Richardson Heights is one of the hottest neighborhoods in DFW. It’s located just outside the LBJ loop, has great schools, and the houses are full of character.

I’ve found a just-listed Richardson midcentury modern ranch that is simply stunning! Located at 302 W. Shore Dr. near W. Belt Line Road and N. Waterview Drive, this beauty is listed by Anne Westphal and Morris Hanys with Ebby Halliday Realtors. It sits on a three-quarter-acre creek lot on a quiet street—this is one of the prettiest lots in the city.

The interior is renovated with luxury in mind, but keeping many classic, original elements and modernizing the floorplan. It’s a perfect blend of retro charm and on-trend appeal!

With four bedrooms, three full bathrooms, one half bath, two living areas, and 3,232 square feet, this 1959 Richardson midcentury is spacious and totally livable. I love the flow and airy feel inside, and the killer curb appeal outside. For families, it doesn’t get much better, with so much space for kids and pets in the house and yard. Let me give you a tour.

This house is located a few blocks from Heights Park, which offers 33 acres and a rec center, swimming pool, playground, and sports fields. It’s only 9 miles north of LBJ, and minutes from Central Expressway and the DART light-rail Arapaho Center Station. Totally convenient location.

Renovations opened up the interior floorplan, but kept the fabulous oversized stone fireplace, an anchor for the front living room. Light-colored solid oak hardwoods flow throughout the home, even in the kitchen and closets, a true luxury, and they’ve got beautiful variegations.

Let’s talk about that kitchen: total dream, with professional-grade stainless steel appliances (including the all-important wine refrigerator!), custom walnut cabinets, two pantries, a huge waterfall island with breakfast bar, contemporary tile backsplash, and elegant quartz countertops. It’s sleek and modern, but it fits right into the midcentury modern look.

Nearby is a large, separate utility room with built-in cabinets, drip-dry area, washer-dryer hookups, and a sink. The home also features four storage closets, a mudroom, low-E windows, and a home office or studio.

We all know that kitchens and bathrooms sell a house, and clearly the kitchen in this Richardson midcentury is a win. How about the bathrooms? The master is a contemporary masterpiece, with those same walnut cabinets as the kitchen, quartz countertops, dual sinks, designer tile, a soaker tub, and a large walk-in shower with frameless glass, and a small deck accessible from the master bedroom. There’s also an oversized walk-in closet with custom organization system. This is a bathroom anyone would be thrilled to have, and the other three bathrooms in the house mirror this aesthetic.

The large patio overlooks the rolling backyard to Cottonwood Creek, a relaxing space with mature trees and rolling hills.

This home is listed by Westphal and Hanys for $799,000. There are two open houses coming up, Saturday, Jan. 28, 2-4 p.m. and Sunday, Jan. 29, 2-4 p.m. For more information, contact Westphal or Hanys today!
