Open Floorplan and Sleek Updates Transform this Lake Highlands Home

Share News:

The right renovations have the power to transform a house from dated to darling. We’ve found just such an example in Lake Highlands, where an open floorplan and sleek updates have transformed a 1974 home into real eye candy. 

Our Thursday Three Hundred at 11029 McCree Rd. hits all the high notes with clean lines, lots of natural light, and long lines of sight that make it seem even bigger than its 1,950 square feet. 

Sitting near near Walnut Hill Lane and Plano Road, this property is zoned for Richardson ISD and has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and two living areas. 

Before its transformation, this house had multi-toned brick and little plant life in front. Now, painted a crisp white with fresh landscaping, it stands out and looks sharp. A new roof adds to the appeal. 

Inside, high ceilings add visual volume to the living and dining areas, anchored by a stone fireplace. Recessed lights are a great feature and the dining area has a new retro-style chandelier. Laminate floors look like the real deal in a cool gray tone. 

Further back in the house, the kitchen features new granite countertops, white Shaker-style cabinets, white subway tile backsplash, an island, designer fixtures, and views of the backyard. This space is open to the second living area with a glass slider leading to the back. 

All three bedrooms are good sized with laminate floors. The master has an ensuite bath with dual sinks, granite countertops, white Shaker-style cabinets, and a fabulous walk-in shower with frameless glass door, large-format tile on the walls and a cool hex tile on the shower floor. The other bathroom is like a smaller version of the master with its sleek good looks. 

In back, enjoy extensive landscaping, a new 6-foot privacy fence, and covered patio.

This Lake Highlands home was listed May 8 by Svetlana Grujic with Svetlana Grujic for $389,000.
