This six-bedroom Plano estate has a spiral staircase in a bathroom and room for your nine cars

Built in 1999, this estate, priced at $4.69 million, sits on 2.73 acres in the Willow Bend Country neighborhood of Plano. It was recently updated and features a wealth of detailed design, from ornate crown moldings to a two-story closet.

The property has six bedrooms, eight bathrooms and three half-bathrooms, but listing agent Michelle Field noted that there is an additional “in-law” suite and separate guest apartment that add three more bedrooms and two more bathrooms.

Field said she thinks the home could suit a family housing multiple generations, especially with the generous amount of extra space in the “in-law” and guest quarters.

Peer inside this designer’s $1.85 million Prosper home with modern touches and garages for eight cars

Situated on more than an acre in the Prosper neighborhood of Whispering Farms, this home built in 2005 has been recently updated with modern finishes and an on-trend color palette.

The 5,647-square-foot home at 2721 Lakeview Drive has four bedrooms, four bathrooms and one half bathroom. It’s owned by a designer who updated it throughout, said listing agent Stacy Cate of Compass.

“I think she just really elevated it by very carefully, and very well planned, touching every surface,” Cate said.

A winding staircase is a focal point at the entry of the home. The formal dining room sits to the left of the front door, with a formal living room to the right. Both are open to each other in the larger, open-floor-plan room.

A hallway with wine storage connects the dining area to the kitchen. The kitchen was part of the updates and features a black-and-white color scheme

Ten Great ’90s Concept Cars We Still Dream About

Hard as it may be for some to believe, 1990 was some 30 years ago now, and the cars we know and love from that decade have become, simply, classic. Look back at the era’s production models and you’ll see an evolutionary period, where straight lines largely gave way to more curvaceous shapes; nostalgia for classics of the 1950s and ’60s was heightened, and new “retro” designs were all the rage; and new technology in the form of early single-clutch paddle-shift transmissions and electronic stability-control systems helped to usher in a rethink of how enthusiasts could experience vehicle performance. But production cars weren’t the only things changing; the ’90s wrought some of the most amazing concept cars ever created. Today, we take a look at 10 of our favorite ’90s concept cars all these years later to see how well they stand the test of time.
