Walk To Alamo Drafthouse From This Updated Richardson Heights Home

Share News:

The three-bedroom, two-bathroom ranch located at 705 Nottingham Drive in Richardson is completely updated from top to bottom. Like stickers-still-on-the-windows updated, and even though they did a fantastic job with materials that are price point appropriate, that’s not the best part of this house.

The best part of this house is the location. It’s close to US 75 for an easy commute to Dallas.

Also right along 75 and basically a walk out your front door? Alamo Drafthouse, Cinnaholic, Haystack Burger, Industrial Pizza + Brew, Communion Coworking Space, Coffee Shop and Restaurant and there’s a Monkey King on its way.

Richardson is where you go when it’s time to hit the suburbs, but you’re not ready for “Dallas you” to die.

It’s centrally located, filled with like-minded people, AND trendy restaurants.

If that sounds like something you want to be a part of then head on up to Nottingham Drive.

We’ll start with front door. It’s not a traditional ranch-style home front door and shout out to that art deco glass for a pop of something different. Inside you’ll fall in love with the wood floors and dark wood plantation shutters. (Two hallelujah hands they’re not white.)

Check out the decorative tile right inside the door too. It’s the perfect place for a fun patterned tile. Not too much, but not too little. THOUGHTFUL.

Immediately on the left from the foyer is a formal living room and on the right, a recently tiled dining room with a modern chandelier.

Love the cool gray walls and the elongated hexagonal tile in the kitchen, crisp white cabinets and neutral granite counters.

The bathrooms look fresh and clean and the master has a variation of the elongated gray tile in the shower. The shower door is a modified barn style which at first you might want to scoff at because barn doors are everywhere, but in smaller space it’s the perfect solution and the perfect fit. It slides side to side and stays out of the way so the only annoying thing in the bathroom will be dried clumps of toothpaste in the sinks.

Out back there’s a small fenced yard, covered porch, detached two-car garage and an electric gate to the alley. So fancy. Make this little updated stunner your own. It’s 1,718 square feet and has two living areas.

This updated ranch at 705 Nottingham Drive in Richardson was recently reduced to $384,900 by Laura Morris with Ebby Halliday.

    I love this write up and this area. I moved from Deep Ellum to Richarson because we started a family and it still feels kind of trendy and fun here even though it is a great place to raise a family. I’m a real estate broker. I moved here in 2013. In 2012 I sold a home on Nottingham that was nice and remodeled for $157,000. How is it now that this how right down the street it $384,000? I love seeing real estate grow in value, but this is getting ridiculous. This home is a flip. I’m not against flipping and gentrification of older homes, but $224 per square foot 800 feet from Central Expressway? I guess that’s why it’s been sitting on market for 64 days. Hey, I still love the write up about our neighborhood! Can I get some love for my listing on 1243 Danville? It’s almost $100,000 less than this one and next to Cottonwood Park as opposed to a major highway.

    Not sure who decided a caption regarding location near a bar would be a selling feature, but you may want to reconsider. Lovely home though.
