Affordable home of the week: 810 Green Hill Road in Dallas
I feel like I’ve hit jackpot — and really, some lucky buyer will.
We have a secret neighborhood. Yes, we do. And it’s in the city of Dallas, seven miles from downtown. Ever heard of Glen Oaks in Oak Cliff? Located south of Loop 12, where I picked up Father’s Day barbeque at Sweet Georgia Brown's, mid-way betwixt I-35 and 67, there is a cluster of mid-century homes CUSTOM BUILT in the 1950s and 1960s called Glen Oaks. You get strong homes and large lots for, well, almost as much as I paid for barbeque. OK, maybe a little more, but the terrain is hilly, it’s loaded with trees, and the community is insular, secluded by only 13 entrances. And talk about mid-century manna! (Seriously, I’m not even going to tell you the price of this house. It is ridiculous!)
At 810 Green Hill Road, you get mid-century modern design with vaulted and beamed ceilings, exposed brick walls, open layout with sharp angles, and clean, clean lines. The lots here are large, and there are so many mid-century mods, it will make your head spin like the color wheel on an aluminum revolving Christmas tree. This very cool, clean, updated mid-century has three bedrooms, two baths and sits on just over a quarter acre of land with a patio breezeway. There is the classic one-car carport, which is very green by today’s standards, and a detached two-car garage to provide plenty of parking.
The price? You will not believe me, but I’ll tell you anyways: $124,900. I can hardly wait to get on DayBreak and tell Ron Corning about this house. Honestly, I feel like I’ve hit jackpot — and really, some lucky buyer will! PS: This is our first listing from the new Dallas City Center Realtors — woot woot!
