Lake Highlands Custom Home is a Dream For Families

 

Lake Highlands IHOTW

The love for Lake Highlands runs deep. It’s commonplace to find people that grew up there, moved away to begin careers then moved back as soon as they could to raise their families. Richardson ISD is also a big draw, with fierce school loyalty in every part of Lake Highlands. It has the perks of a suburb without really being one because it’s close to everything.

If you long for the TV series version of a neighborhood, where you are actual friends with your neighbors, the kids really run out to play after school, and people are engaged and active in the community, this Lake Highlands custom home is move-in ready!

Donald Wright with the Wrighthouse Group at Gilchrist & Company Real Estate just listed, this gorgeous two-story home at 9778 Spring Branch Drive for $1.12 million.

Mark Dann with Highland Classic Homes built the 3,701-square-foot house in 2012. If you’re not familiar with Dann, he was one of the first to begin constructing new homes in Lake Highlands. With over 30 years in the industry, Dann started his own firm in 2005 and builds only eight to 10 homes each year. Known for their high quality, attention to detail, and energy efficiency, his homes are highly sought after.

“I’ve seen a lot of new construction homes, but his one is different because of that attention to detail,” Wright said. “It’s completely move-in ready. You won’t have to do a thing.”

Indeed, we rarely see a house so totally on trend that easily meets the needs of a family this well. Dann added just the right organic touches to the home, from the arched stone entry leading into the family room—that matches the fireplace, to the vaulted and beamed ceilings that echo the rich wood floors.

He used reclaimed wood on one wall in the home’s study, which is a lovely change from all the shiplap we’ve seen lately. The stained support beams that frame the dining area are a nice touch as well.

There are four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a powder bath — plenty of room for a growing family. The second floor has another living area complete with mini fridge and microwave.

“There’s also a huge attic space with easy access,” Wright said. Think of the possibilities, another bedroom, media room or guest suite!
