A home that didn’t pull out of the Paris Accord

I like to walk with a purpose, an endpoint. Sunday was just such a day when, as a real estate writer, a cool open house is a great endpoint.  One option asked me to “imagine living in an Italian villa” (yeah, no). Then I came across the walk-worthy 9317 Midway, which looks very modern (good), but also has a fascinating story to tell, which was hinted at when I saw the rooftop solar collectors and Tesla gear in the photos. Not to be outdone by their environmental fortitude, I slipped on my shoes and headed to the open house (so there!).

The home contains five bedrooms and four full bathrooms over 4,257 square feet. It rests on nearly two-thirds of an acre (112’ x 237’ lot). It’s listed with Robert Plessinger of Keller-Williams Park Cities for $1.75 million.

The home is on Midway just north of Northwest Highway. For those in less urban environments who like a little walkability, the home of across the street from the strip center housing Fernando’s and La Madeleine restaurants and other retail outlets including the coming soon Central Market. Oh, and did I mention that this stretch of Midway has sidewalks!

Like two ships passing, on October 1, Modtown Realty Group and Keller Williams quietly parted ways. The separation will come as neither sudden nor surprising to anyone keeping close tabs on Modtown. The group, who had been part of Keller Williams Park Cities since 2012, recently moved its offices back to Deep Ellum. And it’s there that Drew Colon and Jacob Moss say the group feel most at home and most connected to their brand, which largely appeals to Millennials and urbanites.

“We’re coming out to this market of Deep Ellum.” Colon said. “We’ve done a good job at creating an inviting environment here. The moment you walk in the door you get that sense. We’re back and we’re excited!”
