This is a nice house and lot size is great. I really like Whiffletree neighborhood and see no drawback with Plano Senior High feeder but for $800k, I would rather stay close to PWSH.

I 100% agree with that. I think that is the only reason this house isn't priced higher actually.

Another issue is that this isn't homeowner's stuff, house is staged with rental stuff which doesn't compliment it. I would even say that poor staging is their number one drawback. I like homes with well lived look, even if it is not perfect and even a little cluttered, stuff that turns a house into a home. If seller moves out then just leave house clean and empty, looks better than artificial staging that lacks soul.

Zoned to PHS, but you can request transfer to PWHS if that is really important to you. (There is a lot banter about PHS vs. PWHS. It's like comparing a BMW to a Mercedes ...).

LOL. This is one of few houses that we like. Love what they have done with the architecture, even though it's not really our style. It has two drawbacks to us. It's too dang big and zoned to PHS. Even if you kind people tell us that PHS is as good as PWHS, we only want 2/3 the size of that house. We'll come back to it though if we can't find what we like in the recommended areas.

Thank you for your response!

Nice home, but comes with a hefty property tax of $13K a year, and potentially large electricity bill (cooling/heating).

If someone is spending $800k on a house then hopefully they can afford their utility bills and property taxes. Plano taxes are on lower side, property tax on a $800k house would be much higher in places like Coppell or Lakewood. Only place where property tax would be lower, is Highland Park but you don't get much here for $800k.
