This Lake Highlands Soft Contemporary Is No Cookie Cutter

Nora Lane of Allie Beth Allman describes this week’s High Caliber Home of the Week, a four-bedroom, five and half-bath, as comfortable, cool, and different in a great way. “No cookie-cutter home here,” the listing agent says. Can I get an Amen?

Nestled in a quiet cul-de-sac in Lake Highlands, you’ll fall in love with the fabulous drive up. I did! In fact, the exterior is so stunning, I would stomach any number of updates needed inside for this 1978-built home. But no need!

All the updates are done, including updated kitchen, bathrooms, and den, new AC units, new engineered hardwoods, and new carpet upstairs. All you have to do is walk in and enjoy the open living area with high-ceilings, wood-burning fireplace, and wall-to-wall windows.

The updated eat-in kitchen features white cabinetry, gorgeous tile backsplash, granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances. No separate formal dining here. The dining here in the kitchen is light, bright, and usable.

Located just off the kitchen, there is a large, beautiful office space with a separate entrance in front and nice big picture window. Head over to Calloways on Greenville and fill up that walled off patio with beautiful container plants and flowers. The office has a wet bar and tons of built-ins.

Lane says there’s a mother-in-law suite upstairs with three additional bedrooms. The master downstairs has a fireplace and fabulous new bathroom with a shower to die for.

“It’s a versatile home that meets a variety of needs for a variety of homeowners,” Lane says. “Families or empty nesters, it’s a fantastic home. To use an old phrase, my mom would call this a honey for the money!”

Nora Lane has listed 8111 Windy Terrace Circle for $799,000.
