It's rare to find so many high-end amenities and thoughtful details in a Dallas home for less than $300,000. But the house at 10006 Chimney Hill Ln. in Lake Highlands has them, from the handscraped hardwood floors to the cedar-paneled vaulted ceilings.

Listed by Angela Garcia with Keller Williams Realty for $295,000, the three-bedroom, three-bathroom home has 2,619 square feet. The location might be a deal-breaker for some: outside the LBJ loop and about as far north as you can go before bumping into Richardson.

Really, though, it's about 10 minutes from White Rock Lake and NorthPark Center, minutes away from the Richardson Tech Corridor and only 15 minutes north of downtown Dallas. Sounds convenient to us.

There's a bit of a '70s groove to the eye-catching exterior; the home was built in 1979. A bright entryway sports windows next to and above the door, as well as vaulted ceilings.

Next to the entry is a formal living area, featuring a hidden wet bar with ice maker and large windows looking out onto the courtyard. A two-way gas fireplace connects that formal living area to the oversized den, which the current owners are using as a game room with a pool table.

The vaulted ceilings are paneled with cedar wood, and a block of built-in cabinets provides lots of storage. Windows and glass doors offer a glimpse to the covered patio.

The completely renovated kitchen boasts custom cabinetry — with pullout drawers, trash valet, hidden appliance nook, pantry and cookie sheet slots — and stainless steel appliances, including a wine refrigerator and convection oven.

Wood and an angled ceiling add visual interest to the master suite, where windows offer a view of the private courtyard. In the master bath, there is an unusual center vanity, almost like a kitchen island, with two sinks.

And the shower! It's huge, with a walk-in steam area, multiple shower heads and body sprays, seating, and natural stone accents.

Second and third bedrooms also have been spruced up, with  new lighting and carpeting. A second bathroom has granite counters and a new sink, and the third has double sinks and lots of cabinet space.

A back living room is a great relaxation space, with a surround sound system, built-in cabinetry, decorative wall design, modern paint and updated lighting. Large doors open to a private outdoor area with a hot tub — leave those doors open, and you can watch TV from the water.
