70s Contemporary With a Transitional Facelift in Richardson ISD

13016 Fall Manor Front
When Brittney Warren, a dynamo of a Realtor with Rogers Healy and Associates, told me about this updated 1970s contemporary inside Richardson ISD, I found it hard to believe the price: $319,900.
That’s a rare bird if anything, to find a home in this area at that price. But to see one that is updated, open, and has a lovely pool in the backyard is a fantastic find!


Gorgeous Sparkman Club Traditional Feels Modern Inside, Has Epic Pool Outside

3242 Princess Front

I love how this home blends texture and style so effortlessly. From the front of this home in Sparkman Club Estates, you would think that it’s just your average 1960s traditional ranch. A rambler with perhaps a few updates, but nothing dramatic, nothing special.

Of course, that’s where you’d be absolutely wrong! Surprises are behind every door — even the back door! — of this 1959 traditional. Jump to see them all!

Not only that, but this neighborhood has an amazing location — on the end of a cul-de-sac just a short jog from Hillcrest Road — you get the best of both worlds with this home when it comes to both low-traffic and easy access.

10722 Royal Springs Back

Sometimes I am just so stinking amazed at the cool listings Carrie Hill and Jacy Olson snag. They are working their way up to Brandon Stewart and Scott Carlson territory, I swear. Just goes to show how amazing these agents are!

This midcentury modern in Royal Springs Estates is just epic, too. It has to be the equivalent of a unicorn in Dallas real estate circles, because not only is it an amazing example of midcentury modern architecture, but it has been lovingly remodeled in a way that updates the home without destroying the character that makes these types of houses so highly sought after.



This is such an incredible deal on a professionally remodeled home in Kenilworth Estates!

10564 Cox Front

Here’s another fabulous property that just hit the market and won’t stay there for long! I am so in love with this gorgeous contemporary at 10564 Cox Lane in the Disney Streets neighborhood. Within walking distance of Peter Pan Park, you get a great location, great neighbors, and a competitive price at $432,000.

10564 Cox Living Dining

Marketed by Dallas City Center Realtor Kim Tierney and staged by Karen Eubank of Eubank Staging, this house shows like a dream! Colors, textures, and shapes — all of the decor works together to make this home feel unique without being too personal. Karen, a veteran designer, shared this hot tip she used to stage this home — if you need to balance a room without buying more furniture, break up a sectional into two pieces. Great idea!

10564 Cox Family

This 1970s contemporary is perfect for a family no matter the age thanks to its open floor plan. It has four bedrooms, two full and two half baths, and 2,853 square feet. There’s a two-car garage, two huge living areas including a family room with a bar, and a gorgeous pool.

10564 Cox Kitchen

The kitchen features French Limestone and glass tile, which really sets off the bamboo floors throughout the home. I love the breakfast bar and the barstools, a great place to socialize while cooking! There are stainless appliances, of course, and tons of cabinet space.

10564 Cox Master

In the master bedroom you can see what a fantastic value this home is. Check out the huge windows and the size of this room! Seriously, I would hook up my Apple TV in this place and just watch Netflix for the rest of my life (in between trips out to the pool, of course!).

10564 Cox Master Bath

The master bath is equally enticing, with its long vanity with polished stone and a huge mirror that leads to one of the most epic shower and bath combos I have ever seen in my life. The elongated tile is so very zen, and if there’s plenty of mood lighting, well, let’s just say that I would totally melt in that tub after a stressful day.

10564 Cox Backyard

Now, the backyard is just perfect if you’re looking for a way to keep from hearing “I’m BORED!” every five minutes this summer. There’s a great pool with a diving board, as well as tons of space in the garden to totter around. Seriously, this is just a fantastic property!

I love it when a remodel gives me the shivers.

Just from looking at the amazing photos of 6265 Towhnill Lane, I got a little tingle in my toes. The current owner has poured a lot of love (and money!) into this gem of a post war traditional in the Meadows, which feels like a midcentury modern on the inside.

Built in 1957, this gem of a house has some really great details. The sloped picture window in front is an eye-catcher, as is the full-light front door. No avoiding a visit from the Jehovah’s Witnesses, though. Not sure how I would feel about giving up the comfort of having a peep-hole to hide behind, but oh well!

Everything inside the home — the paint, the floors, the lighting, the cabinetry — feels brand-spanking new and immensely tasteful. The openness achieved by essentially joining the kitchen and living areas makes this house great for families and entertaining.

The huge fireplace is just gorgeous. For a while I was noticing a disturbing trend among homeowners — painting brick fireplaces. While some people can make it look decent, more of then not it looks like a tacky disaster. This one is just pristine, with some really interesting accent lighting above the mantel that sets off the paneling that runs from the walls up to the ceiling. The exposed beams are the icing on the cake!

The master suite is beautiful, sexy, and sleek. Check out the his-and-hers wardrobes with glossy black doors. There’s a sliding glass door that opens the bedroom to the back patio, which is a really great feature!

The master bath is practically new, too, with dark wood vanities and extra storage. There’s a full-size shower and soaking tub, too.

The backyard, well, there’s no pool. That kind of bums me out. I would say that this house is absolutely perfect in every way, but the lack of a pool just kind of makes my shoulders sag. If you’re a smart cookie (and I know you are, because you’re reading this blog!) you’ll have a custom pool expert come in and give you an estimate before closing!

Want to take a look inside? This home, marketed by Ebby’s own Holt Barber, is open Saturday Aug. 26 from 1 to 3 p.m.
