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…
I almost don’t care about the interiors, but I do: there are open spaces, five bedrooms, five full baths, three or four living areas (Steve is using one of the dining areas as a billiards room) a master suite, study media and that billiards rooms all downstairs, an additional fun room upstairs with the children’s rooms. There is a three car garage, outdoor living area with wood burning fireplace that is essentially another living space, and room for a beautiful pool. The home has practical touches, too, such as a mudroom entry from the garage with lockers, and a spacious laundry room. And I love the stone. The whole house has an easy, casual vibe that totally fits with the life and music of Holy. It is listed for $2,199,000 with the talented Lee Lamont of Coldwell Banker who knows Lakewood like the back of his hand.
While I am not a fan of the wall colors, that is so easily changeable it’s really not necessary to even mention. (But I did, oops!) Also the kitchen rocks — great cabinets that go all the way up, appliances and plenty of granite counter space, including an island interfacing with the family room with storage below. Little sitting area with coffee bar off master. Lots of planning and forethought went into this home, built in 2013. Holy is a Dallas native, who says he returned home to spend more time with his family, right here in this house:
For the past two years, Steve has taken time off to return to his hometown of Dallas and spend time with his two young daughters, Ava and Ella. “It was time for me to go home, be a dad, regroup, and come out when I felt like I was able to put my best foot forward musically,” Holy says. That time has come, as Holy is once again touring relentlessly, dazzling audiences with his highly engaging live performances, and climbing the charts with his top 20 single, “Love Don’t Run” and current hit “Hauled Off And Kissed Me.” If the third time is a charm, Holy is poised to cement his place among the stars once and for all. “I think part of what motivates me, what gives me drive, is that I’ve been so close throughout the years to breaking out and getting on a roll,” Holy says. “More than anything, I feel like I have a lot in the tank and I want to go as long as people want to hear me. And I think there are a lot of people that want to hear what we have coming next.”
We want to see where Holy LIVES next!
