Lake Ridge Estates

Color can be a beautiful thing. We’re often told to repaint our homes to a neutral palette when selling to appeal to as many buyers as possible. But some sellers buck that trend and keep the varied hues in their house. The results can be memorable.

Our Thursday Three Hundred will color you happy with its navy blue living room, sage green kitchen, bright bedrooms, and stripes on some walls and ceilings. It even has vintage lavender tiles in one bathroom.

Located at 9847 Shoreview Rd. in Lake Highlands’ Lake Ridge Estates, this property exudes personality and style with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,704 square feet on one story, built in 1958. No one who visits this house will get it mixed up in their memory with another.

Of course, there are lots of other selling features, like hardwood floors in the common areas and bedrooms, slate tile in the kitchen, an updated kitchen with gorgeous granite countertops, recent HVAC replacement, and a fantastic location near Northwest Highway and Audelia Road. It’s a hop, skip, and jump from the north shores of White Rock Lake and Flag Pole Hill. Bonus: it’s in the attendance zone for Hexter Elementary, which earns a “9” out of 10 from greatschools.org.

Cute and sweet from the curb, this 1958 traditional ranch packs quite a punch once you walk inside. Truly, this is one of those homes where you take notes on the remodeled spaces, as the sellers have really made the most of every square inch of this beautiful Lake Ridge Estates house.

Not only that, but it’s on one of the best streets in the neighborhood — Ferndale Road — and is inside Richardson ISD. Jump for more on this adorable home from Nathan Grace agent Amy Timmerman of PickaPerch.com.
