Adulting In Downtown McKinney is Easy With This Adorable Home

Share News:

Half acre. Heavily treed. Walking distance to downtown McKinney. Recently made the Tuesday Two Hundred cut after a $5,000 price reduction. Why is there a streetlamp in the middle of the walkway which blends with the driveway? Nobody knows, but you know there’s one way to find out – tour the house and ask your agent. TA DA!

But if you need a little more convincing before you book an appointment, let’s talk about this well-cared-for, thoughtfully updated, three-bedroom, two-bathroom 1960s ranch-style house located at 409 N. Morris Street.

Most notably, let’s talk about that roof. It’s brand new. Rejoice. Hooray. That’s an expensive update that’s already been taken care of.

What about that little showpiece, the garage door? It’s fashionable and functional, meaning it’s really pretty and also insulated, which can help you save energy. Makes sense, right? A cooler garage in the summer should equal a cooler house, and that means the ol’ HVAC can work a teeny weeny bit less. It’s still Texas after all.

Anything else new? Um. How much time do you have? The high-capacity water heater was recently replaced and so were the bathroom vents and the soffit and fascia.

There’s also a lot of non-nerd-out-because-you’re-an-adult-and-have-to-pay-your-own-bills things to love about this house. But before we get there, we’re just going to say this – the kitchen has a built-in lazy Susan. Okay, we’re done.

On to hip, cool features like hand-scraped hardwoods, abundant natural light, and an enormous backyard. It’s a private oasis for when you need to escape your too-perfect McKinney life. There’s a custom stone firepit for the three whole nights it’s cold in North Texas and also for cooking s’mores all the other days or burning old love letters or whatever.

The point is FIREPIT in an idyllic setting with mature oak, pecan and pear trees. GROW YOUR OWN FRUIT and live that way-back-in-the-day life. All you need to add is fresh milk delivered to your front porch weekly and we’re pretty sure Amazon Pantry can take care of that.

But if you ever do need to leave your own private slice of Heaven, hop on your tandem bicycle with the basket filled with fresh flowers and ride down to downtown McKinney and check out all it has to offer – Patina Green, The Smitten Flea, Square Burger, Emporium Pies and way, way, way more.
