Greenway TerraceAdjacent to Greenway Parks and the Park Cities, this Greenway Terrace charmer is the perfect house for a downsizer or someone looking for a good investment until they’re ready for their forever, larger, home.

And what makes 4819 Wateka Drive that perfect spot? The two-bedroom, one bath, 1,155 square foot post-war cottage was built in 1948, but has been updated in the right places, and restored and carefully curated in the others. A new HVAC system was also installed last year as well.

Allen

When selecting Thursday Three Hundred homes, I have nothing against recently-built suburban neighborhood homes in high-growth areas, but I do have to say there’s a trade-off. For what you get in a shiny move-in ready home with the latest amenities, there’s an undeniable homogeneity that makes you feel like you’ve seen this home before. That’s why I was happy to find 806 Fawn Valley Drive in Allen: a five bedroom, three bath, 2,632-square-foot home that boasts architectural features and little details that make you appreciate the home in itself. It’s listed for $315,000 by Pareen Desai of JP & Associates Frisco(more…)

mid-century capsule

Fix yourself a cocktail at the smoked glass bar and come take a look at this part-time capsule, part-updated home in the heart of Irving listed by Blaine Soileau of Dallas City Center Realtors for this week’s Thursday 300.

Working on last week’s Suburb Sunday featuring Irving, I came across this stunning mid-century style home at 309 San Mateo Court that is fabulously priced at $398,000. This 3,168 square-foot four-bedroom, two and half-bath home has a striking front entrance with amazing angles that hint at its unique inside. I debated between featuring this and another MCM home, and went with the latter, but someone has jumped at the chance for this 1967-built home in Irving’s University Hills because it’s now listed as pending.

Richardson Heights

Certain neighborhoods tend to pop up frequently for CandysDirt’s Thursday Three Hundred round-up: northeast Dallas, Lake Highlands, and Richardson. But since I took the reins of this weekly feature a few months ago, I’d forgotten just how special the mid-century homes were in the popular Richardson Heights neighborhood near Arapaho and Floyd Road until a reader alerted us to his home new on the market. The 1961-built home at 629 Stardust Lane is a darling three bedroom, two bath, and one half-bath gem with 2,047 square feet. It’s listed for $375,000 by Ric Shanahan of Keller Williams Urban Dallas.

For this week’s Thursday Three Hundred, we’re in the Woodbridge neighborhood in northeast Dallas for a beautiful 1980-built four-bedroom, three-bath contemporary home listed by Brian Weast of Keller Williams Rockwall. This 2,831-square-foot home located at 12132 Larchgate Drive is listed for $335,000, a pretty tidy savings since it was first listed at $380,000 and great value for other similarly-sized and located homes in the neighborhood.

Tile floors greet you as you walk into this spacious and open floor plan that features vaulted ceilings, wood floors, and a floor-to-ceiling brick fireplace in the family room that’s flanked by two large picture windows. You’ve even got a place for your keys and the mail as you first walk in the door! (more…)

For this week’s Thursday Three Hundred, we check out this move-in ready mid-century home at 936 Peavy Road in the shadow of White Rock Lake at E. Lake Highlands Drive and Loop 12.

The living room flows seamlessly into casual dining and the kitchen that features stainless steel appliances including refrigerator, built-in microwave, stove/oven, and dishwasher. Granite countertops, ceramic tile backsplash, and new cabinets make this kitchen feel brand new.
