Friday Four Hundred: for the Contemporary Cult Who Wants Water — Stone, Stucco, Steam, a Spectacular North Dallas Palace!

Published June 15, 2012 by Candy Evans

Another beautiful home that just makes me DROOL hit MLS at 10 a.m. this morning, and I cannot wait ’til Friday to show it to you. I’m like a kid who gets a toy and has to unwrap it in the car: I can’t wait ’till I get home with this one. 7014 Duffield is a 3725 square foot beauty with TWO wet bars set on about a half acre creek lot with its own island and great fishing right in the backyard. No, it is not in outer Timbuktu: try North Dallas near Campbell and Frankfurt. Built in 1978, the home was recently remodeled by an architectural designer, sparing no expense (as the owner’s husband laments) with soaring ceilings, beautiful natural maple wood flooring, and walls of windows for natural light.  I have to say, that remodel was worth every single penny.
The home is stunning and when have you seen a kitchen in North Dallas with a custom built-in breakfast nook with benches like this? In fact, there are so many built-ins in this home, you will save thousands on furniture you do not have to buy. The kitchen is pure white with clean-lined cabinets and pure Corian countertops.

 

 

 

The main living area features a gorgeous stone fireplace with firepit glass and a wall of built-ins. The updated master rivals those in million dollar plus homes: huge walk-in closet and a fabulous spa bath retreat with separate shower, tub and something you won’t even find in million dollar plus homes, a redwood sauna.

Like I said, SPA!

Upstairs is a guest retreat or teenager suite with a large living area, tons more of built-ins, and a second wet bar. Also a separate bedroom and updated bath on the 2nd level. Four bedrooms total, three and a half baths, two car garage, pier and beam. You won’t believe the backyard: more like an oasis with huge, mature trees on a private creek with professionally landscaped grounds. If you are looking for move-in ready, go ahead, get your nails done, you will not even need a bottle of Windex, this home is so clean.

If you are looking for Plano schools and a nearby playground, this home is for you. I cannot believe they are only asking $425,000 considering all the upgrades and renovation that’s been done on this puppy. Brand spanking new to the market. Shall we wager how long before she is snapped up?
