Oohh, I see some discounted Blu Dot hitting Craigslist once the staging is over!
Seriously, my agent and I walked this one before it was renoed. I remeber thinking “too close to 2222”, and “what a shame”. Sloping back yard, piers needed work, needed french drain, and some serious energy efficient windows and upgrades. But the original price was really good; it was more than I could take on.
Congrats to the seller. Good luck.

Walked through this house last Saturday….amazing. You don’t often see quality remodels like this. I think the home owner is a designer, you can tell. It is a little too modern for my taste but well worth a visit. And I am pretty sure they did extensive foundation work (addressing the comment before me)!

Don’t look for any discounted blu dot!! This house isn’t staged, it all belongs to me! Thanks for the compliment though! Yes, we did an overhaul, but addressed all the crazy issues, except the 2222 location. Guess living on Shoal Creek Blvd kinda makes you forget you are a few doors down from it. Open house this sat and sun. Come take a peak!

@ Sarah- Just realized this was you. Considering you are my best friend I think your opinion is way biased. haha. Thanks for the comment. Way too modern for you?? duh.

@ Jenn. Thanks – good stuff. Of course I wasn’t implying you didn’t address the issues. I was just commenting on the condition when I saw it. Too bad about the Blu Dot. I’ll just keep pestering Kristin at IF+D instead. 🙂
