You don’t have to spend millions for luxe accommodations in Midland, and today’s listing from Nate Reeves and his team proves just that – and it’s family-friendly to boot.

This four-bedroom, three-bath home is truly a property that you will use every inch of, because it’s obvious the backyard entertaining options have been given quite a bit of thought. (more…)

Bison Trail Front

Backyards are great and all, but sometimes you just don’t have the wherewithal to mow the lawn every Saturday, or deal with the hassle of a pool. That doesn’t mean you have to give up having a backyard, per se. If you want lovely, relaxing views without all that hassle, then you should consider this gem at 919 Bison Trail in Stevens Wood.

Bison Trail Living

This is a great neighborhood right off of Stevens Park Golf Course, a public course in North Oak Cliff that has been recently restored to epic beauty and playability. This home has two bedrooms, two baths, almost 1,700 square feet, a two-car garage and fantastic golf course views from its elevated deck. Just below the deck is a wonderful stone patio with fire pit — no better place to roast marshmallows during the first cold snap!

Bison Trail Kitchen

Marketed by Phillip Walker of Keller Williams Elite for $399,000, this North Oak Cliff home is recently updated with tons of great features that make it move-in ready. While the listing calls this home a Midcentury Modern, I’d say it fits more in the realm of post-war contemporary. It lacks a lot of features you would usually spot in a mid-mod, including a flat or angled roof, open floor plans, wood grain accents, and atomic-era lighting.

Bison Trail Master bath

Still, this home has a wonderfully bright, warm, contemporary feel with updates in the kitchen and baths that will make any new owner happy. Fresh tile, counters, and a luxury master suite make this home a real catch. Add in the amazing view and it’ll fly off the market!

Darbyshire FrontThis is one of those homes that will appeal to just about any palate. Listed by Keller Williams Realty agent Todd Smith, 3215 Darbyshire offers the 1960s ranch layout without all of the weird paneling and outdated fixtures, and for an affordable price at $280,000.

Darbyshire Living

The sellers have really put a lot into this Sparkman Club Estates house, and some of the upgrades are to die for. I love the polished concrete floors in the living and dining areas. It really highlights the brick fireplace, which is a two-sided gas fireplace. Love those!

Darbyshire Kitchen Darbyshire Kitchen 2

The kitchen has granite tile counters with tumbled stone backsplashes. There’s a Viking range and a convection oven, too, all of which are stainless steel. The real scene-stealer in the kitchen, though, is the commercial-grade stainless steel apron sink. I can’t even remember the last time I saw one of these outside a restaurant kitchen!

Darbyshire Master

The master bedrooms is sized just like Baby Bear’s porridge — just right at 14 x 17. It opens to the back porch, too. That’s a great feature for folks who like to take in a breath of fresh air first thing in the morning.

Darbyshire Master Bath

The master bath has been updated, too, with distressed black cabinetry, granite, and cabinet-top vessel sinks. I don’t know if I like the cabinetry, but it’s not my house, either. It seems a little dark, but I’m pretty sure that a coat of paint could fix it.

Darbyshire Backyard

The backyard, it’s just splendid! I love the stone path and the deck with pergola. That’s a fantastic feature. Put a spa right there and I may never leave!
