One tried-and-true way to make a decision is to weigh “pros” against “cons.” Split a piece of paper down the middle and get to work filling up the columns until one side or the other emerges the victor. It’s a great place to start with house hunting, too.
The pros column would be quite lengthy for Sharon Naukam’s listing at 6805 Amaretto Court. For starters, the four-bedroom, four-bath, and two half-bath Mediterranean-style home is on a cul-de-sac in West Plano’s Normandy Estates neighborhood. Safety, serenity, and a sense of security are baked right into the gated community.
Then there’s the location. Do you work at Ericsson? Toyota? Frito Lay? That commute can’t get much better. And should you need to leave your bubble, you’ll be equidistant to the Dallas North Tollway and the Sam Rayburn Tollway for those meetings downtown or trips to the airport.
Let’s talk surroundings next. Nature is your neighbor on one side of the neighborhood. Evening strolls along a community trail are a must — enjoy views of the lake with fountain and pier, or stop and sit in the cedar gazebo if you like. You’ll want to take it all in, all the time.
The schools are another selling point. The community is divided in half by the border between Collin and Denton counties, but this home is zoned for high-ranking Plano ISD schools.
Shall we go on? Inside has a modern/transitional feel highlighted by the abundant light and spacious floor plan, totaling 5,354 square feet (per tax rolls). The kitchen features all the finest appliances: a Thermador 6-burner range, Wolf double oven and Sub-Zero refrigerator, plus a scullery. A huge living area with wood beams, a media room, and an amazing walk-in bar with wine storage and an ice maker provide great spaces to entertain — when we are all able to entertain again, of course!
The downstairs master suite should get a couple of extra tick marks for the view and for the decadent master bath equipped with elegant Carrera marble, freestanding tub and spacious walk-in shower.
That “cons” column is looking pretty empty right now. Especially after you get a look at the casita equipped with coffee bar, bathroom, and separate entrance. And the resort-style backyard with infinity pool-spa, firepit, outdoor kitchen, and electric screens pretty much seals the deal.
Though it’s become quite evident how this is going to shake out for some lucky buyer, we feel compelled to include the oversized three-car garage with charging station and the Interlogix (lowercase l on the web) home security system. There. Now we’re really done!
The price for this gorgeous estate is $2,179,000. Contact Sharon Naukam at 214-552-5048 if you’d like to schedule a showing.
