Ebby Halliday Star Realtor Cathy Browne sent us this listing late last week, and we ooh’ed and ahh’ed over it. Seriously, this home in the highly sought-after Cumberland Crossing neighborhood of Allen with creek frontage is so charming that it was already under contract after just one day on the market.
That won’t keep us from ooh-ing and ahh-ing over this beautiful 3,664-square-foot home in one of the prettiest little cities in North Texas. With a grand staircase at the entry, wrought iron details, hardwood trim, and gorgeous hand-scraped floors, this home would be beautiful just plain empty. But thanks to expert staging advice from Browne, this beautiful estate-worthy abode at 1484 Abby Way shows like a dream, which was on the market for $465,000.
It’s the perfect family home, too, with four bedrooms, three bathrooms, formals, an office, a huge family room, and a media room upstairs. And who doesn’t want their own wine grotto in their home? There is plenty of room to work and to play, that’s for sure.
The kitchen was built to feed crowds of kids or adults, and has a huge island that can accommodate a fabulous spread or even a few kids that need some supervision during homework time (you know what I’m talking about, right!?). With gorgeous hardwood cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and thick granite counters, this kitchen is as solid as a rock. You’ll love the gas cooktop and built-in ovens, too.
The master suite, which is on the first floor (great for families with older kids), is sizable at 19 x 14, and sports a perfect bank of windows to let a little light in when you need it. It’s large enough for oversized furniture, too, and would look fantastic with some longer, more dramatic drapes and a wall-mounted TV instead of a bulky armoire.
The five-piece master bath makes the suite a true retreat, with a soaking tub with room for two, a nice stand-alone shower, and his-and-hers vanities. The tile and cabinetry are a perfect match, and the huge walk-in closet is large enough for both spouses, but we know how that often works out …
Upstairs there’s a media room and on the landing you’ll find plenty of space for your billiard table and poker night games. It’s wonderful for sleepovers and hangouts, and it’ll be fantastic to have your house be the one where all the kids want to play.
The backyard is great for entertaining, too, but lacks a pool. Still, your $600 annual HOA dues will give you access to all the community amenities you crave. And while this beauty has already been snatched up, you can call Cathy Browne about finding your perfect Allen home today.
