I was thinking the same thing. Lakewood on the OP's budget is going to be tricky, I think.

I took a long cut home from Baylor today and drove around quite a bit in Junius Heights. The neighborhood is looking good, luv those historic homes. Googled some that I saw and it looks like they have a few for as low as 350,000. They probably have some fixer uppers that are cheaper though. (Noticed a couple where they destroyed the period style when updating the baths, really wish they wouldn't do that).

$350,000 is Way above average for Junius Heights. There is a beautiful home across the street from me, no work needs to be done to it, and it is running more like $240,000. That is more correct for a restored home in Junius Heights.

I live in Junius Heights and love it! We rented here for 3.5 years and bought our home nearly 10 years ago. I have children in 1st and 2nd grade at Lipscomb(a great neighborhood public Elementary-don't let people scare you about DISD without a tour). Houses will always need work in a neighborhood dating to the early 1900's. You can find things in all states of shape here, but most are in the process or nicely restored. This is a safe neighborhood with easy access to downtown, walk-able restaurants and shopping, great neighbors and active active community(we started a fun supper club a couple years ago).

I think you should let the forum know how many people are in the amazing supper club...because it is a testament to how great the neighbors and community of Junius Heights are...people from all walks of life and experiences!!

One story or two? I can't link from the site I was looking at, but this looks like some of the homes I liked. Maybe I'm going to grandeur or getting to close to Swiss, they are beautiful

There are certainly finished homes above 300K in JH, but if you are open to a fixer upper as mentioned, you can find quite a few in the price range mentioned Munger Place has the larger two story homes, in general the JH area is more of a bungalow community. Swiss is almost all close to 1m. but Bryan Pkwy has some great deals

The JH supper club has well over 20 families involved now It's a great testament to the community feeling

1 Story. The average home in Junius Heights is one story 3 bedroom one or two bath and below 2,000 square feet. The average price -last I checked -was about $225,000. This doesn't, of course, fit all homes, some cost more, some cost less, and there are a very few two story homes, or homes with more square footage, but as Amy says it is mostly a bungalow community.
