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!

Forget those rich broads — Diane, Lisa, Rhonda, Tiffany and  Desiree. This home is so dang cute, IT should be the star of its own show. We could call it The Real Houses of Preston Hollow. I know when you think Preston Hollow, you think about all the estates lining Park Lane, about Randall Stephenson’s family fortress over on Walnut Hill Lane, and those 7800 square foot McMansions crammed onto the lots east of Preston. But this is the REAL Preston Hollow, before hip roof injections and silicon wall enhancements. Somehow, in 6835 Woodland , you get four bedrooms in 2306 square feet, three baths, formals and a den and no one dies because they only have one en suite bathrooms and don’t have twenty twenty toilets!

This is your typical Leave-It-To-Beaver 1950s cottage, just one block from Preston Hollow Park. The living room has a fireplace and bookshelves, and is open to the dining room for as many Supper Club guests as you’d like. The kitchen is a knock-out with island breakfast bar to the large vaulted ceilinged den with built-in entertainment center. And oh June Clever might have dropped her apron in this kitchen: granite countertops, ceiling height cabinetry, double ovens. Maybe, just maybe she’d have dialed up Ward at work: “honey, the kids are at school, and I’m all alone in this kitchen…” The family room gazes into the landscaped back yard with patio.

And there’s already conflict: it’s on a corner!

June would also have shed those twin beds with this Master: sitting area, dual walk-in closets and bath with oversized marble shower and marble-topped antique chest vanity. There are three additional bedrooms, and hey, this house was ahead of it’s time! One even has an “en suite bath”! Hardwood floors, full utility room, double-paned thermo windows, newer hot water heater and fence, floored attic spaces, electric gated driveway, oversized two-car garage with wall A/C unit — nice touch, and back patio wired for sound. Priced at $439,000. I’ll take TWO! Open Sunday, from two to four.
