Lake Highlands Charmer on Large Corner Lot is Move-in Ready for Less Than $300K

Share News:

Folks looking to get into Dallas’ Lake Highlands neighborhood could do a whole lot worse than this week’s Tuesday Two Hundred. Situated on a large corner lot at 11034 Listi Drive, this home features a drive-up that feels like a welcome home hug. It’s adorable. And the interior isn’t too shabby either.

“It has a lot to offer,” said listing agent Nicole Thomas of Local Resident Realty. “To find something for under $300 in Lake Highlands is difficult. It’s a great house in a great neighborhood at a great value, and you can’t beat that.”

Beyond the affordable price point, this home has a lot of appeal. For starters, it’s move-in ready, if you’re not up for doing a bunch of work. But if you’re ready to put your personal touch on a property, there’s plenty of room for that, too. Even minor renovations could make a big impact on this charming home (we do spy some popcorn ceilings). Plus, it’s Lake Highlands. Listi Drive is a hop, skip, and a jump from White Rock Lake and it’s located in a good school district.

“Not only does it have good schools, the neighborhood is also super family friendly,” said Thomas.

Listed at $285,000, this home has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living areas, and 1,714 square feet on one story.

The moment you step inside, you’re greeted with vaulted ceilings that lend a crisp, modern feel to the living area. And like the rest of the house, it’s been updated in a tranquil, neutral palette. The open, airy living room flows directly into the dining room, which features an updated chandelier.

The quaint-but-updated kitchen features stainless steel appliances and an electric cooktop. And it opens directly into a second living space, complete with cozy fireplace, tons of natural light, and views of the back deck, making it a great entertaining space.

All three bedrooms are roomy enough, including the master bedroom, which features a bonus nook. This versatile nook within the master makes the perfect small home office or even a nursery. The master bath doesn’t appear to be overly spacious, but it’s updated with bright and neutral fixtures.

If you liked the drive-up, the backyard will be another big selling feature. With a spacious wooden deck, there’s still plenty of grass to enjoy, or space to plan your own dreamy landscape. A well-kept wooden privacy fence runs the perimeter of the yard. Now, while there’s no word on whether the chicken coop stays, but if you’re ready to give backyard chicken keeping a go, I bet it’s negotiable.
