Those who haven't bitten the bullet and headed to the 'burbs because "every house looks exactly the same" might give up that excuse even before they step inside the regal ranch at 2817 Chatsworth Ln.
Listed at $449,900, the 2,740-square-foot home in Plano's Briarmeade neighborhood faces a creek and miles of Chisholm Trail hike-and-bike paths. A metal roof and lush landscaping add to the curb appeal.
Inside the glass and iron front door, anyone with an eye for design will swoon at the coffered ceiling in the family room and the dark, dramatic paint in the formal dining room. A solarium and wet bar reinforce the fact that this house was built for entertaining.
The kitchen — recently remodeled with Carrara marble countertops, pendant lighting, and Bertazzoni appliances — is a vision in white. A darling extension of the kitchen space, the breakfast nook features a bar with added storage shelving. Because, really, you can't ever have too much storage.
This four-bedroom home features a spacious master with an en suite bathroom, two bedrooms that share a Jack-and-Jill bathroom, and an additional room that's currently used as a media center.
A sparkling pool, the star of the backyard, has a removable fence for extra safety; a ceiling fan on the covered patio helps cool everyone down on hot summer days.
And, while the home itself is stunning, its position across the street from the Chisholm Trail sets it apart from others in its price bracket, so listing agent Cerissa Lair says interested buyers should act quickly.
"Not only is the future owner of this home getting to enjoy the fruits of a fabulous renovation, but they can walk out their door and be on the Chisholm Trail," Lair says. "It's really unique to be across the street from 9.3 miles of concrete trails, and I know from experience that buyers love that added bonus."
