This week we take you to Lakewood Heights for two timeless traditional gems with the it-factor. What gives a home the it-factor, you ask? Location, looks, and layout – and these two have it all.

Even better, they are both feed into sought-after Mockingbird Elementary! Located just three-minutes apart, our Splurge vs. Steal presents two great Lakewood Heights homes, and both are under $700,000. Take your pick!

Splurge: Lakewood Heights Stunner With Custom Touches For $699,999

To begin, we set our sights on Lakeshore Drive – a quintessential street in Lakewood Heights. And this one just might be the best home on the block! The four-bedroom, three-full-and-two-half-bathroom traditional was recently renovated to include all the custom touches.

Among these are gorgeous quarter-sawn oak hardwoods, a light and bright interior, and richly appointed kitchen. It has stained cabinetry, granite counters, and newer stainless appliances. 

What’s even more enticing is the generous open layout. The home offers a neutral color palette for buyers to create their own look and feel, plus tons of sunlight with ample windows.

There is a French door study, a charming dining area, and an inviting master suite. It comes oversized with a huge en-suite bath clad in designer tiles and featuring a separate garden tub and glass shower. And of course, a massive walk-in closet to boot! 

For the consummate host, nothing compares to the media/game room with bar and nearby powder bath. Better yet, take the party outdoors to the covered patio and fenced lawn. All of this is tucked behind an electric gate, complete with two-car-garage.

Steal: Monticello Avenue 1950’s Beauty With Tons Of Potential For $499,000

For $200,000 less you can own this lovingly maintained 1950’s beauty on a gracious lot in Lakewood Heights. The three-bedroom, two-bathroom home is ideally located near shopping, dining, and Whole Foods. Plus, White Rock Lake is within a short drive. But with this mature lot, you may want to create an outdoor retreat of your own! 

Here, mature trees and a private board-on-board fence create a peaceful place to call home. But the inside is equally impressive! You’ll enjoy 1,770 square feet to entertain. Light pours in from oversized windows. 

One gracious room has a fabulous vaulted and beamed ceiling with wood paneled walls and classic brick fireplace. Just imagine what you could do with a little paint and some imagination! It could be your master, a media room, or more. There’s tons of potential here!

And how about the retro pink bath! We think it’s a keeper. Other highlights include a two-car-garage, updated windows, roof and HVAC, plus sprinklers for the front lawn.
