Meander past mature trees, lush, colorful gardens and houses dating from the 1890s to the present, but not too fast! The eclectic mix of architecture and landscape tells the remarkable story of the people who built and have lived in McKinney over the decades.
-McKinney Historic Preservation Office
McKinney appeals to so many due to the unique style of homes found within the city limits. Dependent on the neighborhood, one can find French chateaus, Mediterranean villas, Craftsman, Tudor, Ranch and Victorian styles. The highly sought-after Historic District contains many of these remarkable structures. Some of these homes have been updated, many are waiting to become a fixer-upper…all have wonderful stories to tell.
The home located at 711 West Lamar Street is one of the Historic District’s gems. Take a look!
Intimate yet spacious rooms make this three bedroom, three bath home a must see for the Buyer looking for charm and modern amenities. Enter the first of three living areas and find gleaming hardwood floors, a decorative brick fireplace, ample room for entertaining and everyday living, and, to the left, an inviting sun room overlooking a sparkling pool and private side yard. This living area flows to the well-located dining room which is enhanced with French doors. The kitchen is a chef’s dream and is flooded with natural light. It is located directly off the dining room and offers many amenities including double ovens, stainless steel appliances, a gas cook top, and centered butcher block island. A separate breakfast room sits opposite the peninsula counter top and overlooks the wood deck and large grassy backyard. There is an additional living area/den downstairs with built-ins which has the flexibility to be a cozy family room, convenient home office, or an additional guest bedroom given the adjacent full bathroom. The master bedroom suite is located downstairs and offers an additional sitting room off the master bath which could be a private retreat or office space. The large spa-like master bath has dual sinks, a separate shower, and a spacious walk-in closet. Two additional secondary bedrooms are located upstairs and share a full bath with dual sinks and combination shower/tub. This home sits on a landscaped and picturesque third-acre lot, is on a tree-lined street, and is just blocks from the growing downtown McKinney square.
To see this home in person, you can visit the open house this coming Sunday, September 17 from 2:00-4:00pm or contact Curt Elliott at 214-675-8353 for more information.
