Bent Tree contemporary

I want this house. I know all we writers at CandysDirt.com could say that a few times a week, but this home at 5414 Harbor Town Drive in Bent Tree is so crush-worthy that I’m fighting the urge to stop writing and start moving.  A classic contemporary nestled on a half-acre lot, this 4,921-square-foot home at the Bent Tree Country Club 13th tee box overlooks rolling terrain, a creek, and a waterfall. This Harbor Town home is five bedrooms and five baths for $795,000.

Wood inlay walls and flooring, two-story ceilings, and a floor-to-ceiling fireplace wow you as you walk in and survey the large step-down living room. Hidden away is a giant 160 x 90-inch ceiling to floor movie screen with state of the art theater projector. (more…)

Lakeside on Preston

No matter, we appreciate great, well-located homes any time we see them. This 4,382 square-foot-home in the Lakeside on Preston subdivision of west Plano has six bedrooms, five full bathrooms, and one half-bath, and could be great for multigenerational families. One of its six bedrooms has a second entry and the two-story home has a four-car garage. It’s listed by Mollie Hancock of Ebby Halliday, REALTORS Plano for $769,900.

Rich hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, crown molding, and plantation shutters are just some of the details that make this 1997-built home feel so right. Cozy up to the gas fireplace in one of three living areas in this west Plano home. (more…)

Munger Place

We’ll admit — we’ve been chomping at the bit for Saturday to arrive this week ever since the owner of our Saturday Seven Hundred for the week shared that her Munger Place home was going on the market.

This impeccable Prairie-style home at 5118 Worth St. is listed by Elizabeth Mast with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International. The 5,030 square foot home has five bedrooms, four full baths, and one powder room, and tons of the character and charm you’d expect from a home built in 1912.

The home is right in the heart of the Munger Place Historic District, and has aged gracefully thanks to thoughtful updates and restorations along the way — and it’s abundantly clear even from the curb, as you take in the large covered front porch with plenty of room for impromptu neighborly chats, or quiet nights taking in the historic neighborhood and welcoming community.
