Renovations can pay off in a big way when it’s time to sell. Our Thursday Three Hundred, a to-the-studs remodel that’s just adorable, saw a contract within four days of hitting the market. That’s impressive.
Located at 515 Kirkwood Dr. in Lake Highlands Estates, this cottage has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,172 square feet, built in 1954. It’s in Old Lake Highlands, near N. Buckner Boulevard and E. Lake Highlands Drive, so minutes from the north shores of White Rock Lake. Fantastic location, fabulous house. No wonder it generated so much interest.
The storybook red brick exterior of this cottage adds to the curb appeal, as do new windows, landscaped beds, and an inviting front covered porch. Super cute.
Inside, there are beautiful hardwoods and a neutral palette, which carry through much of the home. The front living area leads to a small formal dining room, which is open to the new kitchen and second living area.
The kitchen has seen the biggest changes—it offers lots of on-trend white cabinets, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances (including a gas range), stylish chandelier, recessed lighting, and a center island. Great space.
The bathrooms are another recipient of big renovations: new tile, showers, vanities, mirrors, fixtures, and a fresh look. The bedrooms have hardwood floors and plenty of light from the windows.
The backyard of this cottage features a small deck, room for a grill, and mature shade trees.
It was listed Aug. 27 by Jenny Capritta with Re/Max DFW Associates for $325,000 and went under contract yesterday.
