Friday Five Hundred: Soft Lakewood Contemporary Reduced, for the Good Guys

I have so been meaning to tell you about this Good Guys house, a creek-view oasis! Looks like my timing was perfect, too, because 3914 Frontier was just reduced from $599,999 to $549,000. First of all, I know the owners and they really ought to be written into the contract for an additional price: you cannot rent a more perfectly handsome Nordic family.

Second, every inch of the 2920 square feet has had total loving care and hundreds of upgrades, including a master bath that will knock your exercise socks off:  vaulted ceiling, designer tub, dual marble vanities, huge closets, gorgeous hardware and fixtures. The three bedroom home has three baths, three living areas, two dining and a kitchen that looks like it belongs on the floor of the Viking Culinary Arts Center. Wonder why? The owner just happens to have connections to the one of the best appliance showrooms, and this kitchen runneth-over with the best of the best: Viking refrigerator, granite counters, etc. Now for the star quality: when the TV series The Good Guys (with Tom Hanks son) was shooting in Dallas about two summers ago, the show snapped this house for filming. For six weeks they sent the J. Crew look-alike family to the Ritz, took over the house, revived the gardens, build an extra storage shed in the back, and added six potted palms to the deck. Where did the cute family go? Why, they were put up at The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas, of course!

The open floor plan is ideal not only for entertaining, it seems, the indoors and 750 sq.ft. deck viewing the trees is highly sought after by home scouts for movie sets. The fam was paid handsomely while they enjoyed the Ritz, and the crew left the home as tidy as a monk’s drawer. Not only is the house and lot fabulous, you are close to White Rock Lake, Lakewood Elementary, and the whole dang fabulous community.
