Carrollton Cul-de-Sac Renovation Proves Suburban Can Be Sexy and Stylish, Too

Share News:

Prepare to be thrilled by a Carrollton house that proves suburban can be both sexy and stylish with its big renovation, sleek finishes, and excellent outdoor space. 

Located near Keller Springs Road and Marsh Lane at 2736 Shadygrove Ln. in Briarwyck Estates, this house is our Thursday Three Hundred with four bedrooms, two bathrooms, two dining areas, a home office, and 2,589 square feet on one story, built in 1983 and sitting on a third of a acre.

Carrollton is a dynamic northern suburb in DFW with 45,508 houses and a population of 127,279. It’s a 15-minute drive to Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport and 30 minutes to downtown Dallas, served by major highways and toll roads. With more than 1,230 developed acres, Carrollton’s park land per capita is one of the highest in North Texas and the city more than 35 award-winning public and private schools call Carrollton home. It’s a great place to call home. 

Sitting on a cul-de-sac, this home features new modern landscaping with custom steel planter boxes and fresh paint. 

Inside, every room looks polished and staged with plenty of on-trend touches that make it appealing. Think fresh Paint, new baseboards, hardwood floors throughout, LED lighting, and a mud room off the two-car attached garage, as well as a Nest thermostat, Skydrop smart sprinkler system, and motion sensor-activated lighting in the guest bath and mud room. 

In the formal dining room, a fireplace with floor-to-ceiling painted brick surround and custom mantle anchors the space, which looks marvelous. This room opens to the eat-in kitchen, a totally updated space with custom gray Shaker-style cabinets, leathered quartzite countertops, veined stone backsplash, recessed lights, commercial-grade stainless steel cooktop and oven. In the breakfast table area, a fabulously chic pendant lamp and a cushioned window bench.

Toward the back of the house, the living room is a large, with a tile floor and lots of natural light. Side note: love the large-scale art throughout the house. It makes a real impact. 

Hardwoods extend to the bedrooms which have new ceiling fans and the master has two walk-in closets. The bathrooms have the same leathered quartzite countertops and cabinets as the kitchen. Lovely. 

In back, an unexpectedly awesome 17-by-24 covered patio with iron wall art, grill, and built-in firepit with multiple seating areas and views of the grassy green space. This is a much nicer patio than you’d normally find in a home under $400K. 

This Carrollton home was listed April 17 by Michelle Small with JP & Associates Realtors Plano for $350,000.
