Tuesday Two Hundred: Lakewood Midcentury Priced for Quick Sale

_MG_9058
Today’s Tuesday Two Hundred takes us just north of White Rock Lake in Lakewood to 7325 Rutgers Drive. This fantastic East Dallas neighborhood is full of other handsome midcentury houses like this one, but few are priced as competitively: With a recent price reduction, it is now listed for $299,900, or $185 per square foot. Nearby comps have been averaging almost $200 per square foot.

Built in 1960 and recently updated, this brick house is a 3-2 with 1,617 square feet sitting on 0.178 acres with lovely, mature trees. Located within walking distance of the new playground and splash park at Ridgewood-Belcher Rec Center, this University Terrace property is in the Lakewood Elementary, Long Middle, and Woodrow Wilson High School zones. Nearby private schools include Zion Lutheran, St. Thomas Aquinas Elementary, and Dallas Academy. The neighborhood has a Fourth of July parade and a Halloween party for local kids. Needless to say, the area draws many families.

Friday Five Hundred: Custom-built Colleyville Charmer Can’t Catch a Break

WhittierAWe’ve found a great property that just isn’t selling, and we’re not sure why. This prairie-style, two-story house in Colleyville was listed at the end of August, and had a $25,000 price reduction in mid-October to $599,900, but still, no buyer.

Listed by Beverly Spillyards at Ebby Halliday’s Southlake office, this property at 6712 Whittier Lane is a custom-build, one of the first in the Whittier Heights subdivision in 2004. With 4,776 square feet sitting on over a third of an acre of land, this house has a lot of everything. It’s a four bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom house with a three-car garage and all sorts of luxury details. So what’s the deal?

9003 Groveland Front

We wrote about 9003 Groveland when it was still a Friday Four Hundred. But last weekend, when my husband was out on a run through the neighborhood with our son in the stroller, he snagged a bright yellow flier advertising this four-bedroom, two-bath home for $389,000. Whoa! That’s a huge reduction from the last time we wrote about this cool house, which was priced at $435,000, and a significant reduction from its original $449,000 price.
