9911 Estate Ln If you want to see the power of a smart renovation to increase a home’s market value, look no further than today’s Thursday Three Hundred, a Lake Highlands reno at 9911 Estate Ln.

This ranch-style house sold in August 2010 for $190,000. Today, it’s listed by Travis Finlan at Ebby Halliday for $350,000.

Obviously, the market has changed dramatically in the past five years, and the increase also reflects the popularity of the Lake Highlands area. But the renovation helped change it from a dud to a stud.

This 1962 home is a 3-3 with 1,753 square feet, located in the North Lake Estates neighborhood near Audelia and Walnut Hill Lane. The house is zoned for Richardson ISD, consistently ranked near the top of all Texas school districts.

The updates started with a total interior gut and larger overall footprint that includes hardwood floors, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, customizable Elfa shelving, low-E windows, tons of storage, and a hardwired security camera system with smartphone viewing capabilities. Let’s take a look inside.
