thanksgivingLast week, we asked Realtors to pitch us listings that addressed a common Thanksgiving conundrum — space to serve many, and space to cook it in.

Our Tuesday Two Hundred is a great example of a home where that was taken into consideration — a beautiful three-bedroom, two-bath Traditional in Lavon that was built three years ago, with tons of attention to detail, including that kitchen.

And if listing agent Natalie Swanson with Coldwell Banker Apex-Frisco is excited about this home at 291 Orbit Dr., she has a good reason — it’s her brother’s home.

“He built it three years ago and has put so much work and upgrades into the home,” she told us. “It is spotless, and the only elevation of it’s kind in the whole neighborhood.”

“The new builds in the area start at $292,000, and they don’t have wood floors or the huge lot he has!” she added.

And about that kitchen: Swanson said that she knows that much of modern Thanksgiving traditions are unchanged — like going to “grandma’s house with the whole family, football games, and sometimes escaping outdoors to catch a breath of cool, fresh air.”

“The problem is that the chefs were isolated from all the festivities in the kitchen — but not in this house!” she said.
