Just Listed L Streets Ranch Has Fab Finish-Out For a Family

I moved to East Dallas about 11 years ago, and if you were to tell me then that most homes on the market in the Lake Highlands area were poised to top $400,000, I would have laughed at you and asked you what planet you are from. But guys, all those folks who bought in the L Streets when the getting was good are now reaping what they’ve sown, every so stylishly, too.

And yes, this L Streets home has the same look from the curb as you’d expect a Lake Highlands ranch to have, but it has been updated inside with an open floor plan, spacious master suite, and a fabulous kitchen. “What sets this home apart from the rest is its great use of space and attention to detail in the finish-out,” said Modtown Realty listing agent Jason Castro (yes, that Jason Castro). “With so many flips in the market, it’s rare to find something that has been renovated at this level of quality.”

We agree, and though this brand-new-to-the-market home is priced at $399,000, we’re pretty sure it’s going to get offers above asking. Want to see 9525 Leaside in person? Castro will have it open from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday.

It’s so adorable, right? I love the sight lines in the communal spaces, as you can see straight to that gorgeous open kitchen from the living room — perfect for families with small children. Castro notes that, while the whole home has been updated with great aplomb, there’s a lot you don’t see, including brand new electrical, plumbing, and mechanical. The things you do see stand out, especially the warm hardwood floors, perfectly smooth walls with bright white paint, and designer light fixtures. 

In all, this tidy Lake Highlands home has three bedrooms, two full baths — both of which are gorgeous! — and 1,707 square feet. You get a great backyard, too, as well as a two-car garage and a lovely curved deck.

I love the use of color in this thoroughly modern kitchen, complete with gas fireplace. There’s so much good contrast! “The kitchen is loaded with all Viking Appliances and the bathrooms are adorable,” Castro added. “So many updates to list and at $399,000, its the best deal in Lake Highlands this weekend!”

A move in-ready charmer in the L Streets is certainly going to drive some much-deserved attention. Especially one that has a full-on master suite, complete with a chandelier over the claw-foot tub!

Of course, there’s a play room and a nursery, both of which are so cute. And there’s plenty of room to have a few more neighborhood kids over to play in the grassy backyard. What a great house!
