Buckner TerraceIt’s not often you can find a four bedroom, move-in ready home at a price point north of $300,000, but when Paige and Curt Elliott with Dave Perry-Miller — Park Cities told us about this Buckner Terrace listing, we knew we found our Tuesday Two Hundred for this week.

“It’s a fresh, neutral, and lightly lived in, rare four-bedroom in the sought-after Buckner Terrace,” Paige Elliott told us of their listing at 5631 Everglade Road.

With 1,998 square feet of upgraded living space, this 1968 Traditional has a flexible and open floor plan with the formal living area opening to the kitchen, breakfast nook, and second living room. (more…)

Oak CliffWhen you’re looking in that $300,000-and-under price point, sometimes you feel like you have to sacrifice something to get it — location, space, or even amenities or finishes. But with this week’s Tuesday Two Hundred in Oak Cliff, you really do get a lot for the price point.

The first thing that caught our eye was the sunny yellow exterior paint of this Cottage-Style Ranch at 2538 Emmett St. Clocking in at 1,712 square feet, this three-bedroom, two-bath home may have been built in 1925, but it’s had a recent update — enough of one that listing agent Lucy Massey with REMAX Select Homes calls it, “almost like new.”

The seller addressed aesthetics, but also addressed quite a bit more structurally, installing new plumbing, a new electrical system, new roof, new decking, a new HVAC system, new siding, and windows.

North CliffWhen you ask Realtors to pitch their listings, it becomes hard to pick which one to feature — and that’s a great problem to have. This week’s Tuesday Two Hundred is in North Cliff and is a great example of how you can mix well-cared-for vintage aspects of your historic home with new, thoughtful updates.

Tucked into the North Cliff Conservation District in North Oak Cliff, 2736 Ivandell Ave. is a Minimal Traditional Bungalow built in 1947. Priced right at $250,000, the three-bedroom, two-bath home is just shy of three miles from Bishop Arts.

Outside, the curb appeal is in the charming brickwork and the large treed lot. “The brick style is unique and is reportedly called ‘bread and butter,’” said listing agent Katrina Whatley with Ultima Real Estate. (more…)

Midcentury RanchTucked back behind Forest Lane, Marsh Lane, and Webb Chapel Road is an enclave of Midcentury Ranch homes, homes to families from the late 1950s to today — and they’re still some of the most affordable homes in North Dallas.

Built by Fox & Jacobs, the L-shaped Accent and Flair homes of the 1960s are present in several neighborhoods in North Dallas, especially along Marsh Lane (full disclosure, this writer lives in one, and her family is only the second family to live in the home since it was built in 1961).

ElmwoodAs property values climb in Dallas, the $200,000 range is often considered the sweet spot now for first-time buyers — and we found a perfect perch in Elmwood for this week’s Tuesday Two Hundred.

But it’s not just a perfect location (more on that in a minute) that sets this two-bedroom, one-bath home apart from the other starters out there — it’s also been updated extensively.

“What makes this house so special is its charm and character,” listing agent Brian Davis with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s said of 2042 Rugged Drive. “From the moment you drive up, the color of the shutters and front door, the white picket railing on the front porch, the covered sitting area, and the views of the greenbelt draw you in.

Webb RoyalWe’ve written about the Webb Royal neighborhood before — the perfect choice for young families that find themselves priced out of popular Sparkman Club and Midway Hollow. And we found a great example of what makes Webb Royal so great in our Tuesday Two Hundred this week — an adorable traditional built in 1955, but recently updated throughout.

And bonus — it’s in a community that hosts neighborhood parties and chili cookoffs, with a walkability and safeness that makes it a great place for family-friendly holiday activities like trick-or-treating, too.

In fact, when we set out to write about the neighborhood, one resident went door-to-door to talk to his neighbors about why they loved the neighborhood, helping us paint a picture of a community that is a grand mix of longtime homeowners and new families, all enjoying the numerous nearby amenities and the quiet charm of their neighborhood.

“Whenever my friends say they’re looking for a new home, I encourage them to look in our neighborhood because it’s one of the few spots you can still find a great deal in an up and coming neighborhood,” resident Jeff Reburn said at the time. “It’s one of the few neighborhoods in Northwest Dallas you can find a great home for between $200,000 and $400,000, depending on size and how updated it is.”

“There are nice homes on tree-lined streets with friendly neighbors,” Bill Adams said. “We picked the neighborhood before we picked the house so that speaks volumes to the personality of the neighborhood.”

The home on 10732 Channel Drive is listed by Laura Suarez with Century 21 Alicia Trevino, Realtors, and is 1,913 square feet of family-friendly space, including four bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms. (more…)

East DallasIt’s not often you find an East Dallas home with four bedrooms and two baths for less than $250,000, which is why Lauri Ann Hanson with Dave-Perry Miller InTown knew to alert us that she had what she calls “a unicorn.”

And that unicorn, which is located on 11336 Quail Run St., was a perfect candidate for this week’s Tuesday Two Hundred, priced perfectly for a first-time buyer or an investor.

“Not only is this Highland Meadows cutie packed with charm and all the curb appeal, but it’s difficult to find four-bed, two-bath within the bubble for just $249,900!” Hanson said. (more…)
