To be fair, I am not familiar with Lakeside, so I cannot speak about the immaturity of the trees and the sterility. We are househunting in W Plano right now and the last time I was there was 12 years ago -- when the trees were seedlings and the entire area looked immature. I therefore say if you plan to live there for a few years the sterility will wear off because trees will grow.

As to the modernity/traditional feel of the house, I respectfully disagree. I think it is a perfect balance of both, and irresistibly appealing for a family of four (my family). I have not seen many such houses in Plano...they seem to be more plentiful in downtown Dallas.

Lots of luck and I hope you will post your findings after visiting the house!

This house will pick its buyer itself, probably someone who is as cool as this place. Your standard buyer who is buying for resale can't offer personality to match the house. Luckily, the chosen buyer will get a good deal as well because original listing price was $889 but house has done the negotiations already for the rightful owner. However it seems that house was staged by a stager who tried to use some cheap furniture in some rooms, he/she did a disservice to the seller.

Maybe I'm that cool owner?

Lakeside is good, I am familiar with this area and find the listing over priced by my eye. Its close to $200/sf. Although it is smaller than most Lakeside homes that can be good to be one of the smaller homes on the block. It is significantly updated which should make it more than most homes nearby not so renovated.

You need to come take a look at this area. If I recall you have been more focused on around South Lake. Once you land on an area, if you decide not to build and go resale, Id get a realtor very familiar with the area to help if you havent already. I imagine you know this but have learned never assume.

I have noticed in 24 years of living here that contemporary has a harder time selling...unless the buyer (like yourself) comes along who likes that!
Agreed. I like it but it takes a certain kind of buyer.

Nice! It is a cool place to call home, with award, story and all. Seems like a valedictorian child that parent can brag about at every social occasion. They did a sexy renovation and $759 is pretty reasonable.

By the way Lakeside is a nice neighborhood and of course I don't even have to mention stellar schools and convenience galore from highways to dining to shopping to activities.

It is an architectural gem - not my style but I recognize the excellence of design. It's light and airy, clean lines, but too sterile for my taste. But I am not living there so who cares what I think?

I agree... it does appear to be a little sterile...

Somehow it reminds me of something cool in California.

You can thank their interior decorator for this sterile look. I like the house itself and with total renovation, its a steal. This zip code is expensive. I am looking at homes here and $759k doesn't buy much. I would certainly buy it if was within my budget. It's a unique home,almost new, great area and schools.
