Midway HollowOne of the great things about Midway Hollow is that there is a price point for nearly everyone — for now.

Today’s Thursday Three Hundred is an example of that — a fully renovated post-war traditional with a wide open floor plan, but a reasonable price tag for a two-bedroom, one-bath home.

Although it’s getting more difficult to find homes as finished and beautiful as this for less than $400,000 in Midway Hollow, this home at 3729 Matador Drive has been completely renovated and fully updated — right down to the floor plan and finishes.

“It is a small home but the space is laid out really well,” listing agent Robyn Brandenburg of Vivo Realty said. “Happy Hour Investments moved quite a few walls and didn’t skimp on the upgrades.”

Brandenburg said Happy Hour always uses some of the most expensive products in their renovations — and that shows in the wow factor, especially at this $350,000 price point.


Light, bright, and full of character: these words perfectly describe the newly listed house at 7739 El Pensador Dr.

Our Thursday Three Hundred went on the market Nov. 27, located in the part of the Richardson Heights neighborhood that’s actually in Dallas, near Arapaho and Coit roads. Bonus for famillies: it’s in the attendance for Bowie Elementary School in Richardson ISD, which earns a 9 out of 10 from greatschools.org

This home has three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, one half bath, two living areas, two dining areas, and 1,821 square feet on one story, built in 1967.

Feel the Magic of this Claremont Renovation that Turned Dumpy to Delightful | CandysDirt.com

We’ve long been fans of Barton-Graham Home & Design Firm, a dynamic duo specializing in East Dallas renovations. In their latest project, they don’t disappoint. 

The house at 8071 Claremont Dr. is our Thursday Three Hundred, a massive transformation by Casey Barton and Raymond E. Graham. The pair have been renovating and selling houses together for 10 years with their design company, getting better with every flip. 

They specialize in finding diamonds in the rough, and this house was no exception. 

“This was not a sellable property before — it had a 750-square-foot addition that we torn down because it was really bad with different height rooflines and flooring, all very poorly done,” Barton said. “But we knew this house had a lot of potential.” 

They started work one year ago and put the home on the market Oct. 31. It has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living areas, and 1,971 square feet on one story, built in 1957. Let’s see the place now. 


royal haven

This three-bedroom, three-bath ranch in Royal Haven is a great option for home buyers finding themselves priced out of Sparkman Club and Midway Hollow.

As home buyers begin to get priced out of Midway Hollow and Sparkman Club Estates, they are starting to look to other nearby neighborhoods, where investors are starting to snap up lots and renovate, but the price tags are still affordable.

This week’s Thursday Three Hundred is in the Royal Haven neighborhood, which is bordered in part by Webb Chapel Road, Forest Lane, and Royal Lane in Northwest Dallas.

It’s a neighborhood where you can still get the square footage and the family neighborhood you want, but at an affordable $300,000 range.  (more…)
