Adorable Ridglea Home Is Perfect Midland Starter Home

MidlandStarter homes with plenty of adorable updates like the one we’ve found in this home in the Ridglea neighborhood of Midland are as fine hen’s teeth.

But here we are, on a Monday, showing you one of the cutest little three-bedroom, one-bathroom homes we’ve seen in some time.

“Redone and then some!” listing agent Norma Pine of Pine & Beckett Realtors said. “Better than HGTV ever dreamed of!”

And she’s not wrong.

This 1944 home located at 100 Ridglea Dr. is 1,485 square feet of cute, with brand-spanking new updates throughout. Plantation shutters keep out the hot summer sun, and the original wood floors have been given a re-do as well.

Pine said in addition, the galley-style kitchen — which has views of the living room and dining room thanks to a pass-through — is new, with an updated (and unique) blue tile backsplash, new granite and under-cabinet lighting.

And can we talk about that living room? Between the hardwoods and the adorable mosaic wall tile behind a great freestanding, woodburning stove, we can’t imagine a better place to snuggle up with your boo on one of those rare chilly Texas nights.

Three generously sized bedrooms (one with great built-ins) means you have a guest room, a master bedroom, and an office space. The lone bathroom is roomy enough for two to get ready, and has clearly gotten the benefit of the owners’ update bug, too.

A large backyard has plenty of room for entertaining (or gardening) and is a blank slate. And if the backyard is too hot this summer, a charming sunroom is handy for quick cool offs. Pine says that driveway is brand-new, too.

The home is listed for $240,000 and is within easy reach of grocery stores and restaurants, and other great Midland neighborhoods, including Country Club Heights.
