When I see a home that is priced to sell in a great neighborhood, I’m constantly asking myself “What’s the catch?” OK, sure, there are beautiful floors and lovely landscaping, but what’s the catch? Where is the bottom going to fall out?
This home, though, is in a wonderful neighborhood with mature trees and sparkling front yards and is in impeccable shape for being built in 1974. While it’s been updated here and there, the construction is quality and the interiors are clean as a whistle. It’s a home that is great for someone who has an eye on just a few updates and wants a home with solid bones and a huge lot.

Take a look at these timeless interiors after the jump.
Crystal chandeliers, marble tiles in the foyer, a gorgeous atrium-style courtyard, and a lovely tray ceiling all make the entertaining rooms of this four-bedroom, three-full-and-one-half-bath home feel grand and inviting. The color palette is warm, with bold accents and classic swag curtains. The carpet may feel a little dated, but that’s an easy fix for the buyer set on making their mark. In all, 5505 Northaven has 3,813 square feet of space all in a one-story floor plan and a .57 acre lot.
“Owned by one family for many years, the home has been tastefully updated through the years and kept in mint condition,” says David Griffin, who has this home on MLS for $699,900. “This special home, located near so many of Dallas best schools, is priced to sell. Here is a wonderful opportunity to purchase a home that has been well cared for and loved by the current owners for many years.”
It does look amazing, as the terra cotta tile floors in the kitchen still shine like they were just glazed, and the bathrooms all feature great-looking ceramic tile. There is so much potential under the surface! The kitchen has updated stainless steel appliances, as well as a large breakfast area. It does seem a little tight, though, considering the oversized table and the cool vintage Dr Pepper vending machine.
The master suite is large at 24 x 14, and includes a fireplace and plenty of room for a chaise or that perfect comfortable chair and ottoman. The master bath has a jetted tub, dual vanities, and a separate shower. Walk-in closets are also in the floor plan.
It’s just a really gorgeous, classic home in such a fabulous location. Really, it can’t be beat. And the lot? It feels so private and lush. The landscaping is so well-established, and the patio is perfect with that lovely tree in the center providing natural shade. If you have to have a pool, there’s more than enough room for one in the oversized grassy backyard. What do you think about this listing?
