Fairview

It’s almost an unfair advantage to photograph a home with this gorgeous a sunset overhead.

The Town of Fairview is an actual town, so don’t call this gorgeous 9-square-mile bedroom community a city, please. For this week’s Suburb Sunday, here are three homes for sale in Fairview at top-, middle-, and low-price points, but all are breathtaking in this town that’s marked by large homes on sprawling lots and numerous horse farms.

Fairview is located east of US 75/Central Expressway, just north of Allen. About 10,000 people call Fairview home, where they enjoy excellent Lovejoy ISD schools, and the Village at Fairview shopping area.

An interesting fact: There are no apartments or commercial developments in Fairview, plus the town enforces a “dark skies policy” that all new development complies with to protect their way of life and “keeping it country.”

Every so often I come across a house that touches my heart, makes me go home and think about packing it all up to move out. Most of the time they are multi-million dollar mansions that are waaaay out of our budget, but hey, a girl can dream, right?

But then, I saw 751 Creekwood Drive North in Fairview. I call this home a Trip to the Very Possible!

Maybe you’ll feel like you’re a little far out, but surprisingly, you’re only about two minutes from civilization at the Village at Allen and Village at Fairview. There are more than 3 million square feet of restaurants, boutiques and big box retail, plus entertainment nearby. Take in a hockey game at the Allen Event Center or sharpen your golf game at Allen’s Top Golf, both right down the street.

Best of all, the home is located within the highly acclaimed Lovejoy ISD school district. It ranks right up there with Highland Park and Southlake year after year.

This gorgeous Southern Belle exudes grace and Southern hospitality. It feels like country, but it’s right in the middle of all the action. It’s the complete package.

And then, the price: I walked into this house and it blew me away. I thought, after going through every custom nook and cranny — chronicling all the treasured architectural elements and antiques — I thought (at least) $3 million.

2264839_origThis home is priced at — please do sit down or grab smelling salts, I really needed them — $1,291,000.

Maybe a glass of Chardonnay will do. I am going to take you on a trip to the very possible. Who needs to spend $6 million on a teardown? Here is a stunningly beautiful, period perfect almost new home built in 2007. 6476 square feet of Southern hospitality on a  heavily wooded one acre lot in the River Oaks area of Fairview that meanders down, rambling, overlooking a quiet creek. With a custom-built greenhouse to match the main house right down to the fish scales:$1.291.
