Slice of Paradise in Allen Can Be Yours

Share News:

If you’re looking for a place to put down roots in… say, a thriving city that offers a great work/life balance, Allen just may be that place. In 2018 Money magazine ranked the Dallas suburb No. 2 of their ‘Best Places to Live,’ and also No. 2 of their ‘Best Places to Launch a Career’ lists.

If that’s not enough of a carrot, in this time of COVID, city leadership has collaborated to help keep Allen healthy (both physically and economically) by creating a ‘Shop Local’ campaign that encourages the community to support area businesses while many area businesses in turn pledge to abide by minimum state health guidelines.  

Now that we’ve helped you add Allen to your consideration set (props if you were already there), we’d like to help you narrow down a place to live. Here is a really great option from Ebby Halliday Realtors to get you moving in the right direction.

We present 1706 Woodsboro Court, which just so happens to be open on Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m., if you don’t have plans. The five-bedroom, 5½-bath Sanders Custom home was built in 2014 using a lot of attention to detail and design, according to listing agent Nikki Butcher. It covers a generous 4,835 square feet on more than a quarter-acre.

The gourmet kitchen with butler’s pantry features a built-in refrigerator, commercial series cooktop, double ovens and upgraded cabinets. All the emoji heart eyes, right? But it gets better.

Amenities include upgraded fixtures, custom lighting, quartz and granite countertops, vaulted ceilings, wood beams, a wet bar, oversized mud bench area, a huge laundry room and tons of storage.

If you’ve been feeling the itch to travel since COVID, the backyard scratches it in a majorly satisfying way by offering your own personal paradise. The large covered patio with an outdoor kitchen, a beautiful pool and spa with clean lines and multiple water features, a fire pit, artificial turf, and plenty of room to play… they all resolve any need to leave home, both now and possibly forever.

The home at 1706 Woodsboro Court in Allen is priced at $950,000. Contact Nikki Butcher at 469-877-7587 or
