It’s address is the only real negative I can come up with for 926 Peavy Road, and even that isn’t such a bad thing. Peavy, which is what Mockingbird Lane turns into as you head east from White Rock Lake, is a busy thoroughfare, but this house won’t suffer from headlights shining through the front windows or blocked driveways thanks to an expertly placed privacy wall.
The wall, which creates a great little courtyard, makes this home feel a lot safer. Marketed by Peggy Millheiser of Dave Perry-Miller and Associates, this three-bedroom, two-bath, 1,841-square-foot home is priced at a reasonable $229,900.
This house, which feeds into Blue Ribbon Hexter Elementary, is in a neighborhood that is in the midst of revitalization thanks in part to small business owners. Just down Peavy Road are two restaurants — Good 2 Go Tacos and Goodfriend — that have garnered acclaim from all over the city, and this house is within walking distance. Also less than a brief jaunt away is a great park and playing fields, as well as Dallas’ crown jewel — White Rock Lake — itself.
Inside the home you’ll find several updates, such as hardwood floors and double-pane windows. The best thing about this house, hands down, is the brand-spanking new kitchen. I love the stainless fridge and double-drawer dishwasher, as well as granite counters and gleaming maple cabinets.
The master bedroom is a good size — certainly nothing to sneeze at — and comes equipped with a skylight. As much as I love skylights, I don’t like them waking me up before I have to be, so if it doesn’t come with a shade I am sure you can negotiate one.
The master bath is sparkling. I love the glass vanity top — very chic! The large tile in an off-set pattern makes the room feel longer and larger than it really is.
The backyard, which, thanks to a privacy fence and a creek nextdoor, feels exceptionally quiet. There’s tons of room back there, which is great for kids. The deck is great, too — a good spot for summer barbecues.
All in all, I think this home is an exceptional value. What do you think?
