A cozy cottage in Hollywood Heights that blends old-school charm with modern updates is about to hit the market for $379,000. But we got an early look before it goes into MLS.
Originally built in 1950 and completely gutted and remodeled in 2001, 6603 Santa Fe Ave. is a solid choice for a family looking for good schools and outdoor activity.
Just a five-minute walk from White Rock Lake, this 1,900-square-foot house has four bedrooms, including a master that was added in 2006; three full baths; two living areas; and an open-concept kitchen.
The previous owners installed new plumbing and electrical components, opened up walls, added stainless steel appliances to the kitchen — including a 5-by-5 built-in refrigerator and freezer — and updated the kitchen and bathrooms with granite. The floors are the original hardwood, ensuring the home retains some of that classic character.
The master bedroom includes a walk-in closet, which listing agent Kim Sinnott says is rare for the neighborhood, and the en suite bathroom has plenty of space and plumbing hook-ups for a tub.
Sinnott says that the backyard backs up to the Santa Fe Trail, ensuring that you'll never have to deal with noisy construction behind you if you snag this deal, and the neighborhood feeds into DISD's exemplary Lakewood Elementary.
Real estate agents get a look on February 19 before the public is invited to an open house on February 22, 3-5 pm.
