Share News:

Svetlana Grujic with Compass has an eye for design. In fact, her head-turning listings are garnering attention and selling quick! Case in point — our Friday Five Hundred from last week is already pending. But do not fret! She has a new property in up for grabs that is equally impressive. So much so, we couldn’t help but share it with you right away.

From Drab To Fab

Enter the four-bedroom, three-full-bathroom beauty on Faircrest Drive. The Lake Highlands looker is a modern ranch that was taken to the studs and completely rebuilt with timeless touches throughout.

“There are so many homes for sale in Lake Highlands that are in original condition or remodeled by just attending the cosmetic side,” Grujic said. “In a buyer’s market, my goal is to stand out with excellent quality backed by a one year craftsmanship warranty, extensive remodel only keeping the frame of the home for character purposes, and unique design. Attention to detail is an imperative in every remodel I have done.”

Highlighting A Modern Bohemian Feel

Clearly, this is what makes this Lake Highlands ranch stand out. The 2,233-square-foot gem affords a fresh and open feel with gorgeous designer updates that elevate the entire home. In fact, Grujic reveals that staging played a huge role in highlighting modern-bohemian feel of this home, with custom-made art by Dallas artist Abigail Backlund.

Hardware Is Jewelry For The Home

“To me, hardware in the kitchen, and light fixtures are like jewelry,” she adds. “This kitchen has designer bone-and-brass hardware and designer brass fixtures throughout. You will also see the fireplace is framed with Italian tile — yet to be seen in Dallas.”

A Light-Filled, Open Floor Plan

Not to be overlooked is the gracious open floor-plan, which Grujic says “is a must for young buyers and perfect for entertaining with stunning light oak hardwood floors and Italian quartz countertops.”

She points out that it’s “bright and airy with an abundance of light” which was achieved with stunning big bay windows in the dining room and breakfast area.

“I like to make a statement that is timeless but also fun and inviting,” she says. “We have seen plenty of white and grey kitchen cabinets. They will always be in style, but emerald green will make you want to invite friends over and sip on some cocktails!”

Fabulous French Door Master

We are also head-over-heels for the master bedroom, which comes oversized with French doors that lead to a backyard oasis with a patio space for lounging or dining al fresco. “Added square footage allowed me to achieve a huge master shower with very memorable and fun geometric tile on the floor and a big walk-in closet,” says Grujic.

Perfect For Young Families

In addition, “it is a perfect home for a young family, that love character and charm!” Grujic said. “Also great resale value, because there is no other home like it. It’s a dreamy neighborhood surrounded by beautiful mature trees, and superbly situated in sought after Richardson ISD, just minutes away from the Lake Highlands Trail. Like Katy Trail in Uptown, but better because the sunset views on this trail are to die for!”

Svetlana Grujic with Compass has listed 9957 Faircrest Drive for $560,000.
