Remodeled Ranch in Midway Hollow Sings a Siren Song for Homebuyers

Midway Hollow is a fast-changing neighborhood in Northwest Dallas and we’ve found an incredible renovation in the area that sings a siren song for buyers. 

The ranch at 3742 Matador Dr. features super sweet curb appeal and a bright, open floorplan. It has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living areas, and 1,706 square feet, built in 1951. Let’s take a look at our Thursday Three Hundred before someone snatches it up.

Our Inwood House of the Week is a charming Midway Hollow Hill Country Contemporary at 4040 Davila Drive built for Robert and Jennifer Black in 2008 by Herman Darden Custom Homes.

The Blacks are Midway Hollow pioneers. They bought their first home in the neighborhood 13 years ago.

“It was a 1948 ranch,” Jennifer said. “When we discovered the neighborhood, we loved it immediately. We bought that house and lived in it until our son was about a year and a half old. Then the teardowns started. We knew we were outgrowing the house, we wanted another child, and we knew we did not want to leave Midway Hollow.”

The couple also knew what they did want.

Buyers are craving more modern, livable homes, and our Inwood Home of the Week is a sleek, sexy Midway Hollow modern at 3815 Valley Ridge Road just listed by Clay Stapp.

Holz & Stein recently completed this beauty. I was not familiar with the company, so I did a bit of research on them. Suddenly it made perfect sense that I was enamored of this house. The CandysDirt.com team recently returned from Boot Ranch in Fredericksburg where I was taken with the style of the homes — deeply rooted in original German architecture.

Our Inwood House of the week is a Midway Hollow contemporary designed by the award-winning architecture firm of Larsen and Pedigo. This one story 4,500-square-foot home on just under a half acre is beyond stunning.

I cannot imagine a better house for art collectors, people who love to entertain, or even families. One-level living is in.  If you want to climb stairs, hit the Stairmaster at the gym and make those steps count. If you have kids, you know as well as I do there is no such thing as an elegant, architecturally sensitive baby gate! Yes, one-story living is the wave of the future, and it does not get better than 4139 Rosa Road. (more…)

If a town hitting its peak is a boomtown, would a neighborhood like Midway Hollow, with its bustling mix of newcomers and longtime residents, be considered a boom-hood?

There are 2,600 homes in the neighborhood, which is bordered by Midway Road, Walnut Hill Lane, Marsh Lane, and Northwest Highway.

Midway Hollow’s ties to Dallas history go back to the time when Texas was its own country — and you can still see them today when you drive down Lively Lane, Marsh Lane, or Coppedge Lane, all of which were named after the early settlers who farmed the land. (more…)

The 2017 Modern Mile Home Tour is fast upon us! And to give you a little taste of what’s to come, here’s a look at the Modern Mile Bonus Home. Designed by Texas starchitect Arch B. Swank, Jr., 3229 Regent Drive is a work of art with an unforgettable history.

Once nearly lost to neglect and disrepair, a couple of caring homeowners brought it back from the brink, allowing it to become the jewel of this year’s Modern Mile Home Tour. Built to be featured in the 1959 Parade of Homes, this midcentury marvel was originally home to a NASA design engineer present at Mission Control during the moon landing. Talk about space age!

From the spot-on authentic and reproduction furnishings, to the framed iconic Time Magazine covers, the Modern Mile Home Tour’s Bonus Home proves an unending visual delight. As a lover of all things midcentury, I suspect a walk through this home feels like a spiritual journey. An architectural pilgrimage.

However, the magic of this home lies as much in its incredible inhabitants as it does its architecture. Join us after the jump for the story behind this stunning home and its charming occupants. Oh, and a few teaser photos, too.

It’s hard picturing yourself in a home that is completely empty. Sometimes it’s even harder in a new build. That’s why staging is so important, especially for spec homes. 
 
When The Avant Group — a CandysDirt.com Approved Builder — finished this beautiful contemporary two story in Midway Hollow, the home’s incredibly lofty ceilings and cool neutral color palette made it feel cold and cavernous. So Avant’s marketing chief, Heaven Porteous, brought in Suzie Barrett, owner of Dallas Staging Solutions. The results speak for themselves.

With about 2,600 houses built in the 1950s and 1960s, Midway Hollow is also attracting a lot of new construction. The boundaries Midway Road, Walnut Hill Lane, Marsh Lane, and Northwest Highway. With proximity to Love Field, the Tollway, and LBJ, it’s easy to get where you want to go from Midway Hollow.

Our Splurge vs. Steal today looks at two original neighborhood homes, each zoned for excellent elementary schools. The splurge is a ranch-style home, the steal more of a cottage. They’re both pretty fab. Let’s take a look.
