Welcome Home: A hidden gem in Frisco
Ryan Summerlin March 9, 2013
Welcome home … to 104 Alpine Drive, a single-family residence in sought-after Frisco.
Not every day does a four-bedroom home on a quarter acre priced at less than $500,000 come to the market here in Frisco, however, this week, it happened!
Don’t miss this great opportunity to own here in Frisco. The wonderfully sunny southern exposure to the living room and kitchen brings warmth to this well-loved home. Approximately 1,831-square-feet of finished living area and 1,218-square-feet of unfinished area on the garden level allows an owner plenty of room to grow in the future.
With the quarter acre lot and approval from the town of Frisco you could probably add more living space or a garage if needed.
This home is heated with a natural gas forced-air system and has a wonderful Timberline wood stove so you can enjoy a crackling fire in the family room on the garden level. It helps with the heating bill too! Oh, and I can’t forget the fireplace in the living room. Not as efficient as the wood stove, but hey, everyone enjoys the warmth and flames of a wood fireplace on a chilly winter’s eve. It’s just good for the soul.
Views to the sunny south offer Mount Royal and west you will see Wichita and Chief mountains. Out to the northwest from the master bedroom one can enjoy Buffalo Mountain. Out in front of the house, if you look down the street (yeah I know it’s a stretch, but beautiful never the less) you can see Grays and Torreys peaks and the Continental Divide. Just wonderful!
Tucked away behind a privacy fence in the back yard is the hot tub, ready to sooth those aching muscles after a long ski day, bike ride or hike. Or, you can just sit back and enjoy a starry night and a warming soak.
Why 104 Alpine Drive? Well, when I asked the seller if he had any comment about this property, he said “It has been a great home to raise our family.”
I am sure it would work well for any owner, their friend and family as a primary or second home. On another note, with approval from the town, it may work out well as an investment property for its next owner. A buyer would have to meet with the town planning and building departments to explore the possibilities.
It is just a short walk to Main Street or you can stop at Walter Byron Park along the way and enjoy the volleyball courts and/or the playground if you have children in tow (restrooms there too). The park is bordered on the south by Ten Mile Creek, so bring a fishing pole (don’t forget your fishing license) so you can wet a line while your friends and family enjoy the park. Finish it off with a picnic in the park or in the shelter of the pavilion if it is too sunny or rainy.
Main Street has so much to offer with its shops and restaurants. Whether its breakfast, lunch or dinner, choices abound. Residents, visitors and their guests enjoy browsing the shops for clothes, home accessories, books or T-shirt (yes, I said it, T-shirts). You can even enjoy homemade ice cream in a historic building that is an icon of Frisco’s early days.
Concerts in the historic park, fun down at the marina, the Nordic center and tubing hill, hiking in the surrounding national forest, the Barbeque Challenge, Fourth of July parade and fireworks – a small town celebrating in a big way, Main Street to the Rockies, the fun never ends …
But for now, I think this is where I will stop, because if I keep talking the place up, the owners are going to call me and let me know they like what I’ve written so much have decided to stay!
