If you’ve been on the hunt for a transitional home in the Lakewood Elementary attendance area, have we got a treat for you! This stunner on Bucknell Drive is everything. Come see why and take a closer look at this fabulous Friday Four Hundred pick.

Beauty On Bucknell Up For Grabs In Lakewood Elementary

Whether you’re a first-time buyer looking for a starter home or a young family on the hunt for a place with great schools, this three-bedroom, two-full-bathroom beauty will do the trick. It’s sleek and chic with a massive backyard to boot! And every finish has been revamped for easy, breezy, contemporary living. 

Leigh Burns with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty tells us, “The house is great because the inside and outside spaces flow together seamlessly. For anyone who loves brunches on a deck, cocktail parties where you can host guests in an open and updated floor plan, and lawn soirées, this house is for you.”

Striking Curb Appeal On Bucknell Drive

“The neighborhood is spectacular because many of the homes, including this home, open up directly to the White Rock Trail,” adds Burns. “The lake and trails are a natural oasis and it’s hard to believe that we are just 10 minutes from downtown. Additionally, this neighborhood is located in the Lakewood Elementary district.”

And speaking of the neighborhood, let’s talk curb appeal. A fresh coat of paint and striking wood front porch works wonders on this Bucknell beauty. It offers a dramatic first impression that’s on-trend for midcentury ranches. And the mature trees only add to the appeal.

Light And Bright Living Spaces

Step inside and you’ll marvel at the oversized windows, filling the home with natural light. There are gorgeous hardwood floors and an easy flow throughout from the main living to the gracious kitchen.

The chef will love the ample counter space and stainless steel appliances, while subway tiles and open shelving add a modern touch. Plus, there is a sunny breakfast nook to make your own with easy access outdoors. 

Fully Remodeled To Turn Heads

Burns says, “It’s a great buy for this neighborhood because it is fully remodeled with a new roof and updated plumbing and electrical.”

In fact, the home was completely overhauled in 2019. This means new electrical, plumbing, roof, windows, floors, and doors! The thoughtful renovation includes designer touches at every turn. 

A Tranquil Master Suite

In the master you’ll find a barn door leading to a stunning en-suite bath. A double sink vanity and frameless shower with floor-to-ceilings tiles and river rock floor create a tranquil look and feel.

Lush Backyard With Massive Outdoor Deck

But the highlights don’t stop there! Outside, you’ll enjoy a massive deck for relaxing, surrounded by a lushly landscaped lawn. Living here also puts you steps from Ridgewood Park with close proximity to the trails and recreation of White Rock Lake. And the neighbors along Bucknell are a bonus too!

“The neighbors are extremely friendly and helpful,” says Burns. “From letting you borrow a tool or some eggs, to talking about sports and entertainment, to sipping some vino on wine down Wednesday.”
