J.P. King Auction Company to Auction Willow Bend Place Estate

French Traditional Plano, TX Estate Boasts Wooded Privacy and Security

PLANO, TX--(Marketwired - October 31, 2014) - J.P. King Auction Company announces the forested Willow Bend Place estate at 5500 Cavendish Court to be auctioned Thursday, November 20, at 11:00 a.m. (CT). Minutes away from downtown Dallas, Willow Bend Place is in the recently named "America's Safest City" by Forbes magazine and Plano schools consistently score among the highest in the nation.

Resting on more than five wooded acres, the seven bedroom, eleven bathroom and five fireplace home, built in 1993, was renovated in 2010 by Peckham Custom Builders. The 36 room estate is designed as a Smart Home and includes numerous energy saving features such as Energy Star appliances and state of the art technology. There is an interior-exterior security system and the safe room in the master suite is also storm proof. The foundation is pier and beam.

"Recently, a professional security company reviewed the property, reporting Willow Bend Place estate is ideal for both security and privacy," said Mike Urtso, owner.

The double lot spans two cul de sacs with the drive winding around the pond toward the French traditional architecture home. Each of the seven bedrooms features en-suite baths and have beautiful views of the estate grounds. The gated motor court includes a workroom with sink and workbench for the six-car garage and is attached to the home.

A spacious patio leads to a heated, gunite swimming pool which includes a cleaning system. Near the swimming pool is a separate spa/hot tub.

"Willow Bend Place estate is an amazing house for entertaining, the flow from the front door through the entire downstairs to the huge patio is perfectly designed for hosting. While, at the same time, there are so many amenities to the house that make it homey and comfortable for the family," said Stacy Urtso, owner.

The sides and back of the estate are dense with mature maple and oak trees providing an unusually shady arboretum-style landscape in contrast to the typically flat open planes of Plano. A French formal rose garden provides a lovely walking trail. The back of the property is bordered by White Rock Creek which feeds into a fully stocked Koi pond on the estate. The residence is adjacent to a greenbelt and Gleneagles Country Club.

"The setting of the house will take your breath away because it is nestled between a pond and creek. There is serenity in the views from every room. Although it is a large house, it is also a comfortable home," said Mike Urtso, owner.

"When I got out of the car for the first time to look at the property to renovate it, I did not feel like I was in the middle of the city. The backyard is a hidden gem with a canopy of trees and great for privacy. The toll way is only five minutes away and it is 20 minutes from the front door to downtown," said Stacy Urtso, owner.

Property tours are available by appointment beginning November 11 by contacting the Auction Information Center at 800-558-5464. Also, for additional information on the Willow Bend Place estate, visit the J.P. King website at www.jpking.com.
