Chris Beckett and Pine & Beckett Realtors is not kidding around — this 1959 Midcentury Ranch in Fannin Terrace is indeed “hip of the hip,” making it the perfect pick for our Thursday Three Hundred for the week.

This three-bedroom, two-bath home at 2503 Terrace Ave. in the Fannin Terrace neighborhood of Midland has everything you look for in midcentury architecture — high ceilings, custom shelving, tons of windows and transoms, and, Beckett said, “original brass inlay Terrazzo floors.” (more…)

Texas in the summer is hot — that’s no secret. But this move-in ready Mediterranean in the Pecan Acres neighborhood came with photos that made us feel about 10 degrees cooler just from looking at them.

Listed by Thomas Johnston and Brian Savage, this four-bedroom, three-bath home sits on 2.4 acres of fenced land in a quiet neighborhood. In fact, 8200 Dunblane Drive has 3,569 square feet of living space, making it not only a cool respite but also a generous one. (more…)

When we looked for this week’s Thursday Three Hundred, we were hooked in a hot minute when we saw this adorable Old Midland home that is part Spanish, part midcentury modern in style, and deceptively spacious inside, too.

Within walking distance of Hill Park and the duck pond, this five-bedroom, two-bath, 3,215-square-foot home on a corner lot is ideally situated in Old Midland, but with a backyard that’s private enough to feel like you’ve got a retreat. (more…)

Green TreeIt’s not every day that you find a home with almost everything you could want — and one that allows you to live luxe both indoors and outdoors. But this week’s Tuesday Two Million in Green Tree North does just that.

Located at 6833 Island Circle in Midland, the four-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bath home is on the Green Tree Golf Course. Inside, there is 8,048 square feet of living space — plenty for entertaining — and outside, even more space with a pool, outdoor kitchen, and outdoor living area with heaters for chilly winters and screens for mosquito-free summer entertaining.

Dona Satterfield is not kidding when she says she has a Trinity West one-story with gorgeous updates. And those updates will satisfy any family’s need to entertain and relax. It was the perfect choice for our Friday Five Hundred this week.

Her listing, which is with Pine & Beckett Realtors, sits at 4125 Springfield Court, and is right smack dab in the middle of the Trinity West neighborhood, practically. It’s been elegantly updated with light, airy paint colors and finishes in every single generously sized room. (more…)

How hot? Last month, the city was at the top of Realtor.com’s Hottest Real Estate Markets rankings (out of 300 metro areas) — beating out the Boston area by a full half point and third place finisher San Francisco by almost two points.

Realtor.com arrives at its “hotness” scale by using several metrics, including the city’s home inventory and price growth. (more…)
