Friday Five Hundred: 6000 Square Feet & Magic-Making Master For The I Hate Grass Club

There are those of us who love homes but hate grass. What the heck is so wonderful about it anyhow? It sucks up water we need to preserve, it burns up in August, it gets muddy, soggy, chiggers and collects dog poop. Grass, who needs it?

But I like homes, so this one might really be my dream home. 9011 Prominence is basically a 6,000 square foot patio home built in 1993, hence the great pricing: $499,000. (Today I saved you a dollar, don’t ever say I don’t give you anything.)  But in five years when we won’t be able to water our lawns, you will see more homes like 9011. 

“The story here is families who want good schools and a big house don’t need to move to Plano to find one,” says listing agent Becky Frey. Big? The house is enormous: six bedrooms, four and a half baths. “And you are a hop or short walk from White Rock Lake.”

You get the updated kitchen, formals, a den, and that private, lush master on the first floor. Bye, kiddos, go upstairs and STAY upstairs unless someone is bleeding. Master has access to back patio and splash pool — yes, there is a pool! Upstairs you find a game room with wet bar and a balcony which is great for entertaining. There is a great view of the church steeple next door which is very soothing and church bells! Reminds me of Dartmouth! You also have many rooms for offices, media or playrooms. Great closets, big comfy kitchen, three fireplaces, workbench, mature rose bushes to fill you vase. Just. No. Grass.

  • Leaves me wondering a couple of things — how is the parking around the house on Sundays? I'll bet the church folks line every street in the neighborhood.

    And how long have they been trying to sell it? You show a BF listing; Google street view shows an Ebby sign in the front yard.

  • Matt: I just wove through holiday party parking on three streets! One guy had had one too many and opened his truck door right into the street — almost a disaster! Party parking is such a hassle in some parts of town I have decided to ALWAYS live near a church or empty lot for valet parking. If parking is bad on Sunday mornings, just sleep in!

    • Too true, I live across from a big HP church and love the night parking for parties.

      Sleep in late Sunday morning have breakfast and everyone clears out.
