This week’s Suburb Sunday takes us to an exurb actually, Addison. While this four-square-mile Dallas County city is often known for its abundant restaurants and entertainment, you can find some great homes here with plenty of amenities. Here are three homes for sale in Addison that satisfy family life, provide a great starter home, or offer low-maintenance living for those constantly on the go.

 

Beautiful Family Home With an Even Better Backyard

Address: 14775 Chancey Street, Addison

  • Four bedrooms, four baths
  • 2,946 square feet
  • $524,900

You’ll love the custom touches in this 1993-built traditional two-story in Addison’s Chatham Court. But one of the best parts of living in Addison and this home particularly is paying a reduced one-time fee to gain access to Addison Athletic Club, which offers indoor and outdoor pools, indoor basketball, racketball, indoor track, weight room, exercise classes, and seasonal events.

The gourmet kitchen is fully equipped with stainless steel Thermador Professional appliances, including a four-burner gas stove, convection oven, warming tray, and built-in microwave, as well as a GE under-counter wine cooler refrigerator. Custom touches include a built-in wine rack and slide out cabinet shelves.

The expansive backyard has a louvered pergola covered patio and a stone fire pit with seating. This home is zoned for Dallas ISD in the attendance zones for Bush Elementary, Walker Middle School, and W.T. White High School.

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!
