I have some super-excited clients right now who are joining the Custom Home Crowd on Camacho (as I like to call them). They just closed on Alan Muskin’s spec home – you know, the one with the flat roof – and like all the houses over there, the view from upstairs is spectacular! The home sits in the middle of the block and overlooks Lake Park, across to the Mosaic Apartments, Dell Children’s Hospital and West to UT and downtown. As it turns out, they will be living right next door to another one of my clients who is currently building with Muskin. It has been so much fun to watch the house go from concepts to drawings to reality. They recently installed the divided light windows, which are so high-impact; the style of the home adds nicely to the diversity of the architecture on the street.
Other exciting news from Camacho Corner is that the last Parade home from 2009 has gone under contract. Sales had been slow to start on these $1 million+ homes, but with increasing confidence of buyers (and slight price adjustments by the sellers!) the custom homes and lots have been selling quite well. Of the 15, there are two remaining lots on the street; formerly, both owned by Marshall Durrett however, apparently Muskin’s success has given him the confidence to buy Durrett out of one of them.
David Weekley has begun construction on their first of four large estate homes on Mattie Street, across from Lake Park. It will be around 3200 sq. ft., four bedrooms with the master down. Similarly to the other custom homes, all of the DW estate homes will achieve a 5-Star Green rating as well as have the LEED certification (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design). Interested buyers who get in early enough may have the opportunity to customize some of the interior features. Currently, the list price of the home is $795,000.
