wolf creekConfession: In some kind of fit of serendipity, the home we are featuring in this week’s Thursday Three Hundred is in a neighborhood mentioned by a North Carolina publication we took issue with yesterday in the Wednesday WTF.

In fact, we had to do a double take when we saw the neighborhood this gorgeously remodeled home is in, because it’s nearly impossible to reconcile the claims from Roadsnacks and this beauty.

So welcome to Wolf Creek, where we found this beautiful four-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath home at 1736 Reynoldston Lane, listed by Suzanne Athey with RE/MAX Dallas Suburbs.

And just taking a gander at the neighborhood’s NextDoor page, it’s interesting to see how those who call Wolf Creek home describe the best things about their neighborhood — with words like, “peaceful,” “dog-friendly,” “family-friendly,” and “clean.”

Sitting on a corner lot in a mature neighborhood, this 2,688 square foot Traditional home built in 1969 has had a complete overhaul and even has a pool in the backyard. (more…)

PlanoTucked in the Plano neighborhood of Bent Tree West, our Saturday Six Hundred this week is a magnificently updated two-story home where seriously, no expense was spared to make it a gorgeous, family ready retreat.

Stager Karen Eubank was brought in by listing agent Susan Gentry of Ebby Halliday – Ebby’s Little White House prior to the sale to give advice on prospective updates, and said that the changes the owner. Thanks to her, we have an idea of how much the updates the owner chose transformed this home at 4411 Highlander Dr.

What we see in the before pictures is a well-built home, but a typical 1980s era home with a need for updates and designer touches that today’s buyers want.

It’s the rare seller that not only realizes what is necessary, but also moves ahead with those updates,” Eubank said. “So, for me it was a delight to work with a seller that shared my vision.” (more…)

Where can you find a luxury, Texas Hill Country inspired home in a guarded neighborhood, less than 15 miles from downtown Fort Worth, with tranquil views, and the ability to park a dozen vehicles?  If you guessed Tarrant County then you are correct!

GetMediaThis Monday Morning Millionaire has the three M’s going for it: media room, man cave and magnificent master. In fact, we might even be invoking the O-word as we traipse through this home from front hedge walkway through the traditional and classic front door to the fabulous pool in the back with a soaring sun room overlooking paradise.

Um, you do know the O-word, right, but in fringed boots?

1136 Turner Avenue is located within blocks of Bishop Arts, which you could almost walk to if you wanted a good workout.1136 Turner hedge Or wanted to work off the fabulous meal you were about to consume.
