Why not Woodbridge? Our latest Splurge vs. Steal puts the spotlight on two of the area’s best, tucked away in the relatively quiet and peaceful Lake Highlands neighborhood you never knew you needed. For those who don’t know, Woodbridge sits near the border of Richardson and is roughly defined by Audelia Road to the west, Forest Lane to the south, Shadow Way to the north, and railroad tracks to the east.
Jake’s Hamburgers and Casa Linda Bakery are local favorites. And on any given day you’ll find patrons having a grand ol’ time at The String Bean Restaurant or sipping a cold one over at Spring Creek Barbecue. There’s even an Alamo Drafthouse for date night and Sprouts Farmers Market for fresh produce nearby. But what really makes Woodbridge stand out is the price. Homes here are lovingly maintained and set back on larger lots. Most kids go to Richardson ISD schools, and you’ll find families and couples enjoying long walks with their dogs and strollers amidst lush greenbelts and parks.
With so much to love and so few homes currently on the market in Woodbridge, we couldn’t resist sharing two of its prized offerings. Both homes are ideally located and tastefully updated but with price points that are miles apart. Which would you choose, the Jackson Creek Splurge or the Oak Highland Steal? We would love to hear in the comments.
Splurge: Jackson Creek Stunner With Wooded Backyard And Spa-Like Master For $440K
Our splurge is really not a splurge at all, but it sure feels like it! This home comes surrounded by a wooded greenbelt in the gated and sought-after Creekside at Lake Highlands community. With the ultimate in privacy and a large nearly quarter-acre lot, it has a lot to offer. This includes three bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, and a gracious 2,847 square feet. Highlights include gorgeous hardwoods, soaring ceilings, and a French door study. We love the chef’s kitchen with charming breakfast nook and the oversized en-suite master. And when you want to get outside, there’s a covered patio and secluded fenced yard waiting for you. Snag this one before it’s gone!
Ellen Lewis with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty has listed 12250 Jackson Creek Drive for $440,000.
Steal: Oak Highland Drive Remodel With Quartz Master Bath And A Pool For $320K
New, new, new! Don’t knock it ‘til you tour it, folks. This one is a keeper. The four-bedroom, two-full-and-one-half-bathroom home is truly a steal with a 2,552-square-foot layout, plus new floors, new paint, and new quartz master bath. We love the tile selections and light and bright interiors. And there are lots of surprises too, like a mirrored wet bar off the kitchen, incredible sunroom, and newly re-plastered swimming pool. Perfect for a family or first-time homebuyer, this steal offers easy access to Hwy 635 and 75 with Richardson ISD schools. Where else can you get all this for the price?
