I see the salt water pool behind this house and I GET ALL MISTY EYED! 2401 Misty Haven has more than 3500 square feet, four bedrooms, three baths, built in 1981 which was a very good year and the year my daughter was born. But the owners have taken this brick 1980’s contemporary on a third acre to a whole new level by pouring more than $250,000 in upgrades and improvements into her: contemporary landscaping, hardwoods & high quality speakers, new custom cabinetry in kitchen & baths, Viking appliances, Miele built-in coffeemaker, gorgeous rare granites, 16 seer HVAC, new ductwork, low E windows, R38 insulation, LED lighting thru out, commercial grade guttering, flagstone decking, a built-in grill, and a full putting green.
But what you have to see is the back yard and salt-water resort-style swimming pool. I mean, let’s face it, almost everyone in Dallas with a home priced over $500,000 has a swimming pool. This one has been renovated & automated with 2011 equipment, with a gorgeous blue-tiled elevated wall and water feature plus spa. Oh if that isn’t enough, the home is on a greenbelt in Plano with fields and a pond nearby. I am ga-ga over the master bath in this home and love how it opens onto the patio and pool area, a feature usually seen in million dollar plus homes. The kitchen is not too shabby at all and kind of feel like this house is a poster child for what every 1980’s era home should and could be. It’s like if there were a beauty contest of 1980’s era homes, this home would be crowned Miss America.
Now here’s the shocker. This house is priced at $599,000. I’m telling you, it’s enough to make Barbara Corcoran fly her NYC coop. You know what? If I worked in New York I’d buy this house and freaking commute — cheaper and totally worth it!
