Share News:

Open house alert: This charmer will be open 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

You’ll love living in picturesque Old Lake Highlands in this updated mid-century home, just steps from the Dixon Branch Greenbelt Park and White Rock Lake. This three-bedroom at 9515 Peninsula Drive, which is listed for $330,000, comes to us from “Getting the Dirt” Facebook group member Catherine Blevens.

Light original hardwood floors and ecru walls make this 1959-built cottage feel bright and airy. A bay window, arched doorways, stained glass windows, and a skylight in the kitchen are just some of the charming details in this White Rock home.

The floor plan optimizes its 1,335 square footage, with a full bathroom, master and secondary bedrooms on one side of the home, and a third bedroom, which could be an office, on the other end. The master bedroom has great natural light, ceiling fan, and two closets. Plus, if you’ve got your mind on renovations, a bath would be easy to add on the back of the house, just off the master bedroom.

The Old Lake Highlands home near Buckner Blvd. sits on a hill on a .21 acre lot, a short walk away from White Rock Lake in a serene, established neighborhood full of mature trees. The backyard is spacious and includes a deck to enjoy the outdoors. A detached garage has been converted into a storage shed but would make a great studio space.

You can see this great home for yourself this Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 3 p.m.

    I can’t see this great home due to all the overgrown vegetation. Too bad they couldn’t clean some of that up.
