Co-founder of The Container Store lists home at $1.35 million
That's a small price to pay for 5 bedrooms and more than 4,000 square feet.
DALLAS You have to think that the family home of The Container Store co-founder Garrett Boone and his wife, Cecelia, would be just as right-brain enhancing as a trip to the Container Store. Don’t know about you, but every time I go to the Container Store, I leave with my brain feeling like it has been tweaked to the outer limits of organization. I walk a little taller, I can find my car keys with ease, papers aren’t dumped all over the kitchen counters, everything has a place and is in its place. Life is so, so very contained.
So what is it like to be inside the home of the folks who founded this great mecca of organization?
Welcome to 6522 Belmead, marketed by my good friend Lydia Player. I’ve been inside, but it’s been awhile. Lydia tells me the rambling ranch home is nestled on 1 acre like we all are in Hillcrest Estates, with a pool, guest house, and cabana. There are 4,212 pristine square feet on one level with five bedrooms and four and a half baths. The home was built in 1961 and has had only one or two owners. I know the Boones raised their family here. There is also a very unique, 588-square-foot workshop in the backyard. The home has a definitive Scandinavian feel, not unlike all those clean-lined containers over at the Container Store. Lydia says Frank Lloyd Wright devotees will also like it.
The pool is updated and includes a stone waterfall feature and a splash pool for kiddos. Perfect home for a growing family or grandparents who want to spend time with their grandchildren in nature right in the back yard. Hillcrest Estates also has one of the best private police patrols in town and is one of those areas the Pizza guys can never find. We actually rather like it that way!
Listed at $1.35 million.
