Share News:


For this week’s Suburb Sunday, we head just north of LBJ to check out three Richardson homes for sale with unique styles from the 70s and today, ranging from approximately $280,000 to $750,000.

Richardson is located northeast of Dallas, just south of Plano. About 106,000 people call Richardson home, where they enjoy top-rated Richardson ISD schools, low crime rates, and a first-class venue like Eisemann Center.

This “first-ring” suburbs offers a range of housing options in both new and well-established neighborhoods. Housing is more affordable than many areas of DFW—the average sales price of a house in 2013 was $209,900. One-bedroom apartments in Richardson average about $875 a month and two bedrooms average around $1,300 a month.


Address: 200 Lost Canyon Court

  • Five bedrooms, five bathrooms
  • 5,174 square feet
  • $749,900

This beautiful 2000-built home, fresh off of $50,000 in updates, has a sweeping grand staircase, rich hardwoods, and plantation shutters that welcome you into the open floor plan. The gourmet kitchen has stainless steel appliances, two dishwashers, a built-in refrigerator with custom cabinetry, and granite countertops. This Canyon Creek home near UT-Dallas features a downstairs master suite and bookshelf-lined study with floor to ceiling shelves — and a library ladder!

The home is listed by Marilyn Frederick of Ebby Halliday – 190 Richardson.


Address: 6 Bryn Mawr Circle

  • Four bedrooms, two bathrooms
  • 2,229 square feet
  • $329,500

This white brick, 1973-built home is described as a New Traditional style, but we love the subtle Spanish, mission-style touches this home features. Located in University Estates near E. Belt Line Road and N. Plano Road, this bright and airy home’s interior features an inset painted-brick fireplace, wood beamed ceilings, and views from the custom square windows into the backyard. There are designer touches throughout, and special his and hers closets in the master suite, dual vanities , nd a spa-like frame-less glass shower.

The home is listed by Lance Taylor of Keller Williams Frisco.


Address: 1801 Auburn Drive

  • Four bedrooms, three bathrooms
  • 2,506 square feet
  • $279,000

This 1974-built, two-story home in Duck Creek near E. Arapaho Road and N. Jupiter Road feels more spacious than its already-generous 2,506 square feet. The flexible floor plan looks from the large living room into the dining room then out to the kitchen into the den. A vaulted wood-beam ceiling in the step-down living area and rich wood paneled walls leading upstairs are beautiful accents to this lovely Richardson home.
