This English cottage home is cozy and charming on a large corner lot, surrounded by lush landscaping with incredible variety. Vaulted cathedral ceilings, hardwood floors, gorgeous millwork, and crown molding throughout display the exquisite attention to detail that Custom Cottage Homes is known for. All rooms are generously sized and an abundance of storage is found throughout. You will love the master suite with its charming sitting room and gorgeous master bath! Equally stunning are your formal rooms and your beautiful kitchen. This lovely home boasts four fireplaces, two of which are Heatilator gas fireplaces designed for comforting warmth on cold days. New carpet, beautiful paint, and a fabulous floorplan further add to the appeal of this fantastic home.
The moment you step through the door you feel the welcoming warmth of this charming home. The first thing you notice is the inviting glow of the fireplace in the formal living room, framed by a wide, beautifully cased opening. Natural light spills through a high dormer window and French doors to create an open and airy feel. Hardwood floors extend from the entry into the formal room and down the hall in each direction, inviting you further into this lovely home. Tall sloped ceilings add charm and are framed by crown molding with corner block details. To your right is a hall that leads to the master suite and two secondary bedrooms; to your left is the kitchen and formal dining room, with the family room, media room, and two more secondary bedrooms beyond.
The warm glow of the fire, visible from the entry, draws you into this lovely formal living room. Surrounded by rich marble tile, the fireplace is flanked by elegant columns that support a deep mantle perfect for displaying some of your favorite pieces. On either side of the fireplace, pocket doors in textured glass slide open to your study. These are also accented with columns on the outside edges to balance the fireplace, while display ledges above the doors echo the mantel for an appealing and cohesive appearance. Overhead the vaulted cathedral ceiling is highlighted by strong beams to add a sense of coziness while still enhancing the spacious feel.
Hardwood floors continue from your living room into your study, where you can enjoy the other side of your two-way Heatilator fireplace. Rich library paneling surrounds the room, imparting a luxurious feel, and the gorgeous coffered ceiling is nice and high for a sense of spacious elegance. Windows along the back wall frame views of your pool and lush landscaping. On either side of the windows, open shelving is beautifully finished to keep you organized. Below this is a long counter with two desks and plenty of closed cabinetry and drawers. Generous proportions easily accommodate a central table or a large desk for additional workspace in this handsomely-appointed study. From the study, a door to one side opens directly to your master bedroom while the door opposite opens to your kitchen and eating area.
Returning to your entry, a hall to your right leads to your master bedroom, two secondary bedrooms, and an enormous amount of storage with six different closets and a large recessed niche. The secondary bedrooms are situated along the front of your home, while your master suite is adjacent to your peaceful back yard.
Entering the master, you first notice the incredible sense of bright spaciousness that comes from streaming natural light and a soaring beamed cathedral ceiling. Windows along the back wall overlook your outdoor retreat, visually connecting you with nature, while a glass-paneled door in the adjacent sitting room opens directly to your patio. At the end of your master bedroom, your separate sitting area is a nice and bright spot to enjoy backyard views. Plush new carpet adds to the comfort of this space. A screen allows you to keep the door open on pleasant days, while on cooler days your beautiful gas fireplace brings welcome warmth. Paneled columns in clean white support a beautiful mantel, with additional millwork forming the stunning overmantel. Opposite the patio door, shutters separate your sitting area from your master bath.
Entering your master bath, you find yourself in a room designed for pampering and relaxation. A deep soaker tub is centered under shutters that open to views of your sitting room fireplace and windows that frame the natural beauty of your back yard. Opposite this, a gorgeous furniture vanity is richly stained, offering expansive counter space and two beautiful vessel sinks. Mirrors above the vanity are deeply stained in heavy wood to perfectly coordinate with the furniture and create a striking focal point in this space. Crown molding surrounds your master bath with elegance. On either side of your vanity, the large walk-through closet provides loads of hanging space and open shelving. A makeup area is situated at one end of the closet, while just outside the other door your large stand-up shower is tiled to the ceiling in slate, surrounding you with rich color and texture.
Across the hall from your master suite, both secondary bedrooms are generously sized and finished with crown molding and bright front windows. The center bedroom is newly carpeted, and both boast large closets. Between the rooms a Jack-and-Jill bath thoughtfully offers a long vanity with double sinks and plenty of storage. A separate door opens to the wet area, where the tub is tucked under a charming arch and finished in clean white. A dormer window over the tub spills natural light into this space, and beautiful slate covers the floor.
Returning to your home’s entry, a left turn leads you to your formal dining room and kitchen. At the front of your home, your dining room is open to the hall through a long sweeping arch. Huge picture windows are centered under the lofty cathedral ceiling, and the center beam is accented with dentil molding. Rib beams extend down the sides of the ceiling and end at beautifully detailed corbels for an elegant finish. Hardwood floors gleam in the light from the lovely bowl chandelier centered in this space.
Across the hall, double doors open to your kitchen and your breakfast area beyond. These rooms form one large open space, united by a soaring cathedral ceiling with a heavy center beam that runs the entire length of the room. Deeply stained cross beams add extra interest to the beautiful ceiling.
Your breakfast area is at the back of your home, with a focal wall that is striking in cut stone and random brick accents. This frames a window that overlooks your pool and spa for gorgeous outdoor views. A glass door to the side offers quick access to outdoor dining and entertainment. Overhead, a large chandelier defines your table.
In your kitchen, a long counter wraps the corner to form a peninsula island with bar seating. This forms the boundary between the kitchen and eating area while still maintaining an open flow of conversation. The bar front is also finished in cut stone and brick accents to echo the feature wall of the breakfast area, tying these two spaces together. Light creamy cabinetry in your kitchen is outfitted with dark hardware that picks up the darker stain of the center island. Rich granite tops all the counters to unite the cabinetry into a cohesive whole. At your 6-burner gas rangetop, antiqued stain on the surrounding cabinetry and double-stacked cabinets to the ceiling lend visual weight to this area. A lovely mosaic backsplash with dimensional accents further sets your cooking center apart as a beautiful focal point. Drawer storage below keeps pots and pans within easy reach and your walk-in pantry holds everything you need for a quick and healthy supper. Other stainless appliances include double wall ovens, a microwave, dishwasher, and built-in refrigerator. A large arch connects your kitchen to your family room for an open feel, and your thoughtfully-positioned farmhouse sink fosters togetherness while meals are being prepared.
Generously sized, your spacious family room is equally adept at handling large gatherings or hosting more intimate groups. Heavy crown molding circles this room and is echoed in the lovely moldings that frame the back windows with their show-stopping views of your outdoor fireplace and patio. Opposite the windows, French doors bring in more natural light and open to an enclosed courtyard where you can enjoy fresh breezes and listen to birdsong. In the corner, your wood-burning fireplace warms the space with a stone surround that extends to the ceiling. Brick accents the raised hearth and wood columns support the heavy formal mantel. Above the mantel, exquisite millwork is accented with picture frame molding for an elegant touch. Two arched doorways lead to other areas of your home; one to the laundry and garage and the other to the media room and your other two secondary bedrooms.
Your media room is also positioned near the back of your home, with plush carpet and crown molding for a comfortable and inviting space. At the front, the recessed media niche is framed with columns and millwork to create a luxurious feel. A patio door opens directly to your outdoor living space, while another door opens to the garage, ready for a stair leading to your expansive decked attic should you choose to add an extra room or two to your home. A powder bath nearby is charming with a furniture style vanity, vessel sink, and crown molding. Candle wall sconces offer soft lighting in addition to the overhead recessed lighting.
Continuing through your media room, an archway at the front accesses both secondary bedrooms on this side of your home. These bedrooms are both spacious, with large reach-in closets, new carpets, and windows overlooking the beautifully landscaped yard. Between these two bedrooms the shared bathroom has a long counter with double sinks and ample storage. The separate wet area includes a stand-up shower and a door to the back patio, allowing this to also function as a convenient pool bath.
In the front corner of your home, your laundry room is beautifully spacious and bright with lower cabinets that form a long U-shaped counter around the perimeter of the room. A built-in desk is situated under the front window for inspiring natural views. Upper cabinets run the length of both side walls and are sized at one end to accommodate an extra refrigerator or upright freezer. All cabinets are painted a creamy white and a stainless sink is a thoughtful addition to this hardworking laundry room.
Across from your laundry room, a coat closet stands adjacent to your garage, ready to corral jackets and other items as your family comes through the door. Entering the garage, you find 3 full parking spaces, with a double bay door in between two single bay doors. The back single bay door opens to a space perfect for parking motorcycles or lawn equipment. A shelved closet in the corner of this half-bay neatly keeps items up and off the floor so that your garage stays neat and tidy.
This picturesque English cottage home is situated on a quiet corner lot, tucked among gorgeous landscaping with well over 75 trees including live oaks, red oaks, crepe myrtles, cedars, ornamentals, Japanese maples, and Little Jim magnolias. Planted for a variety of height and color, beds in both the front and back yards feature perennials that will come back year after year to surround you with lush vegetation. The front of your home is charming with a mix of stone, brick, and cedar accents that give a homey and welcoming feel. An arched wooden door invites you into to a front courtyard with low stone walls and sunlight filtering through the surrounding trees. This is the perfect spot on fresh crisp mornings to listen to the birds while enjoying the paper and a cup of coffee! From the front drive and the parking area, a charming stone path leads past more lush landscaping to your beautiful French front doors, flanked by two glowing lanterns.
Behind your home, your large yard offers multiple options for entertaining friends or relaxing as a family. Immediately adjacent to your house, your spacious covered patio shades a large seating area. Doors to your breakfast area and media room provide an easy indoor-outdoor flow and numerous windows offer a visual connection with your family room. A fabulous wood burning fireplace in cut stone and brick gives welcome warmth on cooler nights. Its raised hearth extends all the way around for extra seating. Recessed lights, a ceiling fan, outdoor speakers, and wiring for a tv enable you to take advantage of the great Texas weather for year-round outdoor living.
Moving off your patio, stamped concrete extends out and around your enticing lagoon pool to offer plenty of options for sunny lounging. For those that prefer to swim, your pool sparkles with a tanning ledge and a piled rock waterfall feature that flows down in front of a hidden bench. A smaller waterfall flows over stacked stone from your raised and heated spa into the pool below. Just past your pool and your outdoor kitchen with stone counters and built-in grill, a captivating flagstone path wanders to a small patio shaded by cedar trees, the perfect spot for a quiet afternoon lunch. Large grassy side yards on either end of the pool area offer space to throw a football or hold an impromptu soccer game.
