Denton County’s popular Kensington Estates neighborhood is exactly where people go to raise their kids. So we found a stately brick beauty at 1801 Sussex Way that allows you to do just that. Plus, it’s move-in ready too! Listing agent Kathryn Roan with Keller Williams Urban Dallas spills the tea saying, “I feel the biggest draw to Sussex Way is the floor plan. It is perfect for a big, possibly multi-generational, family. Upstairs, in addition to two bedrooms with a shared Jack-and-Jill bath, you’ll find a living room and bedroom with en-suite full bath, all self-contained behind a door. It makes a wonderful mother-in-law or guest suite.”

And Roan is right. The home leaves nothing to be desired.

Few homes excite us more than a new build that knocks it out of the park. This one by CandysDirt.com Approved Builder Patten Custom Homes does just that. Not only is it outfitted with a bevy of custom touches, but according to the listing, it “goes above and beyond your average new build, starting with the floorplan.” And we couldn’t agree more.

Situated on a generous corner lot in sought-after Lakewood, the four-bedroom, three-full-and-one-half-bathroom home combines Modern Farmhouse styling with the sophistication of a trained eye. Something that is quite obvious the minute you step inside. 

We think it’s beyond what you typically see in a new build for sale,” says Natalie Patten, designer-builder and integral part of the Patten Custom Homes magic. “It’s very much a house of little details and a lot of thought, starting with the floorplan.”
