We have been drooling over the Lawn at Glen Abbey now for about a year, long enough for the good folks at Hawkins-Welwood to finish up another astonishingly gorgeous home for us to consider as the perfect “downsizer” specimen. Bonus brownie points: it’s 4099 square feet of luxury living. The master and study are on the first floor, giving you a second bedroom option, with two bedrooms and a game room up.
This home is located towards the rear of the leafy community, and backs up to a large green-way. That’s right, you will have the perception of a golf-course-size lawn without one bit of the upkeep. (The actual lot for this home is 45 by 127.)
What do most downsizing baby Boomers want in a home? John Hawkins would know: a focus on first floor living and all the amenities they are used to in the larger estates they are shedding. Just not the yard, exterior maintenance, and please, not too much house.
64 Fawn Wood Drive offers a three-car garage and total first floor livability. There are two patios, two enormous his and her walk in master closets, the perfect gourmet kitchen with top-of-the-line Sub Zero and Wolf appliances, custom cabinets, thick quartzite counters, exciting backsplashes, hardwood floors everywhere, handy laundry room, study, an abundance of natural light, and that solid Hawkins Welwood signature style in every corner.
The Lawn offers low maintenance living for those who want to downsize on lot size, but not style or luxury. It’s the place for green living without the maintenance. You get a home with total luxury amenities designed for lock and leave living. Many families here have second or third homes, while some live at The Lawn 365 days a year. It makes for an interesting, friendly, gated neighborhood where everyone watches out for the other. Homes are incredibly energy efficient and built with the latest technology.
And of course, The Lawn at Glen Abbey has the best location in North Dallas: close proximity to the Dallas North Tollway at Keller Springs Road, with Preston Road to the east. The Lawn is about 15 minutes from Legacy in Plano, the Star in Frisco, or Preston Center in Dallas.
64 Fawn Wood is priced at $1,450,000.
