A lot of the homes with pools in Lake Highlands are just basically concrete holes in the ground. I look at them and I think, “Gosh, if that were my house, I would have done that pool much differently!”
If you dream of living in Lake Highlands but want a custom pool (one designed by Harold Leidner perhaps?), then this is the perfect home for you. Just off of Skillman north of Walnut Hill is 9131 Gunnison, where you’ll find more than 2,300 square feet of living space in a contemporary candy-coated shell.
This home has been completely redone and every inch is just perfect. Built in 1978, this house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, and two rear garage spots. It’s priced well at $330,000 considering the amount of elbow grease that went into this home prior to it hitting MLS.
In the living room there is a vaulted ceiling with a gorgeous fireplace and hardwood floors. French doors open to the backyard, where your perfect pool and landscape will be built. From there, you can check out the kitchen, which features stainless appliances, a huge island, and a breakfast nook with another pair of French doors.
Upstairs is the master suite which has a huge window that overlooks the backyard. This is a wonderful space that can fit oversized furniture with plenty of elbow room left over. A vaulted ceiling makes the whole room feel even bigger, and of course, there’s a ceiling fan, too.
The master bath has a huge shower with fresh tile, but sadly, no tub. Still, it’s a great retreat with granite counters on a spacious double vanity that has tons of storage room. The vanity lights and mirrors add visual interest, too.
And the backyard, is, well, a blank slate. There’s a small deck attached to the home, but other than that you don’t have to fight any bushes or trees for your vision of the perfect summer oasis to take shape! I can’t wait to see what you build!
