While house-hunters tend to envision Thanksgiving dinners or Memorial Day barbecues when searching for their forever home, don’t forget about spooky season. Think of what makes a home perfect for trick-or-treating. Is it a great front porch? A deep front yard for decorating? Walkability? All of the above?
Allie Beth Allman & Associates has listings that can make all your Halloween dreams come to life. Here are four for your consideration.
The Mediterranean design at 7130 Brookcove Lane in Green Cove Estates is offered by Jean Bateman. With 7,648 square feet of living space, the stage is set for your imagination to soar. The front entrance is defined by stone arches that can be adorned with flowers to create a whimsical fantasy or made eerie with Halloween decorations. For soirees, bring guests out to the resortlike backyard, which has expansive patios and a pool that can serve as a mysterious lagoon.
If you treat yourself to year-round luxury living at Cliff Kessler’s listing at 11038 Snow White Drive, everyone can enjoy stopping by as Oct. 31 comes around. The circa-1955 midcentury modern design features a large front lawn with tall trees, making it an ideal canvas for Halloween displays. Consider aiming colorful lighting up through the branches to set the scene, as children hurry up the long walkway for treats. Add a bit of audio to create a festive experience for all the senses.
Part of what makes trick-or-treating so special is walking from house to house, a delight at the Vickery Place listing at 5318 Goodwin Ave., brought by Sue Krider. The four-bedroom home is close to the trendy restaurants in the Knox Henderson neighborhood and features a welcoming front porch, a cheery yellow façade and chic interior spaces.
At the Tudor-style home at 2960 Phyllis Lane in Farmers Branch, fairytale-like architecture, an arched front door and landscaping broadcast an enchanting effect, while outdoor lighting puts families at ease on dark and chilly Halloween nights. The 4,133-square-foot residence is represented by Marianne Percy.
