PeavyThose windows. Those beautiful, enormous windows that give you a glimpse inside this mid-century gem and look out to this beautiful Old Lake Highlands neighborhood of 50s- and 60s-built homes. For this week’s Thursday Three Hundred, we check out this move-in ready mid-century home at 936 Peavy Road in the shadow of White Rock Lake at E. Lake Highlands Drive and Loop 12.

Huge new picture windows and stained wood columns make this 1956-built home stand out from the rest. Hardwood floors and fresh new paint are the first updates you see as you walk into this 1,348-square-foot home.

The living room flows seamlessly into casual dining and the kitchen that features stainless steel appliances including refrigerator, built-in microwave, stove/oven, and dishwasher. Granite countertops, ceramic tile backsplash, and new cabinets make this kitchen feel brand new.

The master suite is huge, bright, and airy. Just behind a pocket door, the fully-updated master bath features granite countertops, curbless walk-in shower with herringbone ceramic tile, and rain showerhead.

This home has a great floor plan with three bedrooms and two baths, all with beautiful hardwood floors and fully updated bathrooms.

Additional updates include a new roof and new covered patio that’s perfect for enjoying your spacious backyard with mature trees and a giant pecan tree. 

You’re minutes away from award-winning Victor Hexter Elementary School, Lake Highlands Park, Dixon Branch Creek, and the popular White Rock Lake Dog Park, just off N. Buckner Road. Walk to restaurants, running trails and best of all, White Rock Lake.
