It is too modern and sterile for my taste cause I like comfy home feeling. This house looks like your voice will echo in it but it would be great for a family with alergies I think. If you like it then that's all that matters cause you will be living there happily.

I love, love, love it! Much better than the Colleyville house!!!!!! But I am a fan of understated elegance and absolutely hate overdone, fussy houses with very traditional fixtures. I especially dislike grand entrances with overbearing stairs but this house in Plano is impressive without seeming ostentatious.

DFW or at least majority of suburban CD posters can't think out of the box and are too afraid to buy anything but cookie cutters.
For a minute forget style of the house and just think about amount of renovation done, its like buying a new house for the price of old one in an established neighborhood. You may get a new castle for under $800,000 in far flung areas but not in desired zip codes.

Here are some examples of the 75093 properties available in this price range.

I believe this one is over priced for the market and street it is on even though is totally renovated. Make note this home backs up to Preston. Even with an alley behind it that will limit the market for buyers when reselling. I would not pay $190/sf for this section of Lakeside and backing up to Preston. I like the house itself and think it would hold resale for design and style.

If you compare it to rest of the listings then price seems justified. I like the one on Blackhawk, sleek renovation, bigger lot and great views.

Its a good house and personal preferences/priorities vary for every buyer. This house will not come up on my initial qualified list. It backs up Preston - noise and auto pollution plus increased security risk as well. Reselling may take longer in a weak real estate market.

House looks great. But Dallasites love homey, traditional, dark wood and the like. It will likely take a bit longer to sell, but if you like it (and I do) go for it.

Only loss is for one who builds a contemporary as he may or may not get his money back, rest just buy to enjoy the home and buy n sell tad lower than market price. With all immigrants and transplants, average DFW buyer is not what it used to be. There are more and more buyers who want their home to suit their life style and taste, buying next buyer's dream is a strange idea.

Blackhawk homes are usually very pretty, but it's a busy street.

The inventory goes quickly, though.
