If there’s one thing buyers today all seem to want in a home, it’s an open floorplan. (At least, that’s what an afternoon binge-watching a marathon of HGTV’s House Hunters will lead you to believe.) The house at 639 Lockwood Dr. in Richardson fits this bill — for the reasonable price tag of $354,000.

Built in 1955 but benefiting from a recent renovation that also saw the installation of an energy-saving gas water heater and thermo windows, the 2,228-square-foot, three-bedroom, two-bath home has no walls separating the kitchen from the living and dining areas. And why wouldn’t you want to see everything all at once? With contemporary touches, neutral colors, wood flooring, and designer input throughout, every corner is ready for its close-up.

The gourmet kitchen features lots of counter space, ample storage, a five-burner gas stove, and a stainless steel farm sink. Granite counters, dark brown cabinets, and a glass subway tile backsplash complete the modern feel.

Parents will appreciate the ability to keep an eye on little ones while they prepare dinner. And every party host knows all too well the feeling of being shut off from the action while readying hors d’oeuvre in the kitchen. Not a problem here. In fact, the large island makes a natural gathering space for guests to visit while you pour a round of cocktails.

The gas fireplace makes a statement with a tiled floor-to-ceiling façade. And about those ceilings — the vaulted pitch makes the common area feel even more spacious and airy. Recessed lighting and windows throughout provide loads of light.

Converted from the garage, the master suite is private and spacious. The en-suite master bathroom is spa-like, with granite counters, his-and-hers sinks, a frameless walk-in shower, and a standalone soaking tub.

Two additional bedrooms are generously sized and share a well-appointed second bathroom, with a separate stand-up shower and soaking tub of its own. A double vanity means kids won’t have to fight over the sink while getting ready for school at nearby RISD schools. (Did we forget to mention that the house is within walking distance of Richardson Heights Elementary?)

A sweet backyard is the perfect finishing touch, with a paved patio and lots of grass where children and pets can play. Listed by Joy Urban with Virginia Cook Realtors, the home is a great option for growing families who still want a stylish, contemporary space to call home.
