Driving up to this four-bedroom Lake Highlands honey, you might feel you've arrived in the late 1970s, with the house's contemporary-style exterior situated among the trees and topography. But once you park in the circular drive and head inside, suddenly you're back in 2010.


The 4,400-square-foot home at 9312 Moss Trail—with four bedrooms, four baths, three living areas, and a three-car garage—has been stunningly redone from top to bottom. There are hand-scraped hardwoods, soaring ceilings, and walls of glass overlooking the sparkling pool. Many homes of this vintage have refreshed kitchens and baths. But here they've been more than made over—they've been gutted and made new again. The kitchen comes with custom cabinets, stainless appliances, and granite galore, as well as a moveable island.


The first-floor master bedroom features the kind of bathroom found in million-dollar homes, with tumbled tile, marble, all-new designer fixtures, and a soaking tub. And even the Jack-and-Jill for the two bedrooms downstairs has been updated.


The upstairs game room overlooks the pool with a balcony and bath. There's also a fourth bedroom that could be a home office. Basically, you are getting a new house from top to bottom at a price indicative of a motivated seller, at $625,000. The home staging has been done beautifully by the talented Karen Eubanks.


Basically this Moss Haven-area place is as turn-key as you can get. All you’ve got to do is move in, unpack those boxes, and relax.
