Nestled at the corner of Broken Bow Road,
we can’t take our eyes off this midcentury abode.
It’s been taken down to the studs and has a whole new look.
New roof, new paint, new windows, new nook.
And yes, it’s private, it’s made for entertaining.
A fireplace, tall ceilings, there’ll be no complaining.

Of course, it has a kitchen, for whipping up a spread.
And yes, those interiors have us dreaming in our beds.
One look inside, and we think you’ll see,
at Broken Bow Road is where your holiday should be!

“Home is the nicest word there is,” proclaimed pioneer Laura Ingalls Wilder, and we agree with the sentiment. It’s particularly true when it’s a house as lovely as the updated Lake Highlands home at 10836 Ferndale Rd.

From the street, it looks friendly, with a big front yard, large trees, and a freshly painted exterior. But the interior is what really wows, with a vaulted ceiling in the living room anchored by a floor-to-ceiling brick fireplace, a totally updated kitchen, and a crisp, clean look throughout. Built in 1967, this traditional has been extensively renovated to reflect a more contemporary look and feel.

This 4-4 has 2,526 square feet on two stories, with a well-planned layout: the master and one bedroom are downstairs; the open staircase leads to a landing overlooking the den with its vaulted ceiling; the kitchen has new appliances, granite countertops, a breakfast area, and a huge pantry.

This house went under contract days after being listed by Kevin Caskey at Dallas City Center Realtors for $365,000, so let’s take a look at what made it such a hot item. (more…)
