The quaint home at 527 Westwood Dr. in Richardson's Heights Park neighborhood may look like your typical traditional. But a look inside reveals a real treat. 

Current owner Jennifer Hughes said it best when she noted this property combines the coziness of an older home with the freshness of a new build. Notable features include exposed wood in the living room, a fresh paint job, and a window seat for reading a favorite book. 

Measuring in at just 1,507 square feet, this three-bedroom, two-bathroom home has to make good use of every inch. It does this by offering two large living areas, endless windows, and a white​ kitchen featuring glass tile backsplash, gas range, and a large island.

The bedrooms, bursting with natural light, perfectly suit adults, children, or a work-from-home type in search of a quiet office. Check out the laundry room and pantry off the kitchen, as well as the dreamy reading nook revealing views of the handsome tree-lined street. 

If a large backyard is on your checklist, then this house meets the need. An onsite shed is ready to be stocked with all the tools needed to turn your plot into yard of the month.

And let's talk location. The house is located just two blocks from Alamo Drafthouse, Haystack Burgers and Barley, and a coming-soon Starbucks Coffee — hot spots sure to become part of your weekly rituals. 

"Richardson is a great location due to its close proximity to Dallas, desirable schools, established neighborhoods, and wonderful parks," Hughes says. "You get the amenities of a big city with the feel of a small town."

This property is currently listed for $242,500, which — all things considered — seems like quite the steal in today's hot housing market. And at this price, we can almost guarantee no buyer's remorse
