Remodeled Ranch at 4310 Echo Glen Drive Highlights Design and Staging Brilliance

Share News:

Absolutely striking. Those were the first words out of my mouth when I looked at this gorgeous Preston Hollow renovation. The effect comes, in part, from a really well-conceived and beautifully executed renovation. The other star of the show? Staging. It’s impossible not to imagine your own life fitting in this home, with all those clean, white walls and furniture perfectly proportioned to the space. This one’s not going to linger. Especially if that amazing back deck has anything to say about it.

Today’s Saturday Six Hundred is listed by Kyle Brinkley of Brinkley Property Group for $699,900, and it’s a real catch. With four bedrooms and three bathrooms in 3,074 square feet, 4310 Echo Glen Drive is spacious, bright, and so brand-spanking new inside, it completely belies its 1971 construction date. The renovation wrapped up this year. It’s so current and so thorough, it may as well be a new build.  Come take a gander!

First, take in that view. From the front door all the way to the back deck, stark white walls set off against warm hardwood floors create a glorious corridor of light, running smack dab through the center of the house. It certainly leaves an impression!

Again, the staging here plays such an important role in showing off the home’s abundant strengths. It’s downright aspirational. Oh, yes. I would like to be the person who lives in this house with real art on the walls and this stylish furniture, completely absent of children’s handprints! Sign me up!

The formal living room is staged as an office, which, frankly, is how it’s more likely to be used these days. The formal dining room is elegant and bright.

That family room is staged to absolute perfection and flows so well with the open-concept kitchen. The fireplace is both cozy and contemporary with its simple wood-beam mantle.  The vaulted ceiling makes everything feel even grander.

Ah! A splash of color! The built-in hutch in the breakfast nook provides a welcome surprise for the eyes. Against the cool white of the kitchen, that soft blue plays beautifully.

And the designer kitchen? It leaves very little to be desired. Oh, wait. I see the wine fridge. Make that nothing. It leaves nothing to be desired. It features Kitchen Aid appliances, custom cabinetry, quartz counters, and brass hardware. Just gorgeous.

There’s a hint of that deck through the back windows, but we’ll get the full treatment later.

The master is lovely and staged very smartly. It includes not one, but two walk-in closets and a tranquil master bathroom with double vanity and walk-in shower.

I’ll skip past the photos of the secondary bedrooms (they’re unstaged, so they’re nice but unremarkable). I did pause for a bit on this bathroom, however. I’m gaga for that tile. I just adore it. Will I still like it as much in 10 years? Hard to say. But I love it today and I’m happy they chose it.

And here’s the deck. It’s just cool. The covered area (with ceiling fans!) makes a wonderful outdoor dining space and with three levels, it’s easy to see how functional an entertaining space this could be. With a great big lawn, it’s idea for wearing out kids and dogs, all tucked safely behind a motorized gate. It’s all very practical and attractive and can’t possibly stay on the market long. If you were going to spend your holiday weekend house hunting, better make this your first stop!
