Lake Highlands Estates home

One of the coveted neighborhoods in Lake Highlands Estates is the L Streets. Our Thursday Three Hundred at 8932 Lockhaven Dr. is in this prime area, built in 1954 and in pristine condition.

Sitting on a corner lot with a circular drive, this curb appeal cutie looks marvelous with its curb appeal — mature pecan trees really seal the deal. Inside, it’s updates galore, creating a modern look with lots of buyer “wants.”

This home has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,401 square feet on one story. Let’s take a look!

East Dallas MLS Broker Bake Off chair Christina Dewbre shows off a confection as emcee Kevin Caskey holds the live auction.

When the committee that puts together the East Dallas MLS’ Broker Bake Off (an annual Texas Association of Realtors PAC fundraiser and sweet event), they batted around a few themes before someone suggested a riff off of Sir Mix-a-Lot’s epic 90s ballad — “I Like Big Bundts And I Cannot Lie: Music Through The Ages.”

Naturally, said event chair Alyssa O’Brien Ramsey, it was an instant favorite.

Brokerages were tasked with creating confections that spoke to pop music’s biggest moments, and they did a bang-up job. In all, the Broker Bake Off managed to rake in some serious dough for the Texas Association of Realtors Political Action Committee to the tune of $15,800.

Lake Park Estates

We love a good “before and after,” and today’s Thursday Three Hundred is a beautiful example of renovations done right.

The home at 1010 Tipperary Dr. just hit the market Monday morning, with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, built in 1953. The owners updated the entire space, but the kitchen received the most dramatic transformation. It went from clunky and outdated to dreamy and bright with lots of desirable amenities. Kitchens sell houses, and the owners put their renovation dollars in the right places with their work in 2015.

Located in Lake Park Estates, this home is near N. Buckner Boulevard and E. Lake Highlands Drive. The smart layout maximizes the modest footprint and it feels much bigger than its 1,286 square feet, in part due to the abundant natural light, fresh paint in shades of white, and crisp plantation shutters. This listing won’t last long, so let’s take a look before it gets snatched up.

Greenville Wood Home for Sale | CandysDirt.com

Sunrooms are not particularly common features in North Texas homes. I suppose the oppressive summer heat makes people think they’re not useful, but we have many months of the year when a sunroom is perfectly delightful. That’s particularly true if the sunroom has a hot tub in it, like the one at our Thursday Three Hundred.

Located at 9064 Stone Creek Pl. in Lake Highlands, this home has that sunroom and quite a bit more. Think German Poggenpohl cabinets and Miele appliances in the kitchen, hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, skylight, and lots of space.

This home has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living areas, and 2,433 square feet on one story, built in 1982.
