Spring Branch Drive in White Rock Valley is one of those streets that buyers often ask their agents about, so when one of those homes goes on the market, it’s an opportunity, says White Rock Lake area expert agent Jenny Capritta, a RE/MAX DFW Associates Realtor. Her listing, our Inwood National Bank Home of the Week, is a perfect example of what White Rock Valley has to offer and is an opportunity to purchase a home with great bones that you can make your own.
First off, the location is outstanding. This 1962-built home is nestled in a coveted neighborhood with mature trees, great Richardson ISD schools, and access to the White Rock Creek Trail and White Rock Lake. White Rock Valley is also home to White Rock Stables, a 14-acre full care horse stable near Flag Pole Hill.
Upon entry, there’s a large formal living and dining area to your right, featuring a bay window with plantation shutters and a beautiful light fixture. In the kitchen, stainless steel appliances include oven, dishwasher, electric cooktop, and built-in microwave.
Recent improvements include a new roof, HVAC system, and hot water heater. This pier and beam home is to be sold as is and best suited for those who will remodel, Capritta says. “It’s a perfect opportunity to add a second story, which we’re seeing a lot of in this neighborhood. Plus, it’s a great value to get into White Rock Elementary.”
The Dallas home is zoned for Richardson ISD’s top-notch White Rock Elementary, Lake Highlands Junior High, and Lake Highlands High School.
Capritta says this home is “ideal for those who love a sense of community.” There is plenty of community pride in this hot part of town, where nearly every local business has a Wildcat sponsor sticker in the window and often multiple school years-worth. Come December, Santa, his reindeer (courtesy of White Rock Stables), and dozens of elves parade through White Rock Valley for the Jingle Ride, collecting new, unwrapped toys from residents watching the parade. Plus it’s walking distance to Lake Highlands Town Center.
