    Are the natural wood stained floors (versus dark stained) the new (old) thing? It seems like I am seeing more of this versus the dark stain most of us have had for the last 25 years or so..

    While the subdivision is “Lake Highlands”, the school system is not RISD, i.e., not Lake Highlands. Anything south of Northwest Highway zones DISD, not RISD. Confusing, I know. But someone might be disappointed thinking this was “Lake Highlands” when it is not.

      I heard a story the other day about why parts of University Park are in the DISD and not HPISD. It happened because of the death of the land-owner — he died before he re-zoned the properties!

      The legal subdivision name for this home is Lake highlands estates. While I agree it can be confusing, this isn’t a mistake in the article. Hopefully a Buyer’s agent will know the difference and inform the RISD zoned wanna be resident. This home is part of the overall collection of subdivisions known as Old Lake Highlands zoned to Hexter Elementary rated 9 out 10. Great Read and Write up, leah. I always enjoy your wittiness.
