Sometimes I run across a home that has me wondering if the builder was psychic or something. The house will have some cool finish or feature that I didn’t even know I wanted, but after ogling that listing, it becomes something I can’t live without.
This is unreal. Somebody please pinch me. I am not drinking, not one sip of bubbly, that price is $289,900. This home is in North Richland Hills, sports 3,339 square feet, three bedrooms, three baths, and a host of extras you usually find in homes starting at about $500K. Talk about Blue Light Special, the home has also just been reduced by 2% from a high of $295,000. And talk about cute, this is one of those homes I just want to hug! Cuddle, even. The address is even darling: 6204 Sherbert Drive — doesn’t the house look a bit like green sherbert? As if the cuteness and size was not enough, here’s the deal: you get $33,000 in upgrades, commercial cooktop in the kitchen with a down draft exhaust — none of this “blow the smelly stuff right back into the room” charcoal systems, I hate those – a premium lot overlooking a park, reverse osmosis drinking water filtration system, a water softener, added 2nd floor bonus space with a full linen closet in there, covered patio, game room, library/study, pre wired media room, decked attic and blue Ribbon Birdville ISD.
This reminds me of those Maidenform Bra commercials I recall from my childhood: but I really DID dream they reduced the price on Paigebrook. (Yes, I actually dream about listings.) Imagine my delight when I was tootling on Allie Beth Allman’s website today, looking at Troy’s house, daydreaming about Mt. Vernon, and I saw that Paigebrook, the former ranch designed by Charles Dilbeck for Ted Dealey, a publisher of the Dallas Morning News and member of a Dallas publishing family dynasty, is now priced at $4,999,000. It has been reduced from a whopping $7,900,000. Now before you say, oh geeze Louise Candy, eight million buckeroos, go prance in your Maidenform, let me explain this is not just a house, it is a piece of art, a piece of North Texas history that was cultivated, preserved and moved like a delicate ornament. Also, the home is 11,500 square feet plus and comes with 14 plus acres in the heart of Westlake with lakes!
We don’t know why, but last fall the newlywed Jonas brother, Kevin, and his New Jersey-born wife, Danielle, put their Vaquero home on the market over there at 2000 Rock Dove Court. (Don’t tell us: The house was too close to Mom and Dad and the other Jonas brothers over there on Wisteria Way? Or maybe they just wanted to be in LA? We totally understand, Kev.) The 5,045-square-foot Westlake, Texas mansion was listed for $2.2 million. And here’s proof that our market just isn’t all that bad: a woman named Mary Skipton bought K2′s home on December 21, 2010 for a cool $2 million.
