One of Lake Highlands' biggest perks is its proximity to excellent Richardson schools. For this home at 9031 Woodhurst Dr., it's not just about the cool schools — the renovated contemporary is equally cool inside and out.

The wood and opaque glass front door is the first hint as to what's waiting inside the two-story, four-bedroom home. Unnecessary walls are banished, giving a direct sight line through the home. Light floods in from double skylights over the living area and floor-to-ceiling doors that open onto the beautifully landscaped backyard. 

Elegant and simple is a theme throughout the carefully edited home. The fireplace is dramatic in its pure simplicity, and there's the impressive vaulted and beamed ceiling, plus the innovative staircase that's a bonus for a home in this price range. 

Restoration Homes is responsible for everything else you see in this gorgeous home. Listed by Jeffrey Lester and Katye Sloan of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty for $950,000, it’s truly a style steal.
