Brand-new homes on Tudor Lane are now completed, and home sales are off to a promising start with several of the homes already sold. This brand new block of homes comprises 14 single-family attached and 13 single-family detached energy-efficient homes. Pricing for the new homes begins at $115,000 and assistance is available to qualified homebuyers. This project was a joint effort of the City of Irving and the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (TDHCA).
"We're excited to have such a strong interest in these homes," said Assistant Community Resources Director Vicki Ebner. "The city is working to provide prospective homeowners with the tools needed for responsible homeownership."
"We are aggressively marketing the homes to families interested in a high-quality home in a location that is convenient to Trinity Railway Express stations, schools, parks and churches," said Community Resources Director Chris Hooper.
Tudor Lane Block Party - New homes are now available where run-down, crime-ridden apartments once stood. In celebration of the transformation on Tudor Lane, the City of Irving's Department of Housing and Human Services hosted a block party, and people got to tour some of the homes.
Within walking distance to Lamar Middle School, the neighborhood offers quick access to Interstate 30 and State Highway 183. The new homes are equipped with rear-entry two-car garages, Energy Star appliances, vaulted ceilings and tall kitchen cabinets. At least 3 tons of unused construction materials (e.g., wood and brick) will sidestep landfills and be recycled for environmentally smart purposes, such as mulch for a garden.
Up to $30,000 in downpayment assistance is available to eligible homebuyers through the TDHCA. TDHCA's Neighborhood Stabilization Program offers a downloadable Technical Guide with details on assistance.
