Stately Home On One Of The Largest Lots In Kensington Estates Could Be Yours

Share News:

Denton County’s popular Kensington Estates neighborhood is exactly where people go to raise their kids. So we found a stately brick beauty at 1801 Sussex Way that allows you to do just that. Plus, it’s move-in ready too! Listing agent Kathryn Roan with Keller Williams Urban Dallas spills the tea saying, “I feel the biggest draw to Sussex Way is the floor plan. It is perfect for a big, possibly multi-generational, family. Upstairs, in addition to two bedrooms with a shared Jack-and-Jill bath, you’ll find a living room and bedroom with en-suite full bath, all self-contained behind a door. It makes a wonderful mother-in-law or guest suite.”

And Roan is right. The home leaves nothing to be desired.

It sits on one of the largest lots in Kensington Estates and offers a covered patio that’s perfect for summer entertaining. Just ask the seller, Betzy VanTilborg, who raves about the home and its location.

“I love everything about this home,” she says. “It’s a few lots down from a nice park the children love to play in, it’s in the trifecta of great Denton schools, and it is stunningly beautiful. I love the showstopping fireplace, the huge windows, and the smart home capabilities. The four-car garage has facilitated not only my husband’s full-size truck but also a myriad of home projects and storage. The neighborhood has the most amazing people. There are multiple shopping centers in every direction. And it is convenient to both Dallas and Fort Worth!”

If that doesn’t pique your interest, this will.

The five-bedroom, four-full-bathroom home is warm and inviting with custom touches throughout. Among the 3,515 square feet is a grand family room with soaring ceilings, gorgeous hardwoods, and a wall of windows streaming natural light. The main-floor master is another perk, in addition to a main-floor guest room and home office. Comfortable bedrooms for the kiddos and a bonus living area upstairs sweetens the deal.

“This home has been perfect for our family of four and mother-in-law,” adds VanTilborg.

“It would also be perfect for a family with a teenager and younger kids, or even a younger growing family as the office could be used as a nursery on the same floor,” VanTilborg said. “It’s a great buy for the area because of the huge lot, the gorgeous neighborhood, and the fantastic neighbors. I love that none of the garages face the street which helps you focus on the beauty of each home individually.”

Kids will love that it’s within walking distance to the playground.

Aside from the nearby playground in Kensington Estates, kids will enjoy an enormous backyard at home. Even better, it sits within the highly rated Denton ISD on a lot big enough to add a pool.

“The lot is enormous. Absolutely enough room for a pool,” says Roan. “There is a ton of parking behind the auto gate, and an oversized four-car garage. If you have teenagers and they all have a car? Plenty of room. I love that.”

Smart home features and designer updates add to the appeal.

Roan tells us: “The sellers have taken such care to update the features and colors, without being too trendy. The home is move-in ready, and sellers have a smart home system completely set up. It is ready for a new family. The current owner is devastated to be selling it. Her words! But unfortunately, a new job forces relocation. We would all love to see the new owners enjoy it as much as the sellers have.”

Kathryn Roan with Keller Williams Urban Dallas has listed 1801 Sussex Way for $435,000.
