Tucked back between Hillcrest Road and Preston Road, Northwood Hills is a quiet, established neighborhood with treed lots and easy access to Interstate 635. In fact, Realtor Kylah Boyd with Texas Urban Living Realty calls the neighborhood a hidden gem.
She’s gotten to know it pretty well since she listed this beautifully remodeled traditional located at 6502 Covecreek Place last month.
“A lot of the people that attended the open houses said they weren’t even aware that neighborhood even existed,” she said. “The neighborhood really is kind of a hidden gem.”
“The neighborhood is older, established, with tree-lined drives,” she continued. “Most of the neighbors are older. Great school districts and also in the territory for private Jesuit Charter Schools. The turnover rate is very minimal, people buy and stay.”
“It’s Dallas, but the Richardson school district and the neighborhood is quaint, quiet, established and tree-lined, but 20 minutes in any direction from all of the fun stuff,” Boyd said.
Its proximity to the Northwood Club and prime golfing is also a motivator, as is how close it is to both work and play.
“It’s centrally located because you can hop on the freeway and be in Downtown Dallas in 20 minutes, and has over 165 restaurants within a five-mile radius,” Boyd said.
But besides the amazing location, Boyd said this Northwood Hills house has gotten a luxury makeover. Boyd said an investor purchased the home and renovated it with an eye toward taking advantage of the serene neighborhood to create an opulent retreat.
The four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath home has 3,478 square feet of living space that has been completely updated and is move-in ready.
Outside, the exterior has been spruced up, and a new front door signals that the inside will feel new as well — despite being almost 40 years old.
Inside, new flooring and finishes invite the buyer in — the home is brighter and more modern than it was pre-reno.
A family room boasts a fireplace and a wet bar with a wine cooler. The kitchen has all new granite countertops with stainless steel appliances. And a family-ready mudroom is poised to keep all that back-to-school accoutrement organized and ready to go.
A separate media room provides space for family movie nights (or eliminates those fights over who controls the remote, since there’s space for another TV in the family room).
“The things that I absolutely love about this house, and that stand out to me, is the amazing master bathroom — it’s pretty bomb — and the neighborhood,” Boyd said.
And what a master. The suite itself is spacious and calm, and it’s been designed to be that place to recharge. Giant walk-in his and her closets, an LED Bluetooth speaker system in the master bath, a free-standing soaker tub, and bountiful vanity space (as well as a marked absence of plaid wallpaper from the pre-renovation days) are just some of the updates the suite received.
Outside, an oversized patio and an in-ground spa complete the retreat feel of the home.
The home is listed for $699,900, and the next open house is July 15, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
