This darling 1950’s ranch is west of Hillcrest, on the chi chi side, at 6832 Northwood. Buy this for way less than $300K — it’s listed as a foreclosure at $279,000. Then go brag on how you live on the very same street George and Laura Bush lived on the LAST time they lived in Dallas at 6029 Northwood, appraised by DCAD at about $625,000. That’s the home where they raised the twins and lived until he became governor of Texas.

6832 Northwood is 1584 square feet, built in 1950 with three bedrooms, two baths, open floor plan, a hefty 83 by 131 foot wide lot, cute updated bathrooms, utility room, one fireplace, and a charming backyard deck. Two car detached garage. Gonna be honest, I am not impressed with the kitchen but whenever I don’t like a room that only makes it easier for me to tear it out, start all over. I’d also get a decent vanity in at least one bath — pedestal sinks just don’t offer enought storage. Otherwise, this is a superior location and great buy in an area that will appreciate once the market comes back.
