Swank It Up In This Chimney Hills Townhome

By Nikki Barringer / November 19, 2019 / 0 Comments

Today’s word is “potential.” As in this townhome off of Interstate 635 and Abrams has so much potential. First of all, it’s a townhome, but it doesn’t have any shared walls. That’s one in the win column. Now remember what we said, it’s full of potential, and therefore priced accordingly. The seller isn’t interested in […]

By Shelby Skrhak / October 19, 2018 / 5 Comments

When the postcard came in the mail, I read the words “Lake Highlands High School Class of 1998 20-Year Reunion” and audibly groaned. Not because I don’t love my Wildcat alma mater; I really do.

Holiday in The Highlands Home Tour Features Gracious Ranches With Thoughtful Renovations

By Joanna England / December 4, 2013 / 10 Comments

Full of family homes and interesting architecture from myriad styles and schools, Lake Highlands is an incredible neighborhood that spans a broad swath of northeast Dallas. A stone’s throw from White Rock Lake, the area not only has views and amenities, but considering that much of the area is inside the Richardson ISD attendance boundaries means it attracts families with school-aged kids.

But not everyone uproots when the kids graduate and move off to college on their own. In fact, there’s a lovely community of women in the Lake Highlands Women’s League that has truly stood the test of time. Each year this group donates money and time to great causes throughout their community, funding their endeavors with their annual Holiday in the Highlands Home Tour.

This year the Sunday, Dec. 6, tour will include some amazing homes, but you’ll love the people inside these great houses, too. Take Suzanne Knudson, for instance, who, along with her husband, Mark, is opening up their Lake Highlands home for this year’s tour. Suzanne took a few moments to answer some questions about her house, her community, and this year’s home tour.

Keep reading to find out how you can win a pair of tickets to this year’s home tour after the jump!
