Color can be a beautiful thing. We’re often told to repaint our homes to a neutral palette when selling to appeal to as many buyers as possible. But some sellers buck that trend and keep the varied hues in their house. The results can be memorable.
Our Thursday Three Hundred will color you happy with its navy blue living room, sage green kitchen, bright bedrooms, and stripes on some walls and ceilings. It even has vintage lavender tiles in one bathroom.
Located at 9847 Shoreview Rd. in Lake Highlands’ Lake Ridge Estates, this property exudes personality and style with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,704 square feet on one story, built in 1958. No one who visits this house will get it mixed up in their memory with another.
Of course, there are lots of other selling features, like hardwood floors in the common areas and bedrooms, slate tile in the kitchen, an updated kitchen with gorgeous granite countertops, recent HVAC replacement, and a fantastic location near Northwest Highway and Audelia Road. It’s a hop, skip, and jump from the north shores of White Rock Lake and Flag Pole Hill. Bonus: it’s in the attendance zone for Hexter Elementary, which earns a “9” out of 10 from greatschools.org.
The outside of the house is a painted brick in a neutral taupe with mature landscaping, a welcoming front porch, and a mature shade tree. Cute curb appeal!
Inside, you’re greeted by the navy blue living room with navy-and-white stripes on one wall, recessed lights, and those lovely hardwoods. The nearby dining area shares the space and features a sparkly chandelier and room for a sideboard.
In the kitchen, light gray veined granite countertops mimic the look of granite against a backdrop of sage green walls with an abundance of white Shaker-style cabinets. Recent renovations added white subway tile for a backsplash, new stainless steel appliances, and slate tile floors. Off the kitchen, the family room offers a stately gas log corner fireplace and atrium doors to the patio and backyard.
The master suite features quartz countertops, vintage-style octagon tile on the floor, a separate shower, and a beautiful claw foot bathtub. A second bedroom has gray stripes on the ceiling, lots of windows, and access to the hall bathroom, with those lavender tiles, a cute original sink, and that period octagon floor tile.
The backyard features multiple seating areas, a covered patio, brick deck, wood privacy fence, mature landscaping, wonderful shade trees, lots of grassy green space, and a detached two-car garage.
