With larger lots and amazing deals, it is no wonder homebuyers have been looking to North Texas for their next property purchase. One home in particular definitely puts on the southern charm boasting a long list of extras and upgrades for a very reasonable price tag.

Here is some of what Candy Evans reported about this home in Candy’s Dirt:

It’s no secret that buyers coming into North Texas are increasingly seeking homes in the exurbs for good reason: They get great schools and generally better value the further out they go — more spacious, more land, lower property taxes.


I’m going to show you a home right now that might make any Dallas resident call the movers. It has everything on the coveted list: a beach-entrance saltwater pool, wine cellar, three-car garage converted to a home gym, home theater, double primary suites all ensuite, gameroom, and a beautiful, treed lot.


If it was located north of LBJ, you are looking at $3.5 million, south of LBJ — at least $4 million. You are going to faint when I tell you the price. In fact, I’m not going to tell you the price ’till later. Here is a big hint: the house is in Forney, about 20 miles east of Dallas. Considered part of the sprawling “MetroTex,” Forney offers a quieter life and loads of antiques. That’s because Forney is known as the “antique capital of the world.”


This spacious, well-appointed home is a tastefully upgraded version of what has been built in the neighborhood. Built in 2016, it boasts almost 3,800 square feet on about a quarter-acre lot that backs up to a greenbelt. And the home is within easy walking distance of the local elementary school.


The lower level is the real star: a striking interior that features custom lighting, ceiling fans, and an array of premium upgraded finishes. The open-concept layout connects the living room, kitchen, and dining area, creating an inviting area perfect for family gatherings and entertaining.
