- 11626 Brookspring Dr. [HAR]
One of the largest lots in Lakeside Place sprouts a 1975 contemporary with courtyard entry — and courtyard views from within the interior’s open floor plan (top). Furnishings in punchy shades of citrus currently pop against the neutral finishes found in most of the rooms. When listed Friday, the updated property’s asking price was $410,000. It last sold in 1998, for $196,500.
This home in Lakeside Place, one block north of Briar Forest between Wilcrest and Kirkwood, was until recently the location of Briar Oaks Home Care, an assisted-living facility. What a nice place to live for a while with a little assistance, no? But not for too long: The facility was foreclosed on, and just went up for sale earlier this week.
The listing counts 6 bedrooms, but that may include the converted dining room. Also on its way to living-space status: a drywalled but unfinished garage.
