Hot property: In Lake Highlands, how 1970s style and 2020s luxuries blend brilliantly together

Now, this is 1970s chic — beautifully updated for today. With a fun walkthrough video at briggsfreeman.com/tour, 8529 Bacardi Drive in Dallas’ Lake Highlands awaits. Sleek, sophisticated and renovated, it offers a unique front deck, vaulted ceilings, a focal-point fireplace and a sparkling pool with waterfall. The finishes are fantastic, including the gleaming hardwoods and the kitchen’s quartzite countertops. With four bedrooms and three full baths and zoned in the desirable Wallace Elementary area of the Richardson Independent School District, it is represented by expert agent Lisa Schlachter.

Light-filled and well-updated, the home has a contemporary flair and unmistakable curb appeal, thanks to its low-slung facade and unique front deck. Among its many perks is the magazine-worthy kitchen, with stainless-steel appliances, Macaubas quartzite counters and a gray glass Ann Sacks tile backsplash. The kitchen flows with the family room, which boasts vaulted ceilings and that wonderful fireplace — painted brick, with an arched opening that echoes the triple arches of the home's facade. The master suite is luxurious, opening onto the resort-like backyard and boasting a private bath with a glass-wall shower and two walk-in closets. (All the baths in the home are tastefully updated — a real bonus.) This is truly stylish living: a blend of elan and ease.
8529 Bacardi Drive in Dallas is represented by Lisa Schlachter for $495,000.
