The Space

Who needs hallway noise? Crack-of-dawn maid service? $6 for a bag of peanuts? Spare yourself. Get more peace, more privacy, and more space. Arrive jet lagged and exhausted, but enter this haven of rest and enjoy true peace and comfort. My past guests agree that they left their worries behind at the door, and you will too. No doggie smell, shag carpet, or avocado appliances here.

THE AMENITIES
This traditional Texas ranch is packed with amenities. No skimping here either. For instance, you get brand new berber carpet, a clean, new TRANE HVAC system with filter changed every two months, and a powerful, full-sized Hoover vacuum in the hall closet (In case you don't want Elena to clean the house for you). Every room has a ceiling fan!

The thing that makes our home unique is that it feels like a home. The intimate trifles of our lives are still happily displayed on the walls for you to enjoy as you linger here.

Oh, and of course we have FREE, WIRELESS WIFI in every room.

THE KITCHEN AND BREAKFAST ROOM
The kitchen has stainless steel appliances including LG refrigerator with ice maker in the French doors, Italian tile flooring, and practically every appliance and culinary tool you could want including two juicers, Prepare your meals using stainless steel waterless cookware, serve it with Oneida silverware and serving pieces and full sets of matching dishes We even have a Keurig coffee maker!

The breakfast room has an antique oak table and chairs that you can configure for intimate candlelight dinners of 2 or a party for 8. Throw your linens into a Maytag washer and dryer in the adjoining laundry room.

PATIO AND POOL
An open floor plan and Fung Shui design elements balance your energy and relax everyone who enters here. Once inside the home, the French doors to the patio, BBQ grill, and pool are straight ahead.

Outside, settle into the soft patio furniture, prop your feet up on a matching ottoman, and watch the Cardinals and Blue Jays feed and bathe within 15 feet of you. OR read under a ceiling fan and light. Feel free to jump into that huge pool any time of the day or night. Unlike a hotel, this is your yard, and the redwood privacy fence protects you from prying eyes. Swimsuits are optional. :-) We have citronella torches everywhere so mosquitoes are not a problem for us.

DEN
A wood burning fireplace and raised brick hearth dominate a 22 SF den with Thomasville leather chairs and a Findley sectional sofa. Two cathedral skylights tower above the room for extra light. When you are ready for Direct TV, you have over 100 channels. Feel free to indulge in a movie. Just like a hotel, we charge only $2 USD for each one you watch and deduct that from the deposit.

LIBRARY/OFFICE
The spacious library boasts books of every kind, a comfy Ethan Allen arm chair, lots of natural light, and a home office setup with huge Ethan Allen cherry desk, printer, and filing cabinet. Feel free to use the games and puzzles hidden on lower shelves.

BEDROOMS AND BATHS
Down the bedroom hallway, 4 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms offer you flexible sleep options in queen, full, and twin configurations. There’s also room for another twin bed here if you need to add it.

The master suite is about 14 x 14 SF and features a queen-sized bed with a real Tempur-Pedic mattress. (I am such a bed snob.) That is the most expensive mattress available and with good reason. Cover it with our high end linens, and you will sleep like a baby.

The bath has a brand new Italian tile and tumbled stone shower and the coolest sunken tub with a ledge where you can sit candles, incense, and an iPod to enhance your restful soak. Spread your toiletries over six feet of well-lit counter space with double sinks. Store your clothes and luggage in the his-and-her walk in closet.

Guest Rooms have Tempur-pedic or Sealy mattresses in excellent condition with foam pads, great linens, and blackout curtains/shades.

PARKING
The garage and driveway are hidden in the back of the property, through the laundry room. In Texas, most neighborhoods feature alleys so that you park your cars behind the house and enter through the garage. In addition, you can easily park another four cars at the curb in front, and all that parking is free!

GETTING AROUND
You can drive to downtown Dallas in 25 minutes or over to Legacy Park in about 15 minutes by bus or call.. More likely you will want to drive to Frisco, Allen, McKinney, or West Plano. You are between freeways and can get most places in 20 minutes. --or---Why not try the Dart commuter rail for an easy trip to downtown Dallas? It is new, clean, uncrowded, and cost effective. The bus stop in a three-minute walk from the house.

The neighborhood is extremely quiet with a fire station, shopping, and restaurants of all kinds half mile away. Plano has good animal control rules in place, so that adds to the peace and safety.

We'll see ya’ll in PLANO!

  • This house was great! The hostess was always available to answer questions. We arrived to a meticulously clean, comfortable, cool home. The pool was sparkling clean and all the rooms were large. This is a steal for the amount of house you get for the money.

    Thanks!

About
We are a clean, mature, fun loving couple, with 5 sons and 6 grandchildren. Both my husband and I have college degrees. He worked for Xerox for 30 years; I am a business writer. The dog died last year, and all the grandkids are elsewhere starting their lives, so we have rented our home and plan to work our way around the world. Since we are also hosts, we will take good care of your home. As long as you have good Internet so I can work a bit each day, we are flexible. We left home in July, 2012, so by the time you read this, who knows what stories we will have to tell!
