I’m throwing this together for our poor Jo, who has the flu. That bug is a tough bugger, so don’t freak if you see me touring homes wearing a mask! I found this house for you in Greenway Crest over south of Lovers Lane, 5523 Druid — there’s a sassy street — east of the tollway but not butting right up to it. And yes, it has been reduced a bit to $450,000 down from a high of $459,000, but no HPISD, sorry, DISD.
The home is just as cute as a button. You get 1886 square feet with three bedrooms, two full baths, everything remodeled. You get a large family room plus formals, both dining and living room. Like every house in Dallas, there is a new roof, also plantation shutters, a fireplace, granite counters and gleaming hardwoods. Here’s what I really like: a detached office or studio with full heat and air that has a tiled floor. Kind of don’t like the one car garage but you know, you cannot have the world for $450K. I don’t have to tell you how wunderbar this neighborhood is, the great mature trees and even a circular drive on a .5 acre lot. This would be a great investment house for a young couple to buy, enjoy, and then tear down in five years or so. The house is great but was built in 1949, after all. But you know what they say: location, location, location!
