Lake Ridge Estates

Color can be a beautiful thing. We’re often told to repaint our homes to a neutral palette when selling to appeal to as many buyers as possible. But some sellers buck that trend and keep the varied hues in their house. The results can be memorable.

Our Thursday Three Hundred will color you happy with its navy blue living room, sage green kitchen, bright bedrooms, and stripes on some walls and ceilings. It even has vintage lavender tiles in one bathroom.

Located at 9847 Shoreview Rd. in Lake Highlands’ Lake Ridge Estates, this property exudes personality and style with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,704 square feet on one story, built in 1958. No one who visits this house will get it mixed up in their memory with another.

Of course, there are lots of other selling features, like hardwood floors in the common areas and bedrooms, slate tile in the kitchen, an updated kitchen with gorgeous granite countertops, recent HVAC replacement, and a fantastic location near Northwest Highway and Audelia Road. It’s a hop, skip, and jump from the north shores of White Rock Lake and Flag Pole Hill. Bonus: it’s in the attendance zone for Hexter Elementary, which earns a “9” out of 10 from greatschools.org.
