If you’ve always loved the underground house at 2001 N. Buckner Blvd., you may soon have the chance to build your very own. A developer based in India has proposed a cluster of earth-sheltered homes just like this earth-friendly East Dallas landmark. A prerequisite of ownership, however, is a lawnmower. At least that’s our bet.
According to an NBC (Channel 5) report, the developer, Total Environment, wants to build 122 houses on 23 acres, with the other half of the 55-acre development remaining mostly wild, with hike and bike trails for residents. The homes will be priced in line with Dallas’ first underground house, which was marketed back in 2014 for $870,000. Each home in the Frisco development will run around $900,000.
