I was getting really, really, terribly bored looking for a home to feature today. First I thought “Let’s see if there’s something fun in Frisco,” but everything just looked the same to me today. Then I looked at homes in McKinney, only to have the same thing happen. After looking and looking and looking and almost at the very edge of being put to sleep by home searching, I stumbled upon a home that was so unique, so fun, so vibrant, it woke me up faster than my grande vanilla latte with an extra shot!

Truly, this Lakewood Heights Midcentury Modern may look like a yawnfest from the curb, but boy, you’re in for a treat after the jump!

This home is just incredible inside — a symphony of contemporary curves, fun color, chrome accents, Art-Deco lines, and cool accessories that are all combined 6202 Monticello because it’s so very in-your-face in a way that I don’t mind at all! Built in 1955 and renovated with a host of upgrades, this three-bedroom, three-bath home has more than 2,500 square feet, a two-car garage, and is marketed by Ebby Halliday Realtor Terri Taylor Briggs for $582,000.

That’s a pretty decent price for a home this size with as many new components and finishes as it has in the very hot Lakewood Hills area. Not only do you get a fantastic location in a prime neighborhood with great schools, but this home is move-in ready for an adventurous spirit.

    This home is actually located in Lakewood Heights. Lakewood Hills is the “new” name for the Coronado Hills/Gastonwood neighborhood just south of Gaston and East of Lakewood CC. Hills/Heights……Tomato…. 🙂

    Super house. I like the curvy ceiling and curvy bar wall of the kitchen, a nice contrast to the largely straight, but great, lines of the house. And the wall of windows against the dining area are resplendent.
