Steve Holy’s breakout hit, “Good Morning Beautiful,” stood atop the country charts for five straight weeks in 2002, sparking a  fire that has continued to smolder throughout his decade-long career.

It also sparked the inspiration for  some major real estate. Check out this precious New Orleans style colonial at 5726 Vickery in lower Greenville. Built in 2003, it has three bedrooms, three full and two half bathrooms, and was Holy’s first grand house after he hit the country charts.

Steve Holy

The Dallas born country star had held tight from his first big break in 1993, when he beat out 500 hopefuls in the Dallas-Fort Worth area Johnnie High Country Review, the same contest that launched the career of LeAnn Rimes. After his break in Dallasdeal he signed with Curb Records. Three years later in 2000, his debut album, Blue Moon, was released.

Three years later, this house was produced. Perfect for a bachelor or a family of four, the home is uber walkable to lower Greenville Avenue and Robert E. Lee Elementary School and the pre-kindergarten program, .02 miles away. Walk your child to school as often as you’d like!

An “O” House is a home so fabulous you have to drop whatever you are doing (yeah, even that) or holding, including your nail file, to look!

Why have I not jumped all over this listing? Look at this stone and brick classic with every perfect ingredient. It has so much going for it, it WIPES out the competition.

First of all, this is the home of country singer Steve Holy. So great karma and music juju come with the house naturally, not included in the sales price. Secondly, you could not have sung for a better location. We are talking about Nonesuch Place, a private gated community in the heart of Lakewood with only three other homes in the immediate area. This home was all part of the original Stanley Marcus estate.

So guess what other home is your neighbor? The famous Stanley Marcus estate, which, you may recall, flirted with the market last year for $4,490,000. You get the best of any world here with location, gated area exclusivity, proximity, trees and topography, all on almost a one-third acre. Remember, Love Don’t Run…
