Enjoy An Open Floor Plan In This 1970s Plano Remodel

Share News:

If it is your dream to be a Plano Wildcat, raise a Plano Wildcat, or merely live in the attendance area, here’s your opportunity.

It’s a three-bedroom, two-bathroom, spectacularly updated house located in central Plano and y’all — it’s good.

Built in 1978, it’s a perfect little brick and siding traditional home. Picture perfect on the outside, ultimately updated on the inside.

Homes built in the 1970s naturally have a more open feel than those that came before, so it’s already in line with the open concept of today. The higher, vaulted ceilings of that era certainly don’t hurt either.

This impeccable house comes in at 1,947 square feet, but it feels way bigger. Step inside to a foyer that opens to a formal living and is flooded with natural light from the recently installed Low E vinyl windows.

There’s a walled-off dining room that again, feels open and flowy, featuring the same wood plank ceramic tile that’s in all of the main living areas, along with fresh paint and updated light fixtures.

The kitchen features granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, a DOUBLE OVEN and a breakfast bar with a huge open pass-through facing the living area. Check out that sweet 1970s skylight, too, for a ton of bright light when you’re hard at work reading the tiny print in cookbooks or on the back of frozen dinners.

If you’re looking for all the rooms, this house has it with a utility room, an office with a vaulted reverse dome (Can that be a thing? It’s vaulted, round, and regal so why not?) and a nice-sized sunroom with access to the best backyard.

Why is it the best backyard? There’s a fabulous diving pool with enough left over for a small green space and pretty decent concrete patio. It has everything you need to be the party house. All you need to add are some oversized floats and one of those margarita machines rentals. Probably a boombox, too.

Back inside we’ll do a quick round-up of the generous master with fresh carpet and completely remodeled bathroom featuring dual vanities and a stand-alone shower. One thing to note – none of the bathrooms have mirrors. No big really, it just opens it up for you to put your own decorative touches up but how are you going to check your hair on tour?!?!?
