After months of talking about this relocation to Austin, TX, we finally put our house on the market. What an ordeal!! I cleaned and cleaned and cleaned some more. Whenever I was finished with one room, "someone" would make a mess again and it would have to be cleaned again.
I took 180 pictures yesterday in order to get enough pictures for the virtual tour and still photos for the MLS. Then, my listing agent also came over and took some pictures. I'm not sure how many he took.
Yes, you read that correctly... I have a listing agent and it's not me! I interviewed the top two agents in the area, me and this other guy, and I decided to go with the second best agent around! LOL!
I live in the Woods of SpringCreek in NorthEast Richardson, TX. It's in Collin County which means much lower taxes and award winning Plano schools. My house is on the North side of the street facing South. No "direct" sun gets in the house so summer bills are lower than my last house which was east and west facing.
The house backs to a creek, hence Woods of Spring"Creek". Tons of trees behind the house with views from the upstairs gameroom and my office which is one of 5 bedrooms.
There are 5 bedrooms, 4 full baths, 3 Living Areas, 2 Dining Areas and a 3 car garage with bunches and bunches of cabinets for storage. The master is downstairs at the back of the house for privacy. The master bath has an oversized shower, jetted tub, double vanities at his and hers heights, built-ins for linens and a huge walk-in closet with many built-ins and seasonal racks.
The bedroom downstairs is great for an office or guests who don't want to walk up stairs. It has a walk-in closet and full bathroom attached.
The floorplan is very open with the Family room blending into the Nook and Kitchen. The family room features a Slate surround, gas Fireplace. The Kitchen features Granite Counters, Gas Cooktop, Bosch Dishwasher, tumbled marble backsplash with slate inserts, and a huge walk-in pantry.
The Nook overlooks the Covered Patio. The Covered Patio is on a Flagstone surface made with Cedar Posts and Limestone footings. The backyard backs to the Creek with trees. Each of the sides of the house have 8" fences, one side is board on board with steel posts. The back is a red brick wall that adds some nice color to the yard.
The upstairs Gameroom is HUGE! Currently, we have a standard size Pool Table, couch, entertainment center and a complete gym with treadmill and arm press thingy. It's HUGE!! There are 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths upstairs, one with double vanities.
Other features are plantation shutters, slate entry, curved staircase, utility room with sink, fridge, & gas dryer connections, gutters, security, and much more. You must see this house! It's one of the larger lots and yards in the neighborhood.
And, the City of Richardson offers two trash days a week along with recylce pick-up every single week. Many neighboring cities offer trash once a week and recycling every 3-4 weeks. Richardson is big on keeping their area clean. The Woods of Springcreek also have Crime Watch in the neighborhood and the HOA helps brings the neighbors together with social events and constant email updates with news and events around the area.
Come make Richardson your home!
