I wanted to handcuff myself to the furniture

Puttering around the internet on a recent Sunday turned my head to 14888 Lake Forest Drive in Addison listed for $2.559m by Mayo Redpath of Virginia Cook. And so I got my passport and pedaled up to Addison. It’s 7,724 square feet with just three bedrooms and five full and two half bathrooms – this is a seriously sized, empty or never-nested, entertainer’s dream (even though the current owner has two school-age children). Who knew there were things this fantabulous in Addison?

Tomorrow is Addison’s 30th annual fireworks extravaganza, Kaboom Town. It’s a night during which the Dallas North Tollway is involuntarily shut down due to rubberneckers and horrible drivers who lacked the forethought to find a place to stay near the event. It doesn’t help that most people are working today and that the event starts right before rush hour at 4 p.m.

If you’re in love with this tradition but are sick and tired of all of the traffic, perhaps it’s time to consider a condo or townhome close to Addison Circle. We’ve picked out five great options that give you plenty of space and amenities, plus easy access to Addison Circle, the site of this and every year’s Kaboom Town. Jump to see them all!
