Beechwood3937 Beechwood Lane, $200,000
3 bedrooms, 1.1 bathrooms, 1,301 square feet
Midway Hollow

The up-and-coming ‘hood just south of Walnut Hill and west of Midway has some serious deals to be had. This three-bedroom cottage sits on a huge lot. So, if you wanted to add on, build a deck, or put your mother-in-law up in a back house, there’s plenty of room to work with. Updates include hardwood floors, mosaic tiles in the bathroom, and new cabinetry and granite counters in the kitchen. Tres Holder for RE/MAX Associates of Dallas. 972- 907-0000.

Aqua581 Aqua Drive, $209,000
2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, 1,071 square feet
Lake Highlands Estates

This 1,000-square-foot home packs a lot of punch for the small square footage. Yes, there’s only bathroom, but the updates and living area more than make up for the lack of loos. We’re sort of obsessed with the spacious screened-in porch. (Especially since the heat of summer and mosquito-infestation is upon us.) It allows you to enjoy the outdoors without, well, being outdoors. The interiors are awash in happy paint colors and the kitchen has been updated with granite. Sherri Baer Wilson for Virginia Cook Realtors. 214-202-5768.

Renaissance3225 Turtle Creek Boulevard, $209,900
1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, 917 square feet

Located on the prestigious Turtle Creek Boulevard just off of Lee Park, you can zip to downtown, uptown, the Park Cities, the toll road and Central in no time. The two-story penthouse features a custom master closet, stainless appliances in the kitchen, and views to the north. The building’s resident corridors and elevator landings have recently been updated. Sue Krider for Allie Beth Allman & Associates. 214-673-6933.
