Frisco Colonial Would be Perfect For a Growing Family — If You Catch it in Time

Share News:

It’s not surprising that this 3,000-plus-square-foot Frisco Colonial for under $400,000 went under contract after just two days on the market. Not only does this red brick colonial at 10306 Mallory Drive have plenty of room — and four HUGE bedrooms — it checks all the boxes with an optional HOA in this sought-after neighborhood, great Frisco schools in walking distance, and easy commuter access in the “sweet spot” of Collin County.

This 3,024-square-foot home is marketed by Century 21 Nathan Grace Fine Homes and Estates Realtor Kaitlin Lovern for $394,000. It is perfectly situated near Sam Rayburn Tollway and Dallas North Tollway along Hillcrest, but residents say the real secret is that it’s east of Preston Road and avoids the heavy congestion you’d find on the west side of the vital north-south thoroughfare.

The Drees-built, two-story home in Hillcrest Estates has four upstairs bedrooms, two full baths, and a downstairs half bath with a big add-on bonus room if you want to stick a mother-in-law up there. Lots of updates include new upstairs carpeting, downstairs laminate flooring, exterior paint, and landscaping.

Downstairs are two living areas, and a bay window makes the front living room bright and airy. The second living room, which has a fireplace, is nicely nestled near the kitchen and breakfast nook, looking out onto the covered patio.

The kitchen features tall cabinets, good counter space, and a sneaky little nook behind the sink, perfect for pies and desserts. With a few updates, the kitchen feels fresh with new hardware, a new electric cooktop, and new “greige” subway tile backsplash. 

Plus, there’s a formal dining area that’s so centrally located near the kitchen and entryway. It’d be great for entertaining. 

Walk upstairs to find four oversized bedrooms, with the master tucked away on one end of the house. Seriously, just look at the size of the four-poster bed here. In most homes, every morning you’d wake up staring at a wall, but this master has plenty of room for a whole bedroom suite to hang your hat or halo. 

The master bath has his-and-hers sinks, adorable new light fixtures, a stand-alone, enclosed shower, and corner tub with two pretty windows. The closet is a roomy walk-in with a custom built-in closet system.

There are three more spacious bedrooms, each with a new LED ceiling fan and new carpet to peruse upstairs before you get to the add-on room we promised your mother-in-law.

Again, look at the size of the beds in this home for scale to see how large these rooms are. They’re perfect for a growing family, or a large multi-generational family.

Now, the only drawback is that there’s only one full bath for these three bedrooms, but kids need to learn to share, right? The bonus room, which is an add-on above the garage, is a huge, versatile space that features windows nearly all around, new carpet, and LED ceiling fan and a walk-out balcony overlooking the covered patio and yard, which is larger than most backyards in nearby new builds.

Bring the boys to the yard, or any of your kids’ neighborhood friends who’ll love hanging out at this Frisco Colonial home as much as you do.
