Fabulous Family Home in Hot Housing Market Priced to Sell in Park Cities

The housing market is hot. And in the Park Cities? It is even hotter. And with prices like we have never seen before, it is safe to say that we truly do not know what to expect. That, however, is not the case here at 2709 Amherst Avenue in University Park where the owners and listing agent have priced this large home to sell. To put it candidly, a four-bedroom, 5.1 bathroom, and nearly 5,000 square feet 2000 construction under 2.5 million will not last long. Like what you see? It’s time to act fast.

There are many things we like about this home. For starters, we enjoy a good split entry. Guests are given access to formal areas before the home opens to a great room, kitchen, and second dining area that were basically drawn out for entertaining family and guests. There are two stone fireplaces, exceptional built-ins, and a butler’s pantry just to name a few amenities. The gorgeous wood floors are also something to be admired.

The primary suite features an exceptionally large closet for housing your wardrobe. There are dual vanities and dual shower heads so no fighting with your significant other in the morning about being slow in the bathroom. There is room for all here. The remaining three bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms and are spacious enough to accommodate kids and toys galore. Speaking of toys, the home also has a game room for movie watching and play date hosting.

The backyard is bound to be where the new owners spend the bulk of their free time. Between the picturesque and well-maintained gardens to the heated pool, it is the place to spend outdoor time all year round. The pool equipment was recently replaced, so no fear of needing a new pump or heater any time soon. Speaking of updates, the home was recently upgraded with a new roof and HVAC system as well.

This home is in University Park and zoned to attend Boone Elementary. Its convenient location has people on 75 in mere minutes and is within walking distance to Southern Methodist University. You are close to Central Market, Snider Plaza, and much more. If you’ve been looking to make the move into the Park Cities, this might be your window of opportunity.

To know Dallas is to love Dallas and all of the wonderful micro-neighborhoods and excellent suburbs within and around this fabulous city. Matching people with the best home and location for them is a passion for me and I look forward to it every day. Primarily specializing in University Park, Highland Park, Southlake, Westlake, North Dallas, Preston Hollow, Devonshire, Bluffview, Lakewood, Uptown, the gorgeous Dallas High Rises and the newer developments in the areas of Plano, Frisco, McKinney & Parker all depending on what my clients need and prefer.  These areas represent some of the most recognized neighborhoods, school districts, and suburbs in the metroplex and present a diverse array of lifestyles and opportunities in order to meet your real estate goals be it schools, price point, style, location, or investment strategy. Working with buyers, sellers, investors, and relocation and speaking both English and Spanish allow me to often represent people through generations even as their children find a need for college housing, a new home after graduation, homes for employees as they transfer to Dallas and as they downsize and upsize in life. A home is everything. Life happens in a home. It’s where hopes and dreams are born. My strong team of several agents and coordinators has a keen ability to coordinate all of the details of today’s sophisticated buying transactions from finding that perfect home, negotiating the transaction, arranging the financing, inspecting the property, and successfully closing to selling including the staging, pricing, and marketing in order to get the best price in the least amount of time.  Strong, personal relationships with other REALTORS, Luxury Portfolio International, and the excellent knowledge of the Metroplex expands available real estate offerings through powerful local and global resources to give you the best options and choices.

Background: I have been representing buyers and sellers of real estate since my college days while I earned a BS in Environmental Biology and Chemistry. As it turns out, real estate has always been my passion. I do have three accomplished daughters: the oldest is an attorney practicing locally, another is a pharmacist and the youngest is a marketing executive with an international firm.  Speaking Spanish has allowed us to live in several other countries as my children grew up and help me when representing clients from Mexico, South America, and Europe. I strongly believe in giving back to my community and volunteering at Equest for rehabilitative horsemanship as well as supporting the American Lung Association, Communities in Schools, and The Salvation Army.
