So, I had a plumbing disaster at my White Rock Lake-area postwar traditional, so I’m reporting from our Forney bureau today as a means of escape from a horde of noisy dryer fans and dehumidifiers.
While the three of us (me, my husband, and my 20-month-old son) are far from cramped at the in-laws’ house, I kind of wish we were holed up in the guesthouse at 6807 Meadow Road. The main house is a sizable at 6,690 square feet, and considering that it was built in 1999, there’s not much you’ll need to do inside.
The guest quarters, which has three bedrooms, is just over 1,300 square feet. That would be the perfect place for visiting relatives or friends, or people who had a major plumbing leak over the weekend and are waiting for insurance to make up their minds on how much our budget is for temporary housing. I’m just saying, people.
The first floor, including the living area and entry way, feature soaring ceilings and tons of light, thanks to banks of windows. The staircase is carpeted, which you don’t seen very often anymore, but we should, because staircases often show much more wear than we realize. Imagine coming down stairs twice a day in heels and then imagine what the steps look like after about 2 years. They’ll have more divots than a golf course on Saturday!
With a gorgeous kitchen that has two islands and beautiful built ins, a home theatre, six bedrooms, seven full bathrooms and three half baths, three fireplaces and a built-in fish tank, this Hillcrest Park mansion is on the market for just $1.599 million. It’s a great bargain!
I think that my favorite thing about this home, besides of course the guest house, is the master bath. I love the soaking tub and the full-size shower, which has more control knobs than an aircraft! The leaded-glass window is a wonderful touch in the master suite, giving light but not letting your neighbor get a look at your nether-regions.
The HOA dues are $300 a month, and you’ll find that this listing is in a fantastic location, too. Just ask Preston Hollow expert Lydia Player, one of the great Ebby Halliday agents representing this property. You’re just a stone’s-throw from Hillcrest, which will give you access to all the great shopping along Northwest Highway and in Preston Center.
