If you picture a 6,000-square-foot home on a sprawling ranch with a barn and chicken coop to boot, you probably aren’t thinking Plano. However, the recently updated home at 3745 Morton Vale Road is exactly that — an immense, rustic retreat in the middle of one of North Texas’s fastest growing areas.

The gated 12-acre farm is just off Parker Road, a mere six minutes from Central Expressway. It is neighbored by Oak Point Park & Nature Preserve, home of the annual Plano Balloon Festival. The popular park features over 800 acres of open space, hiking and riding trails, and a small amphitheater. There’s even a zip-line park hidden under the treetop canopy.

This is just such an amazing opportunity to live in an amazing home! Were you looking for the perfect rental for your relocation to Dallas? Have a couple of kids and want to be in a great school district? Love architecture and midcentury modern design? There could be no more perfect home for you!

This Howard Meyer-designed three-bedroom, three-bath modern dream home was recently on the market for $1.2 million and you can rent it today for $6,495 a month! It’s listed with the gorgeous Dave Perry-Miller agent Charme Gallini.

Today, well … it’s all very, very white.
