Today’s Friday Five Hundred comes to your eyeballs from Little Elm, and it’s a lake side 1980s soft contemporary to get your weekend mojo going. Perfect as a main residence or a place to while away your spare hours with a boatload of friends, admiring the gorgeous sunsets over Lake Lewisville.
It’s rare to find a home that would work well as both a main residence and a vacation property, but 840 Highridge Dr. fits that bill to a tee! With four bedrooms, three full and one half bath, and two-story sweeping views of the lake and downtown Frisco, there’s not much more you can ask for in this contemporary lakehouse.
And considering that it’s in the high-achieving Little Elm ISD, you could raise an outdoorsy family in this beautiful waterfront abode, too.
This property has two living areas, two dining areas, an open kitchen, a wet bar, and two suites with a master upstairs and the guest down. Most of the living space is upstairs, which has a gorgeous terrace deck with cable and pole railings that wrap around the home. In the main living area there’s a dramatic floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace that works well with the vaulted ceilings and views. It’s listed by Coldwell Banker Frisco Realtor Christina White for $599,000.
In the kitchen you get tons of cabinet space, a lovely island, granite counters, and two sinks. Every room in this home has views, so don’t you dare think about putting up window dressings. They are completely unnecessary! Stainless steel appliances and a great little breakfast nook make this 3,644-square-foot home feel spacious and still cozy, thanks to the split level construction. Some of the lighting in this home will leave you scratching your head, like the weird Tiffany-style fixture over the breakfast area, or the oddly placed bank of lights off the kitchen. Still, with all those windows, even the boring beige paint is forgivable.
The master suite has its own balcony, which makes the space so much more versatile if you ask me. It gives you tons of light and emphasizes what’s great about the master bedroom, which is the size. The master bath features a shower, spa tub surrounded by windows, and two vanities that are perfect for making sure your sunscreen is applied appropriately.
The other bedrooms, as well as a family room, are downstairs, which also has a wet bar and a separate deck. That’s a fantastic way to let your younger guests stay entertatined and contained without letting all the crazy, rowdy kids invade the parents space upstairs. It also gives you a landing point for your apres water ski cocktails.
And the lawn, which is gigantic, is great for setting up a few chairs or loungers and soaking up the sun (with a nice even coat of sunscreen, of course!) after you take a nice refreshing swim.
