If you’re looking for updated style, a comfortable floorplan, and an affordable price tag on a family home in Dallas, you have to look hard, act fast, and be decisive. 

The house at 13525 Brookgreen Dr. may inspire you to do just that. Listed three days ago, this Spring Valley Park home is in an up-and-coming part of North Dallas near Coit and Alpha roads. The flip added lots of contemporary elements and opened up the floorplan to create something imminently livable and decidedly lovely. 

This is our Tuesday Two Hundred and it has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living areas, and 1,760 square feet on one story, built in 1957.

Before and After. I’ll let you decide which is which

Back in March, I wrote about a condo at the Athena that I called a “dump” that hadn’t seen better days in decades.  It was a bastardized two-bedroom, two bathroom on the ninth floor with 1,770 square feet listed for $249,900 with HOA dues of $1,037 that include utilities, TV and internet.  It sold pretty quickly and immediately went under the knife.

Flash forward to last Friday and the unit re-hit the MLS after its nearly stem-to-stern renovation and reconfiguration.  This time it’s listed with James Glynn with JG Real Estate for $425,000. Yes, that’s a big jump, but as you’ll see, a bundle has been spent.  The owners intended to live in the unit, but circumstances changed and so now it’s a flip … but definitely with flip-plus quality.
