Open house: Sunday, Sept. 24, 3:30-5 p.m. 

The custom home at 7115 Shook Ave. in Lakeshore Hills has so much going for it: a hot neighborhood, excellent elementary, and gorgeous renovations, to start. This house has four bedrooms, four bathrooms, two living areas, two dining areas, and 3,899 square feet on one story, built in 1955 and remodeled in 2011. It sits on the southwest shores of White Rock Lake, near Garland Road and Gaston Avenue. 

The long list of updates includes new electrical, three-zone HVAC, plumbing, water heater, aluminum-clad Pella windows, and landscaping. The kitchen impresses with soft-close alder cabinets, a bi-level island with breakfast bar, quartz countertops, and stainless steel appliances, including a gas cooktop. The oversized master suite features a sweet bathroom with contemporary soaker tub, dual sinks, and separate shower. There’s a 900-square-foot attached guest quarters with a kitchen and its own separate attached garage — perfect for a mother-in-law suite. The low-maintenance backyard offers a large concrete patio, pretty landscaping, built-in grill, horizontal board-on-board privacy fence, and an arching shade tree to keep it all a little cooler. 

This custom renovated ranch was listed April 23 by Cliff Kessler with Allie Beth Allman & Assoc. for $1.089 million.
