Forestcrest is a charming neighborhood populated with everything from 1960s moderns to new construction. There are also plenty of one-story ranches that have undergone renovations, like the beauty at 4438 Ridgeside Dr.

This four-bedroom, three-bathroom home, built in 1968, is for the lover of natural light. Sunshine bursts through the windows of the 3,171-square-foot space, from the common areas to the bedrooms.

Upon entering you are drawn to the formal living room — currently being used as a study — that contrasts nicely with the cozy family room and its floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace. Whatever room you choose to entertain your guests in, they are sure to notice the oak wood floors and the vaulted ceilings that add a touch of elegance.

The kitchen is a cook's dream, with stained concrete countertops, two pantries, stainless steel Viking appliances, and an island with a six-burner gas cooktop. Picture the kids doing homework at the bar before everyone makes their way over to the dining room to enjoy a family meal.

The master suite is large enough for a sitting room, but that isn't what steals the show. The large bathroom is equipped with his-and-hers vessel sinks, a jetted waterfall tub, and a walk-in shower. Actually, all of the bedrooms are quite large, which will make houseguests happy and teenage kids even happier.

Your four-legged friends are in luck, as this home has a backyard that will keep their tails wagging. It also will be a favorite hangout spot for the new owner when the temperature is right.

There is a covered patio with slate flooring and an expansive deck overlooking lush landscaping and tall, healthy trees. A two-car garage has room to store all your yard maintenance tools.

Ebby Halliday listing agent Cindy O'Gorman is confident this home will sell quickly because of its proximity to the Galleria and many of Dallas' top private schools. It also doesn't hurt that this home is within walking distance to beautiful parks while being close to both the Dallas North Tollway and Interstate 635.

List price for this luxurious piece of renovated real estate: $599,000.
