Nestled in a walkable, residential neighborhood and ideally located nearby to the Downtown Plano Arts District. Close by you'll find shopping, restaurants, bars, entertainment, galleries, and more. This 1950s house is also within easy reach to mass transit and nearby major highways. The guest room and adjacent bathroom offers privacy for up to two, with the rest of the home also available for shared use - including a modern kitchen, dining room, living room, mud room, and spacious outdoor areas.

The space

Built in 1958, the house is well-situated in Downtown/Old Towne Plano. Renovated in 2016 the house retains its original hardwood floors throughout to preserve the vintage charm, with a number of modern updates as well. The hardwood floors are original, so they creak a little. I happen to like the charm of it, but a previous guest didn't so I'm mentioning it here.

A variety of outdoor living and dining spaces including a cozy front porch, relaxing deck with rocking chairs, a backyard fire pit perfect for socializing, and outdoor dining area for meals or doing some work on a warm Texas afternoon.

Inside is a cozy living room with a fireplace and television, dining room with seating for up to eight, a modern galley kitchen with stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, full-sized refrigerator, and a variety of small appliances (toaster, juicer, blender, crock pot, french press, and electric kettle) for guest use. Off the kitchen is a laundry area that guests are also free to use upon request.

Guest access

Guests will have private use of their guest room and guest bathroom. The guest room features a queen-sized bed with 250 thread-count sheets and ample pillows. There is also a closet supplied with hangers, a luggage rack, and fresh bathrobes. The room is also equipped with an Apple TV-connected television, plenty of outlets for device charging, and an adjustable ceiling fan. Depending on the weather, you may also sleep with the window open as the neighborhood is very safe and quiet.

During your stay the hall bathroom will be reserved for guest-only use and features a bathtub/shower. Plenty of towels provided as well as shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and extra toiletries (toothbrush, toothpaste, razor, shaving cream, etc.) available upon request.

The living room, dining room, kitchen, mud/laundry room, and all outdoor spaces (including the front porch, backyard, and deck) are shared spaces.

Guests do not have access to the office, master bedroom, or garage.

Interaction with guests

Depending on my work and travel schedule, I am happy to show you around and socialize, or leave you on your own - whatever you prefer. I can also provide you with information on attractions as well as running, walking, or cycling routes in the area.

Other things to note

I have a small (17 lb.) dog named Felix. He gets along with everyone and typically goes to work with me during the days.

You can tell Will has been doing this for a while...very clean and lovely smelling home. He was very responsive through messages whenever I had any questions. I would definitely stay again!

Will's home is decorated with modern accessories. The recently renovated bathroom is bright and pleasing. The guest bedroom is well appointed for guests, down to an umbrella in the closet...just in case. A car is beneficial, as the closest shopping and, restos are about a mile away. Be sure to checkout the revitalized downtown area and dine at one of several restos with delicious food.

Will's place is beautifully decorated, clean, and cozy. He was very accommodating for the change in my check-in time and the bed was so comfortable that I slept like a rock. The details in the decor and organized fashion of the guest room made me feel like I was staying in a five-star hotel room. I recommend Will's home for anyone staying in Plano for a night.

I haven't been everywhere yet, but it's on my list. I'm free-thinking native Texan with chronic wanderlust. I'm from Austin originally, but have called Dallas/Fort Worth home since 2006. I've lived and worked all over, including San Diego, Las Vegas, New Orleans, North Carolin…
