When School Carpool Lines Come Screaming Back, You’ll Wish You Lived Here

Share News:

You remember school carpool lines, right? The car that just won’t scoot up, the parent that infuriatingly skips the line and somehow merges right in. Well, when the time comes that our living rooms are no longer our classrooms, you’ll appreciate how close this North Highlands Estates home is to the private school corridor.

TJ Frank of Rogers Healy and Associates has the listing for 11717 Welch Road, located right across from Hockaday, walking distance to The Lamplighter School, and three minutes away from Jesuit Dallas. School carpool just got a whole lot easier.

This stately five-bedroom, three-bath, and one half-bath home has a spacious 3,520 square feet, which is set on a huge 0.36 acre lot. There’s a circular drive up front and a gated rear driveway that really makes carpool a breeze. But enough about bleary mornings driving to school because TGIS (Thank God It’s Summer) and you don’t have to put on real pants for anybody.

Remodeled in the last four years, this 1964-built home features gorgeous hardwoods, an updated kitchen, and a spa-like master bath. To the left as you walk in, a large formal dining and living area with fireplace that feels light, bright, and totally usable.

The kitchen has darling navy and white cabinets with glass doors and gold hardware for a pretty, clean look. New stainless steel appliances include double oven, gas range, built-in microwave, built-in refrigerator/freezer, and dishwasher. A farm sink, quartz countertops, white tile backsplash, and herringbone wood floors complete the look.

Across from the kitchen sits the huge family room that’s full of possibility. Make one end a study, or break up the long 27 x 13 room into a few different seating vignettes. There’s easy access to the huge backyard that has a few different seating areas, as well.

The master bedroom is located on the first floor with an updated bathroom including dual sinks, separate makeup vanity, soaker tub, and standalone shower.

The other four bedrooms are located upstairs with an additional sitting area at the top of the stairs.

Lots of possibility and lots to love in this perfectly-located Northwest Dallas beauty.

TJ Frank of Rogers Healy and Associates has listed 11717 Welch Road for $915,000.
