One, you’ve been following the story about State Representative Victoria Neave’s delinquent back taxes for her 7,606-square-foot home. Or two, you live in Lake Highlands and have always wondered what’s the deal with that newish modern house on Abrams near Starbucks that stands alone in style and orientation.

Either way, this Mediterreanean or even European-inspired contemporary home is back on the market after two years, listed for $750,000 just a few days ago by Sonia Vasquez of Coldwell Banker Apex Realtors, who aptly described it as “the biggest deal in Dallas.”
