Roomy Lake Highlands Home Is So Very Extra

Share News:

Scenery and topography. Great schools and school support. Easy access to downtown. Relative affordability. Locally owned retail and dining. Diverse and neighborly neighbors… 

If you haven’t already guessed (maybe you’ve not yet ventured into northeast Dallas?), we’re talking about Lake Highlands. Few Dallas neighborhoods can beat how extra this area really is. And as the saying goes, if you can’t beat ‘em, most definitely join ‘em. This spacious corner property presents a great opportunity to join.

Just two blocks from Richardson ISD’s recently renovated White Rock Elementary is 9780 Broken Bow Road, a modern farmhouse-esque home with five bedrooms, 4½ baths, and a pool.

“Families of all shapes and sizes — including multi-generational — can appreciate this home’s many unique and desirable features and amenities,” said listing agent Phillip Tilger.

From generous lot size (.25 acres) and square footage (4,758 per tax), to multiple bedrooms and living spaces, to energy-efficient features, everything adds up to a pretty swell place to call home. 

Tilger added that the home was completely rebuilt in 2006, and the kitchen and primary bath have been further renovated within the last two years. 

Now if you’re looking to purchase a five-bedroom home, it’s probably safe to assume you’ll have a lot of occupants. And occupants have friends. Occupants and friends probably eat. Not a problem. The island kitchen with quartzite countertops features a built-in refrigerator, beverage fridge, adjacent breakfast room, custom cabinetry with soft-close drawers, a 6-burner gas cooktop, double oven with convection oven and more. 

Occupants and friends also hang out. The large first floor family room, second floor living room and game room and the covered outdoor living area and pool should accommodate everyone quite nicely.

Downstairs, the primary bedroom and an en suite secondary give Mom, Dad and perhaps Granny or Grampy, some quiet places to retreat when all the eating and hanging out get to be too much. 

Hopefully you’re sold by now, but if not, here’s some extra extras. The utility room has space for an extra refrigerator and has a pet washing station. An electric rolling gate secures the rear-access driveway Carpet, paint and roof were all redone in 2019, and there are two new premium HVAC units as well.

Phillip Tilger is ready to show 9780 Broken Bow Road, listed for $975,000. Give him a call at 214-734-8450 or email at
