Lake Highlands IHOTW

The love for Lake Highlands runs deep. It’s commonplace to find people that grew up there, moved away to begin careers then moved back as soon as they could to raise their families. Richardson ISD is also a big draw, with fierce school loyalty in every part of Lake Highlands. It has the perks of a suburb without really being one because it’s close to everything.

If you long for the TV series version of a neighborhood, where you are actual friends with your neighbors, the kids really run out to play after school, and people are engaged and active in the community, this Lake Highlands custom home is move-in ready!

Donald Wright with the Wrighthouse Group at Gilchrist & Company Real Estate just listed, this gorgeous two-story home at 9778 Spring Branch Drive for $1.12 million.

8630 Angora Front

By now you know the motto of East Dallas’ weirdest neighborhood: “Keep Little Forest Hills Funky.” In this neighborhood that reminds most people of Austin, you’ll find tiny cottages and bungalows with low ceilings and wood siding. Some of them have been added on, some have been remodeled, and some have been renovated inside and out. But the neighborhood remains a bastion of diversity in taste and architecture.

That’s what’s so remarkable about 8630 Angora: It’s so very different from what you’d expect to find in Little Forest Hills. This two-bedroom, two-bathroom 1980s soft contemporary has high ceilings, big windows, and open spaces — all a far cry from the typical cottage lining the hilly streets of the neighborhood.
