So, Midway Hollow, eh?
Mature trees? Check. Affordable homes in several price ranges? Check. Good schools? Check. Healthy, involved crime watch dedicated to reducing both nuisance and violent offenses in the neighborhood? Check. Close to good shopping? Check. Near a good airport but not in the flight path? Check. Plenty of diamonds-in-the-rough to diamonds-in-the-not-so-rough to make your own? Check, check.
Which is exactly why Nathan and Ann Jane Draper of Draper Construction chose the neighborhood. They’re on their second family home here, but a drive through the neighborhood (which is bordered by Walnut Hill Lane, Midway Road, Northwest Highway and Marsh Lane) reveals many homes the Drapers have built or remodeled.
“I comb the neighborhood looking for projects,” Nathan Draper said, standing in the kitchen of one of their most recent at 4069 Park Lane. “We like staying in this neighborhood. Prices are going up, we like the feel of the homes and the neighborhood.”
Draper is also in the middle of a remodel down to the studs with a second-floor addition on nearby Saranac Drive that will sell for the mid $700s. The home on Park Lane is listed at $549,250, and has four bedrooms and three baths. (more…)
