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.


Every time I talk to my husband about gutting our master bathroom, he groans. Unlike you, dear reader, he doesn’t realize that kitchens and bathrooms sell houses.

This same conversation must’ve happened at 9002 Maguires Bridge Drive, where you’ll find an amazing kitchen for this price range and a master bath with tons of storage and a beautiful shower.

Seriously, I am in love with this kitchen. It all appears to be brand-spanking new with gourmet cooktop and stainless everything. And the island is a great size, too. I love the translucent tile on the backsplash. It’s not too personal, but it’s not the boring white subway tile you seem to see everywhere, either.

Just past the beautiful family room is the master bedroom. First, let’s admire the tray ceiling and the moldings. Gorgeous, right? But we know what you really want to see …

… which is the awesome master bathroom. Check out those double vanities! And the mosaic tile! And the cabinets! OH THE CABINETS!

And of course, there’s that shower. *SWOON!*

According to the listing from Virginia Cook Realtors, the owners spent $200K to renovate this 2,717-square-foot Highlands West traditional. Most of the rest of the house still has a lot of the late 1970s traditional vibe, but it’s super clean.

With it being summer and all, I can’t ignore the backyard. Besides the spacious patio and gigantic lawn, there’s a generous pool with diving board. Basically, it’s party central!

So here’s what you get for your $399,000: A four-bedroom, three-bath home with Richardson ISD schools in one of the most family friendly areas of Dallas. Now that’s value!
