spec house

I’ve got a total scoop for you today, a gorgeous transitional spec house in Midway Hills that just listed. This property is swoon-worthy, with rich, open spaces, high-end amenities, and beautiful conveniences. This is a Preston Hollow-esque home, but with a lot smaller price tag.

Located at 4046 Northview Ln., it’s the work of CandysDirt.com Approved Builder Michael Turner, owner of Classic Urban Homes. Turner builds in great Dallas neighborhoods, and he currently has eight luxury homes in various stages of construction. His creations are in demand, to say the least, and it’s easy to see why.

This home has five bedrooms, six bathrooms, three living areas, a three-car garage, and 5,638 square feet on two stories. It sits on just over a third of an acre near Northaven and Midway roads. It has a smooth, clean, uncluttered design with big windows, rich hardwoods, and high-end extras that make for exceptional living.

“I like the neighborhood because you can get the same amenities as the Preston Hollow area, but this house is about $500,000 less expensive that what you would pay there [because of the lot prices],” Turner said. “It’s still a Preston Hollow-style house and finish-out with all the bells and whistles.”

french transitional

Oh boy! I’ve got a very first look for you at a French Transitional spec home in the heart of Preston Hollow.

Located at 6019 Prestonshire Rd., this beauty is designed by Richard Drummond Davis and built by Colby Craig, a talented young builder creating dynamic homes in the area. Colby is a third-generation builder with Created by CASON. The attention to detail throughout this property is just amazing.

In fact, I could just move right in!

The home is 7,596 square feet, but it doesn’t feel huge — it feels just right for family, entertaining and making truly beautiful memories. The exterior is pure Austin stone with large windows on a hefty 100-by-188 lot near Walnut Hill Lane and Preston Road. There are five spacious bedrooms, six full bathrooms, two half bathrooms, a media room with kitchen, elevator, three-car garage, and a huge covered patio with fireplace and kitchen, perfect for outdoor living. Really, what else can you possibly need? There are flex spaces and formals and more storage than an airport hanger.

It just was completed in June and is listed by Kay Weeks and Danielle Brasher with Ebby Halliday Realtors for $2.495 million.

“It’s a gorgeous home,” said Weeks. “I’ve represented Colby for about three years now and he is appealing to today’s buyer, using the finest materials and creating open floor plans, nice outdoor living areas, huge closets, wonderful millwork and perfect spaces for entertaining. You really have to see this French Transitional home to believe it — it’s just marvelous.”

I got an advance tour with Colby and Danielle I can’t wait to share with you! Come look at 6019 Prestonshire, and I will point out all the thoughtful details that make this home so very unique like … one for red, one for white, and one for champagne … ha ha come see:

Bella Custom Homes

Bella Custom Homes has seven amazing and rare lots in Frisco for built-to-suits. This is a custom home available in Frisco.

Frisco real estate is some of the hottest in the nation, with the big influx of new residents who are looking to live close to their work along the $5-billion mile and nearby.

But this huge influx of new residents to the Frisco area means it’s harder to find available lots for true custom homes.

“There’s a shortage of lots—it’s very difficult to get your hands on lots because there’s such a high demand and most of the production builders have locked up future sites,” said Tony Visconti, President of Bella Custom Homes. “There are all these jobs coming to this area, like with Toyota and Liberty Mutual, and these people are looking to build, but there are very few custom neighborhoods.”

Bella Custom Homes, in business since 1993, currently has seven available Frisco lots in two amazing subdivisions, the Hills of Kingwood and Starwood. Both are gated communities with guards at the entrance, and luxe, family-friendly amenities.

“These seven lots offer buyers a chance to own coveted land in Frisco and these are two of the best communities in the city—most of these lots have incredible topography and gorgeous views and this is a rare opportunity,” Visconti said. “We also work very well with Realtors and unlike many custom builders, we pay their commission at the time we pour the foundation. They don’t have to wait 18 or 24 months.”
