Sometimes homes have little, niggling things that bother you. Perhaps it’s a 1950s post-war with a laundry area in the kitchen. Maybe it’s an ugly color combination of backsplash and countertops in a bathroom. Or perhaps it’s a master suite with no bathtub. Rarely do I come by a home that is priced less than a million bucks that I wouldn’t change at all. This listing in Allen‘s Twin Creeks subdivision fits that bill.

This Huntington-built stone-and-brick traditional in the Somerset area of Allen’s Twin Creeks has four bedrooms, four full and one half bath, and more than 4,200 square feet. If you were to buy something of this size and finish-out inside the city of Dallas, I could totally see you spending around $1 million. In Allen? Ebby Halliday Relator Cathy Browne is listing 609 Naples Drive at $595,000.

I know, right? Less than $600K and you get hand-scraped hardwood floors, beautiful rich paint, plantation shutters, a gorgeous kitchen, an upgraded study with a beautiful coffered ceiling and tons of built-in bookcases, plus a whole-home audio system and a fabulous backyard with a pool!

“The elegant dining room offers crown molding and custom designer paint,” Browne said. “Relax in the warm and inviting family room with stone fireplace, wall of windows and access to the pool area, and open access to the gourmet kitchen.”

You get granite counters with an eat-in island, commercial-grade gas cooktop, Sub-Zero refrigerator, double convection ovens, two-tone upgraded cabinetry, and both accent and task lighting. You’ll adore the huge pantry, too. The breakfast nook has a built-in china cabinet and coffee bar plus a super cool checked pattern on the ceiling. There’s also an adjacent keeping room with access to a patio through the atrium windows and French doors.

“Also downstairs is the fabulous master suite, which features a sitting area, and spa-like bath with his/hers vanities, jetted tub, as well as a large walk-in closet with built-ins,” Browne added.

There’s a fabulous bank of windows in the master suite, which is perfect for those who prefer to wake up with the rising sun. It’s not an overly large master bedroom, either, measuring 16 x 13. The master bath is great, with fabulous wood cabinetry, though the mirrors could be upgraded to match.

All other bedrooms, with additional en-suite baths, are upstairs. You’ll also love the game room with wet bar and the media room, which has surround sound and theater lighting. Another bonus is the utility room, which has tons of cabinetry, a sink, plus room for an additional refrigerator. If you’re a sucker for details, you’ll love the swing doors on the two-car garage and the epoxy floor.

And then there’s the backyard, which has great lanscaping, a wonderful little pool, and a patio that will entertain an intimate group with aplomb. What do you think?
