For empty nesters looking for the right-sized, updated house with a one-story floorplan, we’ve found the perfect property in Prestonwood East.
Sitting on a corner lot at 7207 Authon Dr. under arching shade trees, this home offers thoughtful spaces with graceful formals, a split floorplan, updated kitchen, and secluded swimming pool off the master. It sits on one of the largest lots in the neighborhood, over a quarter acre, with mature landscaping in the front and back yards.
“One of the best features of this home is its natural light, which keep the interior bright and shows off all the updates beautifully,” said listing agent John Jones with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty. “It is right-sized with a well-appointed floorplan, a perfect choice for the empty-nester looking for a one-story home for their retirement years and buyers that value the privacy and space offered by the split-floorplan with a second master.”
This home has four bedrooms, three full bathrooms, one half bath, three living areas, and 2,579 square feet. Let’s take a look!
Prestonwood East offers so much for homeowners — it’s an established North Dallas neighborhood within a short drive to great dining, shopping, and entertainment options in North Dallas. With proximity to the Dallas North Tollway and the President George Bush Turnpike, getting anywhere in North Texas starts easily. It’s just one block away from Salado Park and the Preston Ridge Jogging/Cycling Trail and three blocks from the Campbell Green Park and Recreation Center, too.
“People love the convenience of living a short distance to the tollway and close to the Dallas Galleria and shopping in Plano,” Jones said. “This property is near Campbell and Hillcrest roads, a quiet residential area near recreation areas, so you have the best of all worlds close by.”
The home is also located in the coveted Richardson ISD, zoned for Bowie Elementary, Parkhill Junior High, and JJ Pearce High School. All three schools are highly desired for their outstanding academic ratings.
Recent renovations throughout this house didn’t miss a detail — it feels fresh and inviting with a modern color palette and water-resistant, high-quality laminate wood flooring that look like the real deal. Some behind-the-scenes updates include a newer AC condenser, sprinkler system, water heater, and a lifetime composition roof installed 2017.
The updated, eat-in kitchen impresses with tons of storage in refaced cabinets topped by quartz countertops, and a granite-topped island. Large breakfast area with built-ins for extra
storage and room for television. An additional counter with granite could be used as a breakfast bar.
Appliances include double ovens and the kitchen and breakfast area are open to an oversized living area, allowing for excellent entertaining possibilities. In that room, a cozy brick fireplace anchors the space, which includes a high ceiling with recessed lights and a ceiling fan.
A split floorplan means the master bedroom is separate from the other three with its own ensuite bathroom, updated to be a delight. There you’ll find dual sinks, granite countertops, beautiful cabinets, two walk-in closets, and a contemporary, high-end tile treatment in the walk-in shower. There is a private door leading to the swimming pool in back, a unique feature that would allow for that space to be used by swimmers.
On the other side of the house is a bedroom that could be a second master or mother-in-law room with an ensuite bathroom. All the bedrooms have the great-looking laminate flooring.
Toward the back of the house, there is an enclosed sunroom with air conditioning and heat, making it an unexpected treat for morning coffee. It looks onto the backyard with its landscaping and privacy fence. This part of the yard is separate from the pool and would be a perfect way to keep people in one area, away from the pool.
