I am told this is one of the most unusual homes in Plano. 5212 Blackhawk Drive, Plano, marketed by Sandy Donsky. (Not Scott Vann as I noted earlier, however, he is the brilliant agent who brought the home to my attention!) Custom built in 1989, it is a one owner home with significant upgrades — do not let that ordinary exterior fool you! You get 3549 square feet, five giant bedrooms, four and a half baths, formals, patio, three car garage, huge yard. There is no pool but plenty of room for one. I think the interiors are so lovely, and so different from most of the homes of this baby’s vintage. Here are some of the extras:

  • Pecan hardwood floors. The most beautiful floors I’ve ever seen.
  • Gourmet kitchen.
  • Six-burner Viking gas range.
  • Thermador double ovens.
  • Granite counter tops.
  • Master bathroom recently updated.
  • Carerra marble.
  • Garden tub
  • Master Suite down stairs
  • Guest bedroom downstairs could also be an office.
  • Large room upstairs with its own full bath and walk in closet could be used as a second master, game room, or media room.
  • Backyard large enough to have a pool installed and still have green space left over.
  • Cabana half bath on the back patio.
  • Great location on Old Shepherd Place

The asking price is $519,500.  HOA dues $500 a year. Really interesting to compare this with last Friday’s home.
