There’s something so satisfying about a big house renovation with before-and-after photos, and we’ve found on in Lake Highlands’ L Streets. The flippers took a dated house and worked some magic to create a home with an open floorplan and clean look.

Our Thursday Three Hundred is at 9659 Leaside Dr., near Walnut Hill Lane and Plano Road. 

“The vision behind this house was to open up the walls — we love open floorplans — and we completely updated everything we touched,” said Kenneth Huggins, a Realtor with Skyline Realty who also mentors families on how to flip houses, including this one, through the family-owned Huggins Family Real Estate. “The L streets are very popular in Lake Highlands and we wanted to create something to be completely up to date [here].” 

This home has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, two dining areas, a sunroom, and 2,312 square feet on one story, built in 1959. Jump to see some of the pre-renovation photos!

10226 Eastwood Dr.

This 1952-built, post-war ranch in Casa View Haven’s Eastwood Park recently received a refresh from an investor. The neighborhood is known for its quaint one-story homes and mature trees.

(Full disclosure: This home is in my neighborhood, Casa View Haven, where I have lived for almost 11 years.) 

Casa View Haven, when I moved here in 2007, had a large proportion of renter-occupied homes, with about half of the owner-occupied post-war ranches housing nice, quiet folks that most likely qualified for AARP memberships. Though I wouldn’t call us urban pioneers or early adopters of this enclave in Far East Dallas, we’ve been here long enough to see the tide turn. In fact, on Eastwood Drive, where our Thursday Three Hundred is located, we’ve seen four flips in the past 18 months. 

The thing is, 10226 Eastwood Dr. is listed for a record-breaking $310,000 — a new high for the neighborhood. We’ve seen several flips in Casa View Haven recently, but this is the first from Jared Childs of Cornerstone Realty. Many houses in this neighborhood have three bedrooms and one bathroom, and a few have additions on the back of the structure or garage conversions. This home is one of the larger three-bedroom, two-bath houses in the neighborhood, clocking in at 1,740 square feet with a den added on to the rear of the house.  

That might be part of the reason why this particular home is priced above $300K, but despite the lofty price, it’s still on the market at $170 per square foot.
