Home of the week: 5300 McCommas Boulevard in Dallas
You can buy a Greenland Hills address and a pool, with money to spare.
I have a list of things I want in my next home. It goes a little something like this: 1. Pool, 2. New or like-new kitchen, 3. Two full baths, 4. Pool.
Not only does this house have everything on that list, but it’s also in the highly sought-after neighborhood of Greenland Hills. In fact, 5330 McCommas Blvd. is not only a great house for a small family, empty-nesters, or a professional couple, but the location makes it all but ideal.
This house, which is close enough to North Central Expressway to be accessible but not so close that you’ll hear traffic, will only set you back $394,000. Let’s talk about what you get for your dollars here.
For one, you’re centrally located in a cultural hotspot. You’ve got Greenville Avenue and Mockingbird Lane on your doorstep, and not too far is SMU and the Park Cities. There’s tons to do and great shopping. You’re super close to mass transit as well.
Inside the house there’s fresh paint, cute light fixtures, a practically new kitchen, and spacious bedrooms, all of which total just over 1,800 square feet. Outside there’s a pool and a deck that’s just begging for a pitcher of margaritas and a few friends from your “book club.”
So, what do you think? Is it priced right? Is it missing something?
