This sleek, 1962 era contemporary ranch in the coveted JanMar area just hit the market. And we do not think it will last long.
First of all, you couldn’t find a hotter lot and location: JanMar has become an east of Preston Bluffview phenomenon because of the topography, trees, and accessibility to just about anywhere. The area is 7 miles from downtown Dallas, maybe 10 from Plano.
The lot for this pup is .48 of an acre and elevated, which makes the street so very extra desirable. Built in 1962, the best thing is the home has retained the outer flow and feel of a true mid-century while it was completely and utterly remodeled inside. The ceilings soar with vaults to a huge wood beam. The hardwoods are light and everywhere, except for the flagstone foyer floor which is true to the period. Clerestory windows are sprinkled in with full sheets of glass, and the occasional brick wall makes an appearance as a throwback to 1962: it was a very good year! The kitchen is stunning, open and central, all brand new with sleek dark custom cabinets and a thick marble-wrapped slab island that goes from floor to counter. There are open formals,three living areas four bedrooms, four full baths (three on the main floor) and one powder room.
There is a large outdoor patio and the yard is ripe for a pool, though none exists currently.
What I really love: this home has a lower level, which always reminds me of the splint-level home I grew up in up north. Downstairs on the lower level is a media or game room (your choice) with a full bath. This would serve a pool perfectly if you put one in, and be an absolute haven for kids — your’s, others, or grand-kids. We forget how wonderful family room basements are here in Dallas because there are so few. They stay cool in the summer, offer the kids a great place to hang and watch TV, plus they hide the mess so when you have company, you don’t have to scramble for a clean up.
I would LOVE a home with a lower level game room!
Other neat thing about 7701 Yamini Drive: the size — 3631 square feet. This home packs a whole lot of living into 3600 square feet. The master alone is 16 by 17 feet with a gorgeous master bathroom coated in white Carrera marble so fresh, so sleek, your body temperature will cool ten degrees just being there. The double shower has two spa spray heads and two storage cubbies, plus separate bath and dual vanities. Marketed by Steven Rosenthal and Paige Fielder at Allie Beth Allman and Associates, the asking is $1,050,000 and it just hit the MLS this week, June 2. Which means you had better not waste any time getting yourself over to Inwood Bank and their mortgage department. In fact, I’d go stat: in this hot market, you want to be pre-qualified before to even small a house. And the good folks at Inwood can get you pre-qualified in a jiffy. Which is vital because this house is cruising for a closing…
