Cedar Creek Lake is a popular go-to location for North Texans who need a little time by the water. It’s a perfect spot to while away a three-day weekend, take the boat out, maybe paddleboard a little. For us, you can’t do much better than Long Cove, a fantastic community of gorgeous luxury properties that make lakefront living a breeze.

“Long Cove was made with family in mind. Beyond the homes and amenities, the heart of our community is focused on reconnecting with those closest to you. Forge meaningful conversations and create lasting memories without any distractions,” said sales director Josh Ellis. “We wanted a place where you can escape close to home and build relationships with new families like yours. We’ve created a haven where you can be a kid with your kids and let the family feel safe to run free, as you once did.”

Doesn’t that sound dreamy?

Today’s Friday Five Hundred comes to your eyeballs from Little Elm, and it’s a lake side 1980s soft contemporary to get your weekend mojo going. Perfect as a main residence or a place to while away your spare hours with a boatload of friends, admiring the gorgeous sunsets over Lake Lewisville.

It’s rare to find a home that would work well as both a main residence and a vacation property, but 840 Highridge Dr. fits that bill to a tee! With four bedrooms, three full and one half bath, and two-story sweeping views of the lake and downtown Frisco, there’s not much more you can ask for in this contemporary lakehouse.

And considering that it’s in the high-achieving Little Elm ISD, you could raise an outdoorsy family in this beautiful waterfront abode, too.
