15737 Seabolt A

Addison is one of my favorite suburbs in DFW, with special events and festivals scheduled 29 weekends of the year, more than 170 restaurants, and 118 acres of parks. There’s always something fun to do there, from happy hours and festivals to Shakespeare in the Park and WaterTower Theatre. It’s also only 14 miles from Downtown Dallas on the Dallas North Tollway, so getting anywhere in between is a cinch.

The city of Addison is small, with only 4.35 square miles of land and 15,830 residents, but they’ve got plenty of inspiring residential real estate. This is particularly true around the Addison Circle area, a modern, urban neighborhood with brick-paved, tree-lined streets, public art, and some stellar townhomes, apartments, and condos.

Today’s Tuesday Two Hundred takes us there to an Addison townhome at 15737 Seabolt Pl. Unit 30 is a two bedroom, 2.5 bath listed by Pamela Lewis at Ebby Halliday for $269,000 (just reduced $5,000). It has 1,922 square feet on three stories on an interior lot with impressive appointments and details; this townhome is newly listed and move-in ready. Jump to read all about it!

WhittierAWe’ve found a great property that just isn’t selling, and we’re not sure why. This prairie-style, two-story house in Colleyville was listed at the end of August, and had a $25,000 price reduction in mid-October to $599,900, but still, no buyer.

Listed by Beverly Spillyards at Ebby Halliday’s Southlake office, this property at 6712 Whittier Lane is a custom-build, one of the first in the Whittier Heights subdivision in 2004. With 4,776 square feet sitting on over a third of an acre of land, this house has a lot of everything. It’s a four bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom house with a three-car garage and all sorts of luxury details. So what’s the deal?

This home is a real head-scratcher. 7225 Turtle Creek. On the corner of Stanford and Turtle Creek, the neighborhood is chock full of stately McMansions and charming Hansel and Gretel cottages.

December 2010

Then, there’s this. The home was sold in December 2010 for $960,000, list $995,000 reduced from $1,069,000. The home was remodeled and is now on the market for… grab the smelling salts… $2,295,000. I am not “you know what-ing” you. MLS says remodeled, exclusive Turtle Creek one of a kind property  prime area of University Park, yeah yeah yeah. Corner Lot. Residence has been remodeled with open floor plan, marble floors, beautiful wood floor dining area, granite, island kitchen, appliances, AC units (I should hope so for $2.295M) , 2 patio’s, and first floor master.

I peaked in the front window, looks like my mother’s white carpet on the floor from Carpet Express and a wall of mirrors. Oh the ceiling was so gilded I thought maybe someone had torn down the Palmer House in Chicago. Methinks this house has been made up more than the salesladies in the cosmetics department at Neimans. Interiors remind me of the house in My Big Fat Greek Wedding, check them out. And what did we do, slap some paint on the exterior red brick, call it a day? Where’s my requisite stone, baby, and I don’t mean those dirty fake columns? 

Know the best thing about this home? Owner financing.
