Looking for a remodeled ranch within 20 minutes of downtown Dallas on a $250,000 budget? You’re in luck: There’s one on the market at 3065 Kinkaid Dr., near Webb Chapel Road and Walnut Hill Lane, and it boasts a few unexpected updates. 

It’s located in Bradford Estates, an accessible area with lots of houses from the 1950s and ​’60s, with a friendly atmosphere and wide, green yards. The 1,815-square-foot, three-bedroom, two-bath home is listed with Shae Nault of Keller Williams DFW Metro Areas, and it has been reduced to $244,900 from $249,900.

Built in 1969, the house has curb appeal, with a year-old, class-4 standing seam metal roof — unusual for a home priced well under $300,000. Metal roofing has increased in popularity not only because of its sleek look, but also because it is strong, lightweight, fire resistant, and energy efficient. With the class-4 rating, it is also hail resistant — and many insurance carriers offer a discount for this kind of roof. Bonus!

Other features include all new windows, new HVAC system, new kitchen appliances, hardwood floors, glass fireplace, pretty landscaping, swimming pool, and a hot tub under a covered patio. Nothing else to do here but move on in.

The house has good flow, thanks to the all-important open floorplan. Natural light pours in from the new windows, and light-colored hardwoods and a freshly painted neutral color scheme help keep things bright and airy.

To the left of the entryway, French doors lead to a formal dining room. To the right are the breakfast room and living area, which has vaulted ceilings and a large brick fireplace with low-maintenance ice blue fireglass. 

In the kitchen itself, spot granite counters, new stone backsplash, and newly painted cabinets with replaced hardware. A breakfast bar looks into the kitchen and provides additional casual seating.

Hardwoods continue throughout all the bedrooms, including the master, which has a walk-in closet, recessed lighting, and small yet updated en suite bathroom. The second bathroom also got a facelift, with new tile, fixtures, and a contemporary sink. 

The last stop in this home is the backyard, and it doesn’t disappoint. A hot tub sits on a covered wood deck, but the amenities don’t stop there: There’s some landscaping along the garage wall and a sparkling swimming pool.
