Really, this is one to watch. Let’s make it our bellwether.

I’m not going to argue that it is not a perfect location, the area I would want for my very next dream house: a Highland Park lot that backs to the Katy Trail, walking distance to Knox Henderson restaurants, shopping and fun. That Knox Henderson Starbucks rules. Pottery Barn and Kate Spade oh my! While I think this would be a fabulous place for an empty nester pad, it is in the Highland Park ISD so there you go, great schools and the reason why the lot is nearly $1.5.

Oh and if that isn’t enough to create desire in your heart, you are two houses from Abbott Park. That means tennis courts, a playground and shaded area for kiddos to play. Parents or grandparents’ delight.

At one quarter of an acre plus (.28), build right and you can have a pool — a long, thin lap pool or swim jets. Those smart Booth Brothers builders have all sorts of ideas. The lot is priced for a build-to-suit with these terrific guys.

She’s been on the market since May 13, going on 90 days. Let us watch her. Market said to be cooling, but dirt still flying… or is it? I’m be smitten with this dirt and the location… just trying to wrap my head around how high our terra has actually become. 4822 Abbott. Listed with the best, Ginger Nobles, Susan Baldwin et all at Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty.

  1. Critic says

    Possibly little movement of property along Abbott due to 20 story plus high rise going up on the other side of The Katy trail that will glare over these homes
    Also this lot is 50′ x 250′. If this lot was 75′ by 175′ it would have sold already

      The high-rise is going to be so much better than the 60s housing it’s replacing. Very high end and will only add to the great vibe of this desirable neighborhood. With more luxury housing, Knox Henderson is only getting stronger!
