For those of you who have $399,000 saved up—or can find a bank that might ever-so-generously loan back some of those TARP funds—6319 Crestmont Dr. is a dream come true. And you won’t believe what you’re getting for your money, honey: three bedrooms, two and a half baths, formals, den, two-car attached garage, and a yard to boot just north of Lovers Lane off Abrams Road. (Hello, Central Market and Party Place is within walking distance!) Like most of the ’hood, this 2,103-square-foot home was built in 1964, but it was taken down to the studs and completely renovated in 2008, with new roof, double-paned windows, wide-plank hardwood floors, gourmet kitchen (granite and stainless steel, of course) new bathrooms (Carrera marble, subway tiles, and built-ins), double crown molding, water heater, designer lighting with dimmers, luxury window treatments, and French doors leading to a grassy yard and custom horizontal-board fence. In fact, about the only thing left from the original house is the exterior brick painted a cool blue. The interior is so crisp and clean, and that den with the Austin stone gas log fireplace reminds you of the Hill Country. This thoroughly refreshing home has been on the market only three weeks. My guess: it sells for close to near asking by Monday.
