PRESTONWOOD TRADITIONAL WITH TESLA SOLAR PANELS
Open House: Friday, Nov. 23, noon – 2 p.m.
If you’re looking for a family home that can entertain plenty of well, family, during the holidays, then our first Far North Dallas house on 6323 Hickory Hill Dr. is pretty much the perfect set up.
From a floor plan that splits the four bedrooms, to the three bathrooms that mean fewer wait times when everyone is home for Thanksgiving, this home has 2,516 square feet of space.
And the updates are impeccable — hardwood floors, updated tile, granite countertops, neutral paint tones throughout, a gas start fireplace, and a wet bar that can service the living room and the family room at the same time.
And can we talk about that kitchen? Double ovens so the pie can cook at the same time as the turkey, stainless steel appliances, and open to the living areas.
“The home is built around the wonderful backyard patio and large grassy area with views from the abundance of windows throughout this home,” said Realtor Teri Schwan with Ebby Halliday-Preston Keller.
And the home is also energy-efficient — Tesla solar panels can stay, or be removed, at the buyer’s choice.
The home is listed for $474,900.
THOROUGHLY RENOVATED TRADITIONAL TURNS MODERN
Open house: Sunday, Nov. 25, 1-3 p.m.
Are you a helicopter host, following your friends and family around with spot cleaner in fear they drop that cranberry sauce, wine, or cherry pie on your floors, forever staining them?
This four-bedroom, three-bath home at 16614 Davenport Road reduces flare-ups of helicopter hosting, because wood-like tile runs throughout the home — easy cleaning is in your future.
The kitchen is also not only gorgeous but perfectly practical for cooking for a herd of family and friends for Thanksgiving. Stainless steel appliances, gas range with double ovens, quartz counters with waterfall edge, a nice big pantry, soft-close drawers, a farm sink, and more.
And the living room is built for entertaining, with a wet bar with built-in cooler, gas fireplace, and double French glass doors that lead to a covered patio, and beyond to a yard surrounded by a new wooden fence.
The master suite is a personal retreat — especially when you factor in the en-suite with freestanding soaker tub, oversized shower with dual shower heads, and a giant walk-in closet.
The 2,705 square foot home is listed for $565,000 by Kylah Boyd with Texas Urban Living Realty.
NEW BUILD TRADITIONAL BUILT FOR ENTERTAINING, INSIDE AND OUT
Open Houses: Saturday, Nov. 24, 1-3 p.m.; Sunday, Nov. 25, 1-3 p.m.
This new gorgeous two-story, five-bedroom, four full bath home at 6930 Robin Willow Dr. was finished just a month ago — and is full of bells and whistles, like wood floors, custom cabinetry, and designer touches throughout the home.
All 4,200 square feet was built to host friends and family — and you can tell. A large study provides beautiful workspace, and the family room boasts a stunning fireplace and tile accent wall. The kitchen has stunning quartz countertops, a butler’s pantry, and high-end appliances.
On the first floor, a master bedroom and guest suite provide plenty of space for relaxing. Upstairs, three more bedrooms, two full baths, and a media room give even more entertaining and guest space.
And we haven’t even talked about the outdoor entertaining area with built-in grill.
But it isn’t just aesthetics and space that make this home rather spectacular — it’s practicalities, too, such as a smart thermostat, security system, and sprinkler system are all controllable by a phone app.
The Far North Dallas home is listed for $899,999 by Ashley Thompson with Rogers Healy and Associates.
