Cathy Browne has done it again. This high-performing Ebby Halliday agent has another phenomenal Allen listing, this time in West Allen’s Shaddock Park. Built by Drees in 2013 with tons of high-end upgrades, this home sports several energy-saving and environmentally conscious features in its design. “That is one of the reasons the sellers decided to build with them,” Browne said.

This home just hit the market today, and we are certain it’s going to go fast! See why after the jump!








Shaddock Park is a great place to live in Allen, Browne says. It’s close to shopping and entertainment, as well as other great neighborhoods and highways 75 and 121. This home at 978 Rockport Lane is one of those houses that is for folks who want a custom home with all the fixins, but don’t want to deal with picking every dang thing out yourself, or making a million site trips. It has four bedrooms, four and a half baths, more than 4,100 square feet, more than a quarter of an acre lot, and so much more! It’s listed at $595,000, and HOA dues are $475 a year.

“This property is loaded with upgrades and features including plantation shutters, rich scraped hardwood floors, upgraded front door, bronze light fixtures, neutral color palette, tall ceilings and open floor plan!” Browne adds. You get an amazing study, a family room that opens to the kitchen with a two-story stone fireplace, tons of windows, and thick granite counters with an eat-in breakfast bar.





This home has a very traditional feel with a modern, open floor plan. It would suit a broad array of decor styles, even working well with some rustic furniture and accessories. There’s plenty of space, tons of light, and great architectural details! The kitchen has plenty of cabinet space, with hidden spice racks and a walk-in pantry. You’ll also love the commercial-grade appliances, too.

There are two suites downstairs, a master and a guest suite — something buyers have been insisting on for a while now. The master suite has a large sitting area and a really luxurious custom bath with an oversized shower, high-end cabinetry, and gorgeous hardware.





Other bonuses include an upstairs gameroom with a wet bar, a media room, energy-saving features such as recirculating hot water, and a backyard with a covered patio, fireplace, and plenty of room for a pool if you desire. You get all of this inside the award-winning Allen ISD. What do you think?
