This far North Dallas home projects a little bit of a 1960s Hollywood Hills, Palm Springs contemporary vibe that I find intriguing. It’s so… different. Sometimes you forget that Dallas even does different. Then along comes 4712 Holly Tree Drive. Now, I’ll allow that it also holds its fair share of problems (is that laminate I see?), but in the current real estate climate, I see nearly every house as a project – even ones listed in this price range. I live for potential. And this house has it in spades. Its location puts you in Plano schools and at a very decent commute from Dallas. That’s hard to beat. The house is listed by Susan Withrow of Keller Williams Realty at $725,000.
Starting with the drive up and the limestone entry, this house gives great face. I dig the unique look of the glass block, the curved wall, and the cool, geometric iron door. Like I said, it’s different. In a great way. I also find myself asking, “Would I buy a house for a tree?” Because the curb appeal here is really something.
